Add a utility/mudroom: An all-purpose room can be added to your house or “borrowed” from part of the garage or basement. An attractive mudroom is ideal for taking off muddy shoes (or drying off a wet dog), and depositing school or office stuff. It can include a bench to sit on while you pull off your boots, hooks to hang raincoats and sports gear, and even a compact washer and dryer so dirty sports uniforms can go right into the laundry.
Family room/library area: A central area like the family room is a great place to create a large desk/office area. Spacious surfaces can hold several computers and additional outlets and wireless charging pads work well for keeping your tablets and phones ready. You can also add built-in shelves for book and photos, drawers for digital device accessories, and other creative solutions to reflect your personal style, yet retain modern conveniences. A central desk area is a good place to catch up with the kids while they do their homework, and a great creative environment for you to work when you’re by yourself.
Kitchens and bathrooms: These are the two rooms that can increase the value of your house the most when you renovate. And let’s face it, you spend a lot of time in them, so why not make them more organized, efficient and attractive . For example, you can expand the footprint of your bathroom to add a vanity with two sinks, or open up a wall between the kitchen and dining room for a more modern “Great Room” feel. The options for kitchen and bathroom makeovers are almost endless. That’s why it’s best to work with a professional remodeler who can listen to your needs, offer options based on your budget, and give you the results that meet the highest standards in the industry.
Total home makeovers & additions: A total renovation of your home is a big step. But if well done, it can mean incredible satisfaction for the homeowner and a huge jump in value for the house. This often involves adding several new rooms, and can extend into the existing house space to reconfigure rooms, improve storage and accessibility. It can give your old house a new look and feel that is consistent and reflective of your personal style.

If you’re considering decks or other remodeling projects, below is some information that will help educate you about some options.
Most decks in this area are made with one of the following materials:
Pressure treated wood-Lowest initial cost; Highest maintenance of all decking materials, will likely require replacement boards; Splinters, cracks, splits, warps, stains, and scratches easily; will last 10-15 years when properly maintained.
Redwood and cedar- Higher initial cost; High maintenance; requires regular sealing for best performance; Subject to some cracking and splintering, resists rotting and insects, does stain and scratch easily; will last 15-20 years when properly maintained.
Hardwood (such as IPE, Massaranduba, and Mahogany)- Higher initial cost; Moderate maintenance; requires some staining/sealing to retain finish; Few splinters, highly resistant to deterioration, does not scratch or stain easily; will last 40+ years when properly maintained.
Composites and vinyl/PVC- Higher initial cost; Lowest maintenance; long lasting color and texture, especially PVC and capped composites; Overcomes performance issues of wood; composites stain, scratch, and fade, but PVC and capped composites are more resilient; Reputable manufacturers offer warranties typically for 25 years but these decks will last much longer when properly maintained.
NOTE: All decks, regardless of materials and construction, should be inspected annually for safety and cleaned with soap and water each year to maintain best appearance.
