USEFUL TIPS TO PRIORITIZE HOME REMODELING PROJECTS

Useful Tips To Prioritize Home Remodeling Projects

Despite the renewed interest of Americans in spending money on home remodeling projects, choosing which ones to prioritize remains a major problem. If you share the same sentiment, Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis shares useful tips to help you focus on the right remodel:

Know How Much Disruption You Could H andle

Living through a renovation can be exhausting. Even if you’re not doing the dirty job yourself, the mess and the noise are unavoidable. One of the first things you need to do is to determine how long a particular project would take to complete. This way, you can assess if you have the energy level to deal with the mess of construction.

Of all home projects, replacement of patio doors and windows is among the least disruptive. Although you may have to wait for weeks to get your new units made, installing exterior doorsand windows takes just one day to complete.

Listen to Your Budget

Of course, the kinds of projects you can tackle depends on what your bank account permits. Delaying the ones you want due to lack of money could be disappointing, but incurring debt because of home improvement doesn’t feel good either.

If you really must tackle certain remodels, explore different sources of funds available at your disposal. Although more than 80% of homeowners pay cash, the rest uses credit cards and home equity financing options.

Decide on the Rooms You Want to Prioritize

Some homeowners want to concentrate on public spaces before any room to impress guests, while others turn bedrooms into havens to make themselves happy. Determine which one of your projects would facelift the areas closest to your heart.

One of the biggest advantages of getting your windows is transforming the look and functionality of your entire home overnight. Window replacement contributes to curb appeal, energy efficiency, security, and weather resistance, offering an all-around benefit.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
