North Metro Atlanta Remodeling Contractors

Are you thinking about remodeling your home? Do you want an updated kitchen or updated bathrooms? Have you considered knocking down a wall to create a more open living space in your home?

Licensed Contractors and Insured Workers

Home remodeling should be performed by licensed contractors and skilled workers who are insured. If any of your home renovation involves a change in electrical, plumbing, or structural work check with your local jurisdiction about pulling a permit.

Pulling permits will help insure that the work is performed according to local building code standards. This is for your own safety.

It also is good to pull permits so that when you sell your house the buyer's home inspector will know that the job was done right. Otherwise you risk a home inspector finding work not according to code which may be expensive to bring up to code right at the time you just want to sell.

Remodeling and Home Renovation Adds Value

I show clients a lot of homes that are undesirable because they are outdated and overpriced. The homes are clean and functional and well taken care of. But the kitchens are outdated. The bathrooms have tile that is in good shape but colors and style several decades old. Outdated homes that have not been remodeled do not have the same value as a remodeled home.

Kitchen Remodeling

Homeowners have learned that the best room to remodel to add value to a house is the kitchen. A fully remodeled kitchen increases the quality of life for most people and when selling your home, buyers will pay more for your house compared to a similar house if your kitchen has be fully renovated and remodeled with new cabinets, upgraded counter top (such as granite), and new appliances.

Upgraded Remodeled Bathrooms

Many homeowners consider the bathroom to be the next best room to remodel after the kitchen. Renovated bathrooms definitely add to the quality of life for homeowners. Home buyers prefer newer, remodeled bathrooms.

How to Find Quality Home Remodeling Contractors

The best way to find good contractors for a home remodeling project is by referral of satisfied customers. Home buyers can ask their real estate agent and home inspector for a list of qualified, licensed contractors who have worked on remodeling projects for their clients.
