The decision to remodel your kitchen or bath is usually motivated by two factors: the space doesn’t function well and, or, it needs updated surfaces.
For most people, the decision to start a remodeling project requires hiring a remodeling contractor to perform the work.
All too often, I hear stories from people about a contractor who failed to finish a job or who cut corners leaving the customer with an unacceptable result.
Dust generated by remodeling projects can create potential hazards. Dust from the renovation of a pre-1978 home can contain lead. To protect homeowners from this danger the EPA has created the Renovation, Repair and Painting Final Rule (40CFR745).
The kitchen is the heart of the home. It is also ranks at the top of the list when calculating market value for a home. The combination of enhanced function and increased value is the inspiration for most kitchen remodeling projects.
