Jon Weaver, Homeowner: “We decided to redo our kitchen because our house has now gotten to the point where some of the items in it are outdated, but we haven’t out grown it yet so we decided to make it a little bit nicer while we are still here.”
There are multiple projects underway at the home of Jon Weaver.
Jon Weaver, Homeowner: “So far we have replaced all the appliances to make them stainless steel we have redone our cabinets and added some crown molding and we have redone the floors.”
Our homes are one of the biggest investments we’ll make – so we want to take care of it.
Angie’s List founder Angie Hicks doesn’t want you to be surprised by emergency home repairs this year.
That’s why she’s calling on homeowners to take the Angie’s List Pledge.
Angie Hicks, Angie’s List: “My goal is not to add more work to everyone’s schedule. The key here is to do an assessment. Walk around your house like you are getting ready to buy the house and make a list of the things that need to be fixed. You should be able to do this in an hour or two, but it will save you a lot of time, headache and money down the road.”
Don’t neglect the little things because they can lead to costly repairs.
Jeff Flora, Comprehensive Services: “It might be a minor thing. It might be a major thing but it’s always a good idea to call somebody that has a little bit of experience because experience matters and they can take a look at it ascertain whether it’s going to be a big problem or a small problem.”
Consider how much available you have to spend and start with projects that you can afford.
Make sure the money you spend will add value to your home.
Timing is key in projects.
Factor in what season you’ll be doing the work or what time of year may be the best time to get on a contractor’s schedule if you’re hiring out the project.
