Home Improvement

Start The Process NOW!

Many of us have had to spend more time at home. The funds we would normally spend on travel and entertainment have been put into adding value to our homes and improving our family’s quality of life.

Begin NOW

If you are hoping to have any kind of home improvement work done this summer, especially fencing and/or decking. You will want to start with your plan. Which includes design and budget, DIY or hire a pro like PACE Property Maintenance, quotes, reading and signing contracts, insurance, liens permits and warranties.  When hiring your home improvement specialist, remember that you will need to communicate and be within close proximity of them and their staff from 1 to 4 weeks on small jobs and 3 – 6 months on larger projects.  Are you comfortable with people in your space?

Beginning to plan for your summer renovations now will ensure that you have a contractor lined up. There is nothing worse than deciding you want to start those home improvements only to find that the contractor of your choice is booked for the foreseeable furniture.  At PACE, we always ask that our clients book us 3-4 weeks in advance for decking, fencing, and shed building projects and a little more lead time for some of the larger projects.

 

Get your supplies ordered now. Especially doors and windows or custom made fittings for any of your projects. French-style patio doors, for instance, will take 6 weeks to arrive. When calculating the time of the job add 20%, when considering cost add 10-15% Often overlooked is having the right tools for the job. Proper tools, sharpened blades, and, knowledge of the tools go a very long way in helping to make the job look great, feel great and last a long time.

There is nothing like the last clean-up on your home improvement project. The sense of accomplishment and the, with the right home improvement company, that sense of goodness and enjoyment for years to come. So, BEGIN NOW!
