Bathroom Remodels

Bathroom remodeling is a very popular home improvement that many people do. Many buy an older home and want to update it to fit their life style and update features. New valves, tiles, designs, sinks, faucets, mirrors and many other decisions come with a new bathroom. The choice of a tub or a shower and sometimes both become an option if you have space. Color schemes are another decision that you have to make because there are thousands of color options. Many bathrooms we have done the addition of grab bars are a necessity and part of plans for retirement preparedness. According to Remodeling Magazine cost vs. value report a homeowner can expect to recoup 70% of the bathroom remodel cost in value to their home if they plan to sell, which also helps sell a home. ( If you need help with ideas about making changes to your bathroom then you can usually get the best help from a remodeling specialist like our company who remodels several bathrooms a year. This can help you make decision according to what you can actually do. This leaves us with the question, why invest in this major project? In the current buyer's market according to the National Association of Realtors, houses with improvements tend to sell quicker than their fancier neighbors. The choices for each bathroom is always different and all vary according to the homeowner.

Choosing the Wrong Contractor

Many companies are out there and homeowners don't know how to make the right choice. How can you know who is a good company to use with so many in the phone book? It's really hard to choose. Many people look for your typical old guy that talks a big game, but with times changes and advance technology what do these men have to offer currently? There are many things that can help you decide who is right for you. Price is important, but shouldn't be the deciding factor. Many customers I have dealt with found out this the hard way. Why the cheap guys they choose was really cheaper. If there price seems too good to be true then this it probably is. If the company doesn't have a business card to offer you then how can they be a business?

With our current technology a website is becoming the norm and can provide you with a lot of helpful information about a company that you are looking at using and if someone does not have one then it can be a sign. Uniforms are  a key attribute you can also look for as a red flag. Many companies don't have them but a company that wants to portray a professional look will at least have their team wearing a company shirt. Credit card acceptance is also thing that can prove a serious business and proof they have plans to be around long term. Then insurance is a must if the company you are dealing with has liability insurances this is a great attribute and for your protection as well as their own.

There are so many companies out there and you want to choose one that stands out and is going to be around if something goes wrong. This would be why you look for a contractor who is current with the times and you will get a better chance of someone who will be here in the future. Always go with your instinct because if you have a good or bad feeling about them it’s usually right. Be mindful who you let work on your home because it’s you greatest asset and the passion that has the greatest finical value in your life. Good luck and do your research.

Fiveash Renovations: Remodeling Company A little Information about us

 I am Derrick Fiveash a fire fighter and the owner/operator of Fiveash Renovations a local Remodel company here in Brunswick. I 've been in the business for ten years and grew up involved in it. I have a great crew that  and we aim to do excellent work for our future clients. We have remodeled many bathrooms, painted interior and exterior and did all types of work in many houses. We are unlike many companies out their because  when I meet with you about your project I share any and all the best information I can to help you make an educated decision about your home. Your home is the biggest asset you own and I know is very important to you. Many contractors just give an estimate and leave without any information to share to the customer. When I meet with my customers, I share any information that might help them make an educated decision. We try to give every customer a dvd that they can watch some of our previous work and a brochure to introduce our key team members along with a few photos of some of our previous work. Our website is maintained by myself and is full of useful information and is updated twice a week or more. Our prices are pretty reasonable and one of our priorities is quality. When you are having remodeling done in your home it is an inconvenience to your normal routine and we try to keep that in mind, but the worst thing is to get through this inconvenience and minor detail's not done right and then have a crew come back over to your home and inconvenience you again. We hold our remodeling jobs and your home to the highest standards and hope to build a brand that will become number one in Brunswick. We have various You-Tube video's of some of our projects from start to finish, photo's and references to offer our future customers.

Thanks Derrick Fiveash - Fiveash Renovations
