The Gift of Giving

This time of year, gift giving has been on the minds of people. Gifts are a beautiful way of showing that we love and care about others. A lot of time and thought goes into that special gift we want to give to those we love. Whether a lot of money is spent or just a little, most value the thought put into a special gift.

Gift giving, or Philanthropy, can take on many forms. While giving gifts normally involve knowing the person on a more intimate level, Philanthropy is usually giving with a common purpose in mind. In fact, Philanthropy is defined as a love of humanity which gives for a purpose or a cause.

Our family here at Roeser Home Remodeling want you to know that we are committed to giving back to our community. Our philosophy of life revolves around giving and helping others. In appreciation for all that our customers in the St. Louis and Kirkwood areas have done for us, we also encourage our family and employees to give back to the community. Leading by example, we coach others and share our expertise, not just in the field of home remodeling, but also in other areas to benefit the local community.

Roeser Home Remodeling, as a company or as employees, participated in several projects over the past year. Many of the projects touched our hearts.

For instance, we were proud sponsors and contributors in the annual event for Pancreatic Cancer Research in special memory of Sharon Rau and Terry Rau Sr. They were clients, but also lovely people. Sadly, they each passed away from the same awful disease only two years apart from each other. They are greatly missed.

Continuing our passion for giving, Roeser sponsored a bike team for the second year in a row. “Pedal for a Cause” helps benefit local research for finding a way to end cancer.

We have also been involved with and helped sponsor the “Evening of 100 Fingers”, which is an organization that supports Pianos for People. This organization is designed to get pianos into the homes of those who could not otherwise afford them, offering free piano lessons with the piano helping many children and young adults build skills, self-respect, and discipline.

Our very own Production Coordinator, Mark Talley participated in the 2017 “Operation Clean Stream” that takes place once a year designed to help protect our environment and wildlife from hazardous pollution. The volunteers in this project are selfless, wading in mud and gunk, as well as braving dirty water and possible encounters with poisonous snakes while helping clean up the polluted areas around the Meramec River basin. This past year, the volunteers covered about 500 miles of river area, cleaning up debris.

In addition to these projects, Roeser Home Remodeling continues to be involved in the community by supporting local schools, including Trivia night at North Middle School. As well as locally supporting the community by sponsoring the band “The Dog’s Breakfast” at Station Plaza’s Summer Concert series. This is a great event in Kirkwood to promote families and friends getting together and building relationships.

Of course, Roeser Home Remodeling also supports the Home Builders Charitable Foundation and we participate regularly in many St. Louis events, including hosting a Happy Hour to encourage other local builders and remodelers to raise the bar when it comes to home remodeling ethics and quality.

What lies ahead for the new year? Home remodeling trends change from year to year. Gift giving, or Philanthropy never goes out of style, the idea of acts of kindness and helping others will continue to be a part of the Roeser Home Remodeling way of life. We are dedicated to giving back to our community and staying on top of the trends of home remodeling while giving you the best when it comes to your home remodeling projects.

Being the proud recipients of the BBB Torch Award in 2017, Roeser Home Remodeling will continue to be a name you can trust to put the St. Louis and Kirkwood communities and your personal home remodeling interests to the forefront as we move ahead into 2018.

Hunkering Down for Winter?

Four Home Remodel Projects that are Perfect for Colder Months!

When colder weather arrives to town, there are several things that readily come to mind. For many, it’s a time for families to gather. Winter coats, mittens, scarves, hot cocoa, and the holidays are a few topics that might be on your mind. Cold, snow and ice tend to make us want to stay home and cozy up by the fireplace, hunkering down for winter. The thought of home improvement projects may make you shiver.

Of course, when it comes to remodeling your home in colder temperatures, you may not want to tear out those outside walls for a home addition or install new windows. You don’t want to sit around your home wearing coats and mittens, letting Jack Frost nip at your nose! So, what home remodeling projects are better suited for the winter months?  Listed below are four home remodeling projects that are perfect for accomplishing in the colder winter months.

Hardwood Flooring

Winter months with colder temperatures are a good time to consider going ahead and installing those beautiful wood floors you have been dreaming of. Especially in the St. Louis metro area, winter brings lower humidity thereby making it an ideal time to enhance your home with hardwood floors. Lower humidity levels will help prevent any gapping of the wood between newly laid boards, and any adhesive used will have a quicker drying time. Hardwood floors add value to your home while giving it a fresh, clean, and cozy feel for the colder temperatures.

Insulation

Adding insulation to your home may seem like a no brainer. Yet, depending on the age of your home and the building codes at the time, many homeowners are not adequately covered when it comes to insulation. You can have the experts at Roeser Home Remodeling do a complete evaluation of what is needed to improve your home’s insulation and bring it up to industry standards. No one wants to throw money away, and if your home is not insulated to its full capacity, then that is exactly what you are doing. Literally, money is going right through the roof. This home remodeling project will improve the value of your home and save you money in heating and cooling.

Bathroom Renovation

Colder winter months are a great time for a bathroom remodel project. You want your bathroom, whether it is your main bath, master bath or spare bathroom to share the same overall design of your home. Roeser Home Remodeling can help you achieve the value and aesthetic you are looking for. Winter months are the perfect opportunity to take care of your bathroom remodel. This remodel can be achieved with minimal upset to your family and dwelling.

Basement Remodel

Basement remodeling is one home remodeling project that is ideal for colder winter months. The basement is usually somewhat cut off from the main living space of your home. Remodeling of this area can be accomplished with minimal impact to your family and your everyday busy schedules. It is the one area of your home that will enhance and add to the quality of your living space. Do you need more bedrooms? Additional bathrooms? A family recreational area? The list could go on and on. Your basement remodel could hold the key to the extra areas you need for your family and the colder months are the perfect time to make it happen.

As you can see, the winter months are no time for hibernation or bunkering down when it comes to home remodeling. Roeser Home Remodeling will be happy to meet with you and discuss your home remodeling desires and how we can help turn your dreams into reality, even in the colder months!

Winter is the Perfect Time for these Four Home Remodeling Projects

Just because winter is here doesn’t mean you need to halt your home improvement projects. These projects are perfect for this time of year.

There is no doubt that summer time is the most popular for most remodeling projects. Thanks to this, contractors tend to have a lot of downtime during the winter. This means they have greater availability and lower rates, which saves any homeowner valuable time and money.

We shouldn’t embark on any old project in the winter though. Some improvements are better suited for the cool months than others are. Here are four ways you can tackle common home issues this summer.

Home Remodeling is Not a Game of Chance Roeser Home Remodeling

Home Remodeling is Not a Game of Chance

If Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis told you that your home remodeling project is not a game of chance, would you believe us? Of course, you would. Reputable home remodeling companies do not leave your project to chance. There are certain steps that a home remodeling company takes to ensure the success of your home remodeling or home addition projects.

The beginning of the home remodeling project starts with budget. The homeowner should have a realistic budget in mind, not some phantom, obscure idea that just because you want it, you can leave the budget to chance and somehow, even magically, your project will be exactly like your home remodel vision. Life is not like that, and neither is your home remodel project. It takes various aspects of planning, designing, and a realistic approach to what you want versus what your budget is.

Red tape remodeling - Roeser Home Remodeling

Red Tape Regulations – Hiring a Professional Home Remodeler Makes Good Sense

What do you think is the worst thing? Getting lost in red tape or falling through the cracks? Either way, the outcome is the same. Getting lost in red tape implies a never-ending spool of confusion, from which you cannot escape.

When it comes to home remodeling in the St. Louis area, you do not want either outcome. Your home remodeling project should not be confusing or make you feel as if you didn’t accomplish what you wanted for your project. Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis can help you sort through these red tape issues while not compromising what you want for your home remodeling project.

St. Louis Kitchen remodel with washer/dryer - Roeser Home Remodeling

Not Your Grandma’s Kitchen

Most of us have fond memories of our grandma’s kitchen. The smells, the sounds, the interesting never seen before gadgets. Sometimes, even now, I bet a certain smell can take you back to that kitchen again. I still remember sitting at my grandma’s small white porcelain topped table, watching her do her grandma magic, dressed in a frilly white apron. The memories created have been building blocks leading up to what is now a modern super kitchen.

Kitchens today mean more than just making a meal. It’s where families spend most their time. The modern kitchen is the center of family life. Whether you are remodeling your kitchen, or newly building one, today’s consumer has a certain view of what they want it to be. While not wanting your grandma’s kitchen, you want the feel to remain the same. Having warmth and the feeling of home is just as important now as it was then.
