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!

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.

Pantser or Planner? How to Keep Ahead of the Times Roeser Home Remodeling St. Louis

Pantser or Planner? How to Keep Ahead of the Times

A “pantser” is someone who has no clear direction or plan. They fly by the seat of their pants. Being a “pantser” makes it difficult to be productive and accomplish tasks on time. What does this have to do with the home remodeling industry?

No home remodeling company starts out by being what is known as a “pantser”. Most home remodelers take pride in knowing their industry. The problem is that the business of home remodeling continues to evolve and change. If a company does not keep ahead of the changes and continue to learn, then they could fall into the trap of being a “pantser”. How, then do you keep ahead of the times in the home remodeling industry?
