Top Upgrades to Include in a Custom Vancouver WA Home

Jan. 26th 2018

When you build a new home in Vancouver WA or even remodel an old one. There are so many options to choose from. Of course, for most people, there is a budget to consider, so in most cases, you have to choose which options you want the most, including which upgrades to include.

While it’s nice to add as many as upgrades as possible, the fact is some make a lot more sense than others. In other words, not all upgrades are really worth the cost. So that leads to the question, which ones are really worth it?

The kitchen is the first place you should look to add upgrades, as this is likely the room you will spend most of your time in. And there are plenty of places to add upgrades. The cabinets, the countertops, the appliances and the flooring are well worth the extra money. Not only will you enjoy your kitchen more, but also the upgrades will add value to your home if you ever decide to sell it.

Lighting is another great upgrade that is usually worth the money. Your house can never have too much lighting, so splurging in this area is a smart move. Flooring is an extremely important part of your home because it covers the entire house. Upgrading your flooring brings additional value to your home and you’ll notice the difference.

Having more storage space is another excellent splurge, as is adding anything that can help save energy. Again, you will enjoy these features while you’re there and your house will have added value.

Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Vancouver WA Contractor

Jan. 12th 2018

If you’re hiring a contractor in Vancouver WA you need to do your homework before you make your choice. As with anyone you hire to perform a service at your home, you want to be sure they will do the job right and that you know what you’re signing up for.

Therefore, in order to be sure you’re hiring the right Vancouver WA general contractor you need to ask a lot of questions. You might already have a list of questions in mind, but make sure you add these important questions to your list if you haven’t already.

Will you itemize your bid? This is an important question because it provides you with a specific price for each aspect of the job, instead of a bottom-line price that doesn’t really offer any details about what you’re paying for. You can also compare bids much easier when offered this way.

Is your bid an estimate or the actual price? It’s difficult for any job to stick to an exact estimated price, as unforeseen complications can happen at any time. One way to prevent major cost changes is to ask for a fixed bid instead of an estimated bid.

How long have you been working here? Another good question to ask is how long a contractor has been working in your area. The longer he or she has been at it in a certain location the more likely he or she is to have a good list of suppliers and subcontractors to work with. That means your job is likely to go smoother and quicker.

These are three of the most important questions you can ask a potential general contractor but there are many others. If you’re ready to remodel your Vancouver WA home with the help of an experienced and reliable Vancouver WA remodeling contractor call Direct Finish Construction at 360-690-5616 or click here.
