You've likely had work done to your house and know of a great contractor you trust whether a family friend or a locally established businessman. Good contractors are great to know and you should certainly keep in touch with the one you have seen do great work. However, often the case is a contractor specializes in one specific type of project and other contractors may be better suited for different jobs. Ideally, you'll eventually find a great contractor who does amazing work with a multitude of renovations and upgrades to your home.
Changing Window Styles Rather than Basic Replacements
Windows are typically the least of your concerns, until you realize your windows are either outdated or not functioning properly and you need new ones. Often replacing the old window with a modernized version which is essentially the same is all you could need or want. But if you need windows replaced, it's a good time to speak with your contractor about the possibility of changing the overall style to something which will add value to the house and convenience to your life. Something as simple as enlarging the opening for a bigger window will let in more natural light, or a bay window may add a touch of elegance and focal point to the room while allowing a bit of outside into the comfort of your interior home.
Gutters and Shingles to Match New Siding
Siding has to occasionally be replaced or upgraded, but there's more to the home's exterior than siding. Plenty of contractors are perfectly capable of doing a great job replacing siding, but a great contractor can add the finishing touches of shutters as an accent and contrasting color or finishing the job with new gutters to make the house look new with curb appeal and a finished exterior which is inviting to your guests and welcoming to you and your family every day when you come home.
Speaking of finishing touches, your house was likely built to a generic standard which appeals to everybody. Nothing is wrong with that and it's the way contractors build houses in order to assure a quick sale and return on their investment. New doors, and specialized doors to suit your tastes can make the house a home which is yours rather than the ordinary house which matches every other house in the neighborhood. The door also serves to invite people into the home, whether you're entertaining friends, inviting extended family, or arriving home after a hard of work, the front door reminds everybody of how nice of a home you've built out of the house you chose to use as a base from which you conduct your life.
Can your contractor do more? The short answer is, yes, absolutely he can. If you know exactly what you need done a good contractor will do the work for you, but a great contractor can advise you as to the available options with modern building technology and conduct multiple aspects of the job to assure you wind up with exactly what you want and need.
