As a homeowner, the maintenance and remodeling your home is one of your highest priorities. Not only does this upkeep preserve the condition, beauty, and livability of you home, it also keeps the value growing so you can get a good return on your enormous investment. Yet as important as it is to take care of your home, who you hire to do the work is just as important.

Our basement remodeling work:
Renovating your kitchen can be inspiring, messy, creative, exhausting, fun, annoying and necessary all at the same time, but it doesn’t have to be extremely expensive.

When’s the right time to change your roof? Before your floor looks like this:
Unfortunately, the old saying “out of sight, out of mind” is all too true when it comes to roofing and the majority of people don’t think about the state of their roof until it’s too late. Being on top of your roof’s health will help you save money and avoid costly emergency repairs.
Have you ever wanted to help the environment while saving money at the same time? With a few simple renovations, you can start reducing your utilities right away. Here are our recommendations for going green at home:
Replacing incandescent lights with compact fluorescents is the simplest way to reduce costs and start going green. Studies have shown that CFLs use up to 75% less electricity and last 8 times longer than incandescent lights of comparable brightness. In just a year, this can mean big savings in utility bills.
With the cold weather out of the way, it’s finally the time of year Chicagoans have all been looking forward to: Spring! There’s lots of things to love about Spring in Chicago—baseball, bike rides, backyards…and other things that start with the letter B. But you know what’s even better than a backyard? A nice porch, deck, or patio where you can grill, entertain, or just relax in that refreshing spring breeze!

1) Screened-In Porch
With a full-glass enclosure that looks out into the greenery around you, this porch doubles as an extra room. Eating and entertaining out here is lovely even in less-than perfect weather. You can even enjoy a rainy day out here, and relax to the tapping of the raindrops on the windowpanes.
Home additions, remodels and renovations come in all shapes and sizes, from a single bathroom redesign to a complete gut and level. For the Chicago homemaker looking for something in between, home additions can be a great way build on what you’ve already got. Here are some of the most common home additions we provide, along with their respective advantages:
“Bump Out” Home Addition
Bump outs are a perfect example of taking the middle road. Rather than creating an entirely new room in your home, bump outs can give you that extra bit of space that you have always wanted. Whether you are trying to fit extra counter space in your kitchen, make room for that perfect segment couch in your living room, or make a breakfast nook, a bump out can maintain the integrity and feel of your living space while making it much more useful. Although they tend to cost more per square foot than full-on additions, the smaller size almost always makes it the cheaper option in the long run.
