Bathroom remodeling involves as little or as much of the remodeling process as you want it to. We can perform a task as simple as installing new bathroom appliances. We can also do more complicated bathroom remodels and give you a completely new bathroom.

Before we start your bathroom remodeling project, you need to make all the necessary plans about what kinds of things you want.

Before we start your bathroom remodeling project, you need to make all the necessary plans about what kinds of things you want.

Some ideas for planning include:

  • Planning out a budget (How much can you spend on this project? What are your parameters?)

  • Planning out a budget (How much can you spend on this project? What are your parameters?)

  • Choosing what type of bathtub, shower, and toilet you would like in your bathroom (Do you want a bathtub with jets and a separate shower? Do you want multiple shower heads?)

  • Picking out your sink and vanity (Sometimes master bathrooms have two sinks)

  • Choosing a mirror and faucet fixtures to go with your decor

  • Decide on whether or not you want any sort of storage or cabinetry installed in your bathroom to house towels, soaps, or anything else

  • The tiles to be used in the bathroom remodeling process (some people choose to tile entire areas of their bathroom, while others only remodel inside of the shower)

  • Paint colors that will accent all of the other things you’ve picked out (You can also look at some crown molding to give your bathroom a fancier feel)

When you call us, we can discuss your bathroom remodeling plan. We’ll make sure we find a way to work everything into the bathroom that you want. Then, we’ll give you a complete written estimate.

You might be thinking about taking on a bathroom remodeling project by yourself. This is not impossible, but calling us ensures that your bathroom will be remodeled safely, expertly, and in a timely fashion. If you try to remodel the bathroom yourself, you can run into some problems.

Some of these problems include:

  • Water damage to the floors and walls underneath your bathtub or tile (We can replace any flooring or drywall that has been damaged by water)

  • Changing your plumbing fixtures to match new vanities and bathtubs (We can change the position of the fixtures, depending on the new sinks or tubs we install)

  • A bathtub is extremely heavy, and if you’re not very careful you can crack or damage the bathtub, and then it might leak (We take extra caution to make sure no damage is done to any of the pieces and fixtures we install in your bathroom)

  • If you plan on any new or different plumbing, you will have to learn how to make adding an extra shower head or extra sink possible (We can install the proper plumbing to make sure your bathroom is in working order)

We have the proper skills and tools to deal with any problem that may come up during bathroom remodeling. Once we’ve dealt with the existing problems to your bathroom, and replaced anything that needs replaced, we can start construction.

While we are working on bathroom remodeling, you can start planning how you’re going to decorate your bathroom. Visit your local bed and bath store for ideas on how to create the perfect space. Generally bathrooms are small areas, and there are many tips and tricks when it comes to decorating the bathroom to make it look bigger. Mirrors are a common design trick to make your bathroom appear to have more space.

Bathroom remodeling can make anyone’s head spin. Let us do the hard work. All you need to do is decide what kind of bathroom you want. We’ll take care of the entire project, and fix any problems that come up. Together we will make it happen.

Home additions are a great way to expand your living space. There are many different ways you can do this. Whether you’re deciding to build a place for guests to stay, or a garage to park your car in the winter, we can help you with all the planning and construction.

There are many different benefits to adding an addition to your home. Some of these benefits include:

  • Increasing the value of your home – Local real estate agents can make an estimate of the value of your home before and after home additions. If you plan on someday relocating, this will allow you to be able to ask a higher price.

  • You don’t have to buy a new house – Home additions allow you the benefit of getting a new “place,” but without going through the stress of selling your current home, buying a new home, and paying a higher mortgage.

  • Reducing the risk of damage – If you take on a project of this proportion yourself, there’s a good chance you may make a mistake. We have the expertise to not only construct home additions, but also to help you through the zoning issues and any other issues you might have.

  • Adhering to a budget – When we come out to give you an estimate, we can also come up with a plan that meets your budget requirements.

For any major home improvement project, you should really consider hiring a contractor. We are skilled at what we do.

If you think a home addition is out of reach, we can help you attain your goal. If you don’t have the property space, because you live in an urban area or in a close neighborhood, we can do vertical additions instead of a horizontal addition. We can add another floor to your house. If you don’t know where you might add a horizontal addition to your house, we can come out and help you plan the perfect addition. It’s our job to make sure that you’re happy with the way we do home additions.

Drawing up your own plan can be a helpful way to make sure that we know what you want. Once we know what you want, we can help you to get it. Here are some tips for drawing up plans for home additions:

  • Consider the amount of space you want your addition to be – If you’re just building one room, you may already know the dimensions of the room you want. Measure the furniture you already have in your house. This will help you decide how big you want your new addition to be, based on the furniture you want to put inside your new addition.

  • Consider where you want your addition – Of course you have to take into account that you need to add you addition on a part of your property where it won’t interfere with property lines, power lines, trees, etc. You also need to consider what room or hallway you want your addition to be built off of. Home additions are a permanent part to your home; you don’t want a kitchen coming off of your master bathroom.

  • Utilize tools to draw up your plan – If you want to draw up a plan to scale, you might think about using graph paper and measuring devices. There are also computer programs, some of them free, in which you can make up a plan as well as plan the interior decorating of your home addition.

Of course, we can help you with any of these steps. Adding a room to your home can be as personalized by you as you want it to be.

Building a new addition onto your home may seem like a big task. We can answer any questions you have and make sure that you’re satisfied with your new addition.

We provide home additions in Fairfax, Arlington, Alexandria, Burke, Reston, Centreville, Herndon, Washington DC, Sterling, and Manassas.

deck builder follows multiple steps and does a lot of hard work to build you a deck. The end product is one that not only improves the value of your home, but is also very practical. There are many different types of decks we can build, from patio decks to pool decks. Decks are generally made out of three different types of material.

The materials are:

1. Wood – Typically most decks are made out of wood. This is the most traditional material used to make decks, and is considered by many a deck builder to be the most reliable. There are many different types of wood that can be used to make decks, including:

  • Redwood– Redwood is a beautiful color and is estimated to last 10-20 years; it is a very popular type of wood for decks.

  • Cedar– Red Cedar is estimated to last 15-25 years, and is less susceptible to warping than other types of wood.

  • Pine– Pine typically has a more yellow or green tint than other wood. It is denser than other woods, and therefore able to withstand more surface damage.

  • Ipe– Also known as Brazilian Walnut or Ironwood, Ipe is becoming a widely requested material for a deck builder. It has a rich brown color with a hint of silver, and is extremely durable.

2. Composite materials :
Composite decking is made up out of a combination of wood and plastic. The amount in each composition is dependent on which brand of deck you’re using. Composite decking is a newer material to the deck builder. It can be more cost effective to use than traditional wood decking.

3. Vinyl :
Vinyl decking is said to be a good kind of decking material, because it has a minimal need for maintenance. It is not affected by sunlight, and it does not need to be stained or painted like other deck building materials. Even if you do not use vinyl for the main part of your deck, a deck builder can attach it to the wood and use it for handrails and fencing around your deck. The downside of vinyl is that while it is made to look similar to wood, it just doesn’t have the same look when examined closely.

Any deck builder understands that there are pros and cons associated with any of these types of deck building materials. We can go over all of your concerns with you, and help you to choose the right material for building your dream deck.

If you are thinking about building a deck on your own, you should really reconsider. If you are planning to anchor the deck to your home, you may need to remove some siding in order to attach it correctly. You will also need many different kinds of tools to build a sturdy deck. You also need to make sure that your deck is safe; if you make one mistake during deck building, the results can be disastrous. A deck builder must have proper knowledge of how to assemble all the materials. Another concern is to make sure that the deck is level. If you don’t have this kind of expertise, call us. We’ll come out and discuss your ideas and concerns, and give you an estimate.

Deck building is a great way to improve your home, your property, and your lifestyle. You can entertain guests by holding outside cocktail parties or barbecues on your new deck. No matter the size of the deck you want built, or the material it’s made out of, we can come out and help you to plan everything, as well as give you an estimate. Let a deck builder do the hard work for you, and soon you can enjoy your new space.

House painting is an important feature of any home and when completed to a high standard, it provides an effective combination of hard wearing protection and visual appeal.
For those that may have already attempted it, exterior house painting is considered to be a fairly major task. Not only is the area to be worked on considerably larger than an average wall inside a home, but ineffective preparation, poor quality products and inferior working practices will ultimately lead to the deterioration of your property.

In some cases, the exposure of brickwork or other outside surfaces to inclement weather can cause expensive structural damage when the services of a professional team of exterior decorators could have provided a lasting finish to protect your building for many years at a competitive price.

Our experienced team understands that the outside appearance of your home can be the first impression that many people have of you. A clean, tidy and well-presented exterior will say much more about you than a tired and shabby-looking property that looks to be in need of some tender loving care!

We only use the latest in trade procedures and universally recognized quality finishes when working on your home to make your house painting project an overwhelming success. Our work process always means that most important aspects of exterior decorating are taken into consideration:

  • Topcoats, staining and our other ranges of finishing products are only as good as the work that has been carried out beneath them. Our preparation techniques are unsurpassed and careful attention is given to even the most minor of imperfections and blemishes. We will scrape, spackle and sand all surfaces that require it to leave a perfect canvas for our exterior house painting products.

  • Depending on the condition of your property, we will remove all traces of dirt, rust, mildew and flaking paint. If necessary, window frames can also be treated using specialist paint removers. All prepared areas are primed for added protection.

  • Before house painting, we will pressure wash the entire exterior of your house, using specialist equipment to achieve as clean a working area as possible. This adds a little more time to the project overall, but is very much worth it. The primer and paint will always adhere much better to a cleaner surface.

  • Caulking and sealing tasks are all completed prior to refinishing so that all vulnerable areas are protected and free of any leaks.

  • For your complete peace of mind, suitable protection will be provided for pavements, walkways, plant life and any other surface that could become contaminated by spillages or seeping.

  • All exterior fittings, wherever possible, will be removed to avoid unsightly edges particularly around ornamental features and guttering. These will be replaced once your house painting project is complete.

  • All of our products are applied using trade recommended methods.

  • All of our weather-resistant finishes are applied using a two coat system for added durability and long-term protection.

Your welfare is important to us and all of our work is carried out with the safety of our customers, employees and your property in mind. We insist on our teams using appropriate protective and safety equipment at all times while we are working on your home.
With studious planning, effective work practices and the very best in materials, our team will provide your home with a long-lasting makeover that will withstand even the most arduous of weather conditions.
