I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am for spring weather! Our crew welcomes it with open arms! Valley Builders is located in Fort Valley, Virginia and at times because of the mountains it seems like winter will never end. Trees are blooming and everything is coming alive again. This was a great project where our team came in a completed a home and kitchen renovation.

It has been a while since I wrote my last blog but we have been very busy. We have been working on a project in Mt. Jackson Virginia, on Fleming Park Rd 22842. Valley Builders might be located in Fort Valley but we are a mobile construction company. We provide construction and contracting services from Winchester to Harrisonburg. We work with clients in Woodstock, Strasburg, Mt. Jackson, Basey, Front Royal, New Market, Stephens City, Broadway, Middletown, Timberville, Luray and of course Fort Valley.

The project in Mt. Jackson on Fleming Park is a home renovation and replacement window project. We traditionally tackle custom built homes but I really enjoy remodels. Taking the homeowners vision and then making it a reality gives me a great deal of satisfaction.

The first stage of the project we replaced some windows, removed walls, removed paneling and then re-hung drywall and painted. These pictures are the after product of our work.

Kitchen Renovation

The next blog will feature pictures of the kitchen remodel. If you are considering renovating your home below are “10 Home Remodeling Tips”:

  1. Get as many recommendations as you can on the contractor you plan to use.  Don’t be shy about calling references that are provided.  You absolutely must trust this person, as he/she will be in and out of your home for days.
  2. Know what home renovations you want ahead of time.
  3. Make it known up front your personal preferences.
  4. Get every little detail of the home renovation in writing from the contractor up front, before you sign on the dotted line.
  5. If you don’t like one of the workers on the job, talk to the head contractor about it
  6. Make sure you have enough paint leftover for touch-ups and document the type of paint used in each room.  You may remember the paint color 5 years down the road, but you may not remember if you used eggshell, flat, semi-gloss, etc.
  7. Make sure the contractor cleans up the mess every single day.  You don’t want all that dust circulating through your heating and cooling system, which leads me to my next tip…
  8. Change your air filters during and after your home renovation if you are having any drywall work done.  You wouldn’t believe the amount of drywall dust you will find in your filters during a renovation.  You can do real damage to the HVAC system if you do not keep the air moving well with nice, clean filters.
  9. Be prepared to make a lot of decisions, right down to cabinet handles and knobs

10. It is about expectations from the homeowner’s perspective and the contractors. Communication is key to a happy home and great business relationship.

Thank you for reading. I hope you learned something from our 10 renovation tips. We are excited to hear from you. Please leave feedback.

Thank you for your time.
