Don’t Put Off Home Repairs

Don't Ignore Home Repairs (1)This is a guest blog done by Kathi Fleck of LoneStar Property Solutions. You can read an interview she had previously done with Design Build Pros here.

“It is most important to take care of repair items as they occur, whether inside your home or on the exterior. I regularly see homes needing repair in addition to the desired updates the homeowner requests.” – Kathi Fleck

There is nothing that holds up a project like unexpected repairs. Even if the repairs were known about, it’s completely possible for homeowners to put off maintenance tasks until a major project is being done. When going into a remodeling project, it’s usually fairly obvious if maintenance has been deferred or not.

Finishing a Remodeling Design

Finishing a Design-Design Build ProsThis is a guest blog done by Kathi Fleck of LoneStar Property Solutions. You can read an interview she had previously done with Design Build Pros here.

“The meaning of ‘pulling it all together’ is different for everyone.” – Kathi Fleck, Renovate, Remodel…Relax!

Once all of the major elements of a design project are in place, it’s time to make the finishing touches. The details are inevitably what “sell” a design. Even if the project is yours to enjoy, the accessories, color schemes and other items of visual interest help make a space feel complete. What inevitably “pulls everything together” is different for every project, the personal tastes of the homeowner, and the style and context of the space.
