As the project begins, everyone has an idea. Any remodeling project is bound to invite a plethora of recommendations, and sadly, there is no viable way to incorporate all of those suggestions into the final project. Decisions must be made, therefore, and there are plenty of them to make, from the rough materials to the fancy fixtures.
Consider the rough plumbing department of your local home improvement mega-store, for example. How many different options are there for any given aspect of the plumbing behind the wall and under the floor? From the piping for the plumbing to the wiring for the electrical, you have to make a whole heap of decisions, some more important…some more permanent than others. Whether or not you happen to be thoroughly versed in the language of plumbing, electrical, flooring, etc., there are new products on the market with such head-spinning frequency that it can be next to impossible to keep up with all of them unless you’re in the field, working with the tools on a daily basis. Even then, it can be hard to keep up on the moving cutting edge. That being the case, it can be pretty discouraging (and all too possible) to find out about “the perfect…,” two weeks after you installed what you thought was the best of the best.
With the rough materials selected and purchased, you’re still not in the clear. When you are ready to play with the finishing touches, you’re into a whole ‘nother ball game, with hundreds (at least) of colors, styles, sizes, textures, quantities, etc. to consider. For every decision made, ten more crop up, each more difficult to make than the last, it seems. One nice thing is that choosing a style may narrow the playing field a little bit, and budget may narrow that field even more.
For the indecisive among us, a home remodeling project with such a flurry of required decisions may not be the most enjoyable summer project. Thankfully, there are companies like D.R. Hartman Construction, Inc. (click here for website) that help make a potentially-painful situation a whole lot easier. With thirty years in the field, this company (which offers no-obligation quotes for their work) can recommend showrooms where you can get an idea of at least some of the options. Often, the people that work in these showrooms have been trained to help with decorating (usually for people who “just [aren’t] sure”), and since that’s the most obvious result of choices you’ve made, it’s nice to be able to get some help.
It may not be worth all the hassle, to do everything yourself. If you decide you’d rather pay someone else to deal with the tedium or help you do the work, and you are planning a home addition in Bethesda, Maryland or Washington, D.C., D.R. Hartman Construction may be just the contractor you need. Whether you’re planning a bathroom renovation in Potomac or a new kitchen in Gaithersburg, this family-owned and –operated company promises excellent customer service. On the home page of their website, they pledge their commitment “to providing quality service and complete satisfaction to each of [their] customers.” What more could you ask?
