5 Myths About Remodeling

Adding new windows, doors, roofing, siding, insulation, gutters and/or flooring to your home can increase your home's value. Still, you've probably heard your fair share of horror stories from friends and family members regarding launching a new residential project. Below we clear up six myths about remodeling:

Myth #1: Doing it yourself will save you money

The truth: If you're considering taking on a home improvement project by yourself, remember the old saying: "You get what you pay for." Quality work from Superior Windowland is worth the higher starting cost. We’ll do the job right the first time, which will save you more money at the end of the day.

Myth #2: Buying your own materials will help cut down on costs

The truth: We have great relationships with our manufacturers. This allows us to get discounts that you wouldn't be able to get yourself.

Myth #3:
Inside projects are more important than outside improvements

The truth: Curb appeal is more important than you might think. If a potential home buyer doesn't like the outside look of your home, he or she might not even make it inside to see your indoor renovations. When remodeling, start on the outside and then work your way in.

Myth #4: You shouldn't install hardwood floors in your kitchen

The truth: It's not clear where this myth came from, but hardwood floors look and work great in kitchens.

Myth #5: All remodeling contractors are the same

The truth: Not all remodeling businesses are created equal. Superior Windowland has been BBB accredited since 2011, is FEMA approved, and is fully licensed and insured.

  1. Oh, many people really do still believe in DIY as the most certain way of money saving. For instance, getting Aluplast doors and a team to install them is not that expensive as they might think...
