Common Myths About Home Remodeling

Common Myths About Home Remodeling

Between home design shows, browsing the internet and talking with family and friends, it’s hard to decipher what’s true or false when it comes to remodeling your home. At Rossi Construction, we have been in business since 1979 and know the ins and outs when it comes to home remodeling.

Here are some of the most common myths among the construction world:

Doing It Yourself Will Save Money
No matter how many DIY videos you have watched, articles you have read, and supplies you have purchased, we can’t stress how important it is to leave it to the professionals. Although doing it yourself may seem to be the cheaper route when remodeling your home, it may cost you more money in the long run. With mistakes and problems you’ll run into during the process, you will likely end up spending more money than originally planned. Seeking help from a professional is the best way to ensure a success home remodel.

High Quality Materials Attract More Buyers
If you are planning on reconstructing your home in order to be able to sell it in the future, you may be under the false assumption that materialistic items will attract buyers. Although expensive materials may look pretty and shiny, some value-conscious buyers may prefer a more affordable home. Consider renovating outside features of your home to add value and curb appeal and keep interior designs simple and budget friendly.

Adding a Swimming Pool Will Increase Value
Many homeowners are under the impression that having a swimming pool will automatically draw buyers to their home. Although a pool is fun, they are a lot of work and not always the right fit for everyone. They have long-term requirements and are in constant need of maintenance. Keep in mind your reason for adding a pool; is it for your family to enjoy or for future buyers? Building a pool will not guarantee buyers, but can guarantee fun in the sun.

Follow the Top Design Trends
Home design trends seem to change every year. When designing your home, sometimes staying with the latest trends isn’t always the best idea. We recommend following whatever design style you prefer,but if you are planning to sell in the future, it’s important to keep that in mind during renovations. Being too trendy may deter buyers if/when the time comes. Consider traditional designs with trendy accents.

More Expensive Contractors Are Better
When searching for a trusted construction company, price is always on your mind. Be sure to do your research and shop around. Contractors that offering low pricing should be a red flag to the quality of their work while higher prices contractors may want you to believe their quality is better than everyone else. Make sure to look into the quality work and past projects they have completed to make sure they are the perfect match for you.

Here at Rossi Construction Company, our goal is to ensure you are completely satisfied with your home remodel. We will work around a price that fits your budget while still upholding our quality craftsmanship. Contact us for a free estimate to get started: 813.436.0177.

They were very professional. Quoted us a time frame and they were exact on the time frame. The were very clean as they cleaned up every night. Any questions I had they were very helpful. Overall a great experience. We plan on using them again if we decide to redo our bathrooms. The kitchen came out very nice and we are very happy with it.

This company is great. They did an awesome job on our remodel. The quality of work surpasses everything. All project hiccups were professionally handled and solutions came out better than planned. Jason Rossi and his lead foreman on our job Brian Smith are very professional. Brian provided a wealth of knowledge in regards to our entire first floor remodel project. Brian Smith is trustworthy and the quality of his work is impeccable. Job well done JRossi Construction!!

The work quality was outstanding, the crew friendly and a delight to work with, and they cleaned up after themselves and left the place in great shape! When I remodel my other unit, there is no doubt that Rossi Construction will be doing the work there also. I had an issue with the door quality of the cabinets and Rossi and his crew met with myself, and the Cabinet Representative immediately, and the issue was resolved to My Satisfaction. You can easily tell that Customer Satisfaction is what everyone in the organization is focused on. Great Job and thanks again, Ed.

Rossi just remodeled our hall bathroom and kitchen. They are incredibly skilled craftsmen who use the best products. We had two different men lead each project and they were both wonderfully skilled (cabinetry, tile, hardware installation, electric, plumbing, painting, etc.). They are honest, hardworking, on schedule, clean up after themselves, and fix problems. We highly recommend them.

Rossi Construction just finished renovating our veterinary hospital. The entire process from start to finish was flawless. Jason was the only contractor who looked at our space and was able to get a rough quote to us within 24 hours. Everything ran on schedule and within budget, and the final product was beautiful. Our project supervisor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for construction work in the Tampa area.

The guys from Rossi do great work. We did a complete remodel of two levels of our house (we have a split level). The work included a full redesign of the master suite (took space from the bedroom to make a bigger bathroom and add a walk-in closet, also changed configuration of some windows), full redesign of main level (kitchen, living, and dining space) that included floating a sunken floor and removing walls to open the space, and cosmetic updates to the rest of the bedrooms (new doors, trim, paint, etc.). Only small issues were due to subcontractors, and Rossi made sure everything was brought up to expectation. We're super happy with the result and would not hesitate to use them on future projects.

I would highly recommend Rossi construction. Jason and his employees were very professional, very conscientious, and definitely went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the project. If I emailed questions, they were promptly answered. I believe the pricing on the project was very fair. I am recommending them to all my friends. It was a great experience working with this contractor. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Overall, the remodel went quite well. The workmanship is very good.The crew was very punctual and professional. I found some minor issues that I pointed out to them, and they resolved them to our satisfaction. They could have done a better job with drop cloths in the hallways. There was a fair amount of joint compound that got tracked around on the carpet, and some of the dirt & debris got ground into the carpet. However, I consider this to be a minor issue, and would definitely consider using them again.
