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.
