Remodeling Tips for an Older Tampa Bay Home

Remodeling Tips for an Older Tampa Bay Home

With new homes being built around every corner, you may be inspired to remodel your own. If you own an older home in the Tampa Bay area, understand the market enjoys these homes! Keep this in mind when you decide the time is right to make changes to your lovely, old-charmed home.

Before focusing on aesthetic changes, it’s important to pay close attention to the foundation of your home. Overtime there could be structural damage that needs attention first. Also, consider your plumbing and electrical wiring that was likely installed when the house was first built. We recommend taking this time to update the windows, roof and masonry as well. Beginning with these structural necessities will ensure the safety and security of your home.

To protect the charm of your older home, we recommend you start with small cosmetic changes. Things like changing the paint colors or wallpaper around the house and purchasing new furniture pieces to replace older ones that have been damaged. Now would also be a great time to go green and switch all the light bulbs to LEDS. If you’re in the market for new appliances, choose energy-efficient models. Keep in mind the idea of reselling your home and take on projects that are unique to your home.

The historical value of your home can be a huge selling point. Often, these types of homes can sell for more money than expected. Know your home’s worth! Highlighting the quirks of your home will benefit you in the long run when it comes to selling. Know what features of your home are the most valuable and focus on them preserving them when you remodel.

The character of your house can never be fully changed, so learn to embrace all the beauty your home holds. An older residence can be more challenging than expected, but that’s the fun in slightly renovating your home!

Are you ready to refresh your historical residence? Make sure you are working with a team of professionals that will lead you down the right path. Our home remodel team in Tampa, Florida is here to help you from feeling overwhelmed and enjoy your home to the fullest. To learn more or to schedule your free estimate, contact us here.

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.
