Tampa Remodeling Tips for the Future!

Tampa Remodeling Tips for the Future!

Here are some home remodeling tips which can “future-proof” your Tampa home!

Never skimp on the insulation.

In our modern age, there are multiple forms of insulation, many of which are marketed to the public as “green.”  These include soy-based foams, recycled newspaper and even denim.  Aim for the highest thermal resistance, a bigger number will mean better insulation against the elements.  Pay particular attention to all exterior walls, a crawlspace or an attic.

Blanket insulation is often the least expensive option, the drawback being that it must be trimmed to fit around pipes and fixtures.  The fitting process leaves spaces susceptible to air leaks.

Loose-fill insulation made of fiberglass and cellulose can flow better around pipes and other obstructions in the dwelling.  Spray-in foam can do a particularly good job and it will not settle or sag over time, though the price is significantly higher.  Many are still urethane-based, but manufacturers are beginning to substitute petroleum content with soybean material.

Find formaldehyde-free options for kitchen cabinets.

Inquire whether kitchen cabinets contain added urea formaldehyde, which has been used as an adhesive in some pressed-wood products.  Formaldehyde is a human carcinogen, and it is suggested by the National Cancer Institute that buyers should ask about the formaldehyde content of kitchen cabinets.

Mainstream wood-product manufacturers are adjusting their product lines, developing cabinetry boxes with no added formaldehyde.

Build a media room that is prepared for the future.

Make sure a media room is designed to meet the future of home technology.  Wiring should be able to support a centrally located media distribution system that feeds internet access, films, games and music to the rest of your home.  Can you control lighting, security and the thermostat from a touch screen or remotely from a cell phone or tablet?

The days of making sure you had enough outlets to run the television, video device and stereo are now in the past.  Advancing home automation technology is creeping into every corner, meaning there will be a point when home appliances will efficiently notify you with a text message when the refrigerator malfunctions.

The professionals from Rossi Construction, Inc. are prepared to help you remodel your home with a better future in mind.  Call 813.436.0177 to schedule a free consultation!

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.
