Things You Will Want to Avoid When Building a New Home in Tampa

House ConstructionBuilding your dream home is an exciting undertaking, but it’s also one that requires a lot of preparation. Overlooking something in the planning process can lead to trouble as you begin the construction. Here are a few things that you’ll want to avoid when designing and building a new home here in Tampa.

1) Not Using Your Space Wisely

Space is the number one resource that a new home provides you, and not using that space wisely will only make life harder for you. Finding a balance between living and storage spaces will vary depending on what your needs are, but take time to think about where and what you want your spaces to be before you start building.

2) Misjudging Your HVAC Needs

AC and heat are the only things that will make your home bearable in the hot summer months and cold winter months. Choosing an HVAC unit that is too small for your home will leave you wanting more from it, while choosing a unit that is too big will cost you a fortune in energy bills.

3) Messing Up the Lighting

Compensating for a lack of window lighting with light fixtures will be expensive, and too much window lighting might affect your privacy. Take some time to think about how you can strike a balance between the two.

4) Misplacing Your Laundry Room

Since most people keep their clothing in the bedroom, it’s best to have a laundry room that’s nearby. Lugging heavy loads across the house will get tiresome very quickly.

5) Building Useless Rooms

If you’re a childless family, will you really be using a game room enough to warrant building one? Unused rooms are not only costly when working with Tampa construction companies but also end up being makeshift closets.

6) Misplacing Your Kitchen

Your kitchen should be near an entrance to your home but not so close that it receives too much foot traffic. To help cut down on this problem, consider placing it near the rear entrance.

7) Misplacing Your Bedroom

Unlike the kitchen, you want your bedroom to be far away from the entrances of your house. Also try to keep the master bedroom from sharing a wall with any key living areas.

8) Misplacing Your Garage

Limit the amount of mud and dirt that get tracked in your house by placing the garage away from your busiest rooms.

9) Poor Planning in General

Building a home should not be a rush job, and hurrying the process too much will cause you to make the mistakes listed here as well as others you might not have considered. Take your time so that you can enjoy the finished product.

10) Getting too much Outside Advice

While most people giving you construction advice mean well, they can become overbearing at times. You’re the one who will be living in the home, so make sure that you’re calling the shots during construction.

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.
