Spring is in the air and the chill of winter subsides just in time for National Home Remodeling Month (May) and that means it`s a good time to think about projects that will increase the value, livability and efficiency of your home.
Adam Bakir, General Manager of Incredible Renovations said that he couldn`t be happier about National Home Remodeling Month and says that more and more homeowners are choosing to remodel their kitchens and bathrooms during this time of year.
Houstonis at the top of the list again for 100 top remodeling markets in the country according to Hanley Wood Business Media.
"Thanks to the foresight of the city`s leaders from almost three decades ago. When the oil boom went bust in the early 1980s, like Scarlet O`Hara declaring she would never go hungry again, the city vowed to never again be dependent on just one industry. Thus started the influx of every sector from high-tech to aerospace."
"Remodeling trends are up, thanks to the mild winter and the end of the energy tax credit, the first quarter 2012 saw a surge of remodeling projects. The rush caused a bit of a drag in thesecond quarter, but there is no need to worry, says Eric S. Belsky, managing director of Joint Center of Housing Studies. According to Belsky, the remodeling industry will move out of the "ebb and flow period and into a new growth phase" and will experience "an acceleration in market activity that will strengthen as we move into the new year."
"This is great news," said Bakir. "We`ve seen the surge in 2013 and are ready to handle any projects that come our way to the best of our ability."
"The market is heating up and with it the prices are rising. Many suppliers are seizing the opportunity to raise their prices to match the demand after a 7 year low cycle. My advice to my family and friends is to get your building projects started before the impact of more price escalations takes a toll on budgets."
