When the kids grow up, they move out of the house, get married, and soon have kids of their own. You’re left with an empty house, more room, more space. Empty bedrooms turn into storage areas. And if you keep living in the same house, it starts to wear down. Floorboards sag and creak as you walk on them. The walls get scrapes and scratches. The ceiling sags downward.
Eventually, you might be embarrassed to have the kids come visit Mom and Dad at home because of the state of the house. It’s just not going to be like they remembered it while growing up. They’ll stay in their old bedrooms, only to find holes in the walls and fading paint.
Wouldn’t it be nice to update the house for when your kids and grandkids visit? Wouldn’t you like to be able to show off old rooms looking new again? Well, what could you do? You could remodel the rooms yourself. But that takes a lot of work, and a lot of time. You have to move furniture, and rip out old boards and sheetrock, and put new materials in. Before you even start, you have to plan what you need to remove and what you need to put in its place and what you need to buy.
But you don’t have to do the work yourself. You could hire a general contractor to do the remodeling work for you. One Bethesda general contracting company with an excellent reputation is D. R. Hartman Construction, a family-run business.
If you contact them, they can give a free quote for how much it will cost for what you want done with your house. They’re experienced in remodeling rooms from bathrooms to kitchens to whatever else you might want renovated.
Once they’ve looked at the house, talked with you to determine what needs to be done, and given a reasonable estimate for cost, the work is ready to begin. It’s time to rip out the ugly old walls and floors and put in new ones. Of course, you might be getting rid of some old memories. Those pencil marks from little Joey’s art on the wall. That hole where he rammed his toy truck as he was testing its top speed. But those are memories you’re quite willing to do away with to make his bedroom look nice and new.
Hartman Construction will work quickly and efficiently. You won’t regret hiring this general contractor to redo your home. Enduring the construction-in-progress can be a constant annoyance when you still have to live in your house. Breezes blow in through openings in the walls and ceilings. Sawdust, sheetrock dust, and wood splinters lie everywhere. Power tools drone on and hammers pound as you go about your daily routine. But it’s quite worth it in the end, when you can pull the plastic tarp off the wall and survey the brand-new room. You’ll be more than ready to call the kids and have them come for a visit now, to stay in an old room made new.
