If you’re living in an older home, you may want to look at your plumbing or electrical systems. While it may be tempting to redo your bathroom or rec room, you’re doing yourself a disservice by not first updating and renovating the very things that make those rooms functional.
If outdoor renovations are on your list, get started early. By doing things like staining your deck, or placing interlocking bricks as a walkway or firepit base, means that you can enjoy these things all throughout the summer.

Especially given our current situation, materials are sparse and expensive. By booking early, you can guarantee your time, and also guarantee that your material cost won’t go up!
