Green Remodeling: Our Customer Reviews Say it All

If you’re a homeowner and you’ve ever considered the prospect of working with a contractor to renovate your house, it’s not too inconceivable that you’ve heard a horror story or two regarding someone else’s project that either went too long, way past budget, or every other direction except the way it was supposed to go. While some unforeseen issues may pop up that can’t always be avoided, there is still one great and valuable resource that you can always use to try and avoid as much headache as possible…

Customer reviews.

Simply put, customer reviews are not only one of the easiest ways to look up a particular company, but one of the most effective, because you’re getting direct feedback from the customer, in their own words. Customer reviews give you a great starting point when it comes to trying to decide who to hire for your home renovation project. Not only do they offer a snapshot on how credible and reputable a contractor is, but they can also tell you something about the quality of their craftsmanship, punctuality, and overall performance.

At Green Remodeling, not only do we pride ourselves on being Atlanta’s one-stop, locally-owned and operated remodeling and renovation expert for over a decade running, but we have a long list of satisfied client reviews to show for it. Even though we specialize in basementskitchens, and bathroomsGreen Remodeling can help you with nearly any aspect of redoing your residential or commercial location.

Successful Practices for Sustainable/“Green” Remodeling

Sustainable, or “green”, remodeling strives to minimize a home’s impact on the environment and conserve natural resources through intentional material and design choices. In addition to reducing your environmental impact, sustainable remodeling choices can make your home more efficient, improve the quality of its indoor air, and lower your energy bills.

Prioritizing Organic, Domestic, and Sustainable Materials

Careful consideration should be applied to material choices in sustainable remodeling, with a focus on organic (natural, non-toxic), domestic (local, hyperlocal) and sustainable (repurposed, easily recycled) materials, like wood, cork, steel, and bamboo. Internationally sourced building materials are often more affordable, but their air, sea, and ground transport creates harmful carbon emissions which contribute to global warming. Locally sourced building materials carry a smaller carbon footprint and also supporting local economies.

Reclaim, Repurpose, Reuse

From refinishing kitchen cabinets to incorporating recycled stone into your project, reclaiming, repurposing, and reusing materials will improve the efficiency of your renovation by reducing your project’s waste and helping your budget. Finding new life for any existing product eliminates the manufacturing and transportation emissions from producing something new, creates less landfill destined waste, and reduces your renovation’s carbon footprint.

Intentional Deconstruction

There is a bit of a thrill in “demo day” but it is important to intentionally deconstruct your project space rather than totally demolish it. By taking time to decide what can be repurposed or refurbished, you can give many materials a second chance rather than throwing them out as waste. You can then either use these salvaged items into your renovation or sell/donate them to a local material resource center.

Finish That Basement!

With summer squarely in the rearview mirror now, it’s just about the right time of year to start looking ahead to the… holidays! Can you believe it already? Just as it always seems that time is simply flying by, it also seems that living space is always scarce around the holidays. Whether it’s the extra room to entertain and socialize with friends and family when they visit, or a place for them to stay while they’re in town, a finished basement adds so much form and function to a house — and now is a good time to get started, even if it’s not done by the holidays, fall is still a great time to get it done in time for next year. 

A Blank Canvas

If you’re one of the homeowners fortunate enough to even have a basement the benefit is huge, and for good reason. Not only can you carve out a great living space where friends and family can gather for socializing, movie nights, and much more, but you essentially have a blank canvas that you can design however you’d like in order to include all the features that are important to you. Whether it’s a mini-kitchen, wet bar, game room, home theater, extra bedrooms, bathrooms, extra storage space or anything else, the possibilities are truly endless.

Increased Home Value

Finishing or renovating a basement space not only helps when you want the extra space, but it also helps to add value to your home in case you ever decide to sell it. Homes in the Atlanta area with a finished basement are highly desirable to prospective buyers, which helps you to increase the return on your investment.

Fall is One of the Best Times

As you can probably imagine, outdoor construction projects tend to slow down for contractors, leaving them eager for projects during the fall and winter months. Not only might this allow some contractors to offer price breaks and other such offers, but construction materials and other things necessary for the project may also be less expensive, as well.

Green Basements & Remodeling

While there are many different ways to maximize your basement space, there is really only one way to begin such a project; that’s with the expert help that can only come from a licensed contractor. Green Basements & Remodeling specializes in basement finishing and remodeling, and so much more. With a complete in-house design center featuring state-of-the-art 3D renderings that allow you to see your space before construction even begins, the experts on the Green Team can walk you through the entire process from start to finish to ensure that your basement project is uniquely crafted to suit you and your family.

Full Steam Ahead with an In-Home Spa Experience

If you’re like any other homeowner, there’s no doubt that you’re probably always looking for ways to improve your home to enhance not only its value and your equity in it (should you ever decide to sell it), but also to enhance the way you use it and live in it. One great way to add enhance your lifestyle with a relatively inexpensive renovation is with a custom steam shower installation for your master bathroom.

Luxurious and Convenient

Imagine coming home after the longest, most-trying day ever. You’re worn out, achy, and beyond stressed. Never mind the fact that you just might be feeling a little cold coming on, too. If you had a steam shower in your house, you could escape for a quick 20-minute session that leaves you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and maybe even breathing (and thinking) a little more clearly. While health experts have long sung the praises of steam and its therapeutic benefits, nothing quite compares to the ease and luxury of having your very own personal spa-like experience to enjoy at home whenever you’d like. 

It’s In the Details

While an ordinary shower stall can be converted into a steam room/shower for a relatively small investment that will surely pay off in the long run, there are also all-in-one steam stall kits that can be installed in a permanent and dedicated area. Basically, a small generator fills with a couple gallons of water once you activate the power via digital controls. An electric element in the generator then heats up and boils the water just before the steam is sent via pipe into the stall through a disperser or steam head. For the ultimate in spa-like living, make sure to add the little details that make a huge difference, too. Features like seating, interactive LED lighting, sound systems, aromatherapy scents, and towel warmers add a wonderful touch to an already incredible experience. 

Go with a Pro

If this all sounds like an installation that’s beyond a simple DIY project, you’re pretty much right. The pros at Green Remodeling have been making Atlanta-area homeowners’ dreams come true for well over a decade now. A one-stop general contractor that can handle everything your project requires, the team at Green Remodeling can help you plan, design, and build your dream basement, bathroomkitchen, or even commercial space.

The Benefits of Radiant Floor Heating

 With the hot Georgia summer starting to wind down, you can be sure that it won’t be long before the brisk chill of fall and winter blow in to Atlanta, causing every homeowner to shiver — both literally and figuratively — at the increased energy cost of heating their home. 

The battle to keep a home comfortable and properly heated, however, is more than just forcing warm air into a space. The key is actually how to maintain ambient warmth, which in turn helps to avoid the need to heat more air unnecessarily, which wastes money and resources.

What is Radiant Floor Heating?

One great way to maintain a room’s ambient warmth is by using radiant floor heating. Basically, radiant floor heating is a heating system that’s hidden under the floor that conducts heat through the floor’s surface — either via electric wires or hot water tubes — rather than through the air, like a traditional forced-air heating system. Of course, because a radiant floor heating system requires installation under the floor, it’s a wonderful addition to a renovation or remodeling project that includes new flooring. 

The Benefits of Radiant Floor Heating

Not only does a radiant floor heating system give you the wonderful benefit of warm, heated floors that will surely feel oh-so good under your bare tootsies on a chilly winter morning, but because heat rises up all the way from the floor, it also helps to keep the room warmer, more evenly, and more effectively. In addition, because it heats a room more evenly, that means that it requires a lower temperature to do so, which results in not only less energy used, but a lower heating cost, overall. 

Your One-Stop Contractor

For a comprehensive look at all the benefits a radiant floor heating system offers, make sure to consult with a local, licensed contractor with a track record of experience and integrity that you can trust when it comes to what is ultimately your largest lifetime investment — your home.

Sunrooms: Let the Sunshine In

When it comes to great home additions and renovation projects for Georgia homeowners, many potential remodeling projects may come to mind, but few are as unique and cost-effective as a sunroom. Generally built onto the rear or side of the house, a sunroom is a glassed-in addition that allows ample sunlight into the room via multiple large window panels that surround the room. The open, airy feeling that a sunroom offers makes for a great place to entertain, relax, and expand your living space. While there are a few different types of sunrooms (three-season, four-season, screen rooms, solariums, etc.), Atlanta’s extreme range of seasonal temperatures might require the comfort and convenience that comes with a climate-controlled, fully-enclosed four-season sunroom that can be enjoyed year-round.

 

Lots of Benefits

Not only will a sunroom add unique functionality to your home, but a sunroom also adds value to your home without breaking the bank, which helps to increase the return on your investment and thus, the equity in the home — something every homeowner should be looking to do. Whether a sunroom is built over an existing concrete patio slab foundation, a new slab, or you’re converting a covered porch or patio, it’s a cost-effective addition that’s not only relatively easy for a licensed professional to build, but takes less time than other similar projects.

 

Plenty of Options

When you work with a trusted licensed home remodeling and renovation contractor, not only will they walk you through the basic options regarding frame and roof options, but they can also discuss unique features that will help to customize your sunroom for the ultimate in luxury, comfort, and convenience. Would you like to add glass roof panels or skylights for additional light? Would you like rolling window panels and screen panels that allow you to open the room for a cool, calm spring breeze? Would you like double-pane windows for maximum energy efficiency? A professional contractorcan explain all the features available to you and the benefits of each in order to help you build the space of your dreams.

What to Ask Potential Remodeling Contractors

With the arrival of spring and summer soon approaching, the average Atlanta homeowner is probably already well into making their respective DIY lists for the things they’d like to get done around the house. While there are plenty of things that an eager weekend warrior can tackle successfully, there are also plenty of things around the house that might be best left to the professionals, especially remodeling and renovation projects.

Depending on the size, scale, and complexity of the project, it’s generally best to seek out the expert help and experience of a professional home remodeling and renovation contractor to make sure that everything goes the way it’s supposed to. But before you hire a contractor to handle your remodel, there are a few questions you should make sure to ask before you decide which contractor to hire for the project.

Do You Have a List of References?

Before you decide on a contractor to do any work of any kind around your house, you should always ask them for a list of references that you can call on in order to ask about the contractor’s practices and performance. In addition, make sure to check various review websites for customer reviews and testimonials. Any trustworthy contractor would be more than happy to offer references and/or testimonials in order to make you feel more confident about hiring them to do the work. For an added touch, the right contractor will also have a gallery or portfolio of photos to showcase their work and craftsmanship.

When Can I Expect the Project to be Finished?

It’s only common sense to imagine that before undertaking anything of such magnitude and expense, it’s important to know when it’s slated to be finished. Also, it would be a wise point to ask your contractor not only for the projected end date on the project, but for certain points of progress, as well. These are all great things to ask beforehand in order to keep up on your contractor’s progress and performance.

How Much Will This Cost?

Without a doubt, one of the most important aspects of the project is how much it’s going to cost. Even though you may have already received a detailed estimate before work started, it’s still vital that you receive an itemized and detailed cost sheet to keep you abreast of all costs during the project to prevent any unforeseen expenses that may come up prior to the completion of the project. Make sure to compare each line of your initial estimate to the cost at the end of the project to check for any disparity between the two.

See Your Rustic-Chic Remodel Come to Life

When it comes to home renovation and remodeling projects, few things are as daunting for a homeowner as selecting a style for the new decor. While it’s easy to know that you want something new and refreshed, picking a style for the new environment may not always come as easily.

Rustic-Chic

One style trend that continues to draw the attention of many of today’s top designers and decorators is rustic-chic. Incorporating the use of worn and rustic elements with the presence of new and contemporary items in order to achieve a transitional feel that is both elegant and approachable, rustic-chic is a cohesive and effective style option for any room of the house. Rough-sawn wood elements such as wood beams for ceilings or sliding barn doors are wonderful rustic-chic elements that homeowners can incorporate into their renovation and remodeling plans. The combination of various natural materials such as stone, rock, and wood are great ways to showcase the earthy feel of a rustic-chic decor, both inside and outside. Emphasizing the natural feel of the space, natural light can even be used as a design element to highlight a rustic-chic decor, keeping the room bright, yet warm. Because its very essence is the use of something old or worn to create a new and relevant decor, rustic-chic can allow for easy transformation in some remodeling projects.

But How Will it Look?

Sure, you may have catalogs, swatches, idea books, and other such sources of rustic-chic inspiration, but when it comes to actually seeing how the new surroundings and its elements will look, you’re often left hoping for the best. At Green Remodeling, we’re proud to offer a unique “See It Before We Build It” approach to designing your new space.
