Home Remodeling Tips

So you're in the market to do some remodeling to your Nashville area home but you're not quite sure where to start. The biggest question you should ask yourself:

Which remodeling project will add the most value to my home? Is this project worth the money?

Before you think big scale like a new kitchen, which does increase value, think smaller scale.

Think ... your front door.

Surprising, right? According to Remodeling magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report for 2014, a new front door will add about 97% of the money you spent to the value of your home.

Make sure it's the RIGHT front door for your home.

The saying, "Go big or go home" isn't entirely accurate for home remodeling projects. Quite often, replacing older elements of your house such as doors and windows will yield a greater return than larger projects.

So, if you're looking for a way to spruce up your home and not spend a lot in the process, call Fred Oakley Construction. They do jobs from as small as installing a new front door to additions, remodeling, build-outs, and everything in between!

Mixing Old And New: Historic Renovations

Undertaking any renovations can be a challenge. So when faced with a historic house or building, most people will tear down or move on, rather than conduct a historic home renovation. But if you talk to Fred Oakley Construction  just outside of Nashville, then you'll probably change your mind.
It's actually possible to mix the old with the new without breaking the bank. There are dozens of creative ways that you can remodel your historic home, while keeping the feel intact. One strategy is a home addition. By adding and addition to a house, you can have more room to work with, so more leeway with your home renovation then you would otherwise.
There is, however, a bit of knack for a remodel home renovation involving an addition. In Nashville and Middle Tennessee, there are extra rules governing some historic homes. Second, if the flow between the new addition and old historical house doesn't flow, then it can feel awkward and jarring.

That said, it can definitely be done. Fred Oakley Construction in Hendersonville, TN 37075 services the entire Middle Tennessee area, and specializes in adding more floor space with additions during home renovations to historic houses. So if you're thinking of tearing down, call Fred Oakley and think again.
