REMODELING FOR PET OWNERS

According to the Humane Society, almost four out of every 10 households in the United States own a pet. The Humane Society says there are approximately 73 million dogs and 90 million cats living in American homes.

You may think a person would have to be a bit eccentric to go to the expense of building or remodeling with their pets in mind. But if you consider that you create your home to suit yourself and your children, and even guests, it’s not a leap to go beyond that and consider your pets. If you are going to share your life with your pets, then it makes perfect sense to build or remodel your home with your pets in mind.

Pets fills a need in many people’s lives and that bond between them can run very deep. Pet owners who place a high premium on their pet companionship includes young single people who move away from home and family for employment reasons, divorced individuals, empty nesters, childless couples and families with children. Pets are often an extension of the family unit and are even sometimes included in family vacations.

As home remodelers, we have seen many pet owners plan for their pets as they prepare to remodel their home. Now, most cats don’t necessarily need catnip-filled satin pillows nor do most dogs need their own doggie bedroom, but as a pet owner, you may want to provide them with a little something extra like a little cubby they can call their own or a small window at floor level so they can sit on the floor, feel the outdoor breeze and stare into the garden at birds and such.

A few other ideas that come to mind might be an indoor pet retreat that would be located by an outside door or a platform bed designed as a window seat or a cat ramp that would diagonally run up a wall to meet a shelf. How about a doggy overlook that would let your dog stick his head through a square opening on the second floor in order to keep tabs on his owners below. Another simple thing you might want to consider would be stain-resistant fabrics and carpeting.

Pet-friendly home remodeling is a recent but very popular trend and since many of those folks consider their furry companions as a part of the family, then why not take them into consideration when remodeling. Home remodeling for pets gives homeowners a chance to incorporate some innovative decorating ideas that not only help the home stand out when it’s time to sell, but makes it more suitable to their lifestyle while they are still living there.

Even though some pet owners may go to extremes to pamper their furry friends, you don’t have to spend a lot of money or give up much space in order to provide your pet with a little something special just for them. In fact, pet owners have always made simple home improvements to accommodate their pets, such as installing a dog or cat door, but more and more pet owners are taking it a step further and creating something special for their pets and are creatively incorporating some of those ideas right in to the design of their home.

There are no shortage of home builders and remodelers in the Pinellas, Hillsborough and Manatee County areas. So how should you go about choosing the right new home builder in Florida? This article gives an overview of the process of selecting the best home building contractor in Florida, but the same criteria could be used to select a remodeling contractor as well.

The Florida home builders with the highest quality homes to offer tend to follow a general set of guidelines in their construction procedures. Each builder is different, of course, but high-quality builders have certain things in common.

First, they use the highest quality materials and usually build their homes with solid, poured concrete. It’s even better if they use steel-reinforced concrete that is designed to withstand a powerful hurricane. When purchasing a home in Florida, hurricane safety must be a consideration. The highest quality home builders pride themselves on building homes that are above hurricane code. Ask about features such as impact resistant windows and a greater number of roof truss straps.

ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS IN HIRING A REMODELING CONTRACTOR

When you are deciding on a contractor for your remodeling project, it is not only important to ask questions, but it is also important to ask the right questions. Questions like “When can you start?” and “How long will it take?” are both good questions, but better questions might be “How long have you been in business?” “What will be your approach to this project?” and “Does your company carry workers compensation and liability insurance?” You may also want to ask questions like “Are you a Certified Green Professional?” and “Are you a Lead Paint certified contractor?” These are all questions to ask to help you, as a homeowner, make an educated decision as to who to hire for your remodeling project.

An important thing to remember when asking these questions is that sometimes a non-answer may give you more useful insight into who a particular remodeler is, than an actual answer. Ask questions, listen to the answers, and then follow your instincts. Once you decide on a particular contractor, then you can discuss when they will start, what time they will be arriving at your house each morning and when you will have your home to yourselves again. These are all important concerns that can be discussed later at a pre-construction meeting.

As members of the (NARI) National Association of the Remodeling Industry, you can rest assured that we at American Housing Remodeling, Inc. will have right answers for all of your questions and the knowledge to address all of your concerns.
