The Money Squeeze!

Like most businesses, American Housing has had to tighten its belt over the past few years and now that production cost increases again loom on the horizon, we will soon be having to add these increases on to the price of our one and two story Room Additions.

Over the past couple of months, we have been put on notice by several of our suppliers that material prices will be increasing by the end of the year. They have informed us that because of increases they have had to bear in obtaining health, auto and liability insurances, along with having to pay more for diesel fuel for the transporting of the materials, they can no longer absorb these costs and are being forced to increase the price of their products.

So far, we have been informed that concrete products will increase by 15%, steel rebar and rebar products will increase by 10%, all metal truss straps, anchor bolts and wire mesh will increase by 15%, all masonry bag goods will increase by 15% and drywall materials may increase by as much as 35%.

We at, American Housing, would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our past customers for allowing us to be your builder and thank you for supporting us throughout the years. The past few years have been difficult for those in the building industry, but because of the loyalty of our customers, we have survived this anemic building climate and we look forward to working with our new customers in the exciting years to come.

So, if you, or anyone you know is interested in a one or two story Room Addition, please call us at 727-546-6611, so we can lock in at today’s pricing.

Homeownership is still the American Dream!

The American Dream!

American Housing is very involved in community projects and recently partnered up with the City of St. Petersburg, Florida and Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County in order to build a new home and fulfill the dream of homeownership for a local family.

At a small home dedication ceremony celebrating this achievement, Clarence Scott, St. Petersburg City Council Member, welcomed many from the community, including Lee Kretzer and Carla Slicker from American Housing, to the “Presenting of the Keys” to the new owner, Mr. Jones. Ron Spoor of Habitat Pinellas opened with a prayer. “We gather to celebrate the commitment and determination of Mr. Jones and to thank all of the people who worked together to turn Mr. Jones’s dream of homeownership into reality. May this home we dedicate today become a beacon of hope for him and others. Together we pray. Amen.”

New Home Dedication by Clarence Scott, III

American Housing Remodeling, Inc., through the City of St. Petersburg Neighborhood Stabilization Program, recently built this beautiful new home for Mr. Jones and his family. This achievement was celebrated at the home site on Tuesday, March 8, 2011 with members of the City of St. Petersburg City Council, members of the City’s NSP Program and members of Habitat for Humanity of Pinellas County.

At the ceremony, there were gifts for Mr. Jones and his family. A Habitat volunteer provided Mr. Jones with a “symbolic” Habitat for Humanity hammer to take care of those small jobs around the house. City of St. Petersburg Council Members Wingay Newton and Bill Dudley gave the proud new owners an American flag and Kevin Klucas gave a “Welcome” mat. David Fornek offered Mr. Jones a new Bible for him and his family.

Clarence Scott, City of St. Petersburg Council Member, then gave Mr. Jones the keys to his new home. A proud Mr. Jones then proceeded to thank the City and American Housing for helping him and his family achieve their dream of owning their own home.

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.

American Housing Remodeling, Inc. is a member of NARI, the National Association of the Remodeling Industry and as builders in the Tampa Bay area, we acknowledge the importance of this organization for homeowners when they add a room addition or a remodeling project on to their home.
