-- AJ's Windows and Gutters
is a homeowner's best friend for household renovations. Based in Chicago, the company depends on its highly trained staff to install, repair, and clean its clients' windows and gutter systems. The company has made a name for itself for its clients looking to freshen up their homes and businesses.
According to a recent article
in the Charlotte Observer, renovation is a stressful time for homeowners. The couple cited in their article run their own interior decorating and home renovation and real estate businesses, though no matter how experienced they are renovating a home is no easy task. They have collaborated on 15 different residential renovation projects, but the most difficult was their own home when they worked together side-by-side.
"Renovating your home is fun, challenging, and a good learning experience," representatives from AJ's Windows and Gutters say. "We make sure windows and gutters are the least of your worries and offer quality products and services with prices to match."
The article recommends several tips for couples looking to renovate a home together in order to avoid conflict and stay focused on the task at hand. The first piece of advice is to set a budget; renovators are expected to go over by at least a quarter of any planned investment, which is why it is crucial for renovating couples to work together to meet in the middle. If one person wants to install an expensive bathtub that busts the budget, for example, the other should look for ways to make ends meet.
The Charlotte Observer says that couples often clash in terms of style. Women, according to the article, often go for color-filled designs while males go for a more streamlined, industrial approach. Compromise is crucial here just like it is during the budgeting phase; this includes painting, interior decorating, which furniture to buy, the lighting, and appliances.
The planning process should take just as long as the actual renovations, according to the article. By creating a plan of attack, renovating couples can minimize construction time and avoid snags and money sinks. Couples should select and know where to pick up equipment, tools, parts, and furniture before starting a project.
"While renovating, homeowners should get input from every member of the family," AJ's Windows and Gutters says. "It's your kids' house too, even if they're not paying for it. Try to get everyone involved as well."
The article says that another key to success for renovating couples is to know each other's strengths. In the article, for example, one person is better at making decorating decisions and the other is better at getting work done efficiently with little hassle. This is important when homeowners employ outside crews to help with renovations; any slow down or argument wastes time and money.
The final tips the article gives is to practice professional courtesy and keep tempers in check. When sledgehammers are crashing down walls and couples are conflicted over decisions, take a step back and do what is best for the house. AJ's Windows and Gutters understands renovating is a difficult time for any couple, which is why it does its own part efficiently and completely.
AJ's Windows and Gutters is a full-service windows and gutters installation company. Home and business owners in the Chicago area count on the company for cleaning, installation, and gutter and window repair. It is also highly regarded by homeowners looking to renovate; a new set of energy-efficient windows, for instance, can brighten a room while reducing heating and cooling costs.
