Message from the NARI Atlanta president

Springtime is here, temperatures are warming up and this is the year you decided to take on your remodeling project. Maybe it’s a new deck for outdoor living, or time to update that kitchen or bathroom.

As a homeowner looking at a remodeling project, you must pay close attention to many details to ensure that you find the right contractor that will suit your needs and preferences. Before you start shopping, you should sit down with the members of your household to discuss your preferences and lay out a scope of work.

Within your list you should create a “wants” list and “needs” list, this will be helpful when it comes to your budget. There are many ways and many options available to you to help get started on your project whether you go to a local home show or find ideas online.

A reputable remodeling company will have access to designers to assist you with making the best choices for your project. Designers not only help with colors, but they are a great resource for flow and function, figuring out how to utilize your space that best fits you and your lifestyle.

When looking for a remodeling company, most people ask friends and family who have had similar work done, a referral is a great source. If you don’t have that resource, please consider members of the National Association of Remodeling Industry (NARI). We have developed the Accredited Remodeling Company program to help you easily identify remodeling companies who have met the industry standard for

remodeling business management and operations.

NARI Certified Professionals have demonstrated their commitment to excellence and to validating their knowledge annually. NARI offers eight certifications that recognize that knowledge. The experience that remodelers gain from working with materials, tools and solving problems on a day-to-day basis is invaluable. A professional can anticipate potential issues and have a backup plan just in case.

Here are a few more tips in finding the right contractor to work with.

1. Stay Local

Local remodelers are compelled to perform quality work that satisfies their customers in order for their business to survive. Local firms can be checked through references including past customers in your community or through your local NARI chapter.

2. Follow Local Building Codes

Another advantage to hiring a local professional is that they will know the local building code and permit requirements for your town or city. Building codes vary considerably from each jurisdiction and are known to change from year to year. Most structural work or footprint expansions require permits.

3. Check for License and Insurance

Many states, but not all, require contractors to be licensed, bonded and/or insured.

Contact your state or local licensing agencies to ensure the contractor meets all requirements. Most states require a contractor to carry worker’s compensation, property damage, and personal liability insurance. Ask for a copy of their license and insurance certificate to make sure that it is current.

4. Compare Apples with Apples

If you solicit estimates from more than one remodeling contractor, be sure they are working off the same scope and quality of work. Discuss variations in prices and beware of any estimate that is substantially lower than the others.

As you start your search be sure that you have your “scope of work” figured out, a good contractor will ask a lot of questions, and this could easily increase your scope of work. (An example of this could be, if yours is a kitchen project, the questions your contractor asks may extend the scope of work to a mud room and or laundry room. This is part of the flow and function I mentioned earlier.) Next understand how you’re going to pay for your project. Remodeling is not like what you see on TV. It will take significant time and money, depending of course on the size of your project. There are a lot of great contractors out there, and the reputable ones are here to help you take on your project and see your dreams for your home become reality. Consulting the Contractor Directory at is a great place to start your search for the right contractor. (Scan the QR code to get started!)

How homeowners can embrace energy efficiency to save money and the environment

As energy costs continue to climb and environmental concerns become more urgent, homeowners increasingly turn to energy-efficient upgrades to cut their utility bills and minimize their ecological impact. This guide will introduce some of the most effective energy-saving upgrades that are gaining popularity among homeowners.

Solar Panels: Harnessing the Power of the Sun

One of the top choices for an energyefficient upgrade is installing solar panels. By converting sunlight into electricity, solar panels allow you to generate your own power and depend less on external energy sources. This reduces your electricity bills and lowers your carbon emissions since solar power is a clean and renewable energy source. Additionally, you can earn extra income in some areas by selling excess energy back to the grid.

Energy-Efficient Windows and Doors: Keeping Your Comfort In

Installing energy-efficient windows and doors is another effective upgrade. These are designed to prevent unwanted heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. With special coatings, gas fills, and improved frame designs, these windows and doors help maintain a comfortable indoor temperature

year-round, reducing the need to crank up your heating or cooling and thereby lowering energy costs.

Sustainable Building Materials: Eco-Friendly Choices

Opting for sustainable materials is another way to enhance your home’s energy efficiency. Materials like bamboo, cork, and recycled products have a lower environmental impact and can improve the sustainability of your home. These materials help reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a healthier living environment.

Energy-Efficient Appliances: High Performance, Lower Costs

Upgrading energy-efficient appliances is a straightforward approach to reducing energy usage. Modern energy-saving models of refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, and other household appliances use less electricity without sacrificing performance. This cuts down on your energy bills and helps reduce overall carbon emissions.

Choosing the Right Contractor: The LEED Advantage

If energy efficiency is a significant concern for you, consider hiring a LEEDcertified contractor. These professionals are trained and certified in sustainable building

practices, ensuring that your upgrades not only meet but exceed energy efficiency standards. A LEED-certified contractor can guide you through the process of designing and implementing sustainable solutions that fit your needs and budget while ensuring environmental responsibility.

Embracing energy-efficient home upgrades is a win-win; you’ll enjoy lower

energy bills and a more comfortable home while contributing positively to the environment. Whether you’re installing solar panels, updating energy-efficient windows, or choosing sustainable materials, these improvements can significantly enhance both your home’s value and your quality of life.

Time to refresh your 90s home? Here’s why you might consider it.

The 1990s brought significant cultural and technological shifts that shaped an era. Homes built during this time reflect the distinct design trends and construction methods of that decade. However, as we continue further into the 21st century, you might wonder if now the right time is to update your 90s home. Here are compelling reasons to consider a refresh:

Modernizing Outdated Designs: The design features of the 90s, like brass fixtures, sponge-painted walls, and bold floral wallpapers, might hold nostalgic value but can make your home feel dated. Modern trends favor minimalism, neutral colors, and sleek, contemporary fixtures. Updating these elements can revitalize your living space and enhance its appeal.

Boosting Energy Efficiency: Energy standards have dramatically improved since the 90s. By updating your home’s insulation, windows, and HVAC systems, you can reduce energy usage, lower your utility bills, and decrease your carbon footprint. Modern smart home technologies also offer additional ways to enhance efficiency and comfort.

Addressing Wear and Tear: After three decades, signs of aging are natural. Whether it’s the roof, deck, or plumbing, addressing these issues can prevent larger problems down the road, ensuring your home remains safe and durable.

Increasing Property Value: Real estate is an investment, and maintaining or increasing your home’s value is crucial. Modernized kitchens, updated bathrooms, and open living spaces are highly attractive to today’s homebuyers and can command a higher market price.

Adapting to Lifestyle Changes: The way we live has evolved since the 90s,

with more people working from home and an increase in multigenerational households.

Updating your home’s layout to include a home office, larger communal areas, or extra bedrooms can better accommodate these changing lifestyle needs.

Embracing Technological Advancements: While the 90s introduced us to the internet, today’s technology offers much more, from advanced security systems to smart appliances and integrated entertainment systems. These enhancements can significantly improve convenience and your overall home experience.

Personal Satisfaction: Finally, updating your home is a deeply personal decision that can bring great joy and satisfaction. Transforming your space to reflect your current tastes and preferences can make your home feel truly yours and a place you’re excited to return to each day.

While homes from the 90s carry their unique charm, updating can provide significant benefits, from enhancing

functionality and comfort to increasing the property’s value. If you decide to embark on renovations, prioritize updates that align with your longterm goals and budget. Always choose a licensed remodeler for your projects, ideally a member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI), to ensure quality and professionalism.
