At TrustBilt, we make dreams come true!

Have you been perusing through design magazines and online websites that offer good remodeling ideas but fail to be realistic on costs? At TrustBilt of Albuquerque, New Mexico, we have good news for you. We offer affordable remodeling packages for everyone, and we can show you how to transform your space on a budget.

Detail, Detail, Detail

Before you ever begin a remodeling project with a licensed professional, you should pay close attention to details. Whether you want to renovate your current space or just moved into a new home that needs to be adapted to you needs, make sure that you cover all the options when it comes to design. You can expect to pay some money to keep your home updated and comfortable. However, you do not have to break the bank for good design elements or details. No need to go with luxurious design if you are more of a lay back, easy going individual. The most important element that you can incorporate into your new space is your personality. Chances are, you have a pretty good idea what you already want and need to make the space your own.

Stylish Comfort and Affordability

Living rooms are the place where family and friends hang out, so you do not want it to be too stuffy or so plush that no one can relax. You can increase elegance through lighting and molding and keep the room relaxed enough to kick back and read your favorite novel. If you have small children in the home, think about storage spaces for toys and books etc., which can be incorporated into the design without taking up too much of the area. We offer great design ideas that can add elegance and practicality to your living room space while meeting the needs of everyone in the home.

Bathroom Details Should Rank HIGH on Your Remodeling List

Where do you begin each day? Most people will answer, “In the bathroom.” This is all the more of a reason to make sure that you pay attention to details when remodeling or renovating your bath area. Almost every one of our customers desires a space that looks chic and feels luxurious. Marble counters and floors are a beautiful design element that can be affordable and make the bathroom more inviting. Cast iron tubs are coming back as a must have, but regardless, make sure that every element down to the lighting and electrical switches are exactly where you want them to be. Nothing feels more relaxing than a bathroom that is laid out to meet your custom needs, so don’t feel pressured to rush through the process of creating that perfect design.

Should I Move or Remodel?

Are you considering a move because your home does not meet your current needs? You love your neighborhood, your location and cannot imagine what it would be like if you moved away, however; you are in a dilemma. Taking on a big move can be costly and tiring, and right now, housing values are declining. As the market fluctuates, it can be risky to find the right time to move or sell. That is why TrustBilt of Albuquerque, NM is offering answers to whether you should move or remodel.

Making More Room for a Growing Family

Usually, deciding to move comes quickly, especially when the home you live in just isn’t meeting your family’s needs anymore. What if the current home you live in could allow for more useable space? Does your property allow for a room addition, and would that remedy your concerns? These are all questions that you will need to be able to answer before making a bigger decision to move. The best way to know if remodeling is feasible for you, is to request a free estimate from a reliable remodeling company like TrustBilt of Albuquerque, New Mexico. We will be more than honest with you if a remodel is a viable solution to your problems. More often than not, remodeling can save the headache of a big move!

There Is No Payback for Moving

Money spent in moving cannot be recouped, and it is expensive. Once you put together the costs of moving, finance charges, real estate commissions, utility deposits and other unplanned bills, it adds up quickly. Don’t forget to factor in the taxes that change with a move. It’s true that your taxes may increase slightly with a remodel, but not anywhere near the amount if you take on a big move. When you compare the appreciation of a remodeled home, you can stay longer where you are at, while the property value increases. Then, if you want to move, move on your terms and not because your home no longer meets your needs. Once a remodel makes your space more manageable, you can wait until the real estate market picks up before putting a sale sign in your yard.

Is Your Remodeling Job In Touch With Reality?

No one wants to have a remodel done only to find out that there is no return on your investment. One of the best ways to make sure that your remodel is justified is to know the return you can expect on home improvement. Some remodeling or upkeep projects like new siding or a minor bath update can bring in 2/3 or more on every dollar spent. Sunrooms and pools usually do not yield a high ROI, so be cautious as to what kind of remodel or renovation you are seeking to increase the value of your home. In doing so, you can decide whether to stay put for a few more years or many more years to come.

If you need a free estimate for a remodel or renovation, call TrustBilt of Albuquerque, New Mexico today at (505) 688-8194. We provide businesses and homeowners remodeling services throughout New Mexico including Santé Fe and Albuquerque, NM areas.

Have You Ever Been Over Your Head in a Remodel?

Uncategorized

over your head

Almost any homeowner has experienced the woes of attempting a remodel without any experience under the belt. What initiates an unexpected remodel usually happens when a water pipe burst or when mold is discovered. For instance, the molded portion of the bath is ripped out and then the idea surfaces to do a remodel since the bath is all but unusable. Eventually, days turn into weeks and weeks into months, and for some, years begin to pile up waiting of the repair or remodel to be completed. Have you ever been over your head in a remodel? At TrustBilt LLC of Albuquerque, New Mexico, we offer some good reasons why you should leave a remodel up to the pros!

Plumbing Can Be Intimidating

Now, we understand that a minor plumbing job can be done by someone not in the trade. This could involve changing a gasket in a faucet, unclogging a sink or toilet, or replacing a pipe under the sink. However, when it comes to moving water lines and pipes around the room or installing new lines, you are better off having a licensed plumber take on the tasks. For one, they work more efficiently, have the right tools, and if anything goes wrong, they handle it. Using a professional plumber to set up your water pipes and sewer system will save you a bundle of money in the end, while offering you a piece of mind.

Electrical Work Isn’t for the Novice

There are many things that do it yourself amateurs can attempt to do but electrical installation is not one of them. As savvy as a handyman that you might be, electrical work can cost your life if approached without knowledge. At TrustBilt, we use only licensed electrical professionals to ensure that any electrical wires and moving of electrical service is accomplished safely and that your home is protected from any danger. An open wire can cause injury and also cause a catastrophe. Safety is the first thing on our list when it comes to our customers and our employees.

Tiling, Painting, and Installing Floor Can Be Gruesome

In reality, once you are ready to paint, tile or install flooring, it is time to be realistic with yourself. After prepping a room, you want to make sure that the final result after all of the work looks professional and will last for years to come. Some DIY paint jobs are quite remarkable! However, most people are clueless on how to smooth out a wall or add texture. Also, the stroking of the paintbrush or roller can be a game changer if it leaves behind lines and blemishes afterward. How about unique painting techniques such as glazing or other applications that you would like to add to your project? That’s not something an amateur can pull off quickly. Tiling is another challenge that a novice should never try to do. Though the principle of tiling is pretty straight forward, cutting, lining it up and ensuring that the patterns are cohesive takes a professional eye. Installing flooring also requires an eye that is keen on troubleshooting issues that will cause problems down the road such as floor leveling and product knowledge.

Why Do Many Customers Wait Until Summer for a Remodel Project?

Uncategorized

summer 2  At TrustBilt of ABQ, New Mexico, we have been in the industry long enough to understand why our customers choose summertime for major remodels. There are several good reasons why summer is the most popular time of the year to take on a remodeling project. Here are some facts that may help you understand why many customers wait until summer for a remodel project.

Longer Days and Nights

The summer season brings with it longer days and nights that help the construction crew be able to work extra hours and get the project accomplished faster. With that thought in mind, who likes a remodel job that appears to be unending? Fortunately, we have never experienced such a remodel, but we have heard the nightmares of some of our competitors. We like taking advantage of longer work days and getting the job done, making both our team of professionals happy and our customers!

Summer Remodels Allow For Less Drying Time and More

Not only does summer bring with it warmer temps, but it also allows for applications of texture, paint, and other design elements to dry more quickly. We can open the windows and apply stain, sealer or paint, and it will dry in half the time. Also, if you have ever had a remodel done before, then you know the fumes of paint and other products can affect some members of your household. The outdoor summers in New Mexico make for a nice match when it comes to keeping your indoor air quality bearable.

Take a Vacation and Leave the Remodel to the Professionals!

At summertime, many families like to take vacations. Vacation time is a prime time for a remodel, as no one in the family needs to be exposed to paint smells or dust. Sometimes this is a significant factor in why our clients book their remodels in the summertime. We stay in touch with our customers, as little or as much as they want during their vacation. We can send pictures and updates and may need to ask minor questions of our clients, so having a contact number makes the project go smoothly without a hitch. When you plan to come home after the remodel is done, you will experience a clean and ready to use refurbished area without any of the fuss of dust or odors.

Landscaping Remodeling Projects Move Faster

If your remodel includes a porch, patio or deck, it directly affects your yard space. When we finish the building of your new area, we then replace grass or do final stages of outdoor landscaping. During the summer, it’s prime time to plant new bushes and plants, as they will grow quickly. Also, this allows for the flow of your new outdoor area to come to life faster than in other times of the year.
