3 Tips to Check Out Before Upgrading Your California Home

Whether you just purchased your home or you have lived here in Union City, CA for a long time, there seems to always be something to do, improve, or upgrade around the home, doesn’t there? Truth be told, you will fare better if your chosen upgrades are completed with intention and not impulse. I know how easy it is to become squirrely in the springtime and want to renovate your space from floor to ceiling—but practice some restraint and take time to learn about what you need in home improvements!

Check out these 3 important tips for home improvements from your local experts here at R&M Quality Windows & Doors!

  1. Don’t “sprint”
    Upgrading your home is not a sprint, it’s a marathon. As cliché as that may sound, it is Remember to take it easy on yourself and don’t bog your schedule down with an impossible timeline. If you just moved into your home, give it some time and get to know your home as it relates to you and your family. See how you settle in and how each room is used before doing an overhaul in upgrades. If you’ve lived in your home for a long time, start your lists:
  • Must-have renovations: We all know what these are—these are the upgrades you know your home needs. Things like roof repair, window replacements, flooring fixes, etc.
  • Dream renovations: Every time you complete two necessary upgrades of some sort, check out this list for a dream-task you can tackle. Examples: 3-season porch, luxury dining room lighting, etc.
  1. Tackle one room or one project at a time
    This will help you manage your budget closely. If you take on too much at one time, it’s all too easy to become overwhelmed, lose energy/stamina for the process, and experience a creativity block. Fight the urge to “go big or go home” and focus your attention on one space, then the next, then the next.
  2. Windows make all the difference
    If there’s one upgrade you can do to your Union City home that will provide an instant aesthetic boost and efficiency improvement to your home, it’s the windows. I know—windows are a significant cost. But, remember that upgrading your windows (if needed/desired) is an investment in your home. I suggest you start by looking into vinyl window options here at R&M! Vinyl windows are known for:
  • Their affordability
  • Their flexibility to work in many styles of homes
  • Their durability and weather-resistance
  • Their energy efficiency

Home improvements are a big deal—you want to take them on slowly, steadily, and with intention!
