Owning a house in Oakville is a dream for many and a reality for the lucky families who call this fine city ‘home’. With home ownership comes responsibility to maintain and care for your property to preserve its value. There are many home improvements you can do that can significantly increase the value of your home. When you decide to do interior renovations (or exterior renovations, home additions, kitchen remodels, etc.), the first step is to find a contractor that is knowledgeable and experienced. Jim Carcone, of Carcone Construction in Mississauga, has been doing interior home renovations in Oakville and the surrounding areas for over 25 years. Jim works with his clients/architects to make visions a reality – from heritage homes to modern builds. He loves to transform interior spaces to make them more useful and aesthetically pleasing. Whether you want to create more space by finishing a basement or attic, or remodel a kitchen or bath, Carcone Construction can do your interior renovations, with options to suit almost any budget.
“Many people in Oakville are buying the older bungalows that have more land, or new builds with unfinished basements. “Families’ needs can change – with more families caring for aging parents and children staying home longer. Moving can be expensive – and remodelling interior space can often be the best solution. It also adds value to the home.” According to the Appraisal Institute of Canada’s Home Renovation Survey, the best home renovations for return on the dollar are kitchen and bath renovations, followed by interior painting. Not only will you enjoy the improved comfort and style with renovations, you can get up to 100% return on your investment.
Many potential buyers will not even consider homes without renovated kitchens – with granite counters being a big draw for buyers. Other renovation trends in Oakville include adding bar or wine fridges to kitchens, as well as under the counter pullout freezers and refrigerated drawers for fruits and vegetables. Kitchen renovations may also include a scullery or butler’s pantry, which features areas for cleaning, preparing and storing foods – out of sight of guests.
Energy efficiency is also important – with newer appliances replacing old, energy consuming ones. Whatever your interior renovations or kitchen remodelling plans are, you can call Jim at Carcone Construction for a free estimate at (416) 953-5185.
