This year is a busy one for me. Aside from blogging and events organizing, I also helped my father oversee the remodeling job we had at home.
No, don’t get me wrong. I didn’t do any of the carpentry, plumbing, and painting. We had workers for that. What I did was help out in the sourcing, selection, and purchasing of materials.
The best thing about the whole experience is that I learned a lot. For instance, when we were purchasing materials, I learned that most quality and durable items are very costly. But for those who are remodeling their homes on a budget there are cheaper alternatives that will also serve the purpose, if you just know where to look.
Our home was of the low-cost housing kind. It was built using the cheapest materials so time came when everything except the concrete foundation had to go. For instance, all of our hollow-core exterior and interior doors were dilapitated and almost falling off the hinges so I had to look for cost-effectiv replacements.
I wanted solid wood interior and exterior door panels because are durable and more resistant to warping. Honestly, solid wood doors are a tad expensive but they are elegant and resistant to splitting and warping. We have a local supplier who willingly gave us a good price. And if you are still looking for a supplier for your remodeling needs, you can consider buying an external door here. They have a huge selection of exterior doors including entry doors, oak doors, french doors, contemporary external doors, and even stable doors. You just need to find the right door for your home.
Now that a huge housing rebound is seen globally, consumers need to be informed ones. There is high demand for homes and house hunters are not only looking at new homes but remodeled existing ones as well. So it will help greatly if they know what are the best materials for their home remodeling needs.
