The Art of Remodeling
Written by: Mike J. Farrugia
What is the art of remodeling? You may be thinking "is remodeling really considered an art?". For the most part of my life, I have been around the remodeling industry, literally swinging hammers since diapers. I can confidently say, YES it is a form of art in a plethora of ways.
Growing up, my father owned a home remodeling business for 25 years, in which I worked for the company in the field as a carpenter for the better part of a decade while acquiring a degree in art and design, well into my 20s. Moving foward, I went on to work as a carpenter for another contractor once my dad retired. Soon after, I had opened my own company, MJF Home Upgrades Inc in 2016, based out of Massapequa, NY.
To say the least I know first hand what
is takes to run a successful remodeling business AND project from start to finish wheather it be a small bathroom renovation or a new construction build. I plan to lead you behind the curtain to give you a better understanding of WHAT REALLY goes into a successful remodeling project. Blog posts will dive deep inside some of the following topics to name just a few:
What goes on behind the scenes that most homeowner's will never see?
What design decisions are made that a homeowner will never even know was taken into consideration?
How much thought and skill goes into something as simple as placing a wall tile?
What is considered when scheduling the job, the processes and steps that are taken to make sure the project is ran smooth and efficient?
Should you trust handing over your hard earned money to someone you barely know?
How do you know the contractor you're about to hire, trust in your home, is the right company for the job?
These are a few of many topics I will dig into and give a better understanding to common concerns and questions I typically encounter when speaking with homeowners on a daily basis.
