Small Jobs

Small projects inside or outside your home can start to pile up over time. As a homeowner, you want to ensure that your home holds it value, but what if you haven’t the time or skill to complete these smaller projects? Deciding to hire a contractor to help you handle the load, can be a wise choice. Tandem believes that no job is too small, and whatever your interior/exterior project is, it deserves a big result! Oftentimes, homeowners embark on a hurried mission to complete small projects when they decide to sell. Others just want to beautify their home and add value. Whatever your reason for getting your small fix done, Tandem provides you with their trademark quality and customer service as they complete small fixes such as the following.

One of the best ways to improve the look of your home is to replace your doors, especially your front door. Do you want to boost curb appeal and make a lasting impression? Then a new front door is your answer. Tandem can help you choose a door that is in harmony with the architectural style of your house, such as leaded glass doors for Victorians or six-panel varieties for colonial-style homes. Picking a door in bright hues such as red or yellow adds a vibrant feel to your entrance. Softer hues such as blue or grey give a crisp look. Adding a transom or sidelights can brighten a dark foyer. A new front door can give you better security. Doors today are made of stronger materials such as metal and fiberglass that are manufactured to resist forced entry and last longer. Their up-to-date, bolt-locking systems and wide-angle peepholes, make them superior to older doors and certainly upgrade your home security. They also have better insulation properties that make them excellent energy efficient and cost-saving options. Your interior doors play a bigger role than you might think. They add architectural detail and style to a home. Interior doors come in a variety of colors, sizes, textures and finishes to match your house design. Again, Tandem will partner with you to choose and install doors that will make a noticeable difference as they add value to your home.

Replacing windows is another smaller job that Tandem can help you with. Replacing one or all of your windows is a great way to transform the look of your home, and one of those most effective home improvements you can make. Compared to the price of other home renovations, it can also be an affordable choice. Having efficient windows consistently ranks high when it comes to ROI (return on investment). They will boost your resale value, lower your energy bill by decreasing air-conditioning use in the summer, while providing better insulation in the winter. They can increase your privacy by reducing outside noise. Tandem can help you decide what windows are best for you. According to Consumer Reports magazine, wood frame, vinyl frame and fiberglass frame windows are the top choices of homeowners today. The different types of window options include casement (hinged on one side), double-hung (the lower inside sash slides up and an upper inside sash slides down), single-hung (only the bottom sash moves), awning style (hinged at the top and open outward), hopper style (hinged at the bottom and open in or out) and fixed windows (used where only lighting is important). Tandem will work with you to determine and install functional windows that will beautify your home.

Another small project is the addition of a shed. Adding a shed to your property can serve a multitude of needs. It can provide extra storage space or a potting area for gardeners, function as a play space or even a pool house. However, before you purchase your shed, there are important steps to consider. Tandem is here to help you. First you must consider size, type and function. Will it hold lawn equipment or Barbie’s dream house? Do you want a custom shed or just an install of a prefab? Will it need windows for that home office you are dreaming about? Measuring whatever is going into the shed will avoid unwanted surprises when you go to store items such as your riding lawnmower. You’d hate for it not to fit through the shed door! Tandem will keep you abreast of permits needed and your local zoning ordinances for size and how far from the property line your shed should be.

With any small project, working with a qualified professional contractor like Tandem, puts you at an advantage. You can begin to plan your small job knowing that it will be given the same attention to detail that a large project would require.
