Scott Rajavuori Comments on Summer Remodeling Season

Summer is many people's favorite season. It's a time for barbeques, vacations and fun in the sun! It's also my favorite season to remodel with the Titus Contracting team. I love the longer days and completing larger projects. I feel like I can make more of an impact when I complete a larger scope of work on one home. The whole team works hard all summer, but in the end, it all pays off. In this blog, I'm going to review some of the best aspects of the summer remodeling season.

Larger Projects
Summer is the perfect time for a lot of our clients to invest in larger projects. It is easier to complete projects where some walls will need removed and parts of their home will be exposed to the elements. It's easier to complete a project in a timely fashion without the threat of snow. Any inclement summer weather usually passes quickly and will dry fast.

Longer Days
More daylight time means more work time for remodelers. During the summer, we are able to complete more projects because we have more hours to do them. Though we don't really spend any less time on any one project, we can get them done in a fewer amount of days. You're getting the same quality workmanship from the Titus Contracting crew.

More Convenient
The warmer seasons are often more convenient for many of our customers. First of all, it is a very popular time to vacation. This means you may be able to coordinate your remodeling project with your vacation. Even if you can't, it's usually easier to be out of the house while your project is being completed.

If you're looking to start a remodeling project this summer, Titus Contracting is the team to call today at 952-746-7817 or Contact Them Online.

MSN Real Estate Says Home Remodeling Better Value in 2013

 Good news for homeowners, contractors and everyone else involved with home remodeling: its comeback continues to strengthen. 

Rising home prices get the credit. Owners around the country are recouping 61% of remodeling costs when they sell. The survey finds that smaller projects and practical replacement jobs lead the list.
For Scott Rajavuori and the Titus Contracting LLC team, this news couldn’t be any more exciting. While the recovery continues to gain traction, Scott and Titus will do what they do best: remodeling projects for homes and businesses.

And while Scott and Titus have fared better in terms of work than other contractors, they still welcome this news, as they know a stronger industry means better things for them.

Scott Rajavuori & Titus Contracting LLC Keep Busy

It might be hot outside, but that’s not keeping Scott Rajavuori and the Titus Contracting LLC from getting many jobs done. The company’s commercial and residential remodeling divisions continue to grow, and they’re happy to be able to keep busy.

What has Titus Contracting been working on all over the Minneapolis and St Paul areas? Here are some recent highlights:

Kitchen Remodeling
Many homeowners have been coming to Scott and Titus Contracting to handle their kitchen remodeling needs. These jobs have included the following work:
·         New flooring
·         New fixtures
·         New cabinetry and countertops
·         HVAC
·         Plumbing
·         Replacement windows
·         Paint

The above list is only a small sampling of what Titus Contracting is capable of doing in terms of a kitchen remodel. You can visit the Titus Contracting kitchen remodeling page for all the details.

Second Floor Additions
As a family grows and more people are living in one residence, many Twin Cities-area homeowners are choosing to increase the size of their current home rather than looking for a bigger residence to buy. One of the most popular additions of this type is a second-floor addition, which adds another level of living space onto your home.

3-Season & 4-Season Porches

For homeowners looking for a way to bring the outside in their home, a great option may be either a 3-season or a 4-season porch, depending on your budget. These porches are just like room addition, but with some important difference. You can read the Titus Contracting blog to learn all about the differences between 3-season porches and 4-season porches.

The importance of construction management

One of the most common questions Scott Rajavuori is asked is whether construction management is an important part of any home or commercial remodeling project. In a recent blog for Titus Contracting, Scott tackled this very topic. He noted construction/project managers will be able to:
·         Keep the project on track
·         Prevent the project from running into issues and increased costs
·         Correct any unanticipated problems

When you have a construction manager overseeing the project, you have an expert who is familiar with how construction and remodeling projects should work, and who will turn your ideas into something tangible.
