The 2015 Canadian Home Builders’ Association – Lethbridge Region Parade of Homes just wrapped up another successful year. The show homes in the parade this year were amazing and Kodiak Mountain Stone was fortunate enough to have product on more than half of them this year.
If you would like to see some of the show homes that had our products on them, watch this video:
During the show we talked to some of the home builders and really appreciate the testimonials they shared with us about using Kodiak Mountain Stone products:
“The natural and realistic appearance of Kodiak stone adds value and character to almost every home we build.”
“We have really enjoyed working with Jeff and the staff at Kodiak Mountain Stone. They have great products and we know that when we send a customer in to see them they are going to get the best service around. It’s a winning combination!”
“At Van Arbor Homes we have been using Kodiak Mountain Stone products for many years. We do some very different looks and make requests that often require some research to find and deliver. Mark and Jeff always come up with just what we are looking for or are able to suggest an appropriate alternative that we can use. We appreciate what it takes to walk the extra mile for customer service and they do it in spades.”
The Importance of picking the right renovation project
Often times whether your home is new or old. There’s parts of it you want to change. Many times even need to change. As much as we would like to wave our magic renovation wand & have it all change right before our eyes we have to weigh the pros and cons of which project to tackle first.
Family needs , esthetics & practicability are all factors that helps us determine which renovations get done when but above all else we want to know that we’re going to see returns on the projects that we’re taking on & that our renovations end up being exactly what they should be…investments in our home.
According to the stats compiled by remodeling.net there are a few that you might want to leave at the bottoms of your list. Some of the renovations with the least amount of return are Sunroom additions with only 48% of your cost recouped. A smidge above this is a master bathroom addition with approximately 53% of your cost returned. The next renovation surprisingly, is a Garage addition with 54%.
If you’re looking for some renovations that offer a little more bang for your buck. Look no further then manufactured stone which is the renovation that comes in just second from the top at offering you the best return at 92%. Second to only replace your entry door recouping 100% of your cost. Some other great options for home renovations are a garage door replacement coming in at 88%.
