Other Projects

Homes require all sort of renovation, and these changes can improve your home's security, durability, and energy conservation. Custom plans can also work for incredibly difficult or unique spaces. These areas need more planning beyond the traditional architectural plan, whether you have to plan around an awkward shape, window placement or specific kind of space, such as a basement. These spaces require much different renovation designs. For example, basements need waterproofing, sealing, moisture protective materials and intense lighting to change the space around. There are also specific considerations when remodeling, such as debris removal, clean-up, home insurance and security systems.

If your remodeling project will have you tearing down siding, handling hazardous or non-biodegradable materials, or throwing away a lot of wood and old furniture, then you'll need a debris removal service. Most contractors can help you with the clean-up of your remodel, but other contractors will hire another service to take your junk away. The disposal of these products is incredibly important. You can get into some real trouble for dumping or inadequately throwing away the discarded materials from your home remodel clean-up. You also want to make sure that you are using environmentally friendly methods of disposal.

There are some other unique projects that are specially made for your home, including indoor fire pits, skylights, solar design ideas, sprinkler systems and storage facilities. Whether you want to create new warmth with a fire pit or new light with a solar energy skylight, your home can have light or extreme changes that will change your home's warranty, insurance plan and security inclusions. These are just some of the things that you have to consider when looking at all of the projects with your home's remodel. You can find all sorts of interesting designs and plans through Remodeling Central to handle all of your unique projects.

Door Repair

As you may have already realized, doors are one of the focal points of your home because they allow for entry and exiting from the property. As a result, if you have banged up or unattractive doors, everyone is going to notice due to the amount of traffic this area of your home will always receive. When you are remodeling, it’s important not to overlook the possibility of repairing or replacing your doors. Although it seems like a subtle change, this is an upgrade which can truly change the value of your home and also add to the overall appeal of the other changes that you have made to the structure of your home and its decor.


Upgrading and replacing your doors is one of the best things you can do when you are remodeling your home to try to improve the value of it for resale in the future. If you are dealing with doors outside around your property, then you must realize that the changes you will be making will ultimately be adding to the curb appeal of your home in the long run. As a result, you will want to repair any possible damage or issues that may be present with your existing doors or completely replace them in order to further improve the appeal and value of your home. Your contractor can provide you with many examples and suggestions of options which may fit in well with the new style of your remodeled home. Keep in mind that you don’t always have to replace the door -- if the door itself is in good condition, you may want to consider other options such as painting or refinishing it.


Door repair is typically inexpensive, though it varies on the type of door that you may choose or the repairs that you may be making. Typically you can expect to spend over $1000 for door projects in your home. Although these figures are within the typical range for this project, it is always recommended to get in contact with a professional in your area in order to find out the exact cost based on your project. It’s important to remember that prices and estimated costs will vary depending on the region you are located in and also the service itself. In most circumstances, professional services will be able to provide you with a generalized estimate of the costs associated with your goals. In some cases, it may be possible to save money if the individual is able to handle the task on their own as a DIY project, though the success of the results greatly depend on the skills of the individual.
