2nd Story Renovation in Hyattsville, Maryland

Here are a few photos of progress for a remodeling project that adds two bedrooms, a bath and den, plus storage on the 2nd floor. The photography for the project will be updated after it's completed. These are simple shots taken with a phone. Color on the walls gives a better feel for the space. The tile is a classic and clean choice for this home.

Skill Level

 *Easy

**Moderate

***Seek Professional Help

 

  1. *Winterize hose bibs by turning off the valve for each. Open each hose bib, from the exterior, just enough to drain water.
  2. **Clear gutters to reduce icicle formation.
  3. *Close down crawl space vents to reduce cold air flow.
  4. ***Consider increasing floor insulation value. R19 is building code requirement. R30 keeps floors feeling cozier.
  5. **Check your attic's ventilation. Make sure your soffit vents are clear. This also reduces icicle formation and damaging, costly ice damming.
  6. *Check for drafts around entry doors. Feel a draft? Adjust door threshold or add weather stripping.
  7. ***Get your chimney professionally cleaned.
  8. ***Have your gas fireplace serviced. Remember to use cleaners for the glass recommended by the manufacturer.
  9. *Replace HVAC return air filters.
  10. *Test and/or replace batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

    Project: Front porch

    We hired Villa Builders after a disastrous experience with another builder. We needed a new builder to complete our project under a new permit, as well as participate in the repairs that were left form the previous builder. Villa was extremely professional in their comments regarding the work of the previous builder despite our rantings or what Jeff may actually have been thinking. Our front porch is beautiful-incredible workmanship and details. We look forward to having Villa Builders complete our repairs and put their finishing touch on our home. I would highly recommend Villa.
