Does Getting 3 Bids Truly Work?

When having work done to your home, it’s a common knowledge to get 3 bids for any remodeling or construction project. This means that 3 different contractors are going to give you an idea of the project they’d like to complete for you, and the cost of the project.

In the case that the project is a clear-cut request, we at Creative Spaces agree. However, we’ve found with our clients, the 3-bid rule doesn’t quite hold up. Your Project

We call ourselves renovation therapists for a reason and while we may not have a chair for you to lie down in at our office, our people are ready to listen and ready to get to work.

Fall Means Fertilization

There was some really lovely weather here this past week. The humidity lifted and we were all able to enjoy a few sunny, mild days. The sun set earlier every day and the kids went back to school. It’s time to pack away those wide-brimmed hats and beach towels, and prepare our homes for fall. For homeowners fall means a little more than pumpkins and witches. The coming of fall also means that it’s time to fertilize our lawns. We know that fertilizing now will strengthen our plants’ and lawns’ roots, giving them a strong base to grow and thrive
