Home Renovation News for the Holidays

You’ve probably realized a few things about the Taylor Fencing team at this point. You’ve probably put two and two together just how passionate we are about the work that we do. You’ve probably figured out that our number one asset will always be our customers and that we really look at you as members of our extended family. This should be demonstrated from our first conversations even beyond the completion of any work. And just one small facet of that is this blog – our forum to share what’s going on in the world around us and hopefully inspire and inform you through all of your home renovation projects. We’re not just talking fences here, although we’re sure you’ve noticed just how extensive and impressive our premium fence and gate installations are. Nope, it doesn’t stop there. And today, we’re offering another volume of one of our favourite selections on the blog – a look at the best of the internet for the last month. Read on for interesting, informative, engaging and entertaining home renovation news updates.

7 Ways to Finance Your Investment Home Renovation

Our first find represents a popular theme on the World Wide Web these days – how the heck are you going to pay for these projects and renovations? This can be the biggest deterrent from having our prospective customers kick off any work (fencing-related or not) because they believe that they won’t be able to afford it. It’s also the biggest misconception as more and more options are available to you. There are loans to get the work done in a timely period, there are financing plans to help you along the way, and there are an abundance of calculators and resources that can help explain exactly how much money you need to set aside to get the job done right.

Abington Veteran Receives Home Renovation

We always aim to seek out the stories that paint our industry, our teammates and our competitors in the best light possible. It’s so invigorating for us, especially during this time of year, to shed a light when philanthropic work is done. It’s not even philanthropic work, it’s about showing individuals and teams who are doing the right thing for the right reasons. So, this next article holds a special place in our heart, highlighting a company that donated a home renovation for someone in need. That’s a big deal, and the recipient not only deserved it, but was very grateful for it. It’s a special reminder to us on the Taylor Fencing team and hopefully the valued customers in our community that when we give back, or pay it forward, it can be the most rewarding money that you ever spend.

Another area that always inspires us to continuing to research examples of really well-done architecture. As we always aim to keep a pulse on the materials, the processes and the products that can contribute to our arsenal of best-in-class fence and gate installations, we can never be complacent. We have to always find inspiration in the most creative of places. Sometimes they’re really obvious, like when we make a regular habit of attending tradeshows and industry events, or when we scan industry publications like it’s our job (because it is). But with the dawn of the information age, we have seen an influx of even more platforms to get springboard our creativity and drive the conversations which make our business as successful as it is. So, this article takes a look at those home renovations and projects that may just inspire you to say, “yes” and make your next dream a reality. You can learn more about this here.

We’re just really in a mood today. One of creativity, doing the right thing, and giving back. So, when we found this article, we knew that it needed to be shared with you.

In fact, try not to do that or you may just get in big trouble. There are processes and resources no matter where you live that can come and pick up old materials and donate them the right places. That’s the point of this article, providing best practices so that your old materials are going to the right place and your new materials will be properly celebrated. Bonus when we saw the title of this post? You may just be able to make money if you take advantage of the information shared in this article. You can learn more about this here.

Mandy Moore Home Renovation

And it never hurts during the festive season to take a page out of the celebrity playbook. Just remember that your budget may not be the same scope and scale. This month, we’re listening to advice provided by music and screen sensation, Mandy Moore. Highlights? According to Moore, the 70s are here to stay and are influencing home renovations more and more. Isn’t it funny that we spend decades updating our home designs only to revert to what was popular 40 years ago? The takeaway there is that design is cyclical as are most trends. Our other favourite takeaways include the recommendation of adding texture to your walls, look at built-in furniture and keep the kitchen cabinets low. The last may surprise you the most but Moore makes a mean argument for it, no matter what your architectural style preference is. You can learn more about this here.
