  HOUSTON -- Houston homeowners are once again spending money to upgrade: not by buying bigger, new homes, but by remodeling what they have. "I'm seeing a whole lot more activity," said Fred Spaulding of Quality Home Improvements. Remodelers like him said that as the economy tanked in 2008, so did home remodeling. Now, home improvement is back. But homeowners aren't necessarily doing it to sell their homes for a big profit, they're staying put. "There's a lot of people improving their homes to stay in place," said Robert Birner of Amazing Siding. With homes appreciating more slowly, or even losing value, and with mortgages harder to get, the idea of living for just a few years in a home then selling and buying something better may no longer be so easy. The alternative is to fix up what ...

I had a nice conversation this morning with Kevin Clark at First American Title in Kingwood.  This is an enjoyable place for a closing since everyone there is helpful & pleasant.  And they are dedicated to making closings move along smoothly.  Kevin & I were talking about kids & school experiences.  We reminisced about Kindergarten & could both remember our Kindergarten teacher's name.  As we continued the trip down memory lane, we agreed that teachers really can make an impression on our lives.  One thing Kevin shared with me was a statement that has stuck with him through the years.  It seems that his fifth grade science teacher said, "No students ever come back to thank me."  This particular teacher was well-liked & respected, so that statement really resonated with Kevin.  He knew t...

My contractor friends, family, and friends.  April 22, 2010, Earth Day, was D-Day on the enforcement of the EPA Lead, Remodel, Paint, designed to protect you from lead poisoning.    I’m surprised that so many contractors still don’t know about this law.  It deals with homes built prior to 1978.  You MUST test the painted surface for lead if you are going to disturb over a total of six square on the interior of a home or twenty square foot on the exterior.  This not only applies to remodelers, but also to window installers, siding installers, plumbers, electricians, HVAC technicians, any trade that disturbs the painted surfaces in pre-1978 homes. The main problem is not the protection of children or the elderly, its that the public doesn’t know about it, many trades people, who don’t bel...

The Kingwood Dog Park needs your help.  They are having a clean up day at the park on Saturday, April 10 from 9 AM to 1 PM.  Any help you can provide with time or tools would be very much appreciated.  The plan is to concentrate on filling holes, leveling and laying out a pathway with designated pool areas.  The tools needed are shovels, wheelbarrows & chainsaws.  And if you have any timber that could be used as edging for crushed granite - they'd love that donation!   The Kingwood Dog Park is located at 619 Lakeville Drive, just off Russell Palmer Drive & next door to Kingwood Kennels.  The park is maintained & improved by The Kingwood Dog Park Association.  And The Kingwood Dog Park Association is run entirely by volunteers & funded through individual donations & generous sponsors.   ...

 Can you provide us with references for your past clients? Absolutely! All proposals presented by a reputable contractor should provide references. One of the most common reasons the public gets "burned" on a contracted project is that they either didn't get references or didn't check on the references that were given.Quality Home Improvements provides a list of references of past clients who have had similar work done at their homes. Please, before you accept any proposal for work to be done, call some or all of the references provided. Not only ask them about their experience with the contractor (timeliness, cleanliness, quality of work, communications, easy to get along with, etc) but also how they learned of the contractor in question. If they were referred, ask if you could call th...

A group of Interior Design students at Lone Star College-Kingwood recently judged a Houston competition for Contractor of the Year.  The local chapter of the National Association of Remodeling Industry (NARI) sponsored the competition. Local businessman Fred Spaulding of Quality Home Improvements invited the students in Professor Susan Ouren's residential design class to be the judges of the competition.  "These students are professionals.  They've learned what works and what to look for," said Spaulding. Each of the 18 entries was judged individually by three students.  Some of the criteria the students used to judge the entries included: did the remodel meet the needs of the client; was the project properly laid out; and the difficulty of the project. Professor Ouren says, "What I app...
