Customer Referrals

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

Since we began our company more than 20 years ago, we’ve been the appreciative recipients of many referrals from our customers. We’re delighted that our clients are contented with our work and grateful that they trust us enough to share our name with their closest friends, family and neighbors.

When we meet with clients, we share how much we enjoy helping homeowners and that we’d like to offer our services to their contacts. We ask them to share our name with their friends and promise to protect their reputation by responding in a timely and clear manner to those they send our way.

We’d like to make the same offer to your contacts: if you know anyone who needs an experienced home improvement company for their remodeling and handyman projects, have them contact me today at (301) 946-2356 or dmerrick@mdbi.us. I’m happy to speak with them about their needs.

Ideas for Spring Remodeling Projects

Friday, March 11th, 2011

It’s that time of year again: the warm weather is giving the DC metro residents the urge to do more around their homes and in their neighborhoods. If you’ve got the itch to make changes to your house, take a look at this short list of spring remodeling projects that can bring comfort and provide enjoyment to you and your family:

Improve Your Entryway and Windows – Adding a new door and windows can improve a tired facade (and entice future buyers if you’re selling your home). By installing ENERY STAR rated windows, you can gain as much as a 30 percent reduction in energy use and boost curb appeal.

Add Insulation – Spring and summer can bring their own brand of heat to the DC region and better insulation keeps more of your cooled air inside. And, once the winter cold returns, more heat will stay inside, too.

Fix Your Floors – Over time, floors can take a beating from human and pet traffic. Consider new types of flooring for one room or several, which can add a whole new look and feel to your spaces.

Show Your Kitchen Some Love – There are reasons why everyone congregates in the kitchen – it’s the home of two life sources (food and water) and it’s just fun to be there. If your kitchen isn’t looking or feeling its best, consider a partial or complete renovation.

Give Your Bathroom a Makeover – Tired of the tile and other outdated features in the bathroom? There are a variety of ways – from fixture replacements to more extensive remodeling – to improve this all important place in your home.

Don’t Forget the Exterior of Your Home – Winter weather can be hard on the exterior of your home. Make sure the outside is in good condition, not just for the aesthetic benefits, but also to maintain structural integrity.

As always, if you have any questions, comments or just want to say hello, contact me at (301) 946-2356 or dmerrick@mdbi.us.
