My parents had their bathroom remodeled over the summer, and for some dumb reason, I didn’t think to blog about it until now. I mean, it was done by the local Buckel Remodeling -which, full disclosure, is my boyfriend’s dad.
There are two types of radiant flooring, electric and hydronic (water). Electric mats are easier and less expensive to install because you don’t need a separate system to run the heat, they can run off your home’s electrical system. Hydronic systems need a separate power source, like a heat pump to run the water through the pipes. A hydronic system is more expensive to install, but in the long run, it is more affordable to operate.
On a daily basis, your home’s bathroom or bathrooms see the most water use, putting it and its underlying features at greater risk for water damage. When remodeling the bathroom, prevent structural damage and mold problems by making sure it’s waterproof. This can mean making sure your contractor uses tile-backing waterproof drywall (also known as green board) where possible, completely seals the floor and shower surround and applies sufficient waterproof caulk around tubs, shower pans and shower fixtures. Because grout is porous, make sure the contractor seals that, too.
Some homeowners appreciate the space and layout that already exists in their current bath, but desire more storage or a modern look that will better suit their needs and also enhance their Long Island, NY, home’s overall re-sale value. Other times, the bathroom that needs the renovation is the only bathroom in the home. That’s why Alure Home Improvements has introduced our EXTREME 5-Day Bathroom program.
