Hire A Professional For Your Home’s Renovations

Hire A Professional For Your Home’s RenovationsThere are a lot of “Do It Yourselfers” out there who are up for taking on most projects with a do or die attitude, and then there are those of us who need some outside help when it comes to home renovation projects; big or small.

Unless you designed your home, there is always something about your house that you would like to change or add. Your project list could be endless, from replacing the tile in the bathroom to a complete kitchen overhaul. Before jumping in head first on a home renovation project, there are plenty of things to think about and plan for – from your budget to the level of difficulty.

Why Hire A Professional

Unless you are a contractor, there is a good chance you will need some professional advice at some point, plus there are a lot of questions you need to ask yourself if you plan to do any of the work on your own.


How motivated are you to see the entire project through from start to finish without giving up?

Plenty of people start a project and then months, even years, later there is still some unfinished business. Are you going to look back later and think to yourself, if you just hired a professional this renovation would all the done and over with? Probably…


Labor costs are always a concern. We think that not only can we find a better deal on supplies and fixtures, but sometimes we watch a YouTube video and instantly think “Oh I can do that!” While that is the feeling at the start of the renovation process, there are plenty of times when you create more work and spend more money on unseen variables, putting your project cost up there with the amount you would have spent on a pro.

At Merle Builders, we treat your projects like our project with respect and dedication.

Contact us today and we will gladly answer any questions you may have and we will guide you through the process of designing a space that fits your lifestyle, choosing the materials and making sure the project stays on time and on budget.

Invest in Your Home – Renovate!

Invest in Your Home – Renovate!Renovating any part of your home can seem like an immense project to take on, especially if it is going to be expensive. However, patchwork for the most part has a time limit and letting something continue to deteriorate can lead to more issue with your home.

The truth is renovations will not only save you from a headache later on, but it will actually end up paying you back in a big way.

Don’t Delay, Fix It Today!


Putting in a new garage door is a great way to add curb appeal to your home and the normal price for it very reasonable. Fixing your exterior siding is another great renovation as it will make your home a new, fresh look. It’s such an awesome move as it will return about 87 percent back on the total project costs.

When it comes to the kitchen, you don’t need to fix everything in it. Simple upgrades to counters, cabinets and appliances will give a lot back to you in terms of return on the investment. One over looked renovation is new windows for your home. Installing these will help lower your heating and cooling bills, which will in the end save you quite a bit of money.

Speaking of the weather, a backup generator is also a great addition to any home as its benefits will outweigh the money you spend to obtain it.

Merle Builders believes in investing in your home and will take on any renovation you decide you want for your home. We treat each project as if we were working on our own home to make sure you get the best product possible. For more on our services or to discuss a renovation project, contact us today!

Custom Built Gazebo For Your Backyard

Custom Built Gazebo For Your BackyardYou’ve just finished decorating or updating the inside of your beautiful home; now it’s time to take a look out back!

Many people waste their perfectly lovely outdoor living spaces, and only use them for graduation parties or planting a miniature herb garden. Well, the weather is nice: why not take advantage of this nature-filled second living room?

Here at Merle Builders, we know that there are a lot of great ways to spruce up your backyard and make it something really beautiful and impressive, something you love to show off to your guests or enjoy on your own! One of our favorite less-invasive options is a custom gazebo.

Unlike built-in patios, or complicated deck additions, a custom-built gazebo is an easy way to renovate your backyard without too much digging, prep work, and re-sodding. If you’re working with a blank canvas, a gazebo, built to your custom specifications, can create a visual focal point, create natural flowerbeds, give your sun-soaked yard a much-needed shady spot to sit and relax, and become the heart of your backyard living space.

Our custom gazebos can be built to exactly your taste, in terms of style and design, size, and wood type. If you want to go for a classic feel, try a white washed gazebo with lots of lattice and detailed columns. If your style is more modern, go for a darker wood and cleaner, simpler lines that speak not only to functionality, but tasteful design.

If you’d like to order your custom gazebo, or hear our other suggestions about how to spruce up a tired old lawn, contact us today!

Modernize Your Bathroom

For many people, their bathroom might not be high up on their list of rooms in their house they are looking to renovate. However, it is always important to reinvest in your home so no room can be neglected in the renovation process.

It is also a great idea if you are planning on selling it at some point to give your bathroom a little facelift. When you do it is important you install parts that will not only benefit the house, but make it appealing as well.

Modernize Your Bathroom

Make Your Bathroom Stand Out

A rainfall shower is a very popular new shower head being installed in most bathrooms today. It not only looks cool but is very unique as the water comes down like an actual rain is coming down in your shower. This is perfect for anyone who enjoys a lower pressure when bathing.

Another great idea is to fix the bathroom counter-tops with an aesthetically pleasing and strong material like marble. Along with that a new toilet as well as some new lighting would go a long way.

This would raise the resale value of your home as well as prevent any potential future issues for you and your family.
