GHBA Remodelers Council: Selling or staying: Home renovation projects require careful attention


Members of the Remodelers Council of the Greater Houston Builders Association said that while homeowners often have big visions for renovation projects, a look at the big picture followed by practical steps to achieve those goals can make all the difference. New countertops and fresh paint make a big difference in both kitchen and bath spaces, Pellegrin said, and suggested updating the bath with an upscale shower and replacing worn, dated fixtures to give the area a modern look and feel, considered a plus by home buyers. Replacing a home's windows with energy-efficient designs benefit not only homeowners who plan to stay in the house, but become a selling point to interested buyers, Pellegrin said. Serving as a resource for both homeowners and industry professionals, members include contractors, designers, building suppliers and other professionals.For information about the Remodelers Council of the GHBA, call 281-970-8970 or visit
