Which Home Improvement Project Will You Tackle First in 2018?

With 2017 quickly coming to an end, it won’t be long before your full attention is on the new year. For many, this means a focus on a variety of home improvement projects.

This leads to an important question: which home improvement project will you tackle first in 2018? While there is no right or wrong answer, here are some tips for pointing yourself in the right direction:

·      Start with your top priority. For example, if your roof is long overdue for replacement, you don’t want to put this off any longer. With a priority list in hand, it’s much easier to make a decision on what to do first.

·      Review your budget. It’s safe to assume that 2018 will bring a few changes to your budget. Do you know which projects you can afford to take on right away? Do you know which ones will have to wait until later in the year?

·      Know what type of help you require. There’s a big difference between a DIY project and one that calls for a professional. If you don’t want to get your hands dirty or are concerned that you’ll make a costly error, it’s always best to rely on a professional to complete your project.

So, there you have it. These are the types of details that will help you decide which home improvement project to tackle first in 2018.

Customer Reviews

"Excellent service. Any question I had was addressed in a friendly yet professional manner. I have used Pond before for replacement windows and siding and most recently for new roofing. I highly recommend them for their responsiveness and the high quality of their work."

- Nancy P.

"Pond Roofing was very responsive and knowledgeable about the condition of our roof. They delivered before the expected date and their work was impeccable. I cannot recommend working with Shanti enough."

- Erin M.

"Easy communication with tons of photos and excellent job! Pond Roofing even came back to replace the color of the shingles to our satisfaction. The property was in McLean and they made me look great since my landlord client was very impressed. The swag cookies to our tenants was an added bonus. :-) Thanks so much!"

Laura M.

"Very fast initial response time and great customer service. Repair work was done (by prearrangement) while we had to be out of town and it looks great now that we are back. We have used Pond before and would call them first if we need roofing work in the future. Thanks!"

Scott C.

"Quality and Integrity. Terrific job on a roof repair. Called for a minor fix which was expertly accomplished. Patrick performed a complete inspection, ensuring no other damage or work needed. Perfect!"

Brian N.

"Great communication, very professional repair crew. We have a new construction house that had some issues with vent seals after 10yrs and Pond fixed 8 different areas in one day--very happy with the work."

- Ryan H.

"I recently hired Pond Roofing to check out a leak. They did a great job coming in on time and to troubleshoot the issue. Their pricing was competitive and overall service was excellent. I’m very happy with their work."
