What to Expect During Rehabilitation
Realistic Expectations - if it's broken depending on the item, we will repair or replace it (example: your dishwasher does not work, we can replace it). If your kitchen countertop is in disrepair, we can replace it with a similar countertop. We cannot upgrade a laminate countertop to a granite countertop. We replace like-with-like.
Unrealistic Expectations - pools, hot tubs, installation of a deck, installation of hardwood floors where carpet currently exists, converting a garage into a habitable space, or room additions.
