I can answer virtually any question about residential construction and remodeling, but I PREFER and have special interest and expertise in the following areas: Exterior design, cost vs. value, room additions, low-maintenance materials, sunrooms, conservatories, patio design, patio covers & shade structures, replacement doors & windows, glass & glazing technology, roofing, non-conventional construction, structurally-insulated panels, siding, insulation, sealants, membranes, decking, metal & composite framing materials, skylights, pool & spa enclosures, architectural drawings, DIY planning & installation tips, and green building technologies, installations, and materials as they relate to home improvements and additions. Additionally, I am particularly interested in helping homeowners learn how to determine the value and/or return on investment of particular projects, choose reliable contractors and gain “insider” information about to accurately compare materials, estimates, warranties and otherwise make good decisions about improving their homes. I also have above average (not quite expert) knowledge and can answer general questions about masonry, electrical, mechanical, foundations and plumbing, but please try to find an expert who is THE most suited for your particular question if possible.
