When you’re planning a home-improvement project—especially for first-time or fairly new DIYers—it’s easy to find yourself feeling overwhelmed with questions and concerns.
But with all of these questions running through your head, rest assured that you can find the answers to all of them from one trusted resource: FL Home Supply. Our team is here to provide you with helpful information for whatever uncertainties your project brings about.
Here are the answers to a few of our most frequently asked questions:
- What are the best products (and brands) to purchase for my project?
No matter what you’re upgrading, replacing or building, every home-improvement project should be an investment. That’s why purchasing a product from a well-established manufacturer is essential. If you’re unsure of what products to choose, take a look through our online store for an assortment of options, including home doors, windows, roofing, insulation, lumber and much more.
- What kind of hardware/materials will I need to complete it?
Many manufacturers provide step-by-step guides for completing a product installation, which should outline all the hardware, tools and materials needed. However, if you’re unsure of where to purchase these items or if you need to replace them, visit our selection of hardware, lumber or masonry pages for some of FL Home Supply’s available items for purchase.
- Will I need a permit? If so, which one and how do I obtain it?
If you’re doing a project that directly affects the envelope of your home, you’ll likely need to have a permit for it. For Florida residents, visit MyFloridaPermits.com to find the one that’s applicable to your installation. Otherwise, check with your area’s official building codes and their associated permits online.
- How do I know how much my project will cost?
Not only can the experts at FL Home Supply help you calculate your budget for your project, but they can even help you prepare for hidden costs that come up along the way as well. Review our blog article—The Hidden Costs of Your Next Project—for more information.
- What happens if it ends up that I can’t complete the project myself?
You may come to find that your home-improvement project requires more manpower, skills or time than you originally anticipated. If this is the case, be prepared to hire a professional. If you’re unsure of who to hire, contact our team at FL Home Supply and we’ll be glad to get you the help you need.
