When it comes to major home renovations, what improvements/fixes produce the best ROI?
I always refer clients to Remodeling Magazine Price Value Ratio. If you go to Remodeling Magazine it will pop right up. It is the bible of the industry.
I have a client that would like to frame, insulate & drywall over a exterior door in her kitchen. The home is in DC are there any code issues or permits req?
yes I would be concerned about the egress issue (or the ways in which you can exit the home). I would always check with the building department.
