Mills Roofing
I am going write a short introduction. Ricky Mills of "Mills Roofing and Home Contractor" IS the business to hire for ALL of your exterior needs including vinyl siding and window replacements. I PROMISE!!! I am a perfectionist and Ricky Mills exceeded all of my expectations. I have had multiple contractors/construction crews at my house over the years and NONE have ever paid attention to details or cared about the quality of their work like Ricky. He is not just a construction worker, or contractor...HE IS A CRAFTSMAN!!! Please refer to the last two paragraphs for a quick synopsis.During June, 2016 I noticed several shingles of our roof were missing. I knew that some of the exterior wood of our house was rotten. I needed three windows installed (one is a custom, triangular window 4'6" x 6'6"). I called eight roof/home contracting businesses. I was not looking for the cheapest contractor nor the fastest. I was looking for the business that would do the job properly.Ricky Mills of "Mills Roofing and Home Contractor", was the second business that came to my house. I do not trust contractors at all, yet I had an instant feeling of trust with him. After I interviewed the other six contractors, I gave Ricky the job. Thank Goodness I did!!! I had one contractor tell me he was the only one who could get a particular brand of roof shingles because he ordered so much of it. That was a lie! Ricky could have installed them at the same cost. I had two other contractors come over who did not even get on my roof to look at it...what?Within two weeks he had a team here, and within 2 days our new roof was installed. All materials were hauled away. He needed 6 extra pieces of plywood and he did not charge me more (like other companies said they would). Before and during roof replacement, he found many issues that he pointed out to me. The siding against the roof was rotten; the chimney was so rotten that moss was growing on it; and one of our exterior wood walls was literally falling down. After we fixed one problem, we found another. And after I watched him fix several issues, I knew he had the skills to fix anything.I re-hired Ricky Mills in November to tear down our wood decking to install Trex, and to replace a metal ceiling and fan for our screened in porch. He performed this work, while we were out of town. In the end he replaced my roof, rebuilt several exterior walls, re-insulated and rebuilt internal wall supports, replaced all the gutters, rebuilt the chimney, removed our old custom-made triangular window, and ordered/installed a new one, put two new windows in a spot where a door was, installed vinyl siding, wrapped the fascia on our roof line, tore down wood decking and installed Trex decking, and tore down the metal ceiling of our screened in porch and installed a new one including an exterior fan He did things I did not ask him to do...little details to make the house look better (for example, he wrapped a piece of wood in the back of our house with the same metal he used for the fascia....he could have just had me caulk the joints and paint it).I will emphasize that I was looking for the "guy/team" who would do the job CORRECTLY, not the cheapest, nor the fastest....I just wanted the job done right! I hired the man who added his own creativity to our house so that it looks better...he did not charge me more for his creative touch, yet it took more time and looks phenomenal. I paid Ricky Mills more than his invoices because I did not feel he was charging enough. His craftsmanship and creativity are UNBELIEVABLE! I will NEVER hire anyone else! Even my husband, who built our house, was stunned at the work Ricky, and his team performed. My husband said "Wow, he is a craftsman. Our house looks like a 4-star restaurant compared to a Taco Bell" And, as a side note...we went from about 1000 stink bugs last year to about five this year. Hire him...he is well worth it!!!!

Tips & Advices
According to experts a bathroom remodel might not recoup return on the original investment. However, it is one of the key renovations that can make potential buyers want to make an offer…or not. Homebuyers look for bathrooms with updated plumbing, convenient layout, and a pleasant aesthetic. That said, in older houses, where bedrooms far outnumber bathrooms, it’s advised to spend the money on a bathroom addition instead of gut-renovating the original bathroom.
Yes, bathroom remodeling contractors often offer financing. Many homeowners prefer to refinance or take out a home equity line of credit. But others will see if the contractor can connect them with a lender who will set up some other type of loan. There are many types of loans available: secured and unsecured, personal, and those backed by the Federal Housing Administration.
The price range for toilets varies from $200 into the many thousands because of variables like best-flushing performance (single vs. dual flush), self-cleaning capabilities, design (one- or two-piece), and special features, like heated seats. Cosmetic elements, such as the color and the material of the toilet, also factor into the cost. Experts agree that the most expensive toilets do not necessarily function the best.
Heated bathroom floors are a popular way to warm up typically cold tile floors and keep people comfortable in their bathrooms, even when it’s chilly outside. The proper term is “radiant heat,” and it describes various methods of heating from under the floors. The least expensive method, which is popular for small spaces, uses an electric mat. Larger spaces might have electric heated coil systems installed under the tile, or hydronic systems where heated water is run through pipes below the flooring.
A bathroom renovation usually takes two to three weeks, if it’s a relatively small and straightforward job. Expect larger or more complicated remodels to last five to six  weeks--not including any delays due to special material or permits. If you’re doing a gut renovation, which includes permits, specially ordered materials, and possibly up to a dozen different tradespeople, you should realistically expect it to take  three to five  months to complete.
