It is often said that “your home is your castle”. Every homeowner can attest to this belief, but when your castle is being remodeled, it can feel like your beloved kingdom is under attack. Walls suddenly disappear, strange people making loud noises and your sacred room becomes unrecognizable as it just disappeared. A plumber calls for the fourth time to say he can’t make it and your contractor casually informs you that you’re $5,000 over budget.

A sad feeling of despair descends upon your castle – which now feels more like a dark dungeon of misery. You want to throw in the towel, cry endlessly and head for a frappuccino and a massage. According to Michael Jones, an NYC therapist, these feelings are understandable and normal. “Anger is a natural reaction, managing it is the key in any situation” he explains. Many of the team at have been in your shoes, felt that frustration and learned the hard way! But rest assured – there are solutions – trust Torre.

No Pain – No Gain

Unfortunately its often true when you remodel, however that pain can be dramatically reduced by following some simple steps and guidelines. Planning is the key – “protect early and protect everything” says Caroline Devino, who recently upgraded her New England colonial outside Danbury from 2000 sq ft to 3000 sq ft.

Outside Matters!

Catch dirt and debris before it even enters the home. Anti-slipper runners are great for pathways and steps. They can provide extra grip and reduce dirt from attaching to shoes & boots. Adhesive mats are a must for construction, large or small. These mats, often know as ‘sticky mats’ catch dirt from the soles of shoes and boots – eliminating dirt before it enters the house.
