Excerpt: A friend of mine recently completed a home remodel in upstate New York.  I was fascinated to hear about the adventure that led to the beautiful transformation of her home!  I couldn’t help but think to myself that her experience was so much like those of our customers at Jim Hicks Home Improvements here in Virginia.  I’m sure a potential client in Yorktown who is thinking about remodeling their home, or someone in Virginia Beach who would like a new bathroom, or maybe a homeowner I recently met with in Newport News who is dreaming of a new kitchen remodel, would…

Excerpt: Hiring a contractor for a home improvement project in Virginia Beach doesn’t have to be an exercise in pain and frustration. Unfortunately for many homeowners, it is just that.

Excerpt: An Aurora Borealis each morning?  In Virginia Beach? Moving Color Tiles have introduced  4 x 4 glass tiles that appear black at room temperature, but move through the color spectrum as the temperature of the water in the shower hitting them changes. The Northern Lights Tile line  uses  temperature to create a sensation of moving colors.  When warm water or radiant heat is applied to the amazing shower tiles, you see quite a range of color, much like the “mood rings” of the 70’s. This would be a fun addition to any bathroom remodel for those that are feeling like a Northern adventure without leaving…
