Blackdog Design/Build/Remodel Latest Podcasts

Home Design & Remodeling in Salem & Amherst, NH

Every homeowner has some fears about the remodeling industry. Just about every homeowner considering a remodeling project is nervous. They hear horror stories from their neighbors and friends about damage to homes, a contractor taking a deposit and never showing up, and even being sued by injured employees! That, in conjunction with the multitude of bad reviews on websites like Yelp and Google, make the words “scary story” and “remodeling” practically synonymous. It does not have to be like this—education is the key to a great remodeling experience!

Each week, join Dave and Brenda Bryan, veterans of the industry and owners of the successful and highly respected design/build remodeling company Blackdog Design/Build/Remodel, as they guide you through what you need to know when pulling together a remodeling project.

Whether you want to learn about how to select the right project, or what flooring works best in a kitchen, or how you choose what contractor to work with, or have absolutely no idea where to start, this is the podcast for you. It will be fun and informative, and will save you time and money!
