New options for Langley homeowners planning a renovation

There’s never a bad time to add value to your home.

From more space, to a better-functioning kitchen to a new floor suited to your family’s lifestyle, the right renovation will enhance your enjoyment of your home today, and its longstanding value down the road.

“What is the right renovation? It’s the one that uses quality materials and workmanship to improve the function and design of your home,” explains Stephen Tomes, a licensed contractor and owner of Kingsmere Construction and New Trendz Flooring and More in Langley.

“Often, that means modernizing outdated floorplan or features to suit your family’s needs. At the same time, you’re also building value in your home – something you’ll benefit from when the time is right to move to something bigger or downsize,” Tomes notes. “The wrong thing to do is to devalue your home, by doing nothing but letting it age.”

Of course, Tomes recognizes that everything from supply chain challenges to demand have affected renovation costs. It’s why his longstanding connections across Canada have rewarded homeowners with some innovative and cost-effective products that can add value to their homes.

Extensive industry knowledge and expertise that includes serving as a director of the Lower Mainland Better Business Bureau, volunteering with the Home Inspection Association of BC and working on the Province’s energy efficiency-focused BC Step Code, ensures confidence that those innovations are backed with quality.

  1. CRAFT Floors – This sustainability-driven Canadian company offers hardwood products in everything from hickory and white oak to black walnut and reclaimed pine. “Now we can offer a good-quality hardwood floor that’s also more affordable,” Tomes says. Learn more at the New Trendz showroom, where he’s built a whole new display room to showcase the product.
  2. Innovative under-floor heating Traditional in-floor radiant heat is limited in its applications, but Trendz shares a BC Building Code- and CSA-approved product that works with everything from luxury vinyl plank to laminate to carpet. “They use it a lot in Sweden – you can set the temperature and leave, and when you come back, you have nice, even heat, without cold and hot spots,” Tomes says. Learn more in the Trendz showroom.
  3. Budget-friendly custom kitchen cabinets – These solid wood cabinets offer the strength, durability and versatility of custom cabinetry, but for a traditional custom kitchen priced around $50,000, these cabinets might put the bill closer to $30,000. The soon-to-be updated New Trendz website will even let you input your own measurements, allowing those outside the Lower Mainland to order from the comfort of home.
