3 Benefits of Pet Friendly Home Remodeling in Scottsdale

pet friendly home remodeling in scottsdaleOur furry friends are family members in most Scottsdale homes. With this being a statement of fact for many folks living in the Phoenix Valley, it would seem logical that we’d find ways of incorporating their needs into the home remodeling projects we undertake – right? Fortunately, professional contractors are starting to see how important is it to consider pet friendly home remodeling in Scottsdale in all of their home improvement projects.

Here are three reasons why you might want to consider speaking with a professional remodeling contractor about integrating a few pet friendly upgrades at home.

First – Pet Grooming or Bathing Areas Make Life Easier on the Homeowner

How often does it happen when your dog or cat is ultra-excited about heading into the bathtub? Most of the time, pets really dislike the bath or grooming entirely. However, one of the growing trends in many home remodeling projects is adding a pet grooming and bathing area either inside the home or in the back yard. This can help homeowners in many ways including:

  • Keeping all pet grooming supplies in a designated area; making them easy to find and use when you need them.
  • Giving your pet their own bathtub – keeping your human tubs cleaner
  • Allows you to bathe and dry your pets in an area away from furniture that can get wet thanks to the wet puppy or kitty trying to dry off.

Second – Adding Pet Indoor / Outdoor Access Doors Make Life Easy – Especially at 3 am

If you’re like most pet owners, you understand how frustrating it can be to wake up in the early AM hours to take your pet outside to go to take care of nature. This is why several homeowners have contacted local home remodeling contractors in Scottsdale about installing indoor / outdoor access doors for pets. Not all pets are equally sized – and a reality of life is that several ‘store bought’ pet doors are either too small or too big for some of our pets. Plus, installing these items inside our existing doors or walls can be challenging for many homeowners.

A great solution to this common problem is to have these doors added while you’re having the home remodeled anyways. Not only will this allow pets to head outdoors when they need to – but if they want to access the pet play area outside, they have the freedom of doing so without needing your help.

Third – Reduce Wear & Tear with Pet-Proof Flooring

According to many home remodeling experts, a leading cause of having to replace carpet or flooring is due to the punishment that our pets place on flooring. Whether it’s their claws or their tendency of having nature call at the most inappropriate time, most homeowners understand that pets and indoor flooring don’t typically get along. However, there are new pet-proof flooring products that are designed to withstand the abuse and other accidents that pets typically cause when they live indoors. Professional pet friendly home remodeling contractors in Scottsdale can give you all the information you’ve ever wanted to know about these new products; including styles, colors and installation costs – so you can add it to your home remodeling project.
