As a Field Sales Manager for Sears Home Improvements, Jim Gorski provides in-home consultations for homeowners interested in updating their homes in the areas of Kitchens, Bathrooms, Heating and Air Conditioning, Flooring, Garage Doors, Roofing, Siding, Entry Systems, and Windows.
When considering Kitchen remodeling projects, Jim will help you decide between a countertop replacement project or a major kitchen remodel. Countertop replacement projects feature options including custom laminate countertops by Wilsonart, or solid surface countertops including Acrylic, Quartz, or Granite tops brought to you by The American Countertop selections or Dupont Corian, and Zodiac. All solid surface countertops feature custom templating and a lifetime stain proof warranty.
Kitchen remodeling can consist of a custom refacing of your existing cabinets, cabinet replacement, or a total major remodel. Through the consultation process, Jim will help you determine what level of update will best meet your needs.
When updating a bathroom, options include cost effective options such as countertop replacement, replacing the wet area including updating walls in the tub and shower area; tub replacement; tub to shower conversions; or a more complete renovation including replacing the tub, vanity, toilet, medicine cabinet, linen closet, and flooring.
When updating your Heating and Cooling systems, options vary from individual component replacement to total system replacement and updating ductwork. Furnaces range in efficiency from 80% efficient to 96% efficient, and have various features that can address health and comfort concerns other than basic warmth. Likewise, Air Conditioning systems have varying degrees of efficiency and comfort options. Jim will help the homeowner design a system that meets both the economic and physical comfort concerns.
When looking at Flooring options, homeowners have choices between Hardwood, Engineered Wood, Laminate, Ceramic Tile, and Resilient Vinyl Flooring products. Sears has partnered with Mohawk to bring the most durable low maintanence products with exceptional installation and service. Jim will help match the use of the room with the best material for the homeowner.
When looking at updating the exterior of the home, the products that the homeowner chooses can have a dramatic impact on the curb appeal, pride of ownership, as well as the energy efficiency of the home. Most people do not realize that replacing a roofing system properly can reduce energy costs and improve the health of those living in the home. In addition to helping the homeowner select the Owens Corning Shingle product, Jim will evaluate the ventilation and insulation in the attic space to ensure that whatever roofing product is selected will likely be the last roof the homeowner will ever have to invest in.
When planning a siding project for the home, options range from gutter replacement, to soffit and fascia, to horizontal or vertical siding on the walls, to window and door wraps; or any combination of the phases. Since vinyl has varying degrees of quality and installation processes, Jim will help the homeowner select the product and installation that will address his/her concerns. All Sears' Siding products have lifetime transferrable warranties available.
When changing out an entry way, homeowners can choose from a simple door replacement on up to a complete overhaul. Door designs and glass options, as well as quality of construction will dramatically impact the level of investment for the homeowner. During Jim's consultation, he will help the homeowner address issues pertaining to curb appeal, security, function, and energy efficiency; and design an entry system that will also fit into the homeowner's budget.
When replacing windows, homeowners must choose between materials including, wood, metal, fiberglass, composite, and vinyl. Levels of investment can range from as low as $400 per window all the way up to $2,000 per window. During Jim's visit with the homeowner, he will help identify the style of windows as well as the level of quality that matches the homeowners needs regarding energy efficiency, comfort, security and budget.
With any major home improvement, homeowners are faced with concerns regarding identifying a qualified contractor, choosing the appropriate products, determining what exactly will be included in the project, and identifying the level of time and money required to successfully complete the project. Given all the variables involved in the home improvement project, what Jim provides to the homeowner is a highly qualified consultant who will take care of all the details and ensure the customer's total satisfaction.
