PUBLISHER Patti Stephens

What you need to know about the Best of 2022 winners is this: They received the award because there are a lot of people who know them, trust them and believe they are the best at what they do. Those believers go online and vote daily to show their support for these local businesses, and those endorsements mean they have a loyal following. This says something.

FOUNDER Sherri Adair

There was a time not so long ago that, as a media company owner, I refused to run Best of contests. I didn’t believe it was really fair to label any one business as the best because we have so many great ones in our community, and being the best varies depending on who you ask. But eventually, I changed my mind, and here is why. At the end of the day, I think these contests can provide valuable insight to readers and value to our local Alpharetta businesses who choose to participate.

Improve the Value of Your Home with a

GREAT LAWN First Impressions A great-looking home starts with a great-looking lawn. In real estate, first impressions are everything. Potential buyers often fall in love with a home the moment they pull into the driveway. Curb appeal is the first thing people notice and is a sign of what they can expect from the interior of the home. A well maintained lawn gives buyers confidence that the rest of the home has been equally well maintained.

An Extension of Home Landscaping is one of the most cost-efficient options for adding value to a home. Lawns are not only visually appealing, but they extend the living area of the home as well. An inviting lawn provides an ideal setting for outdoor recreation, entertainment, and relaxation.

Only the Best Will Do

Unfortunately, many homeowners contend with new sod that is contaminated with weeds or with lower-quality grasses that affect overall lawn performance. Be sure that you or your landscaper select a certified variety that will work for your yard’s unique needs. Since there are no laws regarding turfgrass to protect consumers, certification offers the only quality control in the industry.

Practice Proper Lawn Care Certified sod offers a strong foundation to any landscape. Once that foundation is established, practicing proper lawn care is a great way to boost the value of your home and earn the gratitude of your neighbors. Keep your grass in good shape with regular watering, proper mowing, and fertilizing. If you are ready to increase the value of your home with a great lawn, give the Certified Turf Professionals at NG Turf a call at 770-431-1344.

Using premium, certified sod is a quick way to establish a natural, long-lasting landscape to increase curb appeal when selling a home, establishing a lawn at a new residency, or to simply hit the reset button on your current space. When buying sod for your yard, it is often assumed the grass is all the same variety and free of weeds.

Experts Provide Solutions For Your Everyday Q WATERPROOFING

Q

SIDING

What unexpected benefits can encapsulation provide?

A

The added benefits of a ’58 Crawlspace Encapsulation System are twofold. One, you’ll have lower energy bills. Studies

show that crawl space encapsulation can result in up to a 20% reduction in heating and cooling costs

due to reduced moisture. Two, thanks to our super-tough liner and high-quality moisture control, you can enjoy extra storage space in what we call a finished crawl space.

‘58 Foundations

Q

How long does it typically take to install new siding?

A

Project length depends on the size of your house, and we always strive to complete work in a timely fashion without sacrificing quality. For an

Charlie Dallavalle

average East Cobb house, start to finish, including completing the painting and the gutters, the process can take about a

month. The best time to paint is when temperatures are between 70 and 80 degrees, making May the perfect month to kick off your project.

ToddDallavalle Prosan Charlie

GARAGE DOORS

Q

Is a garage door screen easy to operate?

A

Yes, a garage door screen is very easy to use. The screen is mounted on a separate track from the door and is easily raised and lowered with one hand.

The screen allows you to use the garage with the door up without inviting in bugs or having to chase running dogs or kids. A garage door screen is also an easy way to convert your garage into a screened in patio for summer get-togethers.

ay Questions WINDOW REPLACEMENT

Q

If I’m not ready to replace all my windows, which ones should I prioritize?

FLOORING INSTALLATION

A

We recommend replacing the worst first. If you have wood rot, this could cause further structural damage. Or, if

there are areas you spend a lot of time in and you’re uncomfortable due to heat/cold, sound, etc.,

then those may be a priority. Our price-lock guarantee lets you break your project up into phases while locking you into that price for 36 months.

North Georgia Replacement Windows

GUTTERS

Q

How do I know if my gutters slope correctly?

A

A gutter slope, also known as a gutter pitch, is the slight tilt your gutters have that allows water to flow down and out of the gutter system. Signs of

improper gutter slope include standing water in your gutters and gutters that appear to be pulling away from your home.

It’s important to maintain a gutter system that properly diverts water away from your home to prevent foundation issues and water damage to other parts of your home.

Q

When is hardwood flooring beyond repair?

Years in Business: 26 Associations: Groundworks, NARI, BHA, GREC, ACCG 770.685.7825 | www.aquaguard.net

A

Three-quarter-inch-thick solid hardwood floors can be refinished multiple times. Some engineered wood floors can be refinished, depending on the thickness of the top ply of wood. When

wood has been submerged in water, it almost always needs to be replaced. Dark

spots, such as one from an overwatered Elisabeth Stubbs plant in a corner, for example, often will not sand out. A flooring professional can tell if the wood can be salvaged or not.

Is it worth it to convert a framed glass shower enclosure to frameless?

A

According to real estate agents, one of the easiest and most costefficient things you can do to add value to your home is to replace your dated framed shower door with a new frameless enclosure.

Frameless enclosures create the perception of space and light and are easier to clean and maintain.
