State-of-the-Art Experience With top brands at your fingertips, this showroom provides ideas, inspiration and quality products

Q:

Can anyone shop at the Ferguson showroom? A. Yes! Our customers are a mix of homeowners and trade professionals. We are proud to be a strong partner of professional builders, designers and remodelers across Atlanta.

Q: Q:

Tell us about Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery.

A. Step into a Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery and you’ll see beautifully displayed lighting, appliances, bath and kitchen products from today’s top brands (Thermador, Viking, Sub-Zero, Moen). Our state-of-the-art showroom allows customers to experience stunning, innovative products in a welcoming, handson environment. From exquisitely designed bathroom displays with functional showerheads, to full kitchens with working appliances, customers can explore design styles ranging from classical elegance to bold contemporary.

Q: WINTER 2018

What makes Ferguson unique from other kitchen/bath or lighting distributors? A. Ask customers what brings them back and they’ll likely say it’s the people. Our product experts have years of industry experience and are extremely knowledgeable on design trends, product selections and the building/ remodeling process. We work with you one-on-one to bring your vision to life.

Where can I find inspiration for my next project?

A. The most important step in the design process is to determine how your home will look, feel and function. We have endless inspiration on our website and social media pages. We also recently launched the fifth edition of our Trends & Influences lookbook, which features innovations in plumbing, lighting and appliances, developed with insight from industry influencers.

Q:

Why do you love working for Ferguson?

A. It’s the culture, people and spirit of giving back to the communities in which we live and work through our Ferguson Cares program. We provide more than just a product or a donation—we build long-lasting, purposeful partnerships with our customers and BRUCE WOOD, BRANCH MANAGER AT neighbors in need. FERGUSON’S BUCKHEAD LOCATION

AT HOME IN B u c k h e a d

Beginning with the bones of a traditional English manor, the design of this custom home emphasized clean lines to reflect a transitional style, which blends classic and contemporary elements. When building your dream home, consider the following:

1

Find ways to disguise the lot’s negative qualities with clever planning. For this home, a

MyBH_020-031_PROJECTS_1118.indd 23

courtyard façade was constructed to provide a buffer to a busy street.

2

Make windows an architectural feature. Prominent windows around a stunning entryway pull guests in with a focal point.

3

Use materials that are fitting for the architecture. The steel here accentuates the transitional feel.

Timothy Adams is the lead architect at TS Adams Studio. “We love working in Buckhead because the area is rich in the history of traditional architecture. There are plenty of buildings we constantly draw on for inspiration for our current projects,” says Adams. TSAdamsStudio.com

The modern makeover of this low-set ranch included adding a second floor to create much-needed space. Thinking about a ranch renovation? Remember the following nuggets of wisdom:

1

Use glass, like the sweeping windows seen here, not merely for aesthetics but to also make rooms appear larger.

MyBH_020-031_PROJECTS_1118.indd 27

2

Create a clean and simple look by using a few select materials. For the exterior, and throughout the home, steel and Brazilian ipe wood were among the limited number of elements used on this project.

3

Organize the remodel into phases so that you can make the most of your time and budget. Rome wasn’t built in a day and your

revamp shouldn’t be either. Bryan Russell, R.A., is the co-owner of Dencity, LLC. “I live and work in Buckhead and love the close connection to all of my clients and vendors. Buckhead has a density and urban quality that brings lots of people and life to its core,” says Russell. Dencity.us

This Buckhead homeowner wanted a timeless loggia for her home where she could entertain throughout the year. Take these tips into account when planning your outdoor space:

1

Adding a fireplace to one end of the space, like in this design (seen on cover), creates an ideal place for gathering during colder months.

2

A TV is a must for those fall football games! This home’s outdoor TV is hidden in the console on a hydraulic lift and is able to pivot 180 degrees to the dining or living area.

GARAGE DOORS

What are the hottest trends in flooring?

Luxury vinyl is all the rage these days. The industry has made impressive strides in the design of this material so that it is durable but can look almost identical to a variety of more highmaintenance flooring options. Homeowners are moving away from darker colors with glossy finishes and are leaning toward lighter and medium toned woods with more “character.” Elisabeth Stubbs The distressed look is definitely in and great for families with children and pets who might add some nicks and scratches.

What are some early signs of foundation issues?

A

A few things to look for include foundation settlement, vertical or stair-step foundation wall cracks (external or internal), a tilting chimney, and doors or windows that jam or stick. Also, check for internal wall cracks extending from the top corner of a door or window diagonally toward Tom DiGregorio and Joe Rusk the ceiling/corner of the wall on which the door or window sits. Catch these telltale signs early and you could potentially save thousands on repairs later.

How long do average concrete repairs take?

One or two sections of sidewalk could take 1½ to 2 hours to repair, compared to a garage floor, which could take a day or more. Each job is different. From the area to how much leveling is needed to the size of the void, all of these factors contribute to Michael Cangemi the time required to complete a repair.

Q

What are three things I can do to prepare my home for winter?

A

First, you should have a professional conduct routine maintenance on your home’s heating system. Next, clear the leaves and other debris Bill Mashraky and Mike Eberle from around the outdoor unit. And last but not least, clean the vents and make sure there is unobstructed airflow around both the supply and return ducts.

Q

Why does my toilet keep running after being flushed?

A

A running toilet can be caused by worn parts in the toilet tank or by high water pressure in the home, which could be caused by a failed pressure regulating valve. This is why it’s important to have your water pressure checked regularly by Jerry Hall an expert.

The way to avoid light shining in the house is to place the lights on either side of a window or in between windows. This way, more light will be focused on the actual façade of the home. Occasionally, it will be unavoidable to have some light filter into the house. For this, we always recommend placing room-darkening Lindsey Barnhill shades inside.

ENERGY STAR® is a federal program that determines whether or not a variety of products, including windows and doors, meet certain energy-efficiency standards. We offer a wide selection of ENERGY STAR® products, including Marvin Windows and Doors. Marvin offers thousands of windows and doors with two or three panes of glass that are energy efficient, versatile and Peter Morrison beautiful.
