“The most valuable aspect of serving on an HBA committee is partnering with a group of like-minded leaders who understand the values the home building industry brings to sustaining the economic viability of local communities. People who have never considered joining a committee need to realize the world can make a mark on them or they can become involved in the historical process of making a mark on the world.” Cyle Cavett, Gary Cavett & Co. CPAs 2011 Membership Committee chair

“As someone new to the building trade industry, it was my desire to meet, learn and associate with the leaders and to participate and contribute where possible. The most valuable aspects are numerous and the ability to participate as member of a team is awesome.” Gary Grandbois, Granite Unlimited 2011 Remodelers Council chair

“I have been a member of the HBA for years, but was never really involved. Taking advice form a friend, I decided a great way to get involved was to join a committee. By serving on the Public Issues Committee, I am able to stay informed with the most important issues that concern our industry and have also found that it is the best way to learn about the HBA, meet fellow members and support the industry that we all work in.” John Koerselman, Red River Drywall and Painting Services, Inc. 2011 Public Issues Committee chair

ome Builders Care Foundation is the charitable arm of Home Builders Association of F-M. Its funds are earmarked for skill training, education and projects related to the housing industry. The goals of Home Builders Care Foundation are to promote, organize and coordinate the community outreach efforts of the home building industry. It strongly encourages participation by HBA of F-M members, and HBA staff provides administrative support for HBC. It has recently launched its long-term fundraising initiative, Framework for the Future. This initiative has been set to build the endowment fund to maintain current giving, support additional projects and provide for endowment growth. HBC hopes to become self-sustaining while also increasing its impact on the industry and community. Visit www.hbcfm.com for more details or to donate.

Skill Training & Education

HBC has provided over $149,000 in scholarship money to area universities, technical schools and high school students over the past several years. The Home Builders Care Foundation board of trustees hopes to build on its current scholarship programs and do much more for local students. Scholarships awarded by the Foundation have included travel scholarships to the International Builders Show; Herdina Academy for the Construction Trades scholarships for students to attend M StateMoorhead or NDSCS; and fall scholarships awarded to students at M State-Moorhead, MSUM, NDSCS, NDSU and local high

Home Builders Care Foundation is a major supporter of the Health Tech & Trades Career Expo, held every December for area ninth graders. This event allows students to explore a variety of careers with hands-on activities. Home Builders Care Foundation also supports the Herdina Academy for the Construction Trades, a two-week course for high schools students to experience many jobs within the building industry. Students participate in excavating, concrete work, framing, siding, roofing, electrical, plumbing and much more.

Other Housing Projects

In 2011, HBC supported State Bank & Trust’s Rebuilding Together of Fargo-Moorhead project. State Bank & Trust, through its “Pay it Forward” initiative, partnered with Rebuilding Together to finish a basement in a Fargo home. The family had extended family living with them due to medical issues and needed more space. State Bank & Trust provided all the materials but needed help with building expertise, especially in the electrical, HVAC and framing areas. State Bank & Trust asked Home Builders Care to support the project through

in-kind labor and their valuable building knowledge. Members of the Board of Trustees donated their time and talents to the project. Coming up in 2012, HBC is partnering with the Home Builders Association to complete a build for Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity. This project will be a great collaboration between these three organizations. Planning is in the works and fundraising will begin in earnest in early 2012. HBA members can consider donating materials or labor to help us complete the house. Members are also encouraged to create teams to participate in the Tour de Habitat that will be March 3. Teams can designate what project their funds support. The last large project for HBC was the RENEW House. This house was a collaborative effort Home Builders Care con’t on pg 40 HBC board members assist with State Bank & Trust’s Rebuilding Together project in 2011 to help a local family with medical issues that needed more space.

Moorhead resident Robert Garza, 1700 3rd Ave S, #226, in Bennett Park Mobile Home Court. Garza has suffered from kidney disease all his life and, in the last few years, was diagnosed with peripheral artery disease (P.A.D.), a circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs. Garza has had one leg amputated and now has problems with the other leg resulting from P.A.D. Doctoring at Fargo’s V.A. Hospital, Garza is wheelchairbound and lives with his longtime girlfriend, Dorene Neeland. “This ramp helps a lot because I was carrying that heavy wheelchair from the car, up the stairs and into the house,” she says. “Then I was helping him climb up and down the stairs on his visits home from the hospital, too.” Garza adds, “I had a hard time getting into the house, and sometimes even had to crawl. I will be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life, so this ramp makes a huge difference for us.”

Connie Mere

In early February, 2010, volunteers from the Remodelers Council spent the day at Moorhead resident Connie Mere’s home constructing a ramp, which allowed her to venture outside for the first time in over two months. Mere was in an 62

accident 34 years ago that resulted in the loss of both her legs from the knee down. “I really appreciate what they did because it’s beautiful!” Mere says. “And, it’s definitely better than my old one, that’s for sure!” The HBA of F-M and Remodelers Council coordinated these projects with Freedom Resource Center, an advocacy organization designed to assist people with disabilities in achieving and maintaining independent lifestyles. The city of Moorhead Neighborhood Services approved Community Development Block Grants for reimbursement funds to cover material costs. The grant was applied for by Home Builders Care of F-M Foundation.

Above: Robert Garza waits while Remodelers Council members construct his wheelchair ramp.

Right: Connie Mere appreciates the freedom her ramp allows her to venture outside more often.

Remodelers Council supports community through handicap-accessible ramp projects, RENEW project

T

he Remodelers Council is a committee of the Home Builders Association of F-M that deals with issues affecting the remodeling segment of the building industry. Meetings are held approximately every other month for networking, informative sessions and conducting council business. The Council was formed in 1990 and assists in planning and coordinating the Fall Home Show. Council members regularly lend their efforts to charitable projects and build two to three handicap accessibility ramps a year. They also built bunk beds for the Gladys Ray Shelter in Fargo. The Council’s last major project was the RENEW Home, a 100-yearold home that was renovated from top to bottom and sold last year to an income-eligible family. RENEW is an acronym for “restoring existing neighborhoods for everyone’s well being.” The Council teamed up with the Home Builders Care of Fargo-Moorhead Foundation and HBA of F-M membership to remodel the home at 923 5th Ave S in Fargo. The RENEW Home’s goals were to: • help revitalize one of Fargo’s older neighborhoods, • help an income-eligible family achieve the dream of homeownership, and • showcase the remodeling industry by demonstrating what can be done to fix up an existing home.

Home Builders Association offers tools for consumers

F

argo-Moorhead area residents know the Home Builders Association of F-M for many reasons. Maybe you have visited the Home & Garden Show. Perhaps you have clicked on www.hbafm.com seeking information about choosing a contractor. Or maybe you have picked up the newspaper and seen one of our leaders quoted in a story about housing. Bryce Johnson Founded in 1956, we are a trade association for the HBA Executive home building industry; a major part of our mission is Vice President brycea@hbafm.com to provide quality services, benefits and education to consumers. We are here for you, whether you are buying a home, remodeling a home or just looking for some ideas to refresh the home or yard you already love. The HBA of F-M, its staff, leadership and members want to be the go-to source for you throughout the home journey that is uniquely yours.

What we offer you: access!

You can access our membership and others involved in the home building industry through this printed directory, online at www.hbafm. com, at the Red River Valley Home & Garden Show, at the Fall Home Show and at our two Parade of Homes events in the spring and fall. New this year is our first-annual Remodeled Home Tour to be held this fall! Through these publications and events, we want to promote the quality contractors and supporting companies that are available for all of your home improvement and building projects. It is our goal to produce highquality public events: one-stop shopping at our home shows and an array of beautiful, diverse homes and remodels to view during Parades and the Remodeled Home Tour. Our shows feature knowledgeable, dynamic featured speakers who have brought topics like interior design, green building and remodeling, kitchen and bath renovation and cutting-edge painting techniques to the Fargodome and Civic Center stages. All events feature guides offering the latest updates for consumers on home buying and remodeling incentives, tips and details about the events themselves. Our Parades and Remodeled Home Tour even feature an online guide and magazine accessible through the Internet. See details about our events on page 26 . You can connect to our public events through our Facebook pages! Like us at www.facebook.com/ParadeFM and www.facebook.com/ HomeShowFM. You can also follow the HBA’s activities in general at www.facebook.com/HBAFargoMoorhead. 142

Governmental voice

On the local, state and national levels, we always advocate for legislation that keeps housing affordable to you, the home buyer and renovator. The HBA played a big part in legislation that allows tax exemptions on new construction currently available to home buyers through the cities of Fargo, West Fargo, Moorhead and Dilworth. Our staff and members also worked diligently at the North Dakota Legislature to head off ineffective fire sprinkler mandates that could have raised the cost of a single-family home by thousands of dollars. These are just two examples of major achievements on the state level. We also advocate on the local level and have wonderful relationships with our metro-area city governments. Government officials routinely seek feedback from the HBA when it comes to implementing regulations that may impact home buyers. Most often, we are asked to sit at the table on the front end of changes rather than be put in a reactive position to oppose restrictive regulations.

Scholarships, community outreach

Through its charitable organization, Home Builders Care of F-M Foundation, the HBA strives to give back to this community. HBC offers scholarships to area students interested in a building industry career. We also support events for youth like the Health, Tech & Trades Career Expo and the Herdina Academy for the Construction Trades. HBC and HBA members are dedicated to making the F-M metro area a better place to live by contributing to and organizing projects that revitalize residential properties, raise funds for organizations like Lake Agassiz Habitat for Humanity and provide renovation support for homeowners in need of wheelchair ramps. See www.hbcfm.com or pages 35-40 for more details about our community service efforts. You can also find HBC on Facebook at www.facebook.com/HomeBuildersCare. We hope you will connect with the HBA and its events in one way or another. Whether it is at the Home & Garden Show, by liking us on Facebook or by using this directory, please make us your go-to source for everything home-building related!

Now is a great time to buy: Tips to start your road to homeownership

T

he American dream of homeownership is within your reach! With the right planning, many people who rent the home in which they live could afford to buy one. Some consumers may be wary of buying a home or putting money into a home remodel with the economic times we currently face. In actuality, now is a great time to buy. The F-M metro area is buffered to a certain extent from national economic trends. According to an economist with the National Association of Home Builders, our region has stayed relatively strong and is a bright spot on the national housing radar. A prosperous and diversified business base is continuing to stimulate and grow the area’s economy. The Fargo-Moorhead economy is solid and job creation is strong. In fact, North Dakota is one of the only states in the nation where home prices continue to appreciate. For those who would like a complete overview of the home buying process, The Village Family Service Center offers home buyer education workshops which include all elements of purchasing a home from beginning to end. Joshua Huffman, financial counselor and home buyer education facilitator at The Village Family Service Center, says,“Going through the home buyer education classes at The Village allows people to learn how to get into a home they can afford 144

and keep. This class makes sure they know all the programs that are available for purchasing a home.” Check out www.helpwithmoney. org or contact The Village Family Service at (800) 450-4019 for more information. Educating yourself about the process and responsibilities of being a homeowner will most likely save time, stress, and even money, in the end. There are many programs available within the metro area to help you purchase a home. These incentives and tax exemptions are outlined beginning on page 154. Before you find a home you like, one of the first steps is to determine whether you can afford it or not. Check out the following tips: 1. Review your income. A certain amount in savings is sometimes needed to apply toward down payment and closing costs. There are loan programs available (e.g. FHA and VA mortgage programs) that require less cash payment at closing. 2. Review your debt responsibilities. Consider how debt in relation to income will influence a lender’s decision on your mortgage loan amount. Additional debt from house payments on top of existing debt might restrict your lifestyle.

2012 HBA of F-M Directory & Buyer’s Guide


3. Get pre-approved and pre-qualified with a lender. A lender can help you find the right loan or assistance programs available to purchase a home. Some tools are included in this directory to help you estimate the house price you can afford: buyer’s cost statement (page 146), amortization schedule (page 148) and loan application checklist (page 150). 4. Review your savings. Be prepared for some costs that you cannot finance through your loan; there are some costs that must be paid at the closing, the day that you buy your home. 5. Monthly expenses may increase. The purchase of your home will likely change how much you will need to spend on expenses every month. If you have trouble saving now, your finances might be too tight with the purchase of a home. If the time is financially right for you to purchase a home, consider the advantages that ownership has over renting. 6. Think of it as scheduled savings. As a homeowner, your monthly mortgage payments serve as a type of savings plan. Over time, you will accumulate what lenders call “equity,� an ownership interest in your house that you may be able to borrow against or convert to cash by selling the house. Renters continually pay rent to a landlord for as long as they rent without opportunity to build up equity. 7. Check out the incentives available through local jurisdictions or state governments at www.hbafm.com or reading pages 154158. Home prices are reasonable locally, giving buyers a unique opportunity to find affordable housing. Most likely, you can get the house of your dreams and still have a budget for decorating.

Buyer’s Cost Statement

ou can save yourself the disappointment of falling in love with a home you can’t afford by pre-qualifying for a loan through the lender of your choice. Using the chart below, you can estimate the amount you can afford. As a rule of thumb, your mortgage payment (principal, tax, interest and insurance) should be no more than 28 percent of your gross monthly income before taxes. All of your monthly obligations including your mortgage payment should not exceed 36 percent of your gross monthly income. The 28 percent and 36 percent ratios apply only to conventional loans. FHA and VA Loans have different criteria. 1. Add monthly principal and interest payment from amortization schedule, (page 148)._______________ 2. Add monthly real estate tax (can be obtained from your real estate agent or your local county courthouse).____________ 3. Add monthly insurance payment (get estimate from insurance agent of your choice).______________ Total basic monthly housing cost.____________ 4. Compare basic housing cost to the 28 percent ratio on the chart from the right.___________________ 5. With your other monthly obligations, the ratio becomes 36 percent from chart.___________________

Insurance Considerations

uying a home is one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime. It is important to protect that investment with homeowners, disability and life insurance policies. Look for an insurance agency with a long-standing, solid reputation. Ask for referrals from friends and co-workers. The insurance company should also have a reputation for fast, fair claims service and have a solid financial rating of “A” or better from AM Best, an independent company that ranks insurance companies’ financial performance. Some items usually covered by insurance include damages from: • Fire or smoke, explosion • Lightning, windstorm or hail • Vehicles or aircraft • Vandalism or theft • Falling objects • Bulging, cracking, rupture of hot-water heating systems

• Freezing of a plumbing system or household appliance • Water damage • Loss of use Personal liability • Weight of ice/snow

Many factors determine the cost of insurance. Some include: • Size of home • Age of home • Home renovation • Wood stoves • Alarm system • Locks/deadbolts • Smoke detectors • Other buildings on the property

• Heating system • In-home business • Limit of personal liability • Loss history • Credit score • Other coverage with same company • Deductible • Type of roof

Some options you may want to add: • Flood insurance • Water backup • Identity theft coverage

152

• Increased coverage • for jewelry, guns, silver, money

Incentives Home Buyers and Homeowners

Cities offer tax incentives for homeowners

by Rocky Schneider & Krista Mund Editor’s Note: See page 157 for websites and contact information on these programs and home renovation programs. he cities of Fargo and West Fargo offer a two-year tax exemption on new construction that offers thousands of dollars in savings for buyers. The law was updated in 2009 to offer more benefit for home buyers, increase home sales and strengthen a struggling housing market. The improved incentive offers a $150,000 value reduction off building value for two full years to owners of a newly constructed home. This amounts up to a $2,600 per year savings on property taxes, totaling up to $5,200 in savings. The incentive is available to all jurisdictions in North Dakota due to legislation, S.B. 2247, passed during the 2009 legislation session. The bill doubled the amount of value available from $75,000 to $150,000. The bill also clarified the language to guarantee every qualifying home buyer two full years of benefit. The original bill and value amount were first established in 1983. “These tax exemption programs in our communities are an incredible deal for home buyers,” said Bryce Johnson, Home Builders Association of F-M executive vice president. “The incentives go a long way to increase home buying activity and help keep the housing industry a robust part of the local economy.” 2012 Home Builders Association of F-M President Terry Becker, Terry Becker Construction, LLC, echoes that sentiment, “The incentives give Realtors a tool that is easy to understand when using it to sell a home, and they give new homeowners an incentive to buy. It provides a little break during a time when costs are the highest.” Minnesota also has a Homestead Tax Credit that is available in Moorhead and Dilworth. It provides a tax credit for property that is owned and occupied; the amount of the credit varies depending on the market value of the property.

Home buyers can get down-payment, closing cost, financing assistance

by Krista Mund Editor’s Note: See page 157 for websites and contact information on these programs and home renovation programs. Home buyer assistance through state and local governments comes in many different forms. Here is a quick rundown of what is available: Fargo has a program designed to assist low- and moderate-income households in Fargo with down payment and closing costs. Available through funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Fargo Planning Department administers the Home Buyer Assistance Program which lends funds in the form of a zero-interest deferred payment loan. Learn more at www.cityoffargo.com/CityInfo/ Departments/PlanningandDevelopment/Grants/DownpaymentAssistance. Currently there are no home buyer assistance programs in West Fargo. According to Assessor Wanda Wilcox, West Fargo is too small to qualify for the same funding Fargo uses, and too large to qualify for rural programs. Minnesota Housing program first-time buyer programs are available to eligible buyers in Moorhead and Dilworth. The state of Minnesota’s programs give home buyers some choices for assistance. Several options exist for down-payment/closing-cost assistance and mortgage financing, depending on income and borrower eligibility. Moorhead Neighborhood Services Manager Lisa Vatnsdal says that there are a number of area lenders who participate in below-market interest rate mortgages through Minnesota Housing programs, including Community Activity Set Aside, or CASA, and Minnesota Mortgage Program. Moorhead buyers may also qualify for zero-interest deferred down payment and closing-cost loan assistance programs called Homeownership Assistance Fund (HAF) and Home Help. Even more resources are targeted to Moorhead’s Stonemill Ponds neighborhood; no interest affordability gap loans and special assessment financing are available for qualified first-time home buyers. Vatnsdal says, “Up to $44,500 may be available to assist eligible home buyers purchase a newly constructed home in this neighborhood.”

Warranty laws vary between N.D., Minn.

North Dakota Warranty Information

T

he State of North Dakota has an implied warranty law that is spelled out in the North Dakota Century Code sections 41-02-31 through 41-02-35. For a first-hand look at this law, consumers and builders can access the state’s website at www.legis.nd.gov/information/statutes/cent-code.html; or copies of the North Dakota Century Code can be obtained at your local library or county courthouse. North Dakota also has a Notice & Opportunity to Repair Law that requires homeowners to give a contractor written notice by mail within a certain time of the defect being discovered, and giving the contractor a reasonable time to comply with this section.

Minnesota Warranty Information

I

n accordance with Minnesota law, every builder must offer a warranty. The law states: in every sale of a completed dwelling, and in every contract for the sale of a dwelling to be completed, the vendor shall warrant to the vendee that: • during the one-year period from and after the warranty date, the dwelling shall be free from defects caused by faulty workmanship and defective materials due to noncompliance with building standards; • during the two-year period from and after the warranty date, the dwelling shall be free from defects caused by faulty installation of plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling systems due to noncompliance with building standards; • during the ten-year period from and after the warranty date, the dwelling shall be free from major construction defects due to noncompliance with building standards. In 2010, provisions were added to the warranty law that: • strengthen the notice and opportunity to repair law; • create an early neutral evaluator panel to help decide the scope of work in cases where there is a disagreement; and • require builders to develop performance guidelines, a handbook for homeowners and builders on who is responsible for items under the warranty laws. You only receive protection of the Minnesota warranty if you work with a licensed builder. By working with a licensed builder, you also receive the protection of the state recovery fund, which pays up to $50,000 for problems caused by a builder. If you want to check to see if a particular contractor is licensed in North Dakota or Minnesota, check out the following websites: www. nd.gov/sos/licensing or www.doli.state.mn.us. Articles

10 tips for choosing a contractor

D

o your homework before you have work done on your home or business. Don’t hire just any builder or remodeler who may have magically appeared on the scene! “With our extraordinary weather, it is more important than ever to make sure you are using a local, licensed contractor,” says Bryce Johnson, Home Builders Association of F-M executive vice president. “Out-of-town contractors come with every major storm or construction opportunity. While some of those companies are legitimate, sometimes they are not licensed and are difficult to track down if any future issues arise. Many times these outside contractors are just trying to make a quick buck and move on to the next place.” Use these tips to select a professional you can trust with your future. 1. Always check to see if the contractor you are considering, local or transient, is licensed in the state in which work will be performed. Contact the appropriate governmental agency: North Dakota Secretary of State’s office at (701) 328-3665 or the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry at (651) 284-5034 or (651) 2845069 to verify the builder is currently licensed and to find out if he or she has a disciplinary history. The status of a contractor’s license can also be verified by using the website nd.gov/ sos/licensing/ or www.doli.state. mn.us/contractor. html. 2.

FAQ about contractors

Ask.

How do I find out if a contractor is licensed?

When looking for a builder or remodeler, check with the North Dakota Secretary of State: www.nd.gov/sos/licensing. In Minnesota, this information can be found online: www.doli.state.mn.us. Ask to see a copy of the license. By law, all licensed builders must carry a pocket card of their license and have their license displayed in their office. If a contractor is insulted by you having asked to see their license, they probably don’t have one.

What if I have problems with my builder or contractor?

The typical house contains more than 3,000 different parts. It would be unrealistic to expect your new home to be perfect. Even the best built homes and additions are likely to need a few corrections. Most problems are corrected routinely by the contractor, however, if a nonroutine problem arises, you should follow certain procedures to correct the situation: Identify the nature of the problem and put it in writing. Both the states of North Dakota and Minnesota have a Notice and Opportunity to Repair law that requires homeowners to give the contractor written notice by mail within a certain time of the defect being discovered, and giving the contractor a reasonable time to comply with this section. Familiarize yourself with warranty coverage. Go directly to the contractor with complaints; do not go through a third party until you have given your contractor a reasonable chance to correct the problem.

Identify.

A question frequently asked of HBA of F-M staff: “Can you refer builders and other trade contractors to me?”

Yes and no.

We can give you information for all of our members in the specialty you desire. Visit the classification section of this book to search for a member by category (or visit www.hbafm.com). You must determine who is the best contractor for you. Those who belong to the Home Builders Association of F-M subscribe to a code of ethics. In general, those who belong to trade associations see a need to stay abreast of current industry developments and care about giving back to their industry. They have a sense of responsibility.

wary of any contractor that requires full payment up front, uses highpressure sales tactics or asks you to sign authorization paperwork or a contract that you don’t understand. Consider paying with a credit card since these companies have better methods of remedying disputes and dealing with fraudulent charges. 3. Get a detailed contract including a summary of the work to be done, a description of materials, the total contract price or how the price will be calculated and specific timelines. Do not sign it until you are comfortable. 4. Ask the contractor how long and where he or she has been in business. 5. Request references and check with former customers to see if they were satisfied with the work. 6. Ask for a local business address, other than a post office box, and a local phone number where the contractor can be reached during normal business hours. Some transient companies will open a post office box or can easily acquire a cell phone with a local number to give the appearance of being a local company, when it is not. 7. Ask about warranty work and the company’s service policies. 8. Find out if the contractor has sufficient workers compensation and general liability insurance. If not, you may be liable for any construction-related accidents on your premises. 9. Is he or she a member of a trade association such as the HBA of F-M? Generally members of the HBA see a need to stay abreast of current industry developments and care about giving back to their industry. 10. Lastly, make sure you can communicate with the contractor and feel comfortable with him or her. Misunderstandings during the course of the project can lead to cost overruns and delays.

What’s in a designation?

A

by Krista Mund designation from the National Association of Home Builders or the North Dakota Association of Builders says a lot about a builder, remodeler or building industry associate. Professional designations offer opportunities for Home Builders Association of F-M members to improve skills, advance their careers, and be recognized for commitment to professional growth. See the facing page for a list of HBA members as who have earned designations as of Nov. 15, 2011.

National Association of Home Builders designations

North Dakota Professional Builder designation

NAHB has the most targeted curriculum, accomplished teachers and widely respected education opportunities in the business. The following are brief descriptions of designations that HBA of F-M members have earned: • Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation program teaches technical, business management and customer service skills essential to competing in the aging-inplace market. • Certified Graduate Builder (CGB) emphasizes business and project management skills. • Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR) emphasizes business management skills as key to a professional remodeling operation. • Certified Green Professional (CGP) teaches techniques for incorporating green building principles into homes without driving up construction cost. To earn these designations, members must take NAHBapproved courses from a set curriculum and keep up with continuing education.

North Dakota Professional Builders are required to: • Meet membership requirements of their local home builders association. • Must have held a contractor’s license in the state of North Dakota for at least two years. • Comply with all appropriate North Dakota statutes concerning contractors. • Build in compliance with appropriate local, state and national building codes. • Adhere to the Code of Ethics of North Dakota Association of Builders. • Complete seven credit hours of continuing education annually. NDAB makes best efforts to determine a builder’s qualifications for certification as a North Dakota Professional Builder. While the program recognizes the professionalism of a builder, NDAB does not make any warranty or representations, express or implied, to home buyers or others. It has not inspected the construction of any home and, therefore, does not and cannot address the quality of a home.

In the mid 2000s, the issue was studied in the city of Fargo through a mayorappointed task force that produced 11 recommendations identifying ways to reduce specials by about 20 percent. In 2011, the North Dakota Legislature convened an interim committee to study alternatives to finance infrastructure and increase understanding of special assessment strategies among local governments in the state.

Remember to check copyright on blueprints

C

by Krista Mund opyright infringement can happen unknowingly, in subtle ways. For instance, a couple may walk through a house during the Parade of Homes and love the way it looks and feels. Later, at their kitchen table, they sketch the layout on paper and decide to take the next step, ultimately working with a contractor different than the one who originally built the Parade house. Is this copyright infringement? Probably. It is the consumer’s responsibility to be forthcoming about his or her plan’s origins, just as the builder should ask questions about the drawing. But if the couple says nothing and the builder takes the sketch as original, everyone involved has just entered into a bad situation. Before using any floor plan that you have seen on paper or experienced by touring a home (even a friend’s home), be certain to find out its origins. Many times a builder will consider selling rights to a plan. If you don’t know where the plan originated, the safest bet is to start from scratch. Copyright owners have the right to give their property away, to release the design for general use, and to transfer it to the public domain. Consumers should look for a written release signed by the copyright owner to be certain he or she has placed the plans or drawings in the public domain.

Lead paint in older homes

T

What homeowners need to know and contractors need to do

he U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead: Renovation, Repair and Painting rule governing the work of professional remodelers in homes built before 1978 took effect April 22, 2010. The rule addresses remodeling and renovation projects for all residential and multifamily structures built prior to 1978 that disturb more than 6 square feet of painted surfaces inside the home or 20 square feet on the exterior of the home, due to possible lead paint contamination. Many remodelers and home renovators in the F-M metro area have complied with the rule by taking a required eight-hour certified renovator training course offered through the Home Builders Association of F-M and other providers. The EPA rule lists prohibited work practices, including open-torch burning and using high-heat guns and high-speed equipment such as grinders and sanders unless equipped with a HEPA filter. It also requires a cleaning inspection after the work is completed. “Basically, this rule is aimed at reducing the amount of dust created and spread throughout a home during a renovation project,” says 2011 Remodelers Council Chair Gary Grandbois, Granites Unlimited. “Lead can get into the body if people put their hands or other objects covered with lead dust in their mouths, eat paint chips or soil that contains lead or breathe in lead dust. By following these rules, we are doing our best to protect the homeowners and workers in the house.” Additionally, the rule establishes required lead-safe work practices, including sharing a copy of Renovate Right with the homeowner, posting warning signs for occupants and visitors; using disposable plastic drop cloths; cleaning the work area with HEPA vacuuming and wet washing; and individual certification through a training course. The full rule and Renovate Right brochures for consumers can be downloaded from the EPA’s website: www.epa.gov/lead. A 2006 National Association of Home Builders study on lead-safe work practices showed that a home was better off after a remodel than before, as long as the work was performed by trained remodelers who cleaned the work area with HEPA-equipped vacuums, wet washing and disposable drop cloths.

Tips for Homeowners Hire a Certified Renovator for home remodeling projects.

Professional remodelers who have achieved EPA lead-safe certification are trained and prepared to work in pre-1978 homes for minimizing dust and potential lead paint exposure. These workers also have certified their firms and will carry an EPA seal verifying their qualifications to follow lead-safe work practices. Certified renovators have the knowledge and tools to contain dust and 180

2012 HBA of F-M Directory & Buyer’s Guide


keep your family safe. Compare bids with this thought in mind. Do not attempt remodeling work yourself or hire an uncertified remodeler as this puts you at risk of lead poisoning. Remember, a bid from a contractor who is complying with the rule may be higher than a contractor who is not. Choosing the lower bid from a company that is not in compliance may end up costing you more in the long run, both health-wise and monetarily. Read Renovate Right.

Your certified renovator will provide you a copy of the Renovate Right brochure produced by the EPA. This brochure describes the dangers of lead poisoning and how the practices of the remodeler will be employed to contain dust, clean, and minimize the dangers of lead paint exposure. Pay attention to warning signs and do not enter containment areas.

The certified renovator will post warning signs and set up areas of containment using plastic to keep dust under control. Pay attention to these notices and stay away from these areas. The remodeler uses these techniques and lead-safe work practices to minimize lead dust exposure. Consider testing for lead.

You may ask the certified renovator to use test kits for testing certain surfaces for lead. If the test comes back negative, the remodeler will not need to use lead safe work practices because the component has tested lead-free. A homeowner may alternatively hire a certified risk assessor or lead inspector to conduct testing in the home for lead. Any pre-1978 home can be tested for lead and if the results are negative, the EPA lead rule does not apply.

Maintain records about your home remodel.

After the remodeling job is complete, the EPAcertified renovator will share records with you, such as a checklist describing the work practices used and any results from lead testing. Be sure to keep these records and share them with the next homeowner, if you should sell your home. Learn more about EPA’s lead paint rule by visiting www.epa.gov/lead/ pubs/renovation.htm or by downloading the brochure, Renovate Right.

Home interior design trends 2012: Natural, practicality meet eclectic

D

by Corin Gunderson esigning the interior of your home can be a daunting task, but it should not be feared. It should be an extension of your personality, which is uniquely different from everyone else. Your home should say, “This is me. This is what I like.” Many people, however, follow the upcoming trends of the new year. Karen Anderson, Rose Creek Design, is never a fan of following the trends. “I look at it as a misleading word. It is important to keep current on home improvement, but that does not mean being trendy,” Amy Nash, ALN Sustainable Design & Consulting, Ltd., says, “It’s about a homey, comfortable, personal space that brings harmony to your day. Your personality needs to be there.” Since it is your personality, the interior design of your home should be your choice. Whether you follow the trends or set your own, there is a style for everyone. For 2012, you can expect a mixture of new and old design trends that have been created or reinvented to fit your distinct personality. Here are a few categories with some key highlights worth remembering:

Color:

Natural is the way to go in 2012. According to Nash, white, black, silver, gray, and tan are clean and fresh. “Elegant combinations of neutrals mixed with natural tones of green, rust, gold and other ‘earthy’ mixes are always trendy and will continue in the upcoming year,” she says. If you have a big personality and want to make an even bigger statement, mix neutrals with bright colors. Orange, aqua, lavender and pink will add a punch for a colorful conversation.

Fabrics:

Fabric on each end of the design continuum is in style. Solids and big prints from floral, leaves, vines and fleur de lis are in demand. Texture will be seen in faux fur or clean sharp lines. In addition to style, you can live in sustainability. Nash says, “There are many fabrics that come from recycled clothing such as recycled men’s suits to bamboo and hemp blends with recycled synthetics.” This earth-friendly option is durable, easy to clean and is produced in the United States.

Floors:

Practicality is a must while contemplating floors in the Midwest.

182

2012 HBA of F-M Directory & Buyer’s Guide


Anderson says people in this region of the United States would like to have the durability of tiled floors, but it’s not practical with our cold climate, unless you also add floor heat. “People want to find something they will love that is easy to replace and consistent with the climate changes,” she says. Nash adds, flooring that is practical and trendy are hard surfaces. Reclaimed barn wood is a versatile choice in that it can look contemporary, rustic, or urban. In addition, to accent the hard look of wood, add a soft rug. “Rugs are even available in llama wool, goat hair and other natural fibers as well as advanced blends that give the feel of luxury and the ‘livability’ that can fit into any family’s use.” The ability to interchange area rugs comes with ease and affordability.

Walls:

Here in the Midwest we are reluctant to pick up one trend: wallpaper. While it died off after the 1960s and 1970s, it has reinvented itself in a big way. Anderson says, “Before, wallpaper was time consuming and too much work to remove, but now manufacturers are making them go up and come down with ease.” Nash adds that wallpaper is most effective when being used as a feature statement, such as a large pattern on one wall. With that being said, she still sees less wallpaper and more paint with added effect and texture.

Furniture:

Eclectic is in; combine different styles of furniture from different sources to create an environment all your own. Mix new and reused collections with period and modern pieces, having at least one unifying factor. According to Nash, this Design con’t on next pg

could be your accessories, colors or rugs. When you mix and match items, it gives your room “style, flavor, warmth and comfort,” says Nash. Most importantly the pieces should reflect those that will use them.

Those are the trends; so now what?

Designing the interior of your home does not have to be hard on your wallet. There are ways you can give your home a fresh look without busting your budget. Anderson believes this is easier now than ever before, “Now there are nice products out there that look great at every price point.” This allows you to find great accessories that will enhance your room on a budget. Also, let us not forget that we want “the most bang for the buck.” Nash says, “We want an ‘efficient sanctuary’ in our homes. In these economic times, we are looking to use our money the absolute best way that we can.” One way this can be done is by simply adding a few accessories, putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls, or rearranging the furniture. Every project can achieve a picturesque product on a budget. “The style can mean many things to many people, but the 184

need for mental and physical comfort, coupled with efficiency on all levels, seems to be the recurring theme that is only going to grow,” Nash says. Anderson adds, never follow a trend for the sake of following a trend. Your home should reflect you and your personality. Karen Anderson, owner of Rose Creek Design of Fargo, has 30 years of experience in the interior design and home furnishing industry. Her award-winning designs can be seen in Inspired Home magazine. She has traveled from Denver to Minneapolis, but has finally settled in Fargo. Amy L. Nash, of ALN Sustainable Design & Consulting, Ltd., is a sustainable interior sesigner with 13 years of architectural and interior design experience. Her specific areas of interest center on ecoresponsible natural and built environments including new construction, building re-use/rehabilitation, historic preservation, energy efficiency, sustainable planning and development relating to communities. Her design and life philosophy centers on the concept of “living local but thinking global.”

Kitchen design trends center on relaxation, convenience, efficiency

S

by Corin Gunderson tyle and function are the most important elements of a kitchen: everything from cooking, eating, studying and conversation takes place there. From one generation to the next, the kitchen has transformed from traditional to transitional, fitting into every family’s schedule. Homeowners are now looking for a kitchen that is relaxing, convenient and efficient in order to keep up with everyday demands. An updated kitchen can help you multitask, stay calm and enjoy time well spent with friends and family. For 2012, here are a few categories with some key highlights worth remembering:

Cabinetry & Hardware:

White, grey, chocolate and natural wood with a clear coat is in. Cabinetry should also create a feeling that is traditional rather than bulky. Kayla Benning, kitchen and bath designer from Accent Contracting, believes the use of glass, open shelves, large drawers and cabinet organizers will create an open look that is space efficient. The layout of your cabinetry can also make your kitchen appear larger. “Design the upper cabinets so they will go all the way to the ceiling or incorporate different heights,” she says. The hardware on the cabinetry will tend to favor square rather than circular. They will be simple rather than ornate and will have brushed nickel, stainless steel or oil-rubbed bronze for a color.

Countertops & Islands:

Quartz will continue to be popular in 2012 as it is aesthetically pleasing and maintenance free. According to Benning, manufacturers are producing products that look like and simulate the feel of natural stone. Other options for countertops are glass and concrete. Kitchens con’t on pg 188

Alisha Wiesshoff, showroom consultant at Ferguson Bath, Kitchen, & Lighting Showroom, adds, “Clear or glass surfaces work really well as a reflective surface and help blend together the colors of your room.” Countertops are worth the investment, because they bring out the personality of the homeowner. Islands are another aspect of countertop space that is on the rise. Benning says they will be designed to function as a workspace and dining area, such as a custom table designed to match and connect to the island. They will continue to be a focal point of the room as kitchens are becoming more transitional.

Appliances:

Stainless steel continues to be popular in kitchens. The clean contemporary look is seen with everyone from first-time homeowners to remodelers starting with the mass brands and expanding to the larger well-known brands: Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid, and Jenn-Air. Benning sees a variety of brands being used with different features and benefits. The most important thing is establishing a budget and looking in your price range. A big advancement seen in appliances is the addition of technology. Terry Lipp, Ferguson Bath, Kitchen, & Lighting Gallery, shares, “We are a society of gadgets, such as the touch-screen refrigerator and oven.” He compares the touchscreen technology to an ATM, making cooking possible for him. Another option for cooking is the convection bake oven. More cook tops are being seen as they have 188

2012 HBA of F-M Directory & Buyer’s Guide


induction heating built into them. Disguise is also popular when it comes to big appliances. Dishwashers and refrigerators are now made with the option of adding panel inserts, tricking individuals into believing the area is cabinetry. If you aren’t a fan of hiding your refrigerator and want to show it off, a nice look is the French door refrigerator. They are sleek and give you more space, decreasing the amount of clutter.

Lighting:

If there is one trend worth the money, it is LED lighting. Light-emitting diodes, compared to incandescent and fluorescent light, have several advantages. Lori Holden, lighting manager at Ferguson Bath, Kitchen, & Lighting Showroom, says, “They have an average life warranty around 18-46 years, are dimmable, recessible and give off three times the light output per watt than regular incandescent lights.” While they give off more light, they emit less heat. Holden added, “Essentially, you can put your chocolate chips under them and they won’t melt.” Another trend seen in lighting is incorporating several types of lighting into the kitchen. Benning stresses that, “Under-cabinet, in-cabinet, recessed and decorative such as pendants can be mixed and matched.” Pendent lighting is a great way to add art into your living space, while matching it to your couches, chairs and pillows. Holden advises having one pendent per every 2 feet on an island regardless of the length. They should also hang at least 6 feet off of the floor.

Sinks:

An alternative material to cast iron and stainless steel sinks has the kitchen buzzing. Quartz sinks are gaining popularity as they require very little maintenance. Wiesshoff states they are natural insulators, hard to scratch or stain, and muffle garbage disposal use. “People are always afraid to use black sinks, but instead of standing out in the kitchen, the color blends in and looks like a shadow.” One more added benefit is the lower smart divide, which makes cleaning of pots and pans with handles more efficient. You will also see a rise in hands-free touch faucets. According to Wiesshoff, they are attractive because

you can have the temperature personalized and they are virtually germ free. They also evolve with you. The sensor gets acquainted with its surroundings and learns when to turn on or off, and, if the battery dies, it can be used as a normal faucet.

Traditional from transitional:

Kitchens have made leaps and bounds, moving from tradition into a state of transition. People do not want to change something in their kitchen and be stuck with it for too long. They want the look to transition from year to year in a style that will fit their personality and budget. The kitchen is the selling point of the home because it is where today’s family functions out of. According to Benning, “It is the nucleus of the home. It is not just used to cook anymore…it is where most families spend the majority of their time.” Kayla Benning, Accent Contracting, is a member of the National Kitchen & Bath Association and has six years of experience as a kitchen and bath designer. Her specialty fields include kitchen and bath design as well as space planning. Benning

splits her time working with residential and remodeling design. Lori Holden, Ferguson Bath, Kitchen, & Lighting Showroom, has 27 years of experience focusing on new home construction and residential remodeling. She has earned her CLC (certified lighting consultant) from the American Lighting Association, which is the highest obtainable level. Alisha Wiesshoff, Ferguson Bath, Kitchen, & Lighting Showroom, is an ALA recognized lighting specialist. She has nine years of experience focusing on plumbing, lighting and appliances. Wiesshoff spends most of her time working with residential designs, but also includes commercial design. Terry Lipp has eight years of experience with Ferguson, Bath, Kitchen, & Lighting Showroom working in builder sales, and eight years of previous experience with Kohler Plumbing Company. His specialty is building sales relationships throughout the home building industry to ensure a smooth and professional experience when selecting appliance, lighting and plumbing fixtures.

Planning out your home’s curb appeal makes sense

F

by Corin Gunderson irst impressions are everything, and this certainly includes your home. Spending a majority of your budget on the home’s interior will do nothing to the balance of your home’s overall look. What looks inviting and appealing to the eye from the street will essentially draw the viewer into the home. Curb appeal, in other words, should not be forgotten. “Curb appeal is everything. If it is run-down, people will simply drive by,” says Ryan Hoss, landscape designer for Baker Nursery Gardens. Things should be neat and orderly, but interesting. Interesting can still add value to one’s home, and there is nothing wrong with showing a little personality along the way. Curb appeal also makes sense. If you plan on selling your home in the future, money should be evenly distributed throughout the entire property. “Realtors I have worked with over the years say that curb appeal has a direct value on the home,” says Gary Opp, general manager of Opp Construction. For 2012, there are a variety of exterior design trends for every type of budget and person. Here are a few categories with key highlights worth remembering:

Entertainment Space:

A comfortable living space does not exclude the outdoors. According to Hoss, the whole concept is to make the outside living area look more appealing and draw people from the inside out. Recently, people are catching on and more kitchen accessories are showing up outside of the home. “Built-in grills, sinks, fridges, bars, fireplaces and water features are very popular,” says Opp. It is, however, an area that needs to be budgeted for.

Hoss, some of the more expensive entertainment spaces can be close to $10,000. “People need to sort their priorities. Yes, they may like the idea of it, but everything always looks nice in pictures,” he says. While every feature may not be feasible for most individuals, fireplaces and fire pits are a trend that is on fire. Fireplaces attract those willing to pay on the higher end, while fire pits are more affordable with those on a budget. There are a few standard, but important, procedures that must be attended to first, before buying a fireplace or fire pit. “You need to look at the fire code and distinguish how far the required distance it must be from your house. Also, keep them away from trees,” says Hoss.

Patios:

Every homeowner has different needs and uses for his or her outside living space. Many are choosing to build porches, decks, or patios. It is completely the homeowner’s decision where to build the project, but it should be in a place where it will get the most use. Hoss suggests asking what the main purpose is for the end project. Is it for privacy, entertainment, screening of the sun, basking in the sun, etc.? Functionality and practicality are important. People do, however, make mistakes. One of the most common mishaps while building porches, patios, or desks is underestimating the time it will take to build. 194

“TV shows make it look easy and in most cases are misleading when it comes to the effort involved,” says Opp. Another oversight is building the project too small or too big, according to Hoss.

Sheds:

Sheds often look big, bulky and boring. They are however, just as important as every other aspect outside of the home. Hoss gives an interesting take on sheds to make them backyard décor rather than a building in the corner. “Make it look like a playhouse in the front. Include a porch with plants around it and have the back half dedicated to storage and lawn supplies.” Opp also adds that windows, doors and siding can make a big difference. Don’t be shy; let your creativity shine through.

Landscaping:

Maintenance is everything when it comes to your yard. According to Hoss, it is important for your backyard to last as long as possible with the least amount of upkeep, all while enhancing the architectural value of your home. “Replace overgrown plants, prune existing healthy plants, keep your lawn green and weedfree,” Opp says. “Replace poorly installed edging and freshen up your ground cover.” When it comes to trees, shrubs, plants and flowers, less is more, because everything will grow. Hoss gives two tips to remember when it comes time for planting. Curb appeal on pg 196

First, space your plants and trees with enough room in between for growth. Second, plan ahead. “You don’t want something that starts out small in front of your window, then have it grow and block your view,” says Hoss. According to Opp, if you are considering concrete edging or landscape curbing around the growth, know that concrete edgers are easier to adjust if needed, whereas, landscape curbing is permanent.

Now, get started:

Everything you plan is a lifestyle choice, so weigh the pros and cons of your curb appeal. It not only needs to be appealing to your eyes, but also to your family, friends, neighbors and strangers. “Start with a master plan that phases over time to fit your budget,” says Opp. “Begin with the basics, seek good advice, use quality products, keep it simple, design in elements that you can use year round and enjoy!” Hoss finds it necessary for homeowners to find what compliments them and their priorities. One budget-friendly option he offers at Baker Nursery Gardens is a free consultation as long as people bring in pictures and measurements. He gives you the ideas and you get to decide who will tackle the project. The bottom line is: plan before you build. By looking at all options, time and money will be saved. You can create an outside oasis that will appeal to you and your budget. “The buzz word is a ‘stay-cation’ where yards give you that get-away feeling,” says Opp. Ryan Hoss is a landscape designer at Baker Nursery Gardens. With 40 years of experience he does both commercial and residential landscaping. Gary Opp is the general manager at Opp Construction. With 25 years of experience, he does design and installation of concrete paving, stone pavement, wall retention, irrigation systems and landscaping. Opp currently resides in Fargo where he works with residential and commercial design.

Consider Energy Star rating for new home construction

A

by Krista Mund s the nation moves toward higher energy efficiency, its goals are to reduce pollution and slow down consumption of nonrenewable resources. The added benefit for consumers and homeowners is cost savings associated with less fuel and water. Energy Star is a program that has been around for years, indicating a higher level of energy efficiency in new homes. To earn that rating, a home must meet guidelines for energy efficiency set by the Environmental Protection Agency. They are typically 20-30 percent more efficient than standard homes. Some homes on the Home Builders Association of F-M’s Parade of Homes have earned the Energy Star rating, and it is noted on their listings in event magazines. An Energy Star qualified home can include a variety of energyefficient features: • Effective Insulation - Properly installed and inspected insulation in floors, walls, and attics ensures even temperatures throughout the house, reduced energy use and increased comfort. • High-Performance Windows - Energy-efficient windows employ advanced technologies, such as protective coatings and improved frames, to help keep heat in during winter and out during summer. These windows also block damaging ultraviolet sunlight www.energystar.gov that can discolor www.kwh.com carpets and www.togetherwesave.com furnishings. www.xcelenergy.com • Tight Construction and Ducts - Sealing holes and cracks in the home’s “envelope” and in heating and cooling duct systems helps reduce drafts, moisture, dust, pollen and noise. A tightly sealed home improves comfort and indoor air quality while reducing utility and maintenance. • Efficient Heating and Cooling Equipment - In addition to using less energy to operate, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems can be quieter, reduce indoor humidity and improve the overall comfort of the home. When properly installed into a tightly sealed home, this equipment won’t have to work as hard to heat and cool the home. • Efficient Products - Homes may also be equipped with qualified products — lighting fixtures, compact fluorescent bulbs, ventilation fans and appliances such as refrigerators, dishwashers and washing machines.

Green ideas for home interiors

G

by Corin Gunderson reen building has some individuals from the Midwest asking, “What and why?” According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency website, www.epa.gov, green building is designed to protect “human health and the natural environment.” This includes: “Efficiency using energy, water and other resources; protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity; and reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation.” To a few local businesses the term green means: • “Using materials and byproducts that are environmentally friendly,” says Reed Stigen, Home Heating, Plumbing, & A/C, Inc., president. • “Reducing the amount of waste or consumption by using products designed to be much more efficient,” says Jessica Grondahl, builder consultant from Nodak Stores. • “Selling products from manufacturers who protect the environment, replenish it, and recycle where they can and make products that are healthier for the consumer,” says Marcus Roman, Floor To Ceiling Carpet One owner and president. Within the last few years, consumers have become much more environmentally conscious. They want to purchase products from suppliers that are sustainable, efficient and environmentally friendly. “I think that it [green] is coming… but slowly. This is very typical of the Midwest as we always jump on the trends late. Green is important, but not like it is on the coasts,” says Roman.

Appliances

Grondahl’s main task at Nodak Stores is to help home builders and new homeowners select the best appliances to complete their kitchens and laundry rooms. She sees many consumers coming to her with concerns about the amount of energy used by appliances inside of the home, but recent developments within appliance technology has made customers happier. “New appliances are up to 70 percent more energy efficient, even when compared to appliances made just three years ago,” says Grondahl. Also, energy-efficient appliances don’t cost much more than appliances without green living. You get the added benefit of using a lot less electricity and up to 75 percent less water. Consumers will see the value to themselves and the environment as they switch over to energyefficient sources. Another added benefit of energy-efficient appliances is the maintenance requirement. Sustainable products require the same amount of care as traditional appliances, sometimes even less. Energy-efficient appliances such as refrigerators, won’t have the standard coils in the

back, and dishwashers involve less maintenance when it comes to the pumps fitting properly says Grondahl. Alleviating water consumption in homes is an issue addressed by using Energy Star-rated dishwashers and washers. “Energy Star-rated dishwashers can save up to 15 gallons of water per load. Within a day, you can waste 30 gallons of water from washing dishes by hand,” says Grondahl. “Front-load washers versus top-load washers can save up to 75 percent more water per load, if they are energy star rated. Old washers used up to 40 gallons of water, whereas now, it’s 12.5 - 15 gallons,” says Grondahl. The worst environmental risk when it comes to appliances, says Grondahl, is dryers not working properly. If they aren’t drying your clothes within one load’s time, it’s time to get a new one.

Flooring

Roman and the rest of his employees at Floor to Ceiling Carpet One address sustainability in the kitchen. Cabinets, flooring and countertops are all available in green materials for customers. “Going green can add longevity, but purchasing a product from a supplier that protects the environment is also an option that would not add any cost,” says Roman. Roman also stresses that sustainable products would require the same care or even less than traditional products. “Any of the ceramic products are very easy to take care of and the new technology in carpet makes the ones using recycled material and/or corn byproduct easier to maintain,” says Roman. Within the cabinet, flooring and countertop industry, anytime is a good time to go green. Distinguishing sustainable products is also getting easier. Anything that is natural or uses recycled material is a good start. Natural products would include: ceramic, cork, bamboo, granite, quartz, slate and marble. Recycling is traditionally done mostly with carpets says Roman. The greenest architectural surface in circulation right now, though, would be ceramic or tile.

Countertops

Roman from Floor to Ceiling Carpet One also says, “Going green with counter-top space means using natural products, rather then recyclable products.” Natural products are found in all kinds of options, colors and designs. “Granite, even quartz is being used, and we even see some tops with wood and concrete,” says Roman. Granite is a hard, natural stone composed of the minerals quartz and feldspar in conjunction with a few other minerals, such as biotite and hornblende. 200

Quartz or “engineered stone” is the use of natural crushed stone and a resin binder. They are made to mimic the look of natural stone. While there typically is not a difference in materials as far as burning, scratching or staining more easily than others, granite is one surface that needs more attention. “Granite countertops will need maintenance because, unlike quartz’s non-porous surface, granite is porous, so you will need additional sealers,” says Roman. Since quartz is less porous, there is less of a chance for water, food or bacteria to be trapped under the surface.

Heating, Plumbing, & A/C

Stigen from Home Heating, Plumbing & A/C, Inc., believes insulation and windows should be top priorities in our Midwest climate, because they deal with energy needed to heat and cool the home. Low-energy windows use argon-gas fill or multiple panes to transfer less heat. “Less energy means less fossil fuels used,” says Stigen. After you have considered insulation, look into geothermal heating, especially if using propane or fuel oil. Geothermal is using the heat from the earth to heat or cool your surroundings. According to Home Heating’s website, www.homegeothermalhtg. com, “Fluid is circulated through plastic pipes buried beneath the earth’s surface. During the winter, the fluid collects heat from the earth and carries it through the system and into the building. During the summer, the system reverses itself to cool the building by pulling heat from the building Green con’t on next pg

and carrying it through the system and placing it in the ground.” The website also addresses geothermal heating as green, because it doesn’t destroy “earth-bound materials or pollute the environment.” The Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency endorse geothermal heating as “the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly” system available. Another green option that saves on water consumption in our homes is grey water systems; they can be used for irrigation and other uses. “Grey water is water from sinks, showers and washing machines (not toilets) typically filtered through a medium and stored in a tank for subsequent use,” says Stigen. Few people consider this option in our area, according to Stigen. Typically, all water used goes directly to the sewer system.

Where to begin

Do the research. Right now is a great time to find sustainable products or alternatives to almost any home improvement idea or appliance. All you have to do is search the web to find what you suits your budget says Roman. Calling your local retailers is the next step. “Buying locally makes sense. There are less channels for the consumer, and local businesses care. That in itself is green,” says Grondahl. You can also help firsthand in 202

the green process by recycling material. Nodak Stores takes any appliance that you don’t want free of charge if you bought an appliance to replace the existing one. Otherwise, the store charges $10 to pick up the appliance. Grondahl says. Instead of going to a landfill, the appliances go to Canada for recycling. If you have old carpet that you want to get rid of, Floor to Ceiling Carpet One might have a solution for you in the future. “We are researching a plan to have a dumpster in our back lot for a drop-off where carpet can be taken back to the mill for recycling,” says Roman. With that being said, many of the local businesses are supportive suppliers of green products and services. They are ready and looking forward to helping you transform your home into one that is sustainable for years to come. Grondahl has been helping home builders and new home owners select appliances and electronics for five years. Roman has been in the business for 27 years, specializing in flooring with an emphasis in commercial design. Roman graduated from Minnesota State Univeristy - Moorhead in 1984 with a double major in marketing and management. Stigen has been principal owner of Home Heating & Plumbing & A/C, Inc., since 1998.
