Planning a home improvement project? How to hire a quality contractoryear-round (BPT) - Dreaming of home improvement projects in the New Year? You’re not alone - many homeowners are deciding what improvement project to tackle next. As the housing market continues to strengthen, homeowners buying or selling homes are focused on curb appeal or updating new spaces, which makes now a perfect time for remodeling. In fact, a majority of U.S. Homeowners (75.5 percent) are planning one or more home improvement projects by early 2014, according to a recent HIRI Sentiment Tracking Study. “Home improvement projects were on the rise in 2013 and I believe the numbers will continue to increase in 2014,â€? says Dennis Stemmle, president of ServiceLive, a free online home improvement service that connects people to quality contractors. “Hiring an experienced contractor helps homeowners get the job done ULJKWWKHÂżUVWWLPHJLYLQJWKHPSHDFHRIPLQG and avoiding additional costs associated with mistakes.â€? Stemmle says hiring a contractor can be nervewracking for homeowners, who have heard too many horror stories of contractors abandoning half-completed projects, doing inferior work, or grossly misjudging costs. To avoid contractor WURXEOHDQGWRÂżQGDUHSXWDEOHFRQWUDFWRUZKR will save you time and money, Stemmle suggests you ask these six questions before you make a hiring decision: 1. What is your business history? A contractor needs to have the proper licenses and permits, so be sure to verify the person entering your home is legally able to complete the project. Also ask how long the company has been in business and where it is located. If a company is inexperienced or located far away, \RXPLJKWÂżQGWKHVHUYLFHLQDGHTXDWH7RVDYH time and make it more convenient for consumers, ServiceLive offers a six-point background check on each of its contractors so customers FDQIHHOFRQÂżGHQWDERXWZKRWKH\KLUH

3. Do you have references? Always ask for references. Make phone calls and visit past projects that are similar to the one you are planning. This is a great way to learn if there have been any past issues with the contractor. 4. Who will be working at my house?

2. How much is this going to cost?

When it comes to hiring a professional for their project, 67 percent of homeowners surveyed by Houzz & Home rated a “personality I can work with� as being very important.-Many homeowners are surprised that the contractor they interviewed and hired isn’t the person actually doing the work. Ask who will be working at the house and if jobs are subcontracted. ServiceLive, for example, vets contractors down to the individual worker so that there are no surprises.

“We’re seeing increasing demand for rift-sawn white oak cabinets,â€? says Brian Yahn, sales manager of Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry in Schaefferstown, Penn. The reasons for rift-sawing oak are not just practical (it produces very stable boards that are especially resistant to warping and shrinking, an important consideration in moist kitchen environments) but also aesthetic. It results in a distinctive grain - tight, straight and even - that takes neutral or light stains exceptionally well. “This is not your grandmother’s oak,â€? Yahn continues. “Today it’s creating kitchens that are sleek and modern but also warm and inviting.â€? Treated this way, the venerable hardwood gives contemporary homeowners the best of both worlds - cabinetry that’s cleanOLQHGHIÂżFLHQWDQGGXUDEOH\HWVWLOO exudes a natural, organic quality.

Not as austere as the minimalist look that was trending a few years ago, lightand-simple refers to the design as ZHOODVWKHÂżQLVKRUFRORURIWKH hardwood cabinetry: shaker-style recessed-panel doors in blond beech or white-painted maple are the classic example of this turn toward a bright, uncluttered kitchen environment. The trend toward simplicity and understatement can be seen in more elaborately embellished kitchen cabinetry too. While add-ons such as carved feet,

undercounter corbels, and crown PROGLQJVRUGHFRUDWLYHÀRXULVKHV like turned legs, raised panels, and fancy cutouts are still in demand, they are noticeably more constrained and smaller-scaled than they would have been a decade ago.�Homeowners don’t want decorative detailing that’s over the top,� Yahn notes. Carving is quieter and less ostentatious; lines are simpler and less convoluted. Another way Americans are making the kitchen an even more central part of their homes is by installing cabinetry that looks like ¿QHIXUQLWXUH7KLVVW\OHFDQUDQJH from totally freestanding pieces to kitchen islands that resemble WDEOHVWR¿WWHGFDELQHWVWKDWXVH

Many homeowners are using this strategy when faced with the classic kitchen layout in which a central island is surrounded by walls of cabinetry: “We’re often asked for a dark-stained cherry or black walnut island and a perimeter of white-painted maple cabinets,â€? Yahn says. And of course it’s always possible to highlight an individual piece or a particular section of cabinetry by using a distinctive stain or paint color. No matter what style of kitchen you favor, from the warmly traditional to the sleekly modern, American hardwoods in all their diversity will allow you to realize that vision perfectly.

How to maintain your deck for outdoor entertaining year-round (BPT) - Expanding livable space using decks and patios is a top home improvement trend, EXWWRGD\¶VKRPHRZQHUVDUHQ¶WVDWLV¿HGZLWK limiting entertaining outdoors to the warmer months. With a few smart updates, they’re creating spaces that make outdoor entertaining possible all year long. Breathe new life into your existing deck and create a space that can be used for entertaining year-round with a few expert tips. “Winter doesn’t mean retreating indoors when you have a well-maintained deck with features that keep guests comfortable,” says Mark Clement, host of MyFixitUpLife radio show, licensed contractor and contributor for Professional Deck Builder and DIY Network. “Wood’s natural beauty enhances outdoor entertaining all year long, meaning your deck is the ideal location for impressive entertaining, even when the weather turns chilly.” Clement and the experts at the Softwood Lumber Board offer a few tips for maintaining a wood deck and creating an oasis for entertaining even during cooler weather: 1. Schedule an annual cleaning Wood is a natural material with inherent qualities that blend well with the outdoor environment, but it’s important to conduct regular maintenance. Cleaning solutions and wood brighteners are good options to restore the natural beauty of your wood deck. Be sure to read the container to make sure the cleaner is appropriate for the wood species used for your deck. There are generally three types of cleaners: chlorine bleach solutions kill mold and mildew, oxygen bleaches remove mildew and help restore weathered gray wood, and oxalic acid-based solutions are ideal brighteners when mildew is not a concern. A simple garden hose with sprayer is best to rinse the cleaner from your deck.- Some prefer to use a powerwasher which can be a good way to rid your deck of grime, and some machines even have reservoirs for holding mild detergents. When using a powersprayer on your wood deck, set it at the lowest pressure possible, around 500 psi.

2. Check surfaces, structure and fasteners Even in more temperate regions, changes in temperature can stress wood and metal fasteners, so deck maintenance is important no matter where you live. Check for and replace wood that is cracked or warped, paying special attention to any areas that tend to remain damp or are regularly exposed to water. Check that deck railings are sound by giving them a solid push, there shouldn’t be any give. Checking your deck’s hardware is important WRRSDUWLFXODUO\WKHÀDVKLQJ)ODVKLQJLV the metal or plastic guard that directs water away from sensitive areas, usually where the deck and the house meet. Be sure to give all nails, screws and anchors a once-over too, and tighten or replace where necessary. 3. Arrange furniture thoughtfully and add touches of comfort Patio furniture keeps guests comfortable so they linger longer. Furniture with seat cushions or other padding are warmer options on cold days. Remember, when preparing for

year-long outdoor entertaining, it’s important to arrange furniture to encourage conversation ZKLOHPDLQWDLQLQJWKHÀRZRIWUDI¿FLQDQG out of the house. To stave off the chill, especially when entertaining in the evening after the sun has gone down, it’s crucial to keep your outdoor space comfortable, warm and well-lit. Add throws to furniture for guests to use and incorporate a ¿UHSLWRUFKLPQHDWRWKHVSDFHWRNHHSJXHVWV toasty - these items also create a wonderful ambiance that beautifully contrasts the winter season. -A few strings of lights or strategically placed lanterns make an outdoor area more attractive while adding an element of safety, so be sure to light railings and steps as necessary. “Wood is a versatile and affordable material that, when used in a patio space, provides the perfect backdrop for an amazing outdoor space,” says Clement. “With the right maintenance and a few thoughtful touches, a wood deck can serve as a gathering place for parties or a reprieve for a cozy night at home with loved ones any day throughout the year.”

Itchin’ to update your kitchen?

The Home Journal, February 2014

Five steps to create the kitchen of your dreams (BPT) - Remodeling the kitchen. When you decide to tackle this daunting undertaking, you want to do it right. And, you’re not alone. Forty-nine percent of homeowners plan to completely gut their existing kitchen and start with a clean state, according to a recent survey by Regardless of the scope of your project, if you’re itchin’ to update your NLWFKHQIROORZWKHVH¿YHVWHSVWRGHVLJQWKH space you’ve been dreaming about.

Step 3: Research and plan 6RXUFHVIRULGHDVDQGLQVSLUDWLRQDUHLQÂżQLWH - especially online. Sites like Pinterest and Houzz provide endless eye candy and design concepts for your new kitchen space; Houzz can even provide recommendations of local professionals to contact. To visualize a few of the upgrades you’re considering - not to mention touch and feel them - visit a local kitchen showroom as they have a number of vignettes and “roomsâ€? designed throughout. Magazine articles and features can also provide valuable how-to information and design advice. Just be sure to save any favorite ideas in one place, making everything easily accessible when it’s time to get started.

Step 1: Create a budget Before picking up a single tool or seeking contractor recommendations from friends, it’s important to determine how much you’re willing to spend to achieve your ideal kitchen. Whether needing basic upgrades or a complete remodel, setting your budget will help to create a realistic plan from the start. There are a wide range of impactful updates to change the look of your space no matter what the price tag.

Step 4: Determine your approach

Step 2: Think about what you need (and what you want) Take a step back and think about how you use the kitchen. Are you an avid baker who needs more counter space for rolling out confections? Do you like to make homemade pizza and the thought of a stone oven makes you drool? No matter what your dream space looks like, there’s one area that everyone should update - the kitchen faucet. Because it sees so much use on a daily basis, think about ways to make tasks easier, like installing a new pulldown faucet. From preparing meals and washing dishes, to watering SODQWVDQG¿OOLQJSLWFKHUV\RXœOOTXLFNO\QRtice the difference made by this simple update. For a contemporary look, try the new Moen Align or STo pulldown faucets. Both bring modern style and superior performance with a two-function pulldown spray wand that allows \RXWRVZLWFKWKHZDWHUÀRZIURPDHUDWHG stream to spray with the push of a button.

Beyond a new faucet, here are some of the most popular - and most desired - items for the kitchen, according to the Houzz survey: * Fifty percent said a chef’s stove was their dream appliance 6HYHQW\¿YHSHUFHQWRIUHVSRQGHQWVZDQW soft, neutral colors in the kitchen 6L[W\¿YHSHUFHQWDUHORRNLQJWRFRRUGLQDWH with stainless steel appliances * A custom pantry is the most popular kitchen storage item, followed by a utensil drawer * Granite is still the most desired countertop material

Will you hire a pro or do most of the work yourself? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to change the layout or remove walls in the kitchen, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to work with a professional contractor. Rewiring electrical or adding new light sources are also MREVEHVWOHIWWRDFHUWLÂżHGHOHFWULFLDQ<RXFDQ ÂżQGDQXPEHURISURIHVVLRQDOVRQOLQHIURP sites like Angieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s List or Houzz, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to read reviews from previous customers, and in some cases, view samples of their ZRUN,I\RXÂśUHDQDYLG',<HU\RXPD\IHHO FRPIRUWDEOHLQVWDOOLQJQHZFDELQHWVĂ&#x20AC;RRULQJ and countertops. But there are certain projects, like the demo, painting and installation of a new faucet that anyone - and any skill level can easily tackle. Step 5: Get to work If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begun working on your kitchen project yet, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone; 68 percent of Houzz respondents havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t started construction, either. But with the perfect plan and a list of updates to incorporate, it will be simple to create your dream kitchen space.

:DOOPRXQWHGVOLGLQJGRRUµUHÀHFWV¶DJHQLXVGHVLJQVROXWLRQ (BPT) - Like many couples who share a bathroom, one Arizona couple was frustrated by the space that was compromised by a swinging bathroom door. The open door swung into the bathroom vanity and took up too much space in a very traditional bathroom.

The 2610F wall mount hardware features a heavy walledaluminum door track that is precision extruded for smooth operation and can hold up to 200 pounds of door weight. The convex rail design provides single-point hanger wheel contact for low “feather touch” roll resistance. And designers and do-it-yourselfers love the box track design which prevents rollers from jumping the track.

The couple turned to Board by Board, an Arizona kitchen and bath design company, to give their bathroom more space and an updated, clean design. Board by Board created a design that would incorporate a sleek, contemporary double mirrored sliding door with Wall Mount Hardware. “The interior wall next to the swinging door had a built-in vacuum system that prevented us from using a traditional pocket door,” says Christie Board, kitchen and bath designer. “I had seen wall-mounted doors in magazines and have always loved the idea of incorporating this design into a remodel project.”

Board has used the Wall Mount Hardware a few times since this bathroom design and mentioned that she is getting ready to do this in her own home. However, Board is going to go with the exposed wall mount, rather than the valance because she wants a more contemporary look. “I have used Johnson Hardware products in home remodeling projects and have always had fantastic results,” says Board. “This was a costeffective, space-saving, simple solution and I will continue to use this brand in the future.”

Cold weather pushes rodents into homes (BPT) - With the holidays over for another year, you may think you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any more surprise guests until spring. Think again. Nearly a third (29 percent) of Americans have had a â&#x20AC;&#x153;visitâ&#x20AC;? from one of winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s least-welcome â&#x20AC;&#x153;guestsâ&#x20AC;? - rodents - according to a survey from the National Pest Management Association. In fact, these pests enter approximately 21 million homes each winter, and nearly half of the infestations occur in the fall and winter months.

Renovation loans give homebuyers an edge in a competitive marketbuy (BPT) - Just a year ago homebuyers could choose from a bounty of properties on the market. Today things are starkly different. In many locations throughout the United States, inventory of homes for sale is at historic lows, creating a sellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market where multiple buyers get into bidding wars over move-in-ready homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Move-in-ready homes may be selling like hotcakes, but older homes or damaged properties are often passed over,â&#x20AC;? says Margaret Kelly, CEO with RE/MAX. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a big opportunity for smart buyers who are willing to overlook cosmetic or other imperfections.â&#x20AC;? If buyers can look beyond aesthetic characteristics like paint color, hardware DQGĂ&#x20AC;RRUFRYHULQJVWKH\PD\GLVFRYHU a diamond in the rough, especially if the home is in the neighborhood where they prefer to live. For example, if they like the overall design of a particular home, but the kitchen is straight out of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s and the deck needs major repairs, a renovation loan can help them purchase the property while upgrading the kitchen and outdoor space exactly how they want them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many homebuyers are surprised you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a ton of money in the bank to fund improvements,â&#x20AC;? explains Kelly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A special type of loan called a renovation loan is ideal for these types of homes because it covers both the cost of the mortgage and repairs.â&#x20AC;? Renovation loans can also help buyers who want to purchase in a particular neighborhood where most home prices exceed their budget. Properties that need work are typically listed at a lower cost and often go unsold, creating an opportunity for people willing to make improvements.
