Even Better Than The Real Thing (MS) - Today’s homeowners are faced with an abundance of home-improvement materials and products - more than ever before. While this wide variety provides infinite options for showcasing your taste and meeting home-improvement budgets, it can leave you wondering which items to choose to realize the most reward for your investment. What you may notice on the shelves of your local hardware store or home-supply center is a growing number of products made from composite materials. The reasoning is twofold. First, many of our natural resources, like timber, are being quickly depleted. That’s why home and garden product manufacturers have looked to alternative materials, which provide durability and aesthetic appeal that exceeds natural products. These items run the gamut from siding and shingles to mouldings and exterior decorative accents to decking materials. Second, manufacturers have learned that composites are more durable in the long run than natural materials. While these items may cost a little bit more initially, their strength, durability and ease of use make them a wiser purchase. When making improvements to your home and landscape, consider these items, which are both attractive and versatile: • Flowerpots and planters: While stone, terra cotta and other natural materials can be beautiful, they can also be heavy and costly. Plastic resin products, which mimic the look of materials like wood, stone, or ceramic, are often lightweight and durable. Simply move planters around your garden to create a space that’s inviting.
• Shingles and siding: Many homeowners like the rustic look of cedar shingles or siding, and accompanying trellises, cupolas and mouldings. However, over time, wood siding products are susceptible to the elements, especially if you live in high-humidity areas or close to the ocean. Composite materials offer the look of wood on your home’s exterior, but with little or no maintenance required. • Edging and garden products: Create the look of stone or wood garden accents by using resin stepping “stones” and edging material that look like the real thing but are much more durable and flexible. What’s more, you won’t contend with moisture issues or attract insects when you use resin in lieu of wood materials near the ground and around the perimeter of your home. • Decks: Traditional decks have been made from a variety of wood products. However, in order to stand up to weather conditions and the test of time, wood needs to be preserved with potentially dangerous chemicals and requires annual maintenance, including staining and waterproofing. Composite decking materials such as fiberon® decking, look like real wood, but don’t require the work and maintenance involved with a wood deck. These materials are formed from the toughest composites that won’t show wear patterns or fade over time, which eliminates the sanding and staining involved with wood decks. Plus, no splitting, warping, cupping or rotting will occur with these products. What’s more, composite materials won’t play home to insects and other animal life, like birds or rodents who may burrow through wood products. fiberon® composites are made from recycled material. Not only do these decks last longer, but using recycled materials helps reduce negative impact on the environment. They are also visually appealing. The company offers a wide variety of styles and colors that emulate the beauty and prestige of real wood, including tropical hardwoods such as ipe, cambara, cumaru and Brazilian cherry without depleting the natural rainforests in which these trees grow. When it comes to outdoor recreational areas and outfitting your backyard, consider simulated materials, which may be better than the real thing in terms of durability, safety and ease of use. Remember, color, quality and looks vary among composite manufacturers, so shop around!

(MS) - Warm weather is arriving and homeowners across America are turning their attention outdoors. Pushing the physical boundaries of a house beyond exterior walls is a common desire as people look to take advantage of patios, decks and lawns during the warm-weather season. Improving the look and utility of a backyard can be simple. Here are three tips to consider: 1. Look at the backyard and patio as an outdoor room. Accessorize with furniture, gazebos, plants, privacy panels and decorative touches that extend the warmth and personality of a home outward, giving additional living space. 2. Add a hot tub. They are a great way for family and friends to come together, socialize, relax and revive. Hot tubs are less expensive and offer greater hydrotherapy options than inground pools. They are popular with people of all ages.
AUGUST 12 - 25, 2012
3. Delight all the senses. Don’t forget to consider complementary elements such as water features, outdoor stereos and televisions that really help to create ambiance and set the right mood for guests. Current technology blends well with the outdoors and provides attractive, subtle accents that are wonderful for entertaining. “Today, we see people combining many of these elements,” says William Smelley, marketing manager of Sundance Spas, the world’s largest manufacturer of acrylic hot tubs. “Hot tubs are equipped with features such as soothing waterfalls and top-quality stereos that can be enjoyed regardless of whether or not someone is in the spa. In fact, we’ve found that people take advantage of these luxury entertainment features during dinner parties and backyard barbecues.” “Families want intimate spaces both inside and outside their homes where they can retreat from the outside world and connect with people in small groups,” reports Erica Moir, vice president of Jacuzzi Hot Tubs. “Many homeowners invest significant time in designing their outdoor rooms. They select premium furnishings and materials while seamlessly integrating larger elements such as spas, gazebos, trees and landscaping.” To learn more about how you can transform your backyard in time for a season of entertaining, visit www.jacuzzi.com or www.sundancespas.com. -Prepared By The Times Leader Advertising Department

Purchasing a home involves a roller coaster of emotions, a pile of paperwork and nerves of steel. Beginning the process without a cursory course in home buying is not a wise venture. Here are steps along the way to expect on the way to your final destination -- home ownership. Step 1: Affordability: Before you visit a real estate agent, decide on a price range. The best way to do so is to sit down with a financial consultant or mortgage broker who will weigh your current debt against your income and savings. Step 2: Finding a home: Finding your prospective home can be a time-consuming process. Consult with a real estate broker, who will have current listings and up-to-date information, or set out on your own search by visiting open houses. Step 3: Making an offer: In most states, you’ll be required to make a formal offer on the house in the form of a written contract. It will state your intended offer price as well as information on a down payment and proposed closing date. Step 4: Securing a mortgage: Now that you know your purchase price, find a lender who will agree to lend you the money. Shop around for the best offer from several financial institutions, keeping in mind the current interest rate. Step 5: Contact an attorney: You’ll likely want to contact an attorney who will guide you through the legalities that will ensue. (The seller probably has an attorney working for him.) A lawyer can review the contract and advocate for items in your favor -- like improvements that need to be made, or appliances you’d like to keep. Your attorney will also facilitate contact between the seller, so you won’t need to be involved so thoroughly in the process. Step 6: Home inspection: A licensed professional can best assess if the home is structurally sound and built according to code. Should anything be illegal, or just not up to par, the inspector will include it in his report. Step 7: Walk-through: In most cases, you’ll be able to walk through the prospective home right before the closing to make sure the house is in the agreed upon condition. Step 8: The closing:You’ll be required to sign paperwork and present fees, called closing costs. Examples of closing costs include: down payment, property taxes, attorney’s fee, points, title insurance, clerical/processing costs, proof of homeowner’s insurance After you’ve signed what seems like a million documents, and initialed a million more, you will receive the keys to your new home. Congratulations on being a homeowner! -Prepared By The Times Leader Advertising Department
