When is the best time to replace your exterior doors?
If your home’s exterior doors are broken or in dire need of repair, then ideally, you should replace them as soon as possible. The last thing you want is to compromise the safety of your home.
However, if they don’t require immediate replacement, then when is the best time? Actually, we feel like winter is the most popular season to replace the exterior doors in your home. You may be a little confused about why we mention winter since that is the last season you think of when talking about home renovations. Here are a few reasons why you should replace your doors in the winter:
The Christmas season. Referred to as “the most wonderful time of the year,” often brings out the best in us. It’s the season of giving, not only of gifts but of charity and kindness as well. It’s a time when individuals and businesses alike share what they have with those in need. Just like you, we at Atlantic Millwork take pride in our local community and strive to make it a better place.
Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry CELEBRATES MARVIN’S CONTINUED EVOLUTION
Marvin unveils new name, logo and product collections
Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry is excited to announce changes to one of its most-trusted company partners – Marvin Windows and Doors. Known for a spirit of innovation and commitment to people, Marvin Windows and Doors is evolving to design and build better ways of living. New changes that reflect this evolution include combining the brand with Integrity Windows and Doors to be known simply as Marvin moving forward. Additionally, Marvin has reorganized its product portfolio and developed several internal initiatives to support continued product introductions that are truly customer-centric.
“As people’s expectations of home change, we must also grow and evolve to bring beauty into the everyday while striving to simplify and enhance people’s lives,” said Paul Marvin, CEO of Marvin. “The changes we’re sharing today are exciting, including a new brand identity, but they’re a remodel. The foundation of our company – the people, exceptional quality and beautiful design of our products – all remain intact and stronger than ever.”
As a proud dealer of Marvin since 1991, Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry is looking forward to incorporating the new changes from the company over the next 3 months.
“Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry deeply values our partnership with Marvin and the opportunities the company brings our employees and customers,” said Vincent T. McDowell, Director of Sales Marketing “We are excited to implement these changes into our dealership to better serve our customers and help bring people’s visions to life.”
We are proud to announce the launch of our new website and company logo as part of the ongoing evolution of the Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry brand.
Last year, we started considering new ways to use web technologies to support and expand our dedication to customer service. The first step involved updating our branding. Since 1991, Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry has been commonly known throughout the industry as an established and reputable company. However, we have many new resident and businesses in Sussex County who may not be aware of our longevity and experience. So we decided to use our inaugural year in our new logo to show our dedication to providing great service for the past 28 years. Next, we developed a new website that reflects current standards and offers a more robust platform for user experience, knowledge, and feedback.
Replacing windows and doors can seem stressful—but it doesn’t have to be. Whether you’re unsure if you need to replace or wondering what to do next, we’re here to help you understand each step and make your replacement project a success.
Marvin Windows and Doors has launched a new product line, MODERN. MODERN is a system of windows, doors and options that enable builders and architects to achieve their vision with pure modern design aesthetics and category-leading performance.
About this time last year, I was researching forecasts on what trends would look like for 2018. As you know it’s always exciting to see what’s coming in the new year, but the funny thing is, there’s not really a hard stop and start between the trends on a calendar basis. Instead, what we see is a flow that carries through, with slight nuances that change the landscape year over year. So before we get into what 2019 will bring, let’s take a look back at what’s been at the top of trends in 2018.
In the past decade, minimalism in interior design has noticed a surge in popularity.
The reasons for this are simple (and understandable): with the chaos that people face in everyday life a home should be a place for rest.
And, let’s be honest, minimalism is as relaxing as it gets.
Deriving from Scandinavian design, the minimalist approach is all about using the bare minimum of furniture and decor and an inventive use of textures and shapes. Combined with a lot of light, the empty, clean space that minimalist furniture provides, gives a feeling of ease and comfort.
If you are one of the minimalism lovers (and I bet that you are, since you’re reading this) – keep on reading as I’ll share a couple of tips on how you can use natural stones to easily achieve a minimalist look in your home.

About Wendy Kodak
Kodak comes to Atlantic Millwork & Cabinetry from Long Beach Island, N.J. She enjoyed many years vacationing in the Lewes area before actually making the move. She brings with her almost 20 years of construction experience in the field of commercial aquatic recreation, as an office manager and field/design artist. Construction projects included one in Rehoboth as well as in Wildwood and Ocean City, N.J. Her background in cabinetry started in the early ‘80s with Merillat Cabinetry, where she worked for eight years side-by-side with the sales team expediting orders, purchasing laminate countertops and verifying inventories. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to join Atlantic Millwork and Cabinetry where she hopes to assist many new homeowners with making their dream kitchen a reality.
Before starting a remodeling project, every homeowner has a crucial calculation to make: will the project’s costs be made up for by the increased value of their home? After all, putting thousands into a renovation that will have little-to-no impact when you list your home isn’t always the best idea.
One area where homeowners can get the most bang-for-their-buck is the kitchen. That is because future buyers see the kitchen as central to homeownership. A small, outdated kitchen could be a deal breaker for some buyers, leaving you on the outside looking in of an otherwise hot market.
Whether you’re looking to boost your home’s future value, or just create a space you can enjoy in the present, a kitchen remodel is a good idea.
