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.
Is it really time for replacement? Some signs, such as condensation or cosmetic damage, might not need replacement at all and are actually perfectly normal. Others, like water stains and wood rot, need immediate replacement.

We’ll get started with a high-level look at basic choices like window/door styles and materials (wood, extruded aluminum or Ultrex fiberglass), and then we’ll guide you through design options – like wood stains, colors, hardware finishes, shades, and screens.

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.
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 A small, outdated kitchen could be a deal breaker for some buyers, leaving you on the outside looking in of an otherwise hot market.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.
You’re excited about getting started on increasing your home’s value, and we get it! There are renovations to think about, DIY projects and color schemes to pick out, landscaping decisions to consider, and much more. This is not even mentioning the ever-practical concerns of improving your home’s safety and energy efficiency requirements.
Generally, if you’ve maintained your home to a reasonable standard, there’s nowhere to go but up. And for those ready to start redesigning their living space, renovations can be a combination of elements that enhance your current lifestyle while remaining practical for a resale later. And that’s just the long-run view.
The thought of remodeling a house often makes people envision months of living away from home, long periods of frustration, and – above all – out-of-control expenses.

Try the following five quick and simple budget-friendly remodels:
When selecting the right door for your home, there are many factors that go into the decision, but typically one of the first is whether the door should be wood, fiberglass, or steel.
