Today, we are spotlighting Andersen Windows. The video below gives a peak into their production system and just how they strive to maintain its 106 year old company quality with sustainability. Over 98 percent of all the material they use is recycled into a meaningful material.
They have been awarded in energy and green certification awards numerously. It's no wonder Andersen is one of the leaders in this industry. The company continues to use innovated ways in reducing emissions and improving energy conservation.
They pride themselves on sustainability, saying it is "More than just a slogan, it's who we are."
I love product 'look-a-likes". Not only do they cost less, more often than not, but look just as great and wear well over time. Here we have a great substitute for stone and petrified wood.
Formica has a product to emulate the look of stone slab and petrified wood. The 180fx series laminate shows off a large format and advanced printing, accentuated with coordinating matte, satin, and polished finishes give the appearance of a realistic texture. The surfacing is available in seven new designs.
This just might be the product you are looking for to add the style you are longing for in your kitchen or bathroom. If so, let us help you start designing your next remodel using Formica!
If you are like me, I avoid having to look far into the back of my sink base cabinet. You just don't know what lingers there... a possible slow leak or grimy spill from dish soap.
Merillat Classic cabinetry has made available a product that is designed to address minor spills and plumbing leaks. It's called a CoreGuard Sink Base. With the exception of the cabinet’s face, frame and door assembly, all the wood and wood-based materials were replaced with an engineered polymer material, making the product easy to clean and maintain.
After your newly remodeled kitchen cabinetry has been installed, this type of product gives you added piece of mind in protecting your newly remodeled investment. But don't just take my work for it; take a look at the video below.
This is our latest update on the largest remodel ever in the Westbrook Village neighborhood in Peoria Arizona.
The addition on the front of the house is structurally finished. The roof tile is ready to reinstall after totally removing it to replace the waterproof underlayment. The custom kitchen cabinetry is installed in the enlarged kitchen, and we are moving forward on wall texture and will soon start the tile work for the bathroom remodels and the tile flooring throughout the home.
Ever forget to turn on the bathroom vent fan before taking a hot shower? I have and then trying to finish getting ready in the humidity is not such an enjoyable experience. Today we're sharing a ventilation fan that does the remembering for you!
The WhisperControl humidity and temperature sensor anticipates condensation and automatically turns on the Panasonic ventilation fan. Unlike traditional sensors, which turn fans on in response to a rapid rise in humid air and therefore could cause them to switch on unnecessarily in certain climate zones, the maker says, this wall-mounted unit detects hot air and humidity based on dew point. The two models—the FV-WCCS1 and the FV-WCCS2—feature a blue LED light and a manual on/off switch and come in white or almond; the FV-WCCS2 also includes a manual on/off light switch.
This is a simple solution and makes a big difference in a humid bathroom. So if you have a pet peeve about getting ready in a humid bathroom, we suggest you considering this smart product that does the remembering for you. It would make your morning routine a tad bit more comfortable.
This is a great post, especially during these hot summer months in Phoenix. When remodeling, one of the most important things to improve is the HVAC. Why upgrade? To save money on utility cost in the long run, of course, and well, it just makes sense to make this important change so that you can truly appreciate your new remodel.
Carrier has recently come out with a unit featuring Greenspeed intelligence shown here. The company’s latest Infinity heat pump offers an industry leading HSPF heating efficiency rating of up to 13 along with cooling efficiency up to 20 SEER. According to the firm, the unit’s variable-speed scroll compressor provides consistent indoor temperatures while conserving energy. The line includes capacities from 2 to 5 tons.
If you really want to enjoy all the new renovations in your remodeled home you'll really want to consider upgrading that old unit. You won't regret it!
Things are underway on our interior remodel in North Scottsdale.
Our flooring crew is doing a beautiful job on installing a beautiful travertine floor. The basic field tiles are installed and they are beginning to cut the edge tiles. I am looking forward to the installation of a large tile medallion in the entry area.
Our next video should have interesting details on our faux finishing work on the walls and cabinetry as well as other finishing touches on the kitchen and bathroom remodeling.

If you are considering replacing your old cabinets for newer cabinets... take a look at this first.
The Cinnabar wet glaze finish by Decora can be painted over existing cabinets. It works with wood’s natural beauty to expose variation in tone while highlighting the natural texture. The warm reddish-brown glaze shades darker on bold wood such as alder and appears lighter on cherry and maple, a variety that can provide a unique accent to a room or work as a neutral complement to a variety of room elements. The glaze is shown here on Willshire maple cabinets alongside the Bombay island.
So if you want a fresh new look in your bathroom or kitchen, maybe think about refurbishing your old cabinets first, before replacing them. Give us a call and we'll give you our experienced option on whether this is a good idea for your next kitchen or bathroom remodel.
