Mike’s Guys: How to Get Rid of Ceiling Condensation

Ceiling Condensation is a common problem homeowners face and should be addressed promptly; excess moisture can eventually cause mold and mildew to form — quickly escalating a small problem into a much larger and potentially dangerous ordeal. Not only will you have to pay for a mold remediation company to handle the hazardous growth, but you’ll likely need to hire a contractor to repair the affected areas afterward. What a headache! It is helpful for homeowners to understand what causes the condensation and how to get rid of it before it becomes a bigger issue. Read more

8 Storage Solutions & Features for a Sleek, Uniform Kitchen

 
 

 
 
The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in the house. When you consider how many times your family uses the kitchen throughout the week – how many meals are prepped, dishes are dirtied and washed, how often the trash needs to be taken out, groceries need to be put up and so on – it’s easy to see how it can quickly become jumbled and disorderly! Add the regular, frequent use of the kitchen to the occasional birthday celebration, holiday dinner, or Superbowl Sunday party and before you know it, your kitchen is in desperate need of some TLC and reorganizing.
 
 
One of the main reasons clients come to us for a kitchen remodel is because they want to improve the functionality and organization of the space. A kitchen that is equipped with the right features, adequate storage and a flowing floor plan not only provides for a pleasant experience when using the kitchen, but also creates a cleaner, sleeker look with less clutter. Trust us, these are two things you will appreciate all year ‘round!
 
 
Even if you aren’t ready to complete a full-scale renovation, there are a few storage solutions and features you can incorporate into your kitchen that really will make all the difference in it’s efficiency and organization:
 
 
1. Pull-out Pantries and Spice Racks
 

 
 
Many older homes include large walk-in pantries. While this might seem like a great feature to have in your kitchen, these bulky pantries often end up wasting more space than they provide. Not only do they take up potential counter space, but when you consider that there has to be enough room for you to stand inside, how much space is really being used efficiently? Pull-out pantries take up much less square footage while taking advantage of vertical space that would otherwise be wasted. Another neat benefit is that pull-out pantries can be seen from both sides, so you no longer have to worry about digging through your pantry shelves or finding an item that is expired because it was pushed to the back for too long!
 
 

 
 
Pull-out spice racks are another cool feature that optimize storage space and help with organization. Having this type of spice rack installed near your stove or cooktop makes for easy access during meal prep and provides for quick put-away when it’s time to clean up.
 
 
2. Cabinets Extended to the Ceiling

An Open-Concept Kitchen Gets a Fresh Look & Improved Functionality

Looking back at original floor plans and layouts of our clients’ homes often makes us scratch our heads and think, “why would anyone design it that way in the first place?” Unfortunately, “cookie cutter” homes are not always designed in a way that optimizes usable space. Kitchens, in particular, are typically set up in a way that creates unwanted traffic and congestion in the work areas, isolates the cook from the neighboring rooms, and lacks the necessary features for optimal organization and efficiency. These are the most common complaints we get from our clients looking to renovate, and were definitely the case with our most recent kitchen remodel! Read more

Our recent clients came to us wanting a more modern, streamlined look and improved functionality in the galley kitchen of their 1970s ranch home.
 
 
As you’ve probably noticed in the before shots of many of our kitchen remodels, homes built in the 1970’s all seem to have at least one feature in common: a closed-off, crowded kitchen with a peninsula that boxes in the space. As popular as this trend was back in the day, it’s always the first thing to go when we begin the remodeling process!

Prep Your Home for Spring Storms! Our May 2017 Newsletter

 
 

Is your home ready for spring storms?


 
 

It’s spring time, and in Texas, that means one thing: spring storms! Much of North Texas has already experienced nature’s wrath this season — some with tornadoes, hail, flash floods, and damaging winds.

Unfortunately, there is no way to control the weather, but here are some tips to help you prepare for and safely endure Mother Nature’s fury:

 
 

Identify any existing roof or siding problems. Inspect your roof for missing shingles and possible leaks and do any repair work if necessary. Loose siding should also be repaired, as it can rip off easily in heavy winds. Read more
