See then Sign! Stressing the importance of Visual Aids in Home Remodeling

Visual Aids     How does a Home Improvement Specialist convey their concept to a homeowner? A:  You do it through communication and Visual Aids like 3d Rendering software.  Theses programs have come a long way in the last few years and we are now able to show our Homeowners a fairly accurate interpretation of their new space prior to building it. Why is this important? A:  Well most of us are not able to comprehend how something will be positioned through speech alone.  If everyone possessed this skill, most if not all designers, Architects, decorators and design/build contractors would not be in such high demand.  Our Homeowners deserve a full description of what they are paying for and the picture to back it up. Are changes easy? A:  If you would like to see an array of different options, our team will be able to accommodate most changes on the fly.  Our team is well versed in the presentation software and will most likely recommend their...

Shamong NJ Kitchen Remodel

Warm colors brings closure to this Shamong NJ Home How do you know when its time for an update? A:  When the finish on your kitchen cabinet doors start to peel. We all don't have the same answer for the above question, but everyone has their own idea when its a good time to update their current space.  Our homeowners always intended to replace their builder grade kitchen, but like most of us, life got in the way and other things took priority.  Timing is everything and updating your kitchen is no different.  When finances, kids, and careers are all in tune and going well, we allow ourselves to reflect on things that have been put off and check them off this list. This kitchen was one of the last spaces our homeowners had to tackle before they felt some renovation closure with the builder finishes they had been replacing over the years.  Next Level Remodeling was glad to help.  We did not feel like a dramatic...

Who Says a Wood Deck is Out?

Wood Decks? With the myriad options available for decks and porches, it’s seldom that we have a request for a pressure-treated wood deck. A family in Haddonfield, NJ opted for just that after seeing the cost difference for composites. Bad Rep & Maintenance Wood decks have a reputation for warping, splintering and generally degrading in a short amount of time. The fact is, however, that has much more to do with the time, money, and effort spent on maintenance by the homeowner than is does the materials involved. Pressure-treated yellow pine is resistant to insects and moisture damage and is a sturdy and dependable structural material. On the other hand, it is also notorious for twisting, warping, spitting, and splintering as it loses its moisture content. Those effects can be minimized by applying an oil-based stain or sealer to the wood, soon after the wood deck has been erected, and treated annually after that. In addition, bolts holding railing posts and beams together should...

SCREEN PORCH PLUS!!!

BASIC SCOPE: This screen porch project is the replacement and enlargement of an existing composite surfaced deck and awning system with 682 square feet of Azek™, Arbor Morado decking, 447 square feet of which is covered and enclosed with Phantom™ screening units. Calling this a mere screen porch does not do this project justice. The elegant design is by Jill Traister of East Coast Designs of Hammonton, NJ, and the structural design was by Holiday Architects, Inc. of Medford NJ. Details: The geometry is based on juxtaposed octagonal sections, and the roof is constructed to allow for a fully hipped interior ceiling, covered with Mastic’s Pro-bead™ solid, vinyl soffiting inside and vented outside. The decking is mitered to follow the geometric motif of the entire structure, including each stair tread, and each miter is rounded-over for effect. The perimeter band board is covered with Azek’s Acacia trim board to achieve a subtle contrast to the decking. All of the structural columns are wrapped in white Azek, and finished with...

Kitchens: What’s Old is What’s New and Visa-versa

 Kitchen Design: What’s New? What’s Old? So, you want to remodel your kitchen, and you’re looking for ideas. You’ll soon find there are millions of them. Perhaps, so many that the exercise of research just makes the decisions more complicated. There are no hard and fast rules. The kitchen you want has to suit you. Well, it all looks so good! Traditional cabinetry with ultra-modern appliances and accoutrements—and visa-versa—is fast becoming a trend. The mixture of past, present, and imagined future design elements can be melded to create an eclectic whole. Stainless steel and distressed pine together—natural stone and backlit acrylics—bold-colored islands and stained perimeter cabinetry. Seemingly incompatible forms can work to create your eclectic whole. Often, this demands the eye and skills of a professional kitchen designer.                                                                                             Old world meets new: Before                                                                                                                                                  After           The kitchen work triangle of the past has given way to the new kitchen polygon. With the advent of multiple work stations, multiple sinks, pot fillers, mixer lifts,...
