Cabinetry is one of the most defining design aspects of the kitchen. Knowing this, it’s not surprising that kitchen cabinets come in a wide variety of styles and materials. If you are considering a kitchen remodel, read this article to get a better idea of which kitchen cabinet styles are most popular at the moment.
If you’re on a tight budget, buying stock kitchen cabinets is one of your best options. Though there aren’t many styles, finishes, or configurations, stock cabinets can be installed very quickly by the right kitchen remodeler. For higher quality kitchen cabinets that offer a wider variety of styling options and a custom fit in your kitchen, opt for custom kitchen cabinets. Custom cabinets will look great for many years to come, which makes them an excellent investment.
Flat panel and bead board panel cabinet doors are a great option for rustic kitchens or kitchens with a hand-finished look. They feature a recessed center panel that is circumscribed by stiles and rails. Raised panel is a classy choice for old-world kitchens. They are identifiable by their raised center, sloped edges, and surrounding frame. Slab doors are made from a single piece of material, making them easy to paint and clean.
Wood is always a classic choice for kitchen cabinetry, and looks good whether it’s in a modern kitchen or one with a rustic look and feel. However, wood does require more maintenance than glass, plastic or medium density fiberboard (MDF). After you choose a material for the cabinet, ask your kitchen remodeler for help in choosing a hardware material that matches it well.

One of the most obvious signs of a roof leak is a water stain on your ceiling. These unsightly and embarrassing stains can range in size and color depending on the extent of the water damage, but they are easily recognizable. In order to determine where water is leaking in from, you will need to climb into your attic and have a look around where the stain is located. However, roof leaks are rarely (if ever) located directly above a water stain, so be sure to investigate the entire area to find a stain. For more tips on checking your attic for roof leaks, check out this short video clip from DannyLipford.com.

The roof of your home is important for protecting your home—and your family—from the elements. It is also responsible for protecting your home’s value. In fact, the roof is the first thing that many potential homebuyers look at when shopping for a new home. If you are torn between repairing and replacing your roof, read this article for roofing tips that will help you make an informed decision.
Examine the Level of Damage
If you have damage in one area of your roof, ask a roofer to perform a partial re-roofing. If the entire roof needs work, however, replacing the entire roof is a better choice for minimizing costs in the long run. If your roof often sustains wind damage, consider replacing it. Patching your roof or installing a new roof on top of your current one is not a good long-term practice, as roof shingles are much stronger when they are attached directly to the roof.
Think About When You May Sell Your Home
A patch covering damaged shingles might be an economical choice if the rest of your roof is in good condition. But if you are selling your home soon, make sure that the patch matches the color of the roof perfectly. Consider replacing your roof if it is in bad condition—a bad roof is the last thing a potential buyer would want in a future home.
Consider the Type of Roof You Have
If your Chicago home has two layers of shingles already, you will have to either patch repair the roof or tear the roof out and replace it. The reason for this is that putting a new roof on top of your current one will significantly increase the weight of the roof, which compromises your home’s structural integrity.

Although it may seem like a radical project, adding a second floor to your Chicago home can be an excellent choice for a lot of different reasons. Adding a second story can increase the resale value of your home, add space for new family members, and prevent you from needing to move and find a new and larger house. Adding up may even be less expensive than remodeling. To learn more about second-level home additions, read the following article.
Adding a second story can increase the curb appeal of your home and even increase its value, but only if it’s done correctly. One of the most important parts of achieving a seamless integration of the new floor is to hire a contractor with lots of experience installing windows and doors that match the style of the existing home.
A second-level addition can range in size from a single bedroom to an entire floor with several rooms. A skilled builder can remove the roof and build a new level to your home, or even expand one part of your home’s existing upper level across a section of the first floor. As you consider the size of your project, ask your builder to show you different floor plans, and check to see if your neighborhood has regulations for second story additions.
Finding a high-quality building contractor for the job will ensure that your second-story addition adds as much value to your home as possible, and doesn’t require additional money down the road to repair. The right building contractor will also get the job done in a timely manner. As you look for a building contractor in Chicago, be sure that you hire one who will manage the entire project from foundation to finish, has decades of experience, and is deeply familiar with city and state building regulations.
To ensure that your second-story addition is both beautiful and affordable, contact Budget Construction Company. Call us at (773) 663-4082 and check out our website for more information about our experience adding second floors to homes in the Chicago area. We provide a range of home renovation services, so call us today to learn how we can make your dream home a reality.
