Today is the day to start your kitchen remodel for the holidays.

What time of the year do you use your kitchen the most? Is it for Thanksgiving, where the turkey is roasted to perfection, the dressing is an old family recipe, and an extra homemade pumpkin pie is enjoyed over a cup of coffee?  Or is your kitchen where the kids and grandkids gather to make Christmas cookies?  Do these events make you think about remodeling your kitchen every year for the next holiday season? After the holidays, the sense of urgency wears off until just before the next holiday season. Again, too late to do anything about it.

Jill Rubey, Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD), spent 25 years in the kitchen industry before becoming Manager of Cabinet Design and Sales at the Requarth Co. She knows this cycle all too well and would like to give you some tips to help you hit your deadline, as well as get the most beautiful kitchen possible for the holidays.

“Believe it or not, summer is the best time to plan your new kitchen,” Rubey said. “The holidays sneak up on you fast. Unlike home improvement television, real world kitchen remodels take time. The sooner you get started, the better the chances are that you will have your dream kitchen by the holidays. As a bonus, during a late summer remodel you can take advantage of the weather and cook outside.”

Be realistic with your timeline. You don’t want to shortchange yourself to hit a deadline that is too tight. Typically a kitchen design takes 2-3 weeks, a cabinet order can take 4-8 weeks for delivery,  cabinet installation is 1-2 weeks, and countertops take 2 weeks for measure and installation. That’s 2-4 months depending on the kitchen’s complexity. Yes, there are things you can do to shorten the project timeline, but usually it comes down to compromise that limits your choice of cabinets, countertops, or design features. Thanksgiving is less than four months away, and Christmas about five.

Shawn Miller, Green Certified Professional (NAHB) and former home builder, spent 27 years in the industry before becoming Manager of Operations at the Requarth Co. Shawn believes it is important for homeowners to appreciate the complexity of a kitchen remodel. The key to a great remodel is to plan, plan some more, then stick to the plan. Changes will always add time and additional expense to the project. To get your project completed by a “special date” like Thanksgiving, Christmas, a birthday or wedding, he recommends building in plenty of time and keeping the changes to a minimum.

Get with a Designer.According to Rubey, designers can save you a lot of headaches. A kitchen designer takes your wishes, wants, needs, timeline, and budget to put together a plan. They will work with you to develop a layout that will work best for you, make product recommendations that will fit your timeline and budget, and take care of any issues that may arise with the cabinet manufacturer.

To expedite the design process, think about how you want your new space to work for you before meeting with your kitchen designer. This is the time to consider everything you might want. Do you need a large island for entertaining? How about a display case for your wine or precious family heirlooms? Have you always wanted a drawer microwave or dishwasher?

Have an idea of your budget. Designers can work much more efficiently when they have an idea of the budget they are working with. Do your homework to find out what kitchens cost and what your personal finances can handle. A sink can cost $100 or $3,500 and a ranges can be $500 or $10,000. Cabinetry and hardware run about 35% of your budget, appliances and ventilation can be 20%, countertops typically account for 15%, historically flooring is also 10%, and lighting is 5%. Earmark at least 15% for installation. Murphy’s Law, always assume you will uncover an issue like hidden water damage or mechanicals that need to be rerouted. Set aside a little budget in a “surprises” fund, since they are inevitable.

To recap, be realistic with your timeline. Make sure you have an idea of your needs, wants, and budget you can handle. Get a qualified kitchen designer that can walk you through the process from start to finish.

Good luck,  if you get started soon it won’t be too late. You still have time to get your new kitchen in-place by the holidays and for your special family moments.

5 Tips When Choosing Replacement Windows

Oh, if only you could have Home Extreme Makeover’s Ty Pennington swing by with his team and replace all of your old windows with beautiful new energy efficient ones that fit your style. Life would be great! Particularly if they could get it all done in an hour like on TV! In real life, however, window replacement is one of your most complex and resource-consuming home improvement projects.

Shawn Miller, Green Certified Professional (NAHB) and former home builder spent 27 years in the industry before becoming Manager of Operations at the Requarth Co. Shawn believes it is important for consumers to appreciate the complexity of window replacement and invest the time to choose the correct window for their house rather than risk being persuaded by marketing gimmicks that are designed to get them to buy today.

“It’s easy to fall for the barrage of advertising that boasts free installation, or two windows for the price of one, or the $99 window, and on and on. Informed consumers know that nothing is free. You will pay for it one way or another, if it’s a marked up window that covers installation cost, a poorly constructed window that will require replacement in a few years, or that will cost you on your energy bill,” Shawn said. “There are great windows out there from respected manufacturers at competitive prices.”

Ask Yourself Why. Are you looking to improve the comfort in your home? Save on your heating and cooling bills? Change the look or preserve an historically accurate appearance while utilizing modern energy efficient technology? Improve ease of cleaning and maintenance? If you have a neighborhood association or live in an historic district, you’ll need to know what is required.

Educate Yourself. All windows are not created equal. Modern window frames are still manufactured from traditional materials like wood and vinyl, but there are also new advanced materials like wood composites or extruded aluminum to consider. Glass option can also be a major factor in the look and energy efficiency of your windows. Insulated glass can be confusing with names like Low-E, SmartSun™, Dual-Pane, Tripane with Krypton, Tripane with Argon. Cosmetic options are also available in stained, beveled and tinted glass. A good window showroom and an experienced salesperson can demystify the technology in today’s windows. Don’t forget to think about how you would like your windows to open: casement, double hung, awning, or sliding?

Prioritize the details. Once you know what options are available, you can prioritize them. What’s a must? What would be nice? This will help you understand where to splurge and where to save. When choosing a clad wood window the details are endless from the combination of exterior colors, interior wood species, interior wood finished, hardware styles and finishes, glass options, grill styles, interior trim and exterior trim. When choosing vinyl, your options are white on white with little detail, but they are the most cost effective.

Budget. Do your homework to find out what windows cost and what your personal finances can handle. Size matters, so it is always best do some rough measurements before you visit a showroom. A clad wood window is generally 80% more than a standard vinyl window. Installation is not free regardless of what the marketing may say. As a general rule, standard installation cost is 30% to 50% of the total project’s budget.

Murphy’s Law. “We hate to see it, but always assume your installer will uncover an issue like hidden water damage when removing your old windows,” Shawn said. Set aside a little budget in a “surprises” fund, since they are inevitable.
Installation, Installation, Installation. Your new windows are only as good as the installation. Verify that your installer has been trained by the manufacturer on proper installation techniques for your brand of window and that he will stand by the installation. Poor installation can result in water damage to your home and void your window’s warranty. A quality window installation generally takes four to six hours per window. With Andersen Windows, look to see if your dealer is an Andersen Circle of Excellence dealer. This means the dealer is factory trained and authorized by Andersen to perform factory warranty work and service.

When you make the decision to move forward, and upgrade your home with beautiful new windows, follow these five tips. Windows are a major purchase that you want to get right the first time. Take your time and feel good about whom you are working with.
