Stainless Steel Sinks

  • Stainless steel is relatively lightweight as compared to other materials. They are available in varying sizes and thicknesses, so their weights vary accordingly. The weight of stainless steel sinks is usually dependent on the gauge of the steel. The higher the gauge number, the thinner the steel. Homeowners commonly choose gauge numbers 18 and 20. Thinner stainless steel thinks (gauge 20 or higher) usually dent and scratch easily, so it might not be highly recommended.
  • Stainless steel sinks are relatively easy to clean and they tend to stay looking new for a longer period of time as long as they are cared for properly. You would not have to worry about leaving orange juice stains overnight, as it can easily be cleaned the following day. Stains can cause dulling and scratching however, so it is still best to wipe debris and spills as soon as possible. Putting rubber or plastic mats in the sink can protect it from scratches and protect its shiny surface.
  • There are lots of durable and beautiful stainless steel sinks that do not have rims or seams. The absence of seams gives a very modern and sleek appearance. These are usually made from one single solid steel sheet. Seamless sinks are easiest to clean and to keep clean. There are no crevices or cracks where bacteria, germs and grime can hide in.
  • Stainless steel sinks come in various styles so that you can easily find one that will suit your kitchen theme and style. They are also available in various colors, sizes, and finishes so that it is compatible with any kind of cabinetry or furniture.
  • Stainless steel sinks come in single, two-bowl and three-bowl models, each with varying depths. Depending on how much kitchen work and washing you do, there are a wide variety to choose from. For instance, if you wash lots of pans daily, you can choose a deep, two bowl sink to make sure that there is room for soaking, and for multi-tasking. You can specifically choose one that will best suit your kitchen needs.

Carriage House Garage Doors

Well, let’s start with cost. You can dress up a plain two-car garage door for under $300. Or you can replace the door or doors for anything from $700 to the sky’s the limit ($30,000 or more). But keep in mind the goal. You want you home to have the same appeal as those houses you drove past without upstaging you house. What good is that? Then you’d have some major remodeling to do to. You don’t want that. Be realistic. Visit your local decorative hardware showroom or garage door manufacturer. I suggest these over your standard lumberyard/hardware store because the decorative hardware store and the garage door manufacturer will be better equipped to walk you through the process, they will offer many more options than the big warehouse stores and they know what they are talking about. Your cost may be a little more but the look will be stunningly different than the big box warehouse store could offer.

Next consider the value added to your home. For far less than adding an addition, or upgrading a bathroom you have added value to your home. Its street appeal has risen greatly and after all – that’s what people see first.

Lawn Care And Landscaping

As anyone who calls the suburbs their home will tell you, the appearance of your lawn is crucial to your survival. An unkempt exterior will draw a host of negative attention from your neighbors and can often do more to ruin your otherwise stellar reputation than if you had set the entire neighborhood on fire. Part of living in a community – fortunately or unfortunately – is your responsibility to your neighbors to maintain a well-kept uniformity. Lawn care and landscaping is paramount to upholding your neighborly responsibility.

Additionally, lawn care and landscaping will add value to your overall home, in many cases increasing its worth and that of the neighborhood. Putting money into lawn care and landscaping will ensure good resale value; and if you do decide to sell your home, your curb appeal alone will surely increase inquiries about your property.

The way in which you maintain lawn care and landscaping is a personal decision. As said, there are a multitude of companies that will professionally landscape your property to your specifications and perform maintenance – both lawn and landscaping – on a frequent basis. The money spent on such a service can be well worth the expense.
