Home Renovation Plans for 2015? Consider This!

 

Planning Window, Door, & Patio Renovations

 

Before finalizing your home renovation plans for 2015, it is important that you take a moment to do some research and observe your home to ensure that you have covered all the bases. Whether you are thinking about patio doors, entry doors, or windows, consider the following:

 

§  While it is raining, grab an umbrella and take a moment to see how the water flows over and through your property. This is the most obvious way to determine problem areas because you can see where water pools on your patio and other hardscapes surrounding your home. If you find areas where water pools excessively, you will need to incorporate a drainage system into your renovation plans.

§  Additionally, analyzing how much rain hits the windows and doors on each elevation of the house when it is raining can also help you avoid future problems and determine which type of window (solid wood, wood clad with aluminum, vinyl, all aluminum, etc.).

§  Most importantly, during all winter storms this winter season make sure to identify any areas of vulnerability in your home so that you can repair them before the next rainy season arrives. This means looking at how well your entry doors, patio doors, and windows withstand high winds, rain, and whatever else Mother Nature might throw your way.

 

If you are ready to transform your home and make your wildest home renovations become a reality, it is time to start planning, especially if you want your project to be wrapped up when summer arrives!

Winter Wellness For Your California Home

 

Doors and Windows for Indoor Outdoor Living

 

In some regions of California we do not get much of a winter season, especially when compared too much of the rest of the country. Despite common belief, when it comes to winter wellness, it may not be in your best interest to close up your home during the winter. Just because it is winter does not mean that it is too cold to go outside or open your doors and windows.

 

Sometimes, it is even warmer outside than inside our homes. Rather than locking the doors and saying goodbye to the beautiful outdoors, we recommend opening your Bi-Fold patio doors and inviting the fresh air and light to enter your home and provide your body with much needed Vitamin D. This can also be a great way to reduce energy costs since you will be utilizing both the light and midday warmer temperatures to warm and illuminate your home.

 

While you are enjoying indoor-outdoor living during the winter, take a moment to think about which renovations you would like to conduct during 2015. Perhaps it is time to incorporate some new doors and windows for indoor-outdoor living. Our multi-slide patio door system allows you to blend the out with the in, as these patio doors can be hidden in the pockets concealed within your walls. This addition will be perfect for throwing parties year-round, because guests can seek shelter inside or enjoy the fresh air without having to even open a door.

The Welcoming, Winterized Patio

 

Winter Patio Decor Ideas

 

Although there is no snow on the ground, it is winter! As a homeowner, it is important that you take the time to winterize.  As California residents, we often neglect the task of winterizing our outdoor living spaces when temperatures are hitting seasonal lows. Following are some helpful tips we suggest you incorporate to winterize your patio:

§  It is time to take down the holiday-themed and colored lights and replace them with simple, classic lights for winter. Standard icicles or strings of white LED bulbs are great options for winter patio décor.

§  While you may be inclined to keep your patio doors closed and put the indoor outdoor living experience off until temperatures begin to rise again, there is nothing more enjoyable than gathering around the fire pit on your patio and reveling in the crisp evening air, even if only for a short time. Great memories can be made under the stars this winter!

§  Many homeowners take a break from gardening activities during the winter, assuming it is impossible for any plants to flourish in such chilly temps. In reality, there are a variety of plants that can withstand low winter temperatures and beautify your home, including:

§  Camellia – As one of the most popular winter plants, the camellia bush will cheer up a dull winter landscape with its bright and beautiful blooms. It is also drought-resistant.

§  Winterberry – Planting winterberries near your patio will not only be aesthetically pleasing, but it will also provide you with striking foliage for use in customizing centerpieces and bouquets of flowers.

§  Heather – Many Californians are becoming aware of the practical advantage of planting heather. Blooming in graceful mounds of lavender or pink year round, heather is a great landscaping choice for homeowners in almost every region.
