Wahoo – Project finished – it’s now in the homeowners hands

We have finished the screened porch project in Cary.  The final photos will soon be up on our website but here is a brief selection.  The owners have already begun entertaining and I expect that will continue year round.  With the fire place and the Ezy-Breeze window panels it should be toasty whenever they want to enjoy the outdoors.  Screened porches are one of the best outdoor living home improvements that can be done.  LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  This will surely be a STAR Awards entry for the Remodelers Council competition, we’ll keep you posted after the awards banquet.

Hey, I have an idea – wouldn’t you love to have your own screened porch, or kitchen, or bath, or new master suite.  Just saying.

Cary Screened Porch project update

Getting into the finish stages of this project.  Homeowners painter did a nice job, railings being done today and tomorrow, ceramic tile floor gets installed tomorrow and fireplace tile first thing Thursday.  The job will be finished just about when the pollen blows away.  That way the owners can use it all summer long, no muss, no fuss.  Could be an award winner!!!!

Long overdue update

They got spring and fall mixed up but still THE BIG(GEST) SHOW.  We have been working hard on our remodeled home show booth (yes we have to remodel as well as our customers).  Come by the Southern Ideal Home Show next weekend to see what we have done.  More room for photos and displays.  We will be focusing again this fall on the Certified Aging In Place Specialist theme.  There are some great ideas that are easy and cheap to incorporate into a remodeling project.  We will also have pictures on display of our three STAR Award Gold winning projects.  There is so much going on you have to come.  If you would like to have FREE passes just call our office and speak with Marcia 303-0758 and she’ll get them out to you next week.  Click the title link to go to the show website.

Oh My, So much to tell you!!!!

Last Thursday evening was the STAR Awards banquet.  The whole gang was there along with their significant others.  Of the six entries we were graciously awarded three gold awards.  Best Accessible Remodel, Best Attic, and Best Room Addition.  Special shout out and thank you to all of our clients who allowed us to bring the judges into your homes and for taking the time to complete the customer questionnaire.  This is one of the few remodeling competitions where the owners get to comment and the judges actually visit all of the jobs.  There were 96 entries this year (amazing considering the economy) which amounts to $12 million in remodeling activity.

****** Blue Ribbon was also surprised with a special honor.  Each year an Associate and Remodeler member is selected to receive special recognition.  This award is bestowed on the business and owner for their support of the Remodelers Council as well as the promotion of the industry in the eye of the public.  This year Blue Ribbon and me (John Sperath – in case you didn’t know) were given that recognition.  This was a total shock which we weren’t expecting.  Thank you all who contributed to Blue Ribbon’s success again this year in the Star Awards.
