Make Your Home Dreams Come True

Whatever your home dreams are, they won’t come true without some effort on your part. So, today is the perfect opportunity to get off the sofa, and do something about it. Your home probably needs your help. Homes built before 1980 are now considered old houses. In this area that’s quite common. Sure, your home may have the charm of a bygone era, but older structures normally require additional remodeling and renovations. 

Your kitchen: Older than your house?
Ironically, some of your home’s rooms have aged even faster than the house. Take the kitchen for example; if it’s more than 10 years old it’s probably out of date. You can do something simple like replacing your white cabinets with very trendy green ones. Or even put in a magnetic-strip knife holder and a glass door refrigerator. But that may not be enough. As your kitchen gets more difficult to navigate it may be time for smarter upgrades. Simple tasks can be more daunting as we get older, like navigating tight spaces with sharp edges and bending down to reach lower kitchen appliances. Families tend to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. You want the heart of your home to be comfortable and safe. With all of this in mind, it’s a good time to call a contractor with over 40 years of experience creating modern kitchens. That company is Glickman|Design Remodel Build. Call us now your kitchen is not getting any younger.

In every room, start the dream with the floor
Today there are many choices for flooring from painted wood to antique stone, to modern tile, to traditional parquet and that’s just in the kitchen. But when you work with a company like Glickman you will work with experts who make sure that the flooring is safe and right for every room. In older homes, floors may be sagging. Glickman will help you make an assessment to see if it’s sound structurally, and we check for mold as well as termites.

Our designers will work with you every step of the way. Every floor, in any room that Glickman renovates, will be a safe choice. Slippery floors can be the biggest factor in accidental falls. Glickman has worked with many homes in your area and we have installed floor materials that offer grips to prevent slipping. For some older people standing on a tile floor for long periods can cause hip pain. That’s why we often suggest surfaces with more cushion like wood or vinyl.

New fixtures for old bathrooms
Today all plumbing is not only a matter of installing better fixtures but also adhering to strict local codes. Glickman knows the rules in your area, will look at your plumbing from the outside in. Sometimes in older homes, the previous owner may have installed cast-iron or copper pipes. Which means you are fortunate. These can be low maintenance even today. But if you have galvanized iron pipe it can be corroded due to mineral deposits. Before an accident happens that leads to a great expense, let the Glickman experts evaluate your plumbing and, if needed, give you the best possible solutions. Renovating a bathroom is no small undertaking. Before we do anything, we sit with you and make a plan. We go over every detail. Planning before the job begins is the best way to save money at completion. Today with the high cost of moving many families are choosing to stay in their homes. Glickman will show you how grab bars and walk-in showers are not only a wise up-grade but also ideal for aging in place. Visit our showroom and see examples of our bathroom designs featuring tiles with textured surfaces, matte finishes, or small tiles with lots of grout lines, which give you a far better grip than larger tiles.
