Storage Time

Organization gurus promise that getting rid of clutter is the secret to a happier, healthier life. They're selling books on Oprah and cleaning out guest rooms on The Learning Channel's Clean Sweep. It seems that a yard sale and a new set of bins in the closet can be quite liberating.

But plastic bins and stick-on labels aren't for everyone. For those who want to take their storage system to the next level, a remodeled room or addition can be just the thing. Following the trend of cabinetry looking more and more like furniture, storage companies are upgrading the look of their systems with more finish and hardware options. “We've found that consumers use [storage cabinets] in all rooms,” says Kevin Nicusanti of Estate Storage. Estate responded to the trend with a well-received full line of maple cabinets. Nicusanti thinks the cabinets have a “move-up” quality. “You can spend $300 to $400 on cheap, ready-to-assemble laminate cabinets, or you can spend $200 more and get a quality product with good hardware and thick shelving, or a maple interior instead of white.”

Rev-A-Shelf, maker of custom storage organizing products, also recognizes the trend toward upscale-looking accessories. “Consumers want high quality, functional pull-outs and are more than willing to pay for them,” says Rob Jenkins, the company's director of marketing. He also sees specialized products gaining popularity. “Our cookware organizers, mixer lifts, and pull-down shelves are quickly being added to the ‘must-have' list,” he says. These trends point to the desire to have ease and organization built in to a room, rather than added on later in separate units that may not match.

Estate also noticed that people are using cabinetry in unusual or odd spaces where there normally wouldn't be cabinet space — a stairwell or a laundry room, for example. “The modularity of the systems is very important,” Nicusanti says. “You can configure any design you need.” He sees homeowners discovering unused space in their homes.

The potential for this previously unusable space can be a boon for upsells. Kitchen, bath, and basement remodels can benefit from upgraded organization systems. Designing in a lazy Susan, spice drawer, sink front tip-out tray, or pull-out waste container gives the client more options to choose from and spend money on. Jenkins sees this as an easy way to add profits to a job.

Nicusanti adds that organization products provide a surprising amount of satisfaction. “People don't realize how much emotional relief you get with these projects. Five hundred bucks and you have a whole new room.”

Amazing Swimming Pool Illusion!

Video Text: Had to drain the pool for repairs. Thought it would be a perfect opportunity for an illusion. So what can I do for a pool illusion? How about a pool ball? Kinda cheesey but I thought it turned out pretty good. I wanted to do an 8 ball but the blue tape worked perfectly for the 2 ball. The ending of the video was quite a surprise when the illusion caught the attention of the kitty cat.

We don't do pool illusions like this, but we do build, maintain, and add great features to new and existing pools all around Solano County. Call Vacaville Pools at 707-448-3405 and visit our website at

Saturday, February 16, 2013 Interview Of Hanson Roof About Concrete Roof Tiles and Cool Roof

Dan is the Regional Sales Representative of Hanson Roof Tile, and he informed us that 7 out of 10 of their roofing products achieve a score of 29 or greater on their Solar Reflective Indexes. There are currently 10 different roofing tiles that meet this competitive SRI score, and an additional 20 are on their way! A type of titanium is used within the roof tiles, and this metal has significant reflective properties. Moreover, the titanium used in the roofing is manufactured within 500 miles of plant. That's a big punch to the carbon footprint monster! Thank you Dan for sharing with us Hanson's endeavors in addressing sustainability.

Performance Plus Hardwood Finish Test

Carpet fibers hold allergenic bacteria and other unhealthy agents such as dust, dust mites, mold, mildew, dirt and grime. Hardwood floors are as much as 80 percent cleaner and healthier than floors with carpet. In addition, real-estate professionals agree that homes with hardwood floors sell faster and for more money than homes with carpet.

Of course, hardwood floors also add long-lasting beauty and elegance to your home. Call Northstate Hardwood Floors today to learn more about the many benefits of hardwood floors or to request and estimate on hardwood floor installation or refinishing for your home or business.

Northstate Hardwood Floors has been a Fisher Construction partner for close to three years. The company installs hardwood flooring in the homes of Fisher Construction clients, working on projects from one room to whole home installations. "We can always rely upon Northstate Hardwood Floors for the highest quality product, installation and services," says Fisher Construction owner Peter Valentino.

A resurgence of interest in hardwood floors over the past several years is due to a variety of factors, according to Marty Calvert: "People are ripping up their carpeting of formica to replace it with hardwood because hardwood flooring is so much easier to maintain," Marty says, "It makes for a cleaner look and feel in the home environment, and it’s beautiful, too."

Northstate Hardwood Floors has been privileged to work with many companies in the area. Red Carpet Realty, Bpwser Const., Carpet One Floor & Home Design, Chinberg Construction Inc., Custom Restorations Inc. A.S.B. Properties Investments as well as all of our wonderful home-owners. Refrences are available, so call if you need our services we are always available.

While oak remains the classic choice for flooring, other woods such as Brazillian Cherry or Walnut, with their darker, more exotic finishes, have grown in popularity recently. Hardwood can be used in every room in the home, from the kitchen to the bathroom, and installed over any surface, even concrete in the basement. These days there is a wood for every d├ęcor and almost every budget. Fisher Construction clients can select from a wide range of hardwoods to find one that integrates best with their remodel.

Marty appreciates working with Fisher Construction because of their strong relationships with clients and vendors. "They are nice people, good people to work for, and they treat you well," he says.
