Cabinet Lighting

By | Homeowner News, Products | No Comments

On a recent episode of the At Home Show Mark sat down with Pam Kars.  Kars is the cabinet manager at Zeeland Lumber and Supply and has been in the building industry for more than 20 years.  The pair discussed a variety of topics, but the highlight of the show was KraftMaid’s new cabinet lighting option.KraftMaid-Cabinet-Lighting-300x95

Cabinet lighting can be installed during new construction or added to an existing kitchen.  Basic tools will be needed for an ‘after market’ installation, but it should be relatively easy for a novice handy man.  Lighting can be added to kitchen islands or be mounted underneath counter tops to add a glow to your kitchen.

 

Composite Decking

What is Composite Decking?

Composite decking first entered the decking market in the early to mid 1990’s as an alternative to traditional lumber.  Composite boards are often made up of recycled material like rubber and plastic that has been molded to form a deck board.  While the price of composite material can be higher than traditional decking, composite boards offer several unique advantages:

  • Increased Durability
  • Decreased Maintenance
  • Fade Resistance
  • Increased Color Selection
  • Stain Resistant

Capped vs. Non-Capped Composite Decking

When purchasing composite decking you may need to decide between a capped and non-capped product.  Both materials are made from recycled materials but a capped product is covered in a thin PVC plastic that has been bonded to the composite material.  A ‘capped’ product may result in increased durability. 

Considering a Change?
