By Monica Guhde
Owner, Guhde Flooring America
We all love the look of a gleaming hardwood floor, but what we cannot see underneath it is just as important. If you are planning to install hardwood flooring in your home, you need to understand the anatomy of a floor before you start the installation.
To prevent squeaky floors, you need to make sure the joists are properly installed. Joists are cross beams that frame the floor, either sitting atop the foundation of the house or holding up the upstairs floors. They provide the structural support of a floor so it will be stable and secure. Ideally, you want the joists to run perpendicular to the flooring. If the flooring must run paral ...

Thawing & Preventing Frozen Pipes

Categories: Home Technology, Kitchen & Bath

As temperatures plummet, the water inside a home’s pipes are at a greater risk of freezing. If your pipes are already blocked with ice, there are steps you can take to fix the problem and prevent it from happening in the future.
Blocks vs. Bursts
When your pipes freeze, a lack of running water is the least of your worries. A burst pipe can spray hundreds of gallons of water into your home.
If you turn a faucet and you’re not greeted with the familiar stream of water, you’ve probably got a blockage. Water has frozen and created a wall of slushy ice that’s preventing new water from reaching the tap. This is bad news because it means you can’t get a drink and yo ...

Cabinets & Granite Direct has been providing Northeast Ohio homes with quality granite for their kitchens and bathrooms for a decade. But just because their showroom is geared toward the homeowner, doesn’t mean they can’t handle the big jobs.
Cabinets & Granite Direct just completed two huge projects for two Northeast Ohio restaurants. YellowTail in Fairlawn and Shinto in Strongsville both needed a granite overhaul. Bars, tables, and countertops, everything granite needed replaced.
Cabinets & Granite impressed Kyle, the General Manager at Shinto, so much that he invited them into his own home.

The Problem With Shims

by on 02/02/2015 - 04:07 pm
Categories: Building & Remodeling, Kitchen & Bath

It probably goes without saying, but homeowners enjoy (and demand) flat countertops. That request seems easy enough to accommodate. After all, the floor is flat, the cabinets on top of the floor are flat, and the countertop that rests on the cabinets is flat. What’s the problem?
Things are not as they appear. Kitchen floors, especially those in older homes, rise and fall sometimes as much as half an inch in either direction.

For many years, the solution has been shims. Shims are small wedges of wo ...

The start of the New Year can prompt homeowners to take a good look at the interiors of their homes and think about ways to create a fresh new look. Flooring is a good place to get started on the right foot. After all, we’re all going to be seeing a lot of our living rooms and family rooms over the long winter months.
Since flooring is a long-term investment, homeowners are cautious about choosing not only the hottest current trend in carpeting, wood, and other flooring options, but they also want to be sure their selection will withstand the test of time.
Some of the growing trends, like bamboo and reclaimed wood flooring, also are hap ...
