Kitchen Cabinets, Your Choices

Female Hands Framing Custom Kitchen Design Drawing and Photo Combination.

The kitchen cabinet is such a standard feature that it is not hard to imagine a homeowner taking it for granted or simply going with the standard options when planning to build or remodel their home. When the time comes to make this decision however, you might find that it is not as easy as you thought it would be. In fact, choosing kitchen cabinetry can be tough, and not just because you want the right look; but because of the functionality and customization as well.

Cabinet choices are often heavily influenced by trends, but you don’t want to catch them on the tail end of their popularity. Knowing the freshest trends in remodeling can make the process less of a struggle, and leave you with a kitchen you can be happy with. Many factors come into play when choosing kitchen cabinets. Let’s take a look at some of those options now: Read more

35 Years of Designing Value & Building Trust

Future, Present and Past words on a red speedometer to predict what's coming next and looking forward to a successful tomorrowDesigning Value & Building Trust.

There is something about ringing in the new year makes all of us a little sentimental and nostalgic. We’re in our 34th year of service this year, and in only 8 short months, we’ll be looking at 35 Years of Designing Value & Building Trust. We’ve designed, built, and remodeled a lot of homes in those 34 years. We’re looking forward to continuing our business for an undetermined length of time to come. Today we want to take a quick look at how things have changed in the design and build industry in the last 30 years.

 

National and Local Codes

Building codes differ from area to area because structural needs differ. All building codes are in place to protect the homeowner and builder from injuries, and the insurance agency against fraudulent claims. A home that passes all required inspections along the way is considered safe and legal for the inhabitants. Codes do change from time to time as new technologies come into play, so always make sure you’re building or remodeling your home with someone who has experience in your area.

Design Tools

This is one of the biggest changes we’ve seen thus far. We’ve always worked with printed blueprints, pencils, pens, and paper, among other design tools. Today we still use paper, pencils, and other tools to design and sketch, but we also use computers. The computers and software we use allow us to create amazing 3D renderings of your project so we can provide picture-perfect images before work begins. We are sure to be on the same page when we can see an actual representation of the finished project.

More Precise Quotes and Time Frames

The computerized system allows us to see precisely what we need for each project so we can provide a better time frame and more precise quotes. We still recommend that you budget at least 15% more in case of incidentals or if you decide to splurge on that amazing steam shower you’ve had your eye on instead of the tub-shower combo unit. Yes, we see these incredible trends, too.

Highest Quality Standards 

Our entire business has been built on quality workmanship and a professional demeanor. We’ve recognized as the Local Contractor of the Year many times over the years , in 2015 we’ve been awarded Best of Show and Contractor of the Year once again for the Phoenix area by the Greater Phoenix National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
In 2015 Ranking Arizona also recognized us as Arizona’s top remodeler after compiling their public vote.
After 35 Years of Designing Value & Building Trust, we are grateful for everyone’s continued support.

New Website, Blog Feature, and Resolutions

new webWe have a lot of exciting things going on this year here at Tri-Lite Builders. We’ve recently revamped the website; it seems as if everything needs to be remodeled occasionally. We’ve introduced the blog feature, and now we’re face to face with January 2016 and the multitude of ideas for New Year’s resolutions. We could stick with the usual popular resolutions such as eating healthier and exercising more, but we decided to include a few home improvement projects into the mix of resolutions as well.

 

Let’s Talk New Year’s Resolutions!

Home improvement projects crop up all year round, so there’s no way you can resolve to complete them all on a certain date. We completely understand that when something messes up, it has to be repaired as quickly as possible. So we aren’t saying that you need to create a plan of action this month and stick to it regardless. We’re simply saying instead of renewing the gym membership and only visiting a couple of days a week, remodel some part of your home to include a home gym. Instead of avoiding a certain area of your home or using it only as storage, remodel it to enhance the living spaces in your home and include organized hidden storage.

New Website – Our Whole New Design is Cleaner and Neater

We love our new website. The overall design is much neater and cleaner than it was before, and it’s easier to navigate. Our goal was to make it easy for you to find the answers to your questions before you call us because quality information is the key to a successful project from beginning to end. Our new website provides information like:

• Kitchen Remodeling FAQ – This area is pretty self-explanatory, it answers the most frequently asked questions about kitchen remodeling.
• Bathroom Remodeling FAQ – This area is also self-explanatory, it answers the most frequently asked questions about bathroom remodeling.
• Our Certifications – This area covers our current certifications and gives you information about each.
• Our Design Process – We always like for our clients to become familiar with our design-build process because it does take time to create perfection.
• Our Gallery of Previous Projects – We’ve built our reputation on our ability to provide quality work in a timely manner, excellent craftsmanship, and a professional atmosphere from beginning to end. We take pride in the projects we’ve finished and would like to encourage you to look at our previous work to determine whether or not you would like to work with us.
New Blog – What Would You Like to See?

We want your input. We want to know what you would like to see on the blog so we can tailor our content to fit into the categories you want to read. We can go on for hours about building, remodeling, trends, and the like, but if we aren’t providing content you want to read, you won’t visit us that often. So email us, call us at 480-895-3442, or visit our Facebook page to let us know what you would like to see next.
