Question by smrfchic00: Has anyone used one of those kitchen remodeling places that advertice a complete remodel for 95-4995?
The ads say that they include solid oak cabinets and granite countertops (with certain specifications as to cabinet size and linear feet of counter), as well as demolition and installation. (This is in Southern California, San Gabriel Valley area.)
Also interested in the $ 2995 bathroom remodel ads if you have experience with those.

What they offer you cabinet wise is the stock oak cabinets..here is a pic of them. Usually this is what they offer:

If you are renting or trying to stay on a tight budget, it’s not such a bad solution. But if you are trying to fix up your home to re-sell, I find it hard for you to get the money back in the sale. Buyers want to see nicer cabinetry and natural stone or quartz counter tops. Have fun with your remodel!

Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) February 03, 2014

Milgard was recently recognized as a contributing partner of New Town Homes, a Grand Winner at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Challenge Home awards. New Town Builders installed Style Line™ Series in the zero energy-ready home.

Going above and beyond ENERGY STAR® requirements, New Town Builders announced in 2012 that every home it builds at Stapleton, a 7.5-square-mile planned community, will earn a Challenge Home certification from the DOE. Challenge Home builders are in the top 1% of builders in the country that meet DOE-specified requirements for excellence and quality. Homes meeting DOE’s Challenge Home criteria must include high insulation levels and air tightness, features that improve indoor air quality and water conservation, as well as durable and safe construction to protect against natural disasters. Each home is equipped with technologies that exceed current code requirements to provide quality appliances, HVAC, comfort and solar-ready components that result in ultra-low or no utility bills.

34 Milgard Style Line Series windows and one sliding glass door were installed to help reach the performance levels achieved by New Town Homes. The builder used a reduced framing technique at the windows to reduce lumber costs while allowing more space for insulation. The windows were argon-filled and included SunCoatMAX® Low-E3 glass that helps reduce winter heat loss while controlling summer heat gain.

An independent verifier tests and inspects every home’s performance to calculate a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) score, the nationally recognized scoring system for measuring a home’s energy performance. The lower the number, the more energy efficient the home. Most existing homes score above 120; New Town’s Challenge Home scores an impressive HERS 3 with annual energy costs of negative $ 89.

Milgard is one of many participants for the home including its affiliate, Allied Insulation, a MASCO Contractor Services company.

has anyone used Sears to remodel their kitchen?

Question by anonymous: has anyone used Sears to remodel their kitchen?
I need to remodel my house’s kitchen, including new appliances, cabinets, and flooring. I have no idea how to go about finding a reputable kitchen contractor, and I see Sears does remodels. Anyone have experience with them?

My parents used Sears to remodel their kitchen and it turned out great! It was a very unworkable kitchen before with a ton of cabinetry but little counter space. It now not only looks great but is very workable. I believe they did have a bit of trouble getting the exact appliances they wanted and did have to go to lowe’s or something but it all worked out in the end. Good luck!
