  2. Deck-Mentor Ohio

    Compliments like this make all the hard work worth while. The Powell Remodeling Team is so proud to offer superior customer service and products. Thank you so much to all of our customers. If you liked your experience with Powell Remodeling why not tell your friends and neighbors.

    “Being a perfectionist makes it hard for me to hire outside help because of the fear of inferior work. I have built a few decks and porches for other people but didn’t have the time to build my own porch now. So searching for a high quality builder at a reasonable cost took some time.

    Well I found one!

    Russell Powell and his team of builders do an excellent job. They do great high quality work and they listen to ideas of what you want done. Even during the process of building they listen and explain everything they are doing. If there isn’t something you like they will change it. Like I said I am a perfectionist. I looked at some of their work online and asked them to come over and look at what I wanted done. And before you know it I was sold and they were building my porch.

    Thanks for a great job done…….”

    Sincerely:

    Bob Bennett


  3. Window Replacement – Northeast Ohio

    If you have stumbled upon this site you may be someone considering the benefits of window replacement. Perhaps you have noticed a significant cold draft coming from your windows, especially considering the intense winds we have had recently. Maybe you have noticed peeling paint or chipping and soft wood on your window frames. Some older windows become lose and can rattle in the frame causing not only more drafts of cold or hot air and the possibility of your window cracking or breaking but it is also noisy.

    Whatever the reason you are considering replacement windows Powell Remodeling has the information and the expertise for you. Throughout this article you will read about the benefits of window replacement, some of the cost effective solutions you can take until you are able to replace your windows, and some of the different types of windows that are available to you now, not to mention the cost benefits you can see with replacing old drafty windows with new energy efficient ones.

    I’ll start with the benefits you can consider when considering replacing your windows. Although the thought of doing a whole home replacement can be daunting and sound expensive it is a good idea to consider the savings you can obtain with a whole home replacement. Powell Remodeling offers discounted rates on window replacement when you purchase more than **** windows which can equal a huge savings in your pocket. Not only will you benefit from the cost savings by receiving discounted rates but you will also see a benefit in your energy bill that is much more significant when replacing all of your windows as opposed to just a few. Obviously every homeowners needs are different and you may have already started the process of window replacement, and in that case it is understandable you would not be in the market for whole home replacement. However if you are just starting to shop around this is a great process to consider as the benefits and cost savings largely outweigh those of slowly replacing single or double windows individually.

    Not only does replacing your windows increase your homes insulation properties it also increases the value and the curb appeal. New windows make a huge difference on the look and feel of your house inside and out. If you are replacing windows in an older home and want to keep the aesthetic value of your moldings Powell Remodeling can provide custom moldings to match those that are already in your home. We can also salvage existing moldings that may still be useable and thus bring the costs down even more.

    Since window replacement can be costly and we here at Powell Remodeling understand that sometimes this is something you need to save for, I want to provide some short term solutions you can utilize until you are able to save for the replacement you have in mind. One largely used technique that is helpful especially in our cold Cleveland weather is to place plastic over your windows and secure it using an easy to remove caulk that can be purchased at a local home repair store or even tape, however be cautious when using tape to seal your windows. It can leave a residue on your moldings that can be hard to remove or even peel off paint upon removal. Another good idea for securing your home from either cold winter air or hot summer heat is to make sure your storm windows are securely in place. The storm windows offer additional protection from wind and rain that can be drafty and also damage the wood in your window frames.

    Lastly I want to discuss the types of windows that are available on the market today. It can be overwhelming trying to educate yourself on the best windows available for the best price. The most effective and easiest way to learn of what will best fit your needs is to contact Powell Remodeling for an estimate and review of your current windows so that we can educate you on what is available and the costs you can expect when considering window replacement. In doing this we can provide you with not only the prices of the windows available and the specific differences in what you are looking for but we can also inspect the current condition of your windows and moldings as with replacement there can be significant rotting from years of rain and weather. Many people choose to first investigate the costs associated with window replacement on their own and we agree that this is an important step to knowing you are being given a proper price and a sturdy product. There are many websites available that you can search to provide you with information on cost and product differences.

    The overall the decision to replace your windows can be a stressful one but we at Powell Remodeling want to take that stress from you and provide you with effective and efficient service that meets your needs and budget.

  4. Kitchen Remodel

    Sometimes you have to turn a negative into a positive. If you have recently been affected by the severe weather now might be a good time for you to consider a remodel. If you have water damage to the inside of your home from a leak it may be covered by your homeowner’s insurance. What better time to review your options for a remodel. You will already have people in your house repairing the damage, and we hope it’s Powell Remodeling … but while we are there why not take advantage of that and turn your space into something you can really be proud of and love.

    Remodeling your kitchen can be a big job with many expenses and a lot of time investment. Many homeowners choose to take on this task themselves and while we applaud the Do-it-yourselfers out there some tasks, depending on your skill level, can really require a skilled tradesman who is knowledgeable. They are not only able to get the job done right but also if you aren’t familiar with all of the issues that could arise it can be dangerous or costly to complete a job yourself.

    Your kitchen is many times the heart of your home. It’s a place for family to gather, kids to do homework, friends to talk, and where warmth and love thrive. For many people a small outdated kitchen can yield just the opposite. It’s cramped, hard to maneuver, and stressful when more than a few people are in the area. Multitasking many jobs in a kitchen can become disorienting and demanding instead of fun.

    Opening up a kitchen and living room can not only change the aesthetics of a home but also the flow and ease of your day. It provides an open floor plan that is functional and allows you to multitask. Changing the look and feel of your home can offer many benefits other than just improving the appearance.

    Kitchen RemodelAs you can see in the picture to the left opening up a wall to offer a look through into the next room can be functional as well as pleasing to the eye. You can see that making a bar out of the space makes additional room for 4 stools on each side of the bar which is an added 8 seats for company. It also allows the light from the kitchen windows to shine through into the dining room making using electric lighting less necessary and is a more efficient use of natural light. The warm colors make the space feel comfortable and inviting, and the granite used not only looks elegant but offers easy clean up and rare staining.

     

    Kitchen Remodel by Powell RemodelingThere are many different ways to remodel your kitchen to allow for better functionality. Installing new cabinets and shelves can create a lot more space in a small kitchen and offer a space to hide trashcans or canned goods. Even dishwashers can now be hidden under the veneer of cabinet doors. Recessed lighting can be a great way to brighten up a kitchen as seen in the photo to the right. You can also see in the photo the tiered space by the sink offering a level to clean dishes and prepare meals and a level for others to sit and watch, help prepare, or do their own work while still being able to be near you and socialize. Since the kitchen tends to be a gathering place for socializing it is important for it to be functional to your needs and inviting for you and your friends and family.

    If kitchen renovation has often crossed your mind there is no better time than now to consider your options. Powell Remodeling has extensive experience and knowledge in all aspects of renovation and we are excited and eager to meet your specific needs. Whether you are looking for a simple remodel or a custom kitchen with all the bells and whistles we have what you need.

We will work with you to best meet your needs, dreams, and budget.

  6. Roof 44060

    If you live in the Cleveland, Ohio and have a leaky roof, call 440-953-1804 or submit to Get a Free Roof Estimate Today! because a leaky roof can cause damage to ceilings, walls and also your furnishings. To protect your home and contents from water damage, roofers install or repair roofs made of tar, asphalt and gravel, metal, rubber or thermoplastic or shingles made of asphalt, fiberglass, wood, slate, tile or other material.

    Powell Remodeling out of Mentor, Ohio has specialized as a Cleveland Roofer for over 20 years. Below we recommend the following install process for steep-slope roofs:

    Roofs with steep-slope rise more than 4 inches per horizontal foot. Steep-slope roofs in most residential areas are covered with shingles.

    To apply shingles:

    1. Lay, cut and tack 3-foot of ice guard over eves.
    2. Install roofing felt over the entire roof lengthwise.
    3. From bottom edge, nail overlapping shingles in rows covering the roof as straight as possible.
    4. Add boots around stacks, metal flashing in valleys (or ice guard) and metal flashing around chimney
    5. Cut the felt and shingles to fit around vent pipes and chimneys and also to fit intersecting roof surfaces.
    5. When two roof surfaces intersect or if shingles reach a chimney or vent pipe, nail or cement flashing strips of shingle or metal over the joints to make sure they are watertight.
    6. Cover exposed areas and nail heads with caulking or cement to prevent water leakage.
    7. Properly vent roof to protect home and wood.

    Follow a similar process to use metal shingles, tile or shakes.

    Below are some tips to purchase the correct Energy Star windows:

    Air Leaks

    Your windows can leak air, seal all of the gaps to maximize your home’s efficiency. Stopping drafts can reduce energy bills.

    Condensation

    Energy Star windows are more resistant to condensation. Take the following steps to minimize the risk of your window condensation. Submit to Get a Free Energy Evaluation Today or call 440-953-1804 and set up an estimate.

    *Insulate the space between the window frame and rough opening
    *Allow air flow over the window surface by choosing the correct window treatments
    *Manage your indoor humidity by venting your dryer, kitchen and bath fans directly outside

    In warm weather, exterior condensation can form. Cool air inside your home on a hot humid day can cause the temperature of the outside surface of your windows to drop below the dew point and leads to condensation.

    In warmer climates, a low SHGC is important for your windows that face South, East and West, you don’t want any extra heat from the sun. For all of your windows in warmer climates you want to choose a low U Factor. Low U Factors reduce your need for cooling and minimize heat loss in warmer climates.

    In hot climates, you want to shade your windows facing South.

    Remember shade in the summer and solar heat gain in the winter can reduce home’s energy use when planning to build a home or a major addition. Keep the windows facing West to a minimum to prevent overheating and work with windows to the South and make sure your roof overhangs are sized properly.

    Seasonal Shading

    Trees that lose their leaves in autumn do provide the shade in the summer when they are planted near windows that are facing South, East and West and let’s in the sun’s heat during the winter.
