Corefront Offers Tips On Getting Ready For Home Renovations

July 12, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Corefront, based in Calgary, Alberta, has published some blog posts to offer homeowners some tips on how to get ready for a home renovation. These include what to consider when doing a whole house renovation and kitchen countertop considerations. Corefront is a provider of home renovations in Calgary and neighbouring areas, particularly for the kitchen and bathroom.

Lewis Cowie, a spokesperson for Corefront, says, “Start off by keeping in mind the reason or problem that pushed you to renovate. Was it because of the ventilation, or maybe it was because of leakages. Once you start writing down the reasons, you’ll have a list. This list will be helpful in the future planning as it’ll let you know where to focus more to avoid problems in the future.”

Lewis Cowie is pointing out one of the important tips, which is to determine the reason for the home renovation. People will have different reasons for wanting a home renovation. Other tips include: considering one’s budget; conducting a research on interior and design; researching any possible restrictions for making a renovation in a residential area; and deciding on the payment methods to be used.

Another blog post by the kitchen renovations Calgary service provider discusses the various considerations to make when choosing granite and quartz counter-tops. Both granite and quartz are considered as the best material for kitchen counter-tops. Granite was the most favoured material during the 1980s and 1990s. However, quartz became the trend during the 21st century.

What homeowners need to know about quartz and granite counter-tops is that there are five main differences between the two materials. The first one has to do with appearance. Granite is available in various colours and stylish patterns, which means that no two counter-tops will be the same. It is considered to be the best choice for those who want a subtle or a standout slab. It is also the best material for those who are looking for counter-tops without seams.

On the other hand, quartz offers a great appearance. It is also available in several colours and patterns but the most common colours are copper, black, brown, white, gold, red, green, beige, and grey. The pattern of quartz will depend on the fine grounding of the material when the blending and pigmenting process is performed. Also, quartz has a consistent colour and texture. However, the seams may be visible and it lacks the one-of-a-kind uniqueness of granite.

Meanwhile, granite counter-tops are more difficult to maintain than quartz counter-tops. Granite will need to be cleaned everyday with soap and water. It also gets stained easily with oils and acids, and the stains are difficult to remove. Granite counter-tops will have to be resealed once a year to ensure that they will last long. In contrast, quartz requires less maintenance. While some cleaning and washing will also be needed, the stains are less visible on dark coloured quartz. The seams are also less noticeable on dark coloured slabs and unlike granite, there is no need to reseal.

In terms of durability, granite is mainly resistant to stains, scratches, chemicals, and heat. However, it is a porous material and this allows stains to damage it if the stains are not removed as soon as possible. On the other hand, quartz is more durable than granite because it is harder. Also, because it is not porous, quartz counter-tops are usually free of germs and bacteria. However, quartz should not be exposed to excessive heat. Very hot pans and utensils can leave a burn mark that would be very difficult to remove.

It is a family-owned local enterprise that has made sure it has highly qualified and skilled personnel who careful attend to every detail of the renovation to make sure that everything is in agreement with the client’s specifications.
