Excerpt: Kitchen Remodel in Hampton We love repeat clients! In the Spring of 2018, we were asked to update the exterior of this home in Hampton.

The new exterior looks great, and it will give the homeowner a carefree exterior for years to come. Check it out here: https://www.jimhicks.com/remodels/siding-and-trim-update/ We were delighted to hear from Janet and her sister Francine when it came time to remodel the kitchen and family room.

Archived; click post to view.
Excerpt: Andy and Jackie had a great sunroom at their home in Newport News. The problem was, it was too cold in the winter and too warm in the summer. Multiple sliding glass doors lining the walls leading out to the deck gave an unobstructed view, but they were very drafty. In the kitchen, the homeowners wanted to update the countertops and sink, eliminate the raised breakfast bar, and add a new slide-in electric range. New energy efficient windows and door were a must in the sunroom. We installed 10 new Low E/Argon filled double hung windows and one new sliding door. Above…

Pot Fillers are becoming more and more common in remodeled kitchens

A common fixture in restaurant kitchens, pot fillers are becoming more and more common in home kitchens because they are so practical and attractive. You can find both deck-mount pot filler faucets, which mount on the counter-top like a regular kitchen faucet, and wall-mount pot fillers, both of which install near the stove and have articulated arms that fold out over the stove when you want to fill a pot and fold neatly against the wall when not in use
