Planning a Patio: Things to Consider

March 1st, 2013

As with any major improvement or addition to your home, when you hire a reputable professional to design and build your patio it is their job to contact the local building department in your area to find out what the building codes, zoning and setbacks from the property lines are in your town.

Not all towns have the same codes and in fact, some municipalities may not require a building permit at all for patio construction. The professional will need to contact the town before they finalize plans for your patio. Often, towns require that the professional submit a copy of the plans for approval before a building permit will be issued and construction can begin.

If the plans do not meet the town code, the professional modifies them and the plans are resubmitted for approval. Any applicable fees required by the town for permits will be applied to the cost of the project.

If you want to check with your town yourself before you hire a professional, they will generally have printed guidelines for you to follow. Again, the professional you hire should be able to tell you what you can and cannot build before they begin.

Taxes

How much your property taxes will increase depends on how much you spend on the project and how much your home’s assessed value increases because you added a patio. This varies by town so there’s no blanket amount nationwide. Once the work is finished, the town will reassess the value of your home and increase your taxes accordingly.

Check with the tax assessor’s office in your town for advice on how much of an increase you can expect. You might want to factor that increase into your budget before you hire a professional to draw up plans and begin work. That way, you can adjust your budget and possibly, adjust the size of your patio if the additional taxes are more than you want to incur.

Outdoor Lighting Ideas and Options

February 22nd, 2013

Whether you use your outdoor living space for entertaining, relaxation or both, you don’t want the fun to end when the sun goes down. As you explore deck and patio design ideas, consider that the right outdoor lighting ideas and options will help beautify the space and ensure it can be a ’round-the-clock destination.

One of the simplest outdoor lighting touches you can add to your patio, deck or hardscape is lantern table lighting. Candle lanterns will add the same soft, elegant glow as normal candles, but they won’t blow out in the slightest breeze. Kerosene lanterns can provide the same lighting style as candle lanterns, but they’ll burn longer.

Staying with the lantern theme, Asian-inspired vellum-paper lanterns housing votive candles can provide an elegant touch to any nighttime outdoor gathering. Another Asian-inspired design is hanging paper origami lanterns. Just place battery-powered lights in these and hang them throughout the space for a touch of whimsy.

Many people add holiday-style strands of lights to their outdoor space. These can be a lovely touch on their own, or you can cover them with colored shades for a design that’s more evergreen.

Flaming tiki torches are a familiar touch in backyards across the land. They can also provide a defense against mosquitos.

Placing candles in large hurricane vases, then decorating the outside with tissue paper is another simple and elegant idea for outdoor lighting.Lastly, consider combining contrasting elements by placing floating candles in a large bowl or a vase filled with water.

How To Add Curb Appeal to Your Yard

February 15th, 2013

Curb appeal is all about first impressions, whether you’re trying to impress prospective buyers or put a smile on your own face whenever you pull up to your house.

Try to look at your yard objectively and analyze its logic and aesthetics. Where does your eye land first—on your latest horticultural mishap, a spectacular detail or nowhere at all? Is there a focal point such as a colorful herbaceous bed or specimen tree? Do the plantings complement the architecture? Is there a logical flow from sidewalk to door and from front to back? Is it obvious how to get to the main entrance? Do the various plantings and design elements feel balanced and unified? Do they form a bold, uncluttered statement? Is everything just a mess?

Identify the major problem or missed opportunity you want to address and make that the starting point for your design plan. Try these solutions:

Get a Haircut. Overgrown foundation plantings can block light from entering your house and detract from your architectural details. If you’ve inherited a mature landscape with your house, start by giving the leggy shrubs a haircut, removing dead or diseased plants, and splitting clumps of perennials and transplanting them to border beds.

Create a Focal Point. Whether it’s a traditional lawn with blooming borders, a streamlined contemporary garden, or a formal garden with strong architectural lines, every outdoor space needs a focal point that tells the eye where to look first. This element can be almost anything—specimen tree, sculpture, patterned hardscape, a perfect bench, fountain, you name it—as long as it’s bold enough to set the tone for the rest of the design. “One loud exclamation point, like one anchoring tree, helps make sense of everything,” says Risa Edelstein, president of the Ecological Landscaping Association.

Mix It Up. The shrubs in your front yard don’t have to all hug the house, especially if you have a home with low foundation walls, and they don’t have to be traditional evergreens. Try planting a deep border of evergreens interspersed with flowering shrubs. Group plants by height and then layer the groupings for visual interest. If you have an older home with a high foundation, you probably still want to hide that expanse of lower wall with plantings, but make sure they’re at least three feet from the foundation to prevent moisture issues with your house.

TIPS FOR CLEANING AND REPAIRING GUTTERS

November 8th, 2012

US Aluminum Services wants to share some helpful tips to maintain gutters yourself!

These basic tips from Brad Staggs, Ask DIY home repair expert, answer commonly asked questions about cleaning and repairing gutters.

>> There are just a few steps to follow in order to maintain gutters yourself. My first recommendation is to climb a ladder and clean the goop out of the gutters. Pay particular attention to the downspout. If leaves and debris are clogging it, water won’t drain properly, and along with mildew and mud you’ll end up with sagging gutters.

>> Another thing you want to look at are the sources of any leaks, including holes in the gutters and cracked caulking in the seams. Use an old chisel to scrape the old caulking out and dry the area thoroughly. Then use new bead silicon sealing to keep water from getting down behind the gutters and rotting the boards.

>> Once you’ve finished with the mechanics, you can attend to cleaning the gutters. The best way is with a pressure washer, which you can rent or even purchase for anywhere from $60 to hundreds of dollars. Follow the instructions that come with the washer to the letter; usually the washer can be used with garden-hose water or some type of cleaner. A pressure washer won’t hurt the gutters provided you’ve secured the gutters with screws or new spikes.

>>If the gutters are rusting, they are very old. They’ve moved to aluminum and vinyl gutters now, and they don’t rust. You might want to consider new gutters. But if you’re going to stay with the old ones, get all the rust off, sand them down, paint them with a good primer and then with a good-quality rust-inhibiting paint.
