Happy August Everyone from Capell Flooring



Dear Friends,

Here’s hoping that your summer is going well! For many of us, the beginning of August brings a reminder that summer (or at least summer vacation) is almost over. It’s a month of scrambling to get in a couple more beach trips, barbeques, campfires, pool days, or anything else that signals summer for you. Enjoying your August to the fullest is a great way to ensure you don’t regret missing out on summer.

It’s also the motivation behind our Zero Regrets Guarantee. We know that choosing new flooring is a big project, and we don’t want you to regret missing out on an amazing new look for your home. That’s why our team will help you choose exactly the right product and style for your needs, and our expert installers will ensure that it’s perfectly placed in your home’s unique floor plan. Our goal isn’t just to sell a bit of carpet or tile; it’s to become your trusted flooring provider for life. Summer may be coming to a close, but we’re in this for the long haul – and we’re delighted to have you as a part of the Capell Flooring and Interiors family.

Thanks once again for checking out this month’s edition of the Neighborhood Advisor, and we hope you have a wonderful August.

Your friend,

Matt Capell

Keeping Renovation Stress Away | E-Neighborhood Advisor


Are you thinking about remodeling a room or area of your home – or maybe you already have a remodel scheduled? Day-to-day life can be stressful enough, and renovations even more so. Here are some tips to help keep that stress down.

Educate Yourself on the Project

When it comes to renovations, you want (NEED!) to know as much as possible. Educate yourself on everything about the project, from the scope of the project, the professionals required, the bylaws and licenses needed, and more.

Learn About The Contractor

Take the time to learn all you can about a contractor before hiring them. Know whether they will handle all tasks with their crew, or if they plan to hire subcontractors. Be sure that all companies (contractors and subcontractors) have the proper licensing and insurance.
Also, know what your homeowner’s insurance will and won’t cover. During your research, ask for references and look online for reviews about the companies you are thinking about hiring.



Know The Details

Get clear about the project’s steps, timeline, and detailed costs. Ask about any unexpected expenses that might arise.
Depending on the extent of your renovation, some issues may only be discovered after the removal of walls, floors, and fixtures. Knowing about potential issues can help prevent some unexpected add-ons. (A good contractor will offer this information without you having to ask for it.)

Make Final Decisions Early

Before your project begins, be as decisive as possible about the parameters of the project. Making changes to the project design, materials, appliances, fixtures, etc. after it has started can cost much more, and extend completion deadlines beyond the initial timeline expectations.
When establishing the details of your project, be as open with your contractors as possible. For example, if you are struggling to visualize the completed project or want to see materials ahead of time, make sure the contractor knows.
Communicating openly helps prevent unexpected issues.

Plan, Plan, Plan!

Everybody’s life gets thrown out of the comfort zone during a renovation, and that can strain relationships. During all the steps above – vetting the contractor, planning your desired reno, and finalizing all costs and decisions – be sure to discuss and agree on things with your partner.
No matter what, when the renovation is happening, remember to breathe. It will be over before you know it!

Getting Food-Ready for a Power Outage | E-Neighborhood Advisor


Refrigerators and freezers are normally working hard to keep temperatures ideal for our food, but what if the power goes out?
In an emergency power outage situation, there's no way to know how long the power will remain off. It can also be difficult to predict whether you’ll be in a “typical” power outage situation, where you’re able to get more food, or a more dire scenario. Here’s how to cope either way:

Before The Power Goes Out

Be sure the temperature inside your appliances is where it needs to be: below 0 degrees Fahrenheit in the freezer, and 35 to 38 degrees Fahrenheit in the refrigerator. Add a proper fridge or freezer thermometers inside each refrigerator & freezer that you own (including a separate thermometer in the freezer compartment of the fridge).
In the event of a power outage, thermometers will come in handy to check the internal temperature when the power returns. Add large containers of water to the freezer, like empty pop bottles, to help keep the temperature cold as long as possible.



While You’re Without Power

Track how long the power is off and keep the cold in as long as possible. Do not open the fridge or freezer while the power is off in order to prevent premature warming. Unopened refrigerators can only keep food safely cool for about four hours, and full freezers can hold their temperature for approximately 48 hours.

When The Power Comes Back On

As soon as the power returns, check the temperature inside your appliances. If the temperature stays above 40-degrees Fahrenheit for more than two hours, dispose of any perishables: leftovers, meat, poultry, seafood, milk, yogurt, sour cream, butter, soy and nut milks, tofu, eggs, cut, prewashed and cooked fruit and vegetables, and condiments.
For freezers, check every package. If the temperature is safely below 40 degrees Fahrenheit and the food still contains ice crystals, then it is safe to refreeze, but if it goes above 40 degrees follow the same procedure as the refrigerator. If food is no longer frozen but is at a safe temperature, then it needs to be cooked. Depending what you have, this may be a good time to consider soups, stews, and preparing precooked meals that can be frozen and reheated when it’s time to eat them. Those precooked meals are good to have on hand for busy nights and take-to-work lunches – especially after a trying situation like a power outage!

Area Rug Ideas from Capell Flooring and Interiors



The room is painted, the furniture is laid out, and the d├ęcor accents are in place. The hardwood you had installed or updated is gorgeous! Now which runner or area rug will look best? Here’s what to consider.

Size

Sometimes the area rug will be the largest and most central item in the room. You will want to decide on minimum and maximum dimensions, along with the position in the room, so that your area rug doesn’t overtake or get lost in the space. If you haven’t decorated the room yet, sometimes designing the room around an area rug you absolutely love is a good place to start.  

Color

The right color to match and balance your room is essential. You can choose monochromatic tones, dual-toned multicolor designs in florals, shapes, and patterns of many styles. For rooms filled with pattern and colors, solids or monochromatic area rugs are often a better choice. You can also choose area rugs in order to complement or extend a signature wall color.


Texture 

What we feel beneath our feet is as important as what we see to the overall comfort and hominess of a room. When choosing your area rug, be sure you like the texture of the material it’s made from as much as you like the color and design.

Durability  

When choosing a material, consider how well the carpet will withstand expected foot traffic. For example, an area rug beneath the table in a formal dining room will not have as much foot traffic on a daily basis as a runner in the main hall, or an area rug in front of a sofa where your family spends the most time.
The more you consider the intended space for an area rug, as well as the daily wear and tear, the color, and the way it will feel beneath your toes, the more you will enjoy that rug for as long as possible.

How Are Your Barbeque Skills? | E-Neighborhood Advisor


It has been said that barbequing is the art of getting the perfect temperature, cooking time, and flavor – without overcooking. But if you’re not careful, the barbeque can get too hot before any food is added, preventing ideal cooking conditions.
Grilling with charcoal can be rewarding, but also quite challenging – it’s not as simple as lighting a fire and tossing on some meat! There are many different ways to set up your grill: single-level fire, two-level fire, modified two-level (half-grill) fire, banked fire, and double-banked fire.
Even the shape, depth, and circumference of the grill can have an affect on how your meal turns out. For more details about charcoal fires, click here.



For the best barbeque experience, don’t forget these tips: 
• Always start with a clean grill. Brush debris off the grill when it's hot with a long-handled wire grill brush to remove any debris from prior meals. Be sure to look for any bristles that may have separated from the brush before you put your meat on the grill!
• Reduce the chances of your food sticking by oiling the grill with vegetable oil. Use long tongs to rub a paper towel soaked in vegetable oil over the grilling rack.
• A chimney starter can be a great tool for starting a charcoal fire. Add crumpled paper on the bottom, then fill with charcoal. Light the paper and the coals will be ready for grilling in about 20 minutes without the use of lighter fluid.
If you’re seeking gas grill setup tips, visit this site.

Here’s hoping your barbeque get-togethers are filled with the best of times with family and friends!
