We live at the shore between the bay and ocean. At times, the winds are horrendous and can drive into the windows at an angle. The problem is at our sliding glass door and inside, where we have a leak affecting the ceiling of our gable roof where the inside wall of the sliding glass door meets the ceiling. We tried adjusting the gutters by pitching them, and still have a leak. I was told a leak can start anywhere…Can you help?
Way before you ever wield a sledgehammer, the best place to start is with a thorough, clear-eyed assessment of your kitchen’s current state and what features and functions you require in a remodel.
Kitchen design is a very specific art, so you’d also be wise to consult with a designer certified by the National Kitchen and Bath Association, who will have the know-how to create solutions that fit your budget as well as your lifestyle (and that includes keeping the actual remodel moving along so that you can get back to actually using your kitchen as soon as possible).
From there, what’s tackled first will depend on the extent of the remodel to which you’ve committed. Just take care not to create extra problems and expense with such whoppers as moving plumbing around and going into walls. And if your kitchen has “good bones,” capitalize on them with smart updates that make the most of your remodeling dollars.
