On the Level: October Events
October is a big month for us here at Distinctive Remodeling. My Production Manager, Aaron Oaks, and I will be attending the Remodeling Show in Baltimore from the 22nd to the 24th. This is a great, three-day event showcasing the latest products, tools, and services for the residential construction industry. We look forward to learning about the latest and greatest trends and resources in our industry and bringing it all back to homeowners right here in Raleigh. It’s also a time to meet this year’s Big50 winners and, as a 2013 Big50 winner myself, to attend the Big50 reunion. As the saying goes, “Once a Big50, always a Big50.”
Later this month, on October 30, Ron Limpic, Stephanie Ferguson, Aaron Oaks, and I will take on other building industry pros in a chili/wing cookoff. Sponsored by the Home Builders Association of Raleigh - Wake County, the sixth annual Grill 'N' Chili Challenge will pit us against 35 other teams; competitors will compete in “Best Chili” and “Best Wings” categories; we’re bringing our famous chili recipe and we’re ready to cook it up, talk a little trash, and walk away with First Place.
Please come out and see us! There will be live music, beer tasting, bonfires, and professional judging. Here’s how to register to attend.

Glazed Cabinets Are All the Rage on Pinterest—and in Our Shop
Lots of people are in love with glazed cabinets right now. A quick search on Pinterest results in thousands of pins for glazed cabinets. This look appeals to people because glazing can give new cabinets a vintage look, can tone down and add more depth to light-colored cabinets, and can highlight cabinets’ texture and detail.
White and light-colored cabinets have come back into style, but with the addition of new glazing techniques. Ron Limpic, Distinctive Remodeling’s Cabinet Shop Co-Manager, says, “Lately, we have been doing a lot of white opaque painted cabinets with brown glaze. How much glaze we put on is up to our customers. Some people like streaks in the glaze because it makes the cabinets look older, but some people like a less muddy look. That individual choice can be based on the age of the home but sometimes it’s just a personal preference.” Read More
Designer Kitchens Start Here
Behind the scenes, making every kitchen and bath remodel look distinctive, we have a secret weapon: Our cabinet shop team. Ron, Daniel, Donald, and Matt complete each stage of cabinet construction--from design to installation to finishing touches--with excellence.
That excellence translates to features like hidden pantries, corner solutions, and slide-out drawers. It also carries over to more than just kitchens and baths; these days, custom cabinets can go throughout the house, including laundry rooms, home offices, playrooms, entertainment rooms, and even garages.
With 100+ years of combined experience in custom cabinetry, our dedicated team has seen styles of cabinets come and go--and some come back again. That level of experience is one reason that Distinctive Remodeling owner Eddie Casanave is so proud of our cabinet shop team. Read More
"I cannot begin to express how happy we are with our kitchen renovation. The quality of work and the high level of customer attention that we experienced raises the bar for the rest of the contracting field. I cannot see myself going with any other company to service my home remodeling needs." — Darren R.
