KTS Cabinets a Trusted Saskatoon Kitchen expert tip on Refacing Kitchen Cabinets

posted by Trusted Saskatoon    |   July 16, 2014 19:39

Kevin at KTS Custom cabinets will work with you to create your dream kitchen...within your budget....and the process will be smooth and painless. If you are looking for a show stopping custom kitchen that combines excellent workmanship at a really good price then KTS is the perfect choice for you ...but if your budget is limited and your kitchen layout works for you, they will transform your tired old cabinets into a place you won't recognize in as little as a few days! KTS Custom Cabinets are your Trusted SASKATOON KITCHEN EXPERTS!

Here they share a tip on Refacing Kitchen Cabinets:

Why Reface Kitchen Cabinets?

"We are very pleased with the work that was done on our kitchen. The finished product shows the planning and care taken to make sure everything was first class. Your workmen did a very excellent job of keeping our kitchen area orderly. The skill of your crew was outstanding."
- Len R.

Remodeling a kitchen by tearing out and replacing all the cabinets is costly, messy, and time consuming.

KTS Custom Cabinets can reface your kitchen cabinets, instead of replacing them, to upgrade your kitchen’s quality, beauty and value, while allowing you to:

Save Time – We complete your kitchen in one week or less, while a general contractor may disrupt your household for as long as four to eight weeks to tear out and remodel your kitchen.

Save Money – KTS Custom Cabinets can create a stunning kitchen you’ll be proud of, for just over half the cost of a typical full custom kitchen remodel.

Improve Quality – Our beautiful solid woods, durable multi-step finishes, attractive hardware, and expert installation upgrades your kitchen to the quality of high-end custom cabinetry, enhancing its beauty and value. A striking kitchen can help you sell your home faster and at a higher price.

Improve Functionality – KTS Custom Cabinets can modify existing cabinets and add many of the modern features and accessories available with new cabinetry.

Add More Space – You’re not necessarily limited to your existing kitchen layout when you reface. It may be possible to reconfigure or add new cabinets perhaps even an island to expand your storage and counter space. Our kitchen design experts can help you see the possibilities.

Environmentally Friendly – Any kitchen cabinet size, grade, or configuration can be refaced and renewed, which means less scrap going into the landfill, and less new raw material being consumed, compared to tearing out and replacing cabinets.

Salvage Good Quality Older Cabinetry – Many older homes have built-in solid wood cabinetry that is superior in quality and durability to the inexpensive new stock cabinets available today. It is often a better choice to renew these older kitchen cabinets with a quality solid wood refacing system, rather than tearing out and replacing them with economy cabinets. 

“But, I want new cabinets...”

Kitchen Remodels Keeping the Same Layout

In some instances, such as when homeowners are gutting their previous kitchen and knocking down walls, new cabinets are certainly the way to go. But most kitchen remodels are completed without much change to the existing layout, due to space constraints or locations of doors and windows. These kitchens are ideal candidates for homeowners to consider refacing.

Trusted Saskatoon Plumbing Pro Perfection Plumbing Serves with Army-like Efficiency

posted by Trusted Saskatoon    |   July 14, 2014 15:48

Perfection Plumbing was founded in 1996 and is locally owned and operated. They are different than any other plumbing company in the area. In 2001 they became affiliated with a national plumbing association called Plumbers Success International. Through this affiliation, they are able to bring valuable products and services to clients that they cannot obtain from any other plumbing service company in the area.

Perfection Plumbing are Trusted Saskatoon Plumbers on the Saskatoon Directory


Here they share a tip on Trusted Saskatoon Plumber Company Serves with Army-like Efficiency:

Having faulty water pipes can cause a lot of headaches, especially if it results in massive basement plumbing, or worse a $13,000 repair bill. Far horrible things can happen, though, like the incident Jerome Lessard reported for Trentonian back in August 2010:

A two-kilometre long pipeline connects the world's most northern military base to its fresh water source.

Trusted Saskatoon Plumber Company Serves with Army-Like Efficiency


A few weeks ago, one of the two pumps at the Upper Dumbell Lake broke, reducing the amount of fresh water available for civilians and troops stationed at Canadian Forces Station (CFS) Alert.

Military divers were called to Alert for three weeks to help fix the pump.

People should stop worrying that similar things can happen to them as residential plumbing systems are far less complicated than the one they use in the Arctic area. When it comes to emergencies like blocked drainage or water pipe leakage, however, Canadians can be assured that their trusted Saskatoon plumber company will deliver the same kind of service as the elite team of military men did for the busted water pumps at CFS Alert.

Canadians can think of plumbers as soldiers trained to battle the toughest of pipes and water system adversaries there is. Little do people know that plumbers, before getting their licenses, undergo a heavy 4-year apprenticeship from master plumbers, who can be considered as their drill sergeant, from whom they learn the ropes of the business. At the same time apprentice plumbers take classroom instruction in skills, like reading blue prints, and must pass an exam to obtain their license.

Saskatoon plumbing service providers make sure that every plumber carrying their name have the correct industry knowledge and are equipped with the right tools to get the job done. Companies, such as Perfection Plumbing & Drain Cleaning Ltd., do not let their plumbers go into war without the necessary set of artilleries, including pliers, basin and pipe wrench, and compression sleeve puller, among others. They also make sure that their uniformed men would get to their place of assignments on time to get the job done in the quickest and most effective way possible.

Professional plumbers do all the necessary processes to completely assess every situation to find the root cause of the problem and see the extent of the damages. They will also explain to clients the real situation, the options available to them, and the procedures they have to do to give the needed fix. Plumbers may not be assigned to warzones, per se, but they’re certainly soldiers that households can rely on.

Tammy Wandzura a Trusted Saskatoon Mortgage Broker Expert welcomes Summer

posted by Trusted Saskatoon    |   July 14, 2014 10:34

Purchasing your home is one of the biggest and most important decisions that you can make. Tammy Wandzura your Trusted Saskatoon Mortgage broker and the team at Elite Mortgage Choice believe that buying a home should also be an exciting experience with little to NO stress. By trusting your Mortgage Broker, you are ensuring that any stress you may have had in previous encounters can be eliminated!

Tammy truly believes that all you should have to worry about is opening the door to your new home for the very first time.

Here Tammy welcomes Summer:

With Summer (finally) upon us – the real estate world slows down a touch. Everyone is packing up and heading to the lake, the mountains or on their annual family vacation.

It is absolutely normal to see Real Estate sales Slow down in July and August for these reasons alone.

Our summer is short and everyone’s entire focus is on enjoying the sunshine and their vacation time.

As your Saskatoon Mortgage Broker I can pre-approve your mortgage application and RATE HOLD You for 120 days (4 months)

**that locks your rates into November 2014 already! This allows you to lock in these amazing Summer time rates.

You can start shopping for the perfect home once things settle down- even waiting until the rush of back to school is complete!

Fall is a very (very) busy time in the Real estate world.

Most professionals in this industry will tell you that Fall can be as busy as the Spring months and sometimes even busier.

Most people work hard towards getting into homes before the snow flies and everyone wants to be settled long before Christmas.

Locking in a 5 year fixed at 2.99% today allows you the flexibility to take your time and find the perfect home. Should rates go up - your rate is safe until your rate hold expires. If rates go down we will lower the rate. It’s that simple! Visit my website today at and APPLY online. Or call my office at 306.933.3386

I can work behind the scenes as you are enjoying the sun and sand of summer.

Did you know:

Many lenders are changing their advertising this summer to reflect “Cash backs”. I have seen ads showing “Cash back” up to $15,000.00. These mortgage products are available through the Mortgage Broker channel as well. Rates will always be higher with a Cash back mortgage; because the reality is that lender has to find a way to earn that money back with interest. You are paying long term for that cash, it is not free money.

Through the Broker channel the Cash Back mortgages are going to have better rates than the Local lender.  **But the rates will still be higher than the lowest advertised rate.  Call me today for more info if a Cash back mortgage is something that you are interested in

Did you know:

Many lenders are advertising that they will pay the fees and penalties to renew your mortgage.  If your renewal is coming due there is never a penalty to move to another lender.  Renewal time is a perfect time to consider what other lenders have to offer with both rate and product. There is no cost to moving from one lender to another at renewal time. No legal fees and no cost.

Is your Mortgage Renewal coming due?  Call me today!

The key is to review the information and determine what options are available on the market for you

Did you know:

As your Saskatoon Mortgage Broker I work for you not the Bank.  We have very strong relationships with all of our lenders and Banks.  This allows us to be experts in everything mortgage related.  Offer you the best rates, the best products, and the fastest turn around time and service.  But at the end of the day our main objective is ensuring the client is getting the best product.  We work for you and with you today and for the life of your mortgage to ensure that you are mortgage free sooner than later all while meeting your other financial goals.

Have a GREAT Summer and do not hesitate to contact me with any questions

Best Regards

Tammy Wandzura

Winmar your Trusted Saskatoon Disaster services experts call in extra crews from across Canada to assist with floods

posted by Trusted Saskatoon    |   July 13, 2014 19:34

They can handle any and all types of water damage, fire damage, smoke damage, wind damage, hail damage, and mould damage. If you've had any type of property damage to your home, call them now for a free quote!

If your life has been turned up-side-down by a catastrophe, you can count on Winmar, Property Restoration Specialists.

Winmar Property Restoration Specialists are your Trusted Saskatoon Disaster Services Professionals

Restoration company calls in extra crews from across Canada:

One basement flooded with 8 feet of water, others growing mould.
Property restoration specialists have arrived from across western Canada as the cleanup from the flood continues.

About 60 workers have come to southeastern Saskatchewan from Vancouver, Calgary and Saskatoon to help the Winmar office in Yorkton keep up with calls to deal with many flooded basements.

Jason Thibodeau is one of the co-owners and said the extra crews have kept them from falling behind but they're still working 12-14 hours, doing four to eight jobs per day.

The Yorkton Winmar office alone has received over 200 claims from Redvers to Maryfield, as far south as Kamsack and into Manitoba.

All resources are going toward flood claims and other projects have been put on the back burner for now.

"All the homeowners have been quite nice with it and understanding with the fact of all these individuals with water in their basements," said Thibodeau.

The worst basement he has seen was in Dunleath, east of Yorkton, where over eight feet of water filled the home right up to the main floor.

"Because it's been a week now we're getting into situations where we're dealing with mold, contamination, stuff like that," said Thibodeau.

Homeowners are not only dealing with structural damage but emotional damage as well, having lost some personal items and keepsakes. Thibodeau advises those people still in the process of cleaning up their flooded basements to save any pictures and keepsakes that may not have been damaged before the mould starts to grow.

Homeowners are also advised to keep an eye on their mould situation and may have to find a place to stay temporarily while it gets cleaned up. Mould can affect everyone's health, especially the young, elderly and those with allergies. Symptoms include a dry throat, bloody nose, headaches and sneezing.

Thibodeau said a proactive approach would be tearing out the carpet which is often the main source of odour.


WINMAR Saskatoon’s experienced and certified staff provide full service restoration for all types of losses; flood/water, fire, wind, mould, sewer, vehicle impact and board-up services. With a 24 hours service, you can count on them to always come through for you. Winmar ARE your Trusted Saskatoon Disaster Services Professionals   


Trusted Saskatoon Financial Services partner Armstrong Wealth Management Group tip on Key Person Insurance

posted by Trusted Saskatoon    |   July 13, 2014 14:28

Armstrong Wealth Management Group at Richardson GMP recommends solutions focused on protecting and enhancing your wealth to help you live life. On your terms.

You can find them on the Saskatoon Directory in our Trusted Saskatoon Financial Services category.

Here they share a tip on Key Person Insurance - Is Your Business Protected?

As a business owner or executive you understand how critical certain employees are to your organization, but have you considered what would happen if one of your star performers became disabled or suffered death? There are many situations where insurance can provide protection for your company.

What is key person insurance and why it’s critical for business continuance?

Key person insurance provides working capital to meet immediate cash needs for a business in the event of the death of a business owner or a key executive. Personnel who hold key positions in the firm are easy to identify: their knowledge, experience, judgment, reputation and skills as well as the external relationships they have built make them invaluable to the future success of the business. This key person may have a particular skill set which is difficult, if not impossible, to replicate in the short term. The death of such an individual results in the loss of a key member of the management team and can have a severe financial impact.

Key person insurance can provide the following benefits:

·         Cash flow to hire the best replacement;

·         Income to withstand delays, disruption and reduced efficiency;

·         Working capital to overcome credit issues and competitor attacks; 

·         Resources to prevent customers losing confidence in the company; and

·         Capital protection for the heirs of the shareholder or business owner who are relying on the sale of an ongoing enterprise to fund their future.


Key person insurance provides many potential benefits to the business, the business owner and the owner’s family. It helps to address the immediate financial impact of the loss of a key contributor to the firm, and provides a financial bridge during a period of disruption and change of ownership for the company’s shareholders. The value of these benefits to the business in the event of the death of the owner-manager or other key executive will usually far exceed the cost of the life insurance.

To learn more about key person insurance and explore whether it is appropriate for you and your business, please contact your Richardson GMP Investment Advisor at 306.385.6303 or by email at

Reed Security Trusted Alarm and Security Expert share why you DON'T POST YOUR VACATION PLANS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

posted by Trusted Saskatoon    |   July 9, 2014 11:27

REED SECURITY are Trusted and they are recipients of 2 x 2012 SABEX AWARDS and a 2014 SABEX Award along with NSBA awards recognizing excellence in business.



Summer Security Tips 

Social Media is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family, but don't forget it's very public. Thieves also like reading about your vacation plans and can often track down your address.

AVOID POSTING: "packing for the trip", "just got to lake", or "just landed", etc.

Break'in's rarely occur when you are at home - so in addition to arming your Reed Security alarm system you will want to make it look like you are still there.

  • Cancel the newspaper
  • Have someone cut the grass and water your flowers
  • Have someone pick up your mail
  • Park an unused vehicle in the driveway
  • Install exterior motion lights (and make sure you test them)
  • Install timers for interior lights
  • Consider ALARM.COM Interactive Services. Control your lights, locks, blinds, temperature, and video cameras remotely
