Leaky Roof May Be Aid No home-owner is happy to find he has a leaky roof, but it's a fact that prompt discovery of leaks can be a blessing in disguise. First, the early discovery of a leak in an old roof lets the homeowner prevent serious damage to tt« interior of his house by re- roofing right away. Second, he can choose colorful esphalt shingles for the new roof. Chances are that the old roof has given many years of trouble-free service, and was applied before today's exciting pastel, solid and blended colors were available. Re- roofing in one of these up-to-date colors results in a brighter, more attractive home that can give a lift to the entire neighborhood, Another advantage of mooting with modern colors available in asphalt shingles is that the new room can be used as a key color In choosing a new decorating scheme for the rest of the house. Third, the home-owner can stop worrying about leaks after the re- roofing job is done. Aspahlt shingles are durable and give a tight roof which 1 will resist years of harsh weather in all seasons. Why a completely new roof? Why not patch up the old one? The National Bureau of Standards has the answer: "A single'appar- ent leak in a badly weathered roof," the bureau says, "is probable evidence of other leaks that have not been noticed and is usually the fore-runner of other, larger leaks that will ap pear in a relatively short time." The bureau adds that locating the leaks in an old roof is difficult and that walking around on the roof to find and repair leaks terquently results in starting new ones. For these reasons, an old, weathered roof should be completely reroofed, since attempting to patch it is generally a waste of time, labor, and materials.

Wood Cabinets In Kitchen Is Latest Trend Eighty-Eigh't Percent of JN ew Homes Follow This Design The major "home shows" in cities all over the United States have reflected a dominant preference for the warmth and beauty of wood cabinets in the kitchen in what designers and fashion writers have termed the trend to the "furniture look." The trend shows up in the style and appeal of model wood kitchens in major furniture, builder and home expositions. It is further buttressed by the recent release o£ a U. S. Government survey showing that 88 per cent of new homes have wood cabinets in the kitchen. Referring to the "wide acceptance of wood cabinetry," a daily trade paper in the home goods field reports exhibits at the major expositions show that "kitchen cabinet producers have intensified their efforts to create the furniture look." Many Finishes Used Popular furniture finishes have been adoptee! by wood cabinet makers, the article points out, including a fruttwood finish on maple, honey and cinnamon tones on other hardwoods and charcoal and pink| stains on softwood cabinets. Strengthening the trend to wood kitchen cabinets and the "furniture look" are the following points, in the view of many observers: 1. The increasing tendency to regard kitchen- cabinets as furniture, 2. the variety of styles, which wood kitchen cabinets can assume in their basic design and in the choice of hardware, finish and accessories, • -3. the compatibility of wood kitchen cabinets and built-in appliances, 4. the "open plan" in'architec- ture in which the'kitchen may be. visible from adjacent rooms, requiring a-unity of decor with the rest of the home, • 5. the wide variety of sizes and designs in wood- kitchen cabinets which simplifies kitchen planning, 6. the emergence of the kitchen as the focal point of family life, requiring a warm and pleasant atmosphere, and 7: the ease of maintaining wood kitchen cabinets. Similar to Furniture That the; emphasis on the "furniture look" is n'o accident is evidenced by the pattern of manufacturing in the wood kitchen cabinet' industry. The plants are similar to furniture plants with the same kind of machinery, craftsmanship, and production line efficiency and economy. The conclusion on the part of many leading designers and decorators is that the "furniture look" in today's Ititchen is the' dominant favorite and will remain so for a long time to come. Wrought Iron Is Investment In Home Beauty .The grace and richness of wrought iron railings and columns can do much to enhance the appearance and value of your home. Modern methods have greatly reduced the' costs involved in the fabrication • of wrought iron. In jfact, the cost of wrought iron railings and columns is often' less than ' masonry and wood where good design and construction practice is followed, Adyantagei of Wrought Iron While'wrought iron railings and columns offer, a grace and charm not duplicated iin other structural forms,j.hisjs but one of many advantages. They are equal or superior in structural strength to wood, afford no gathering places for destructive moisture and concealed rotting. They are compact and do not require heavy bases and construction necessary where masonry is used. They are quickly and easily installed. Wrought iron railings can be used in many places where wood railings are impractical and masonry would be too costly, such as around uncovered platforms. Landscape By Direction The best plans for remodeling a house include careful thought about orientation. Just as when you plan a new house, there are proper places for picture windows and window walls, paved patios and terraces, covered porches, roof overhangs, i garage or carport, a fence or latticework—even trees aud shrubs. The right location for such in* provements can add comfort, econ>my of operation and lasting value to your house. While it is not practicable to ;urn an existing house on its foundation, many of the advantages that might- be obtained by such drastic orientation are possible Jirough the right planning of additions or alterations. Aside -from making the most of a view—distant or garden variety- orientation can be used to combat prevailing winds and to control the hot summer sun as well as to capture desirable breezes and the warmth of the winter sun. This is largely a matter of studying the compass directions in rela tion to your lot. Here is what you can do about the way these directions affect your house: NORTHEAST—Sun exposure is short. Best solution is shading by walls, latticework, high fences or low trees. Awnings help. EAST—Exposure is intense. Tali .and medium trees are needed. Oth er solutions (in their order of effectiveness) are a porch or versa dan, awnings, reflective screens roof overhang. SOUTHEAST — A proper roof overhang is the best solution. Others are reflective screens and awnings. Avoid ground slabs, such as paved terraces, that reflect the heat against walls. This is a gooc side of the house for large windows, SOUTHWEST — Both tall and medium trees are needed.
