Sliding Door Installation

sliding-door-company-wellbuilt-company-new-york-city

The Installation of these custom built sliding doors allowed the owner of this New York apartment to close off and conceal the kitchen when not being used. Wellbuilt added an extra design feature by installing a wood valance to conceal the track hardware from view.

The great thing about these custom sliding doors is that they come in a range of styles and are delivered ready to install in a matter of hours. The doors were purchased from "sliding door company" and installed by the skilled craftsman at Wellbuilt.

Reclaimed Filing Cabinet

Here's a new green installation project we just wrapped up where we've repurposed an old filing cabinet and added a little flavor to it with a marble counter top. This area will serve as a side bar next to the kitchen. Its going to be a fun zone to entertain guests before and after warm meals in this City Apartment. Bottoms up...!

Non VOC Paints

Non VOC paint by Wellbuilt Company

So what kind of paint does your builder use? More often then not, clients are unaware of how toxic consumer level paints can be. General household paint contains up to 10,000 chemicals. Of these chemicals, 300 are known toxins, while 150 have been linked to cancer. Arguably the most potent chemicals found in these paints are volatile organic compounds also known as "VOC's". The design and build industry has made a conscious effort to shift over to using environmentally sound materials such as these non VOC paints. When selecting a paint option for our clients, Wellbuilt Company has been mindful of these effects and we have gradually shifted to using non VOC paints on all jobs. These non VOC paints are great when designing and building "green", however we believe clients deserve Wellbuilt spaces that are in fact treated with only the best materials on the market.

Energy Efficient Light Bulbs

Energy Efficient Light Bulbs for Wellbuilt Company

In 1879 Thomas Edison unveiled the first incandescent light bulb. Needless to say, Mr. Edison's efforts have changed the world and how we view it. Like many inventions in history's past, the light bulb is an evolving product in design and build. And with these new products to hit the market comes discussions on energy efficiency and electricity bills. Household energy consumption is often a topic of conversation that most of us discuss, but when we look at the bigger picture we see high rise buildings in cities like New York, Buenos Aires, London, Paris, and especially Tokyo. These buildings take large sums of money to literally keep the lights on for businesses. As the cost on energy has risen, the last two decades has seen an influx of energy efficient products. In 2007 an energy law was passed to lead manufacturers to start phasing out incandescent bulbs in favor of more energy efficient lighting. Some consumers look at this change as an attempt to "go green" but we view it as doing the right logical thing and a sound investment for our clients. With that, here we are with a few energy efficient style light bulbs that we will be using in our upcoming Wellbuilt projects.
