Novel Remodeling Memorial Day Sale!

Novel Remodeling is having a massive sale this Memorial Day Weekend that goes up to 50% and there are so many projects to take advantage of this deal for.

Above Ground Pools

From a bird’s eye view Los Angeles is a city of palm trees, patios, and pools. Let’s just blame the weather, beautiful 24/7, sometimes too hot - but that’s why you dip into the pool. Above ground pools fit all lifestyles, all families. Always a great addition.

Patio Covers

A little shade from the sun is a common theme here. Patio covers transform a deck into an extension of the house, a second living room - no walls, no fuss, just a roof overhead that covers it all. A deck addition is a nice treat for any yard, but a patio cover completes it.

Exterior Painting

The sun picks up during the summer which means exterior paint loses its luster quicker. Many homeowners choose to repaint their homes during the summer to bring back that clean shine they love - all season long.

Artificial Turf

Green lawns brown too easily in Los Angeles, which has left many homeowners tearing it all down to replace it with a more reliable alternative - artificial. The look of artificial turf has gotten so crisp over the years that it’s hard to tell the difference unless you’re face down in it.


Unsightly cracks in a driveway can ruin a good first impression. They’re even worse when the reason for said damage was caused by a not-so-good contractor. Repairing that work can be a huge burden lifted, especially if what you put in its place is even better.

Outdoor Kitchens

If it’s a summer of barbecues, go all out. Outdoor kitchens are a growing trend in Los Angeles where it’s just too nice to stay inside. Install a stove in the outdoors where it won’t ever get too hot in the kitchen.

Drought Resistant Landscaping

There’s just no time for a fussy yard. Drought landscaping uses the earthy, brilliant tones of cacti, succulents, and hardy vegetation to design a yard that doesn’t need to be babysat. When the world around your home feels truly like California, it’s a new level of curb appeal.

What is Pervious Concrete?

Why Pervious Concrete?

Pervious concrete is a combination of aggregate material and paving that is made to mimic the natural filtration of the earth. It helps mitigate -

Erosion 60% of river water pollution Seepage after intense rainfall The costly weight that dirty water puts on a city’s filtration system

On top of all these benefits, pervious concrete costs around the same as any asphalt installation.

For those who haven’t seen it before, pervious concrete seems like smoke and mirrors in the way it takes water, makes it disappear.

It’s an old trick through, an invention that has been around since the 1800s - comprised of simple, but ingenious parts.

What is Pervious Concrete?

Pervious concrete is built on five layers.

Pavers - All a variety of colors, looks, and all engineered to allow for swift passage of water in between each one.

⅜” Aggregate - In between the pavers and comprising a complete layer below ⅜” aggregate creates a 40% permeable layer that filters water into lower levels. Fine c…
