Home & Garden Resource Guide: Create Your Dream Home!

These local experts have what it takes to turn your house into a dream home. Whether looking to upgrade appliances, remodel a room, transform your backyard or buy and sell property—you’re in good hands with these industry pros.

Aldik Home

If you’re ready to re-imagine your outdoor space with a gorgeous new patio furniture set, make sure you check out Aldik Home’s stunning selection of Summer Classics outdoor furniture. The line is meticulously crafted from premium materials using both age-old building methods and state-of-the-art finishing processes to ensure the furniture will last for years to come.

While other manufacturers, such as Brown Jordan or Restoration Hardware, may be more well-known, they do not come close to the craftsmanship and durability of Summer Classics. Not only is this furniture stylish and sophisticated, but you simply will not find more comfortable outdoor furniture (the Majorca Collection is our favorite!). Lucky for you, the best selection of Summer Classics in the country is nearby at Aldik Home in Van Nuys. Experience the Summer Classics difference in person while you wander through one of LA’s most beautiful stores. There’s no place like Aldik Home.

Angelus Paving Stones

Beautify any outdoor area with Angelus Paving Stones, an industry favorite since 1946 for concrete paving stones and decorative retaining wall blocks for municipal, commercial and residential projects. The family owned business’ dedication to quality and service has fueled the company’s growth for the past 70+ years, catapulting it to become the largest dry cast concrete manufacturing capacity facility in California. Servicing, selling and distributing to contractors and dealer networks throughout Southern California, Angelus stocks a wide range of products, including the popular Paseo and Pavilion large format pavers for patio and pool decks, as well as plank-style Aqualina and Timberline pavers. 

Many customers find the wood plank look and the low maintenance and longevity of concrete pavers to be a winning combination. The low-maintenance, long-lasting high quality of concrete pavers make them an even more attractive hardscape enhancement. Homeowners are often surprised to learn that a properly installed concrete paver driveway can last 30 years or more and offers an additional advantage of seamless repair in case underground utilities need to be accessed. Repairing or replacing an underground sewer line or water main in many cases involves simply removing and resetting the pavers over newly compacted base and bedding sand, saving homeowners considerable time and money.

The Folding Door Store

From your imagination to installation, The Folding Door Store can make your dream home a reality. With over 30 years of construction experience, Owner Brad Kinder and his team of design consultants believe quality is paramount. Door selection may seem relatively straightforward, but the details of construction and function can be the difference between a subpar and stellar user experience. This insight inspired Kinder, a builder and general contractor, to start a company and set to work. “I travelled all over the country, met with owners, toured manufacturing facilities and brought only the best folding and sliding doors back to the showroom.” The result was more than eight brands offering a range of prices and styles from which to choose. The Folding Door Store is the best choice to help you seamlessly bring the beauty of the outdoors into your home.
