I am planning a kitchen remodel within the next year. What features should I look for in cabinets to ensure that they survive the abuse of a 6 year old and look great for many years? I know you usually don't endorse specific manufacturers, but are there any that you can recommend I consider.

I am also torn whether to have the remodeled kitchen have a hardwood floor to match the rest of the house or to go with ceramic tile. Both are better than what is there now, but I cannot decide which way to go.

I guess an additional question is what should I be asking roofers? Building is around 100 yrs, parapet is deteriorating. - Thanks, R.

I live in a typical Chicago six flat. Our roof is about 20 years old and has a few problems. We have done a test cut to learn a little bit about the roof’s history and discovered that the original roof is there under at least four or five more layers. Consequently there is no insulation under on the roof membrane. I’ve been above the ceiling on the top floor and there is a thick layer of rockwool but only in the areas where the ceilings were lowered and the original plaster lath is still intact. This leaves several rooms with no insulation in the ceiling. The interstitial space is also vented to the exterior with two very small vents built into the brick coursing. Is it better to remove all the rockwool and insulate the entire ceiling, place insulation under the new roof which is imminent in our future, or both?
