An effective way to add curb appeal to your home is to do an exterior renovation, most importantly to update your siding, trims, gutters, fascias and soffits. With an exterior renovation your home can go through a major transformation making it look brand new again. Another great way to enjoy the exterior of your home again is with a brand new deck, and we build all kinds of decks to meet your needs.
Today there is a large variety of exterior products available and we can help you understand each so you can make an informed decision on your remodel. Here is just a few examples of what is popular today; cement fibre lap and vertical siding, vinyl siding and shakes, cedar siding and shakes and acrylic stucco. Often an upgrade of your siding will also include installation of a new building envelope to meet today’s standards to ensure no water penetration into your home. A large part of a proper exterior installation is the flashing details, above and below windows, doors, transitions and corners. We utilize our knowledge and experience to ensure our installations are of the highest quality.
Older homes do not have an airspace behind the siding or stucco, however many new installations require this detail today. It’s a simple idea that when water penetrates the exterior façade it will have a chance to drip down and out rather than sit against the envelope and promote mold and rot. We have experience and knowledge with this important detail of installation and are happy to discuss further at your free consultation.
Fascias, Soffits and Troughing
Another way to improve your homes appearance is to upgrade the fascias, soffits and troughing to a new appealing product such as aluminum. Upgrading these products can give your home a fresh new look.
While renovating your exterior it is a good time to think about the many accent materials available today to really add character to your home. Products like cedar shakes, natural stone, solid timber or board and batten can add the touch you’re looking for. Another simple way to add character is to add trims on corners and around windows and doors, every home is unique in this manner, we are glad to hear your ideas and give you ours at your free consultation.
If your deck is looking or feeling its age then it may be time to replace or repair it, and TRED Homes has your solution. We will remove your old deck and build a brand new one if that’s what’s needed, or replace just what needs replacing. There are a variety of options today such as pressure treated, cedar, vinyl or composite. Every product has its own pros and cons, and we can help you choose the product that is right for you. You also have choices for railings such as wood, aluminum or composite. We will design and draft your deck project so you can see exactly what you’re getting.
