Planning Your Exterior Remodeling Project
While 2020 was a year of uncertainty, many experts believe that 2021 will be a year of embracing traditional comforts like family, self-care, and home improvement. If you’re thinking of giving your home a makeover in the coming year, spring is a perfect season to get started on the planning and design process.
At Budget Exteriors in Minnesota, we offer a complete range of home exterior remodeling services from replacement windows to exterior trim and siding. In this post, we’ll help you decide where to begin so you can get started planning your beautiful new home exterior. Give us a call to get started or contact us online today!
It might seem overly simple, but sometimes the best place to get started is to begin with a simple web search. If you’re looking for home exterior remodeling ideas, there are countless outstanding ideas all available on the Internet to inspire you. You can search by your home’s architectural design to check out homes with a similar style, or you can search by look if you’re envisioning something like “farmhouse” or “modern.”
Be sure to save all of your favorite ideas so you can share them with your exterior remodeling contractors. You can download the images to your computer or save them to a website like Pinterest, or go old school and print up the ideas you want to revisit.
Keep Up With the Joneses
Another great way to generate ideas is to take a drive around your neighborhood. This will give you an idea of what you love in the context of your housing style, neighborhood, and region. After all, some ideas can look amazing on Houzz or Apartment Therapy but might not be right for your area.
Be sure to take phone pics of the houses you like and save them in your idea book. It’s also a good idea to make sure your HOA doesn’t have any specific restrictions before committing to an idea.
Connect With a Contractor
Once you’ve generated plenty of ideas and you have a sense of what you like, it’s time to find out what’s available from our exterior remodeling contractor. Your contractor can fill you in on the color and design options they carry and make recommendations based on your wish list.
Ask your contractor to refer you to their manufacturer’s website. Most siding companies offer plenty of images of their products in action online. Additionally, some window and siding companies offer online tools to let you try out their products on an image of your home or a home in a similar style.
At Budget Exteriors, we’re proud to offer these products:
● Soft-Lite® windows
● ProVia doors
● Alside™ siding
● Owens Corning shingles
● And more!
