New Paint Outside

New Paint Outside

Benefits

Painting the house is certainly a regular (once in a while) maintenance task, and if you just need it redone in the same color, we can do it no problem.  But we invite you to think of this as an opportunity... to present a new face to the world, to give you something to talk to your friends and neighbors about, to make a fun family activity and select a color... something more than just a maintenance task.  But if you prefer to keep it the same that's ok too.  There's something to be said for consistency.  Either way we support you, and we're here if you need us.

New Garage

New Garage

Benefits

A new workshop?  A new art space?  A new all-weather idea hatching lab?  The empty place under a mother in law suite?  A place to store treasures or launch an online antiques business?  Whatever you would call it, a new garage might be just the thing.  Even if you don't have room for an addition we can help to re-work your current space and make it happen.  Thinking outside the box is what got Apple started, and great design is what made them famous.  You have the inspiration, we have the design and execution.  We could do great things together...

New Sunroom

New Sunroom

Benefits

The extra light you get with a properly designed sunroom is awesome.  But we want to focus in quick on the health benefits.  Especially in the winter, a little bit of extra sun from a warm spot can do wonders for mood and motivation.  Vitamin D doesn't come from food, it comes from the sun, right?  Oxygen is also an amazing boost for general health and feeling good.  Plants thriving in a new sunroom give that boost to otherwise HVAC conditioned air.  It's subtle but it makes a difference.  Of course you have to be careful about over-heating, and you're house or your lot might not be right for a sunroom.  But we can help figure those things out, and bring a bit more light into your daily life.

New Porch

New Porch

Late spring and early summer is the classic time of year for sitting on the porch, saying hi to neighbors, and enjoying the day.  How easy is your porch to spend time on, and how do you want it to look?

New Deck

New Deck

Benefits

Entertaining, playing, chatting, chilling, maybe even some gourmet grilling.  Enclosed with a screen, open to the sky, with stairs to the green, or flying high.  However you imagine this outdoor room, you know it's a place you'll want to spend some quality time.   Watching kids play perhaps, or soaking in a hot tub?  We look forward to hearing what you have in mind.

New Landscaping

New Landscaping

Benefits

Tired of dealing with grass?  Weeds?  Bugs?  New landscaping can help.  Trouble with puddles in the yard, invasive plants, or underground animals?  New landscaping can help.  Tired of looking at the cheap boxwoods installed by the builder or previous owner?  You guessed it.  

When it comes to new plants, we like to focus on finding the magic meeting place of your individual sense of beauty, proper placement, ease of maintenance, and the use of local plants when possible.  The last thing you want right next to your house is a tree with strong roots, or a bush that needs a lot of water.  If you're considering adding hard-scape elements like walls, steps, or grading, we focus on the long term - to avoid issues like buckling patio floors or leaning retaining walls.  Whether you want a special set of plants, a bird watching paradise, or a new veggie garden with bee hives, we'll make sure it fits your house, your needs, and your overall landscape.

New Windows

New Windows

Benefits

New windows can provide several benefits.  The first one most people think of is energy savings. It's true that if you have old windows, single paned windows, or poorly sealed windows, they could be contributing to heat loss in the winter, and heat gain in the summer.  Energy savings alone is not usually enough to offset the cost of new windows, but when you take into account some of the many other benefits of new windows, the scales tip quickly to "yes":

  • New windows are easier to keep clean
  • New windows have easy to manage bug screens
  • New windows are aesier to open and close
  • New windows are often more secure
  • New windows can provide cleaner views
  • New windows can add to the design sense of a room
  • New windows can have integrated light screens or blinds

If you've been thinking that new windows might be right for you and your home, please contact us to set up a consultation or to get an estimate.

Unbiased Consultation

If you're not sure if you really need new windows, then scheduling an unbiased consultation is the right option.  By paying a small fee for our time and expertise, you get the peace of mind that we're going to help you identify what's best, not try to sell you something.  We'll ask questions, listen, and help you figure out the details.  Then after that if you decide new windows are right for you, we can still give an estimate to match your needs and priorities. 

New Siding

New Siding

Benefits

Siding is many things to your home...raincoat, windbreaker, insulator, pest deterrent, and individual expression of style and color.  When it breaks down or gets damaged, the elements come in and have their way.  Water rots and molds, wind steals heat and cool, pests make nests, and visitors may get the wrong impression.  If siding is in good condition overall, then repairing siding is our recommended short term solution.  If it is close to or beyond it's useful life, or if you're unhappy with it's looks or it's performance, then it may be time for new siding.

(When we talk about siding, it's not just vinyl siding, it's any material used on outer walls to keep the elements out.  Brick, stone, cedar, pine, cement board, and vinyl are common materials.  We work with all these materials and more.)

New Roofing

New Roofing

Benefits

A new roof keeps the rain out, right?  Yes, but now think about what your roof does when it's not raining.  When it's sunny, it takes the brunt of the sun's powerful nuclear energy.  What does your current roof do with all that heat?  If you have a normal roof then it reflects some if it, and radiates the rest of it into your attic, heating the air inside.  Vents let some of that heat out, but most of it sits right above your ceiling and effects room temperature.   Any new roof can just keep the rain out for another 10 years, but with our help, a new roof can also reflect summer heat, improve indoor comfort, decrease energy usage, and pave the way for a finished attic.
