3 Exterior Home Accent Trends You Need to KnowThis summer, there are likely many projects to do around the outside of your home, but before you get started on any of them you need to know what trends will make it look the best.

Wood Shake Shingles

A beautiful, natural, accent that can be added in any color or left natural, wood shake shingles are the perfect way to add style and character to a plain home.

The best part is, they are low maintenance! Just put them in place, seal them with a weather protectant stain or leave them plain, whatever your preference your home will be picture worthy with these additions.

Copper Accents

If you want to add a little bit of timeless elegance and “flash” to your home, then copper accents are the trend you want to follow this season.  Copper along the roofline, as an awning, or even incorporated into light fixtures will add the perfect accent you need to your home. The best part is, copper looks even better with age. The more it is weathered, the more character it will add to your home.

We had some flood damage in our basement and needed baseboards replaced. We worked with Jim who was super friendly and knowledgeable. He did the repairs quickly and for a very fair price. After the repairs he walked me through what he had done and explained everything. I will definitely use them in the future. it was a great experience from start to finish.

Great company to work with. Very professional, friendly and very attentive to details. You can definitely tell that the employees took pride in their work and the owner was very good at staying on top of all of the tasks at hand. Would highly recommend this company to anyone who's looking to have some home remodeling. Their prices were competitive but the overall product was much better than what other companies have delivered.

Just had our basement finished and it looks Awesome!
