The Design Team offers St. Cloud and surrounding areas stunning home plans in a variety of styles. This month we are focusing on a key feature in home design: exterior finishes. Exterior finishes make up the face your home presents to the world, as well as adding energy-efficiency and protection from the elements. Vinyl and steel siding are maintenance-free, less expensive options. They come in predetermined colors, or can be painted, as they hold paint longer than wood. They come in a variety of shapes such as shakes, board, and batten. Another popular option is Cedar Creek siding, offering a rustic specialty siding. Rich, earthy stains give a look of real wood. Redwood materials are also coming back into style. Blending designs is another option, using wider siding on the bottom, narrower on top. Stone, stucco, and brick...so many options to choose from! Call The Design Team today at (320) 252-1517 to set up your free consultation and discuss all your options. We will sit down with you and figure out the best selections for your particular home. Best of all, our unique home visualizer tool will help you get a better idea what your finished product will look like. We look forward to hearing from you!
