Before our team provides you with creative solutions and options, we’ll first listen to your thoughts and concerns, analyze your home’s details and potential, and take a look at styles of other homes in your neighborhood. Communication is key during this development phase of your project. We’ll discuss the color and design of the front door, lighting, windows, trim, garage doors, siding and accents, and well as their placement in regard to both design and functionality.
Once you’ve made a few swatch choices, and we’ve narrowed the scope of possibilities, our team will use Renoworks and/or Photoshop to create a computer rendering of some design options. You’ll be able to view a realistic depiction of your selected James Hardie Siding products, stone and colors of Sherwin Williams paint, and get an idea of how they would actually look on your home exterior. To make the bidding and execution process easier, I’ll identify the selections and note any special project details in an organized manner. If you like, I’ll even accompany you to the store to make your final selections.
Watching your project move seamlessly from an idea — to a few color swatches — to a computer rendering — and finally to a beautiful finished home exterior, is nearly as exciting and rewarding for me as it is for you! I truly look forward to making sure that the first impression of your home is as inviting, unique and special as the people who live there.
Home Exterior Design Services
When working with a professional exterior designer at Barrier Construction, you’ll have the opportunity to view design options for your home before any work is contracted. Our designer works with the latest software to produce visual representations of how your home will look, based on the choices you make. Since this is your home, we respect that you take decisions very seriously and offer this service to help. Although storm damage or moisture intrusion may be the cause of your need to make a change, we would like to help turn a tragedy into a positive experience and an opportunity to be excited for how your home can be transformed.
Value of Design
Designers spend their time considering the “feel” of what you want your home to be and also take into consideration how that “feel” can help you in the future with increasing the value of your home to other home buyers. The design process gives you options to review with an understanding of what you will like, as well as what future buyers may find most appealing. The design process ensures that both your current and future needs are being met successfully.
Home Exterior Design Options
Based upon your timeline and your budget, our designer will present as many options as you would like so that you may feel confident that you have made an informed decision. If you only wish to see two options, that’s fine. Our consultants may recommend seeing a third, but any recommendations are yours to do with as you so choose.
Anticipating Your Investment
Seeing YOUR home and what it will look like, with your landscaping, your trees, your material choices and colors, makes a tremendous difference in the anticipation you will have for the investment you are about to make. We are surprised that more home exterior companies do not offer this service to their clients, as it seems only logical. Altering or updating your home exterior is a significant investment and we want you to be happy with your choices.
