Make sure the Material you Choose for the Outside Reflects what you want to Achieve on the Inside.
Building a home can be extremely stressful – choosing finishes and styles, and working with builders, contractors and trades to ensure at the end of the day you and your family are choosing the best materials representing who you are.
Often times, the choices in exterior materials and finishes are the last to be chosen, as a result of budgetary and time constraints, inevitably offsetting the final result and vision the client is aiming to achieve. Yet according to data collected by the Canadian Home Builders Association (CHBA,) approximately 15% of a custom build price will be spent on exterior materials. So starting with a vision for your exterior will not only help you to have more budgetary control, but it will also set the tone for the whole home.
