Window Renovations:

Door Renovations:

Your entry doors are one of the first impressions given of your home.  A beautiful new entrance will not only make a good first impression, but provide other great benefits as well.  Chances are your current door is not as energy efficient or secure as it could be, and changing your door can not only improve your energy costs, but make you feel more secure and safe in your home.  When it comes to the options for entry doors; the colours and designs are almost limitless.  If you need some inspiration, click here to view our door gallery to see some of the possibilities.

Soffits, Fascia and Eavestrough:

Soffits, fascia and eavestrough will give the perfect touch of refinement while protecting roof lines, gables and other hard-to-reach areas with a durable finish that’s easy to maintain.  Complement or match your soffits, fascia and trough to your new or old siding.

Finishing Touches:

Exterior shutters, railings, columns, light fixtures, door hardware, mailboxes and landscaping are some of the finishing details to think about when renovating or upgrading your home’s exterior.  Upgrading some of these elements can go a long way in improving the look of your home.
