Choosing the Right Exterior

Ohio’s weather can vary dramatically over the course of the year — and your home exterior needs to stand up to it. Whether you’re interested in brick, wood, or other siding materials, there are certain characteristics you must consider when making exterior selections so you can choose the best option for your home.

Your Immediate Surroundings

Weather patterns can vary significantly from place to place, in part based on your local surroundings. If you live in a high moisture area (such as near a lake or river), you should strongly consider mold-resistant products. Windier areas with moderate airflow will need wind-resistant materials. Considering the elements your property will deal with on a regular basis allows our team to make recommendations that keep your home looking great for years to come. 


Regardless of the type of materials you choose, quality matters. We use durable exterior products that withstand fading from sun exposure, while also holding up well to other environmental hazards. As part of this, we also offer metal roofs as an upgradable, lifetime roofing solution. Metal roofs are highly resistant to wind, fire, pests, and water damage, lasting for many decades beyond standard asphalt shingles.


Being constantly exposed to the elements, having a warranty to back your home exterior features can provide great peace of mind. The products offered in our design center come with generous manufacturer warranties when installed by a professional contractor. In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, you won’t have to worry about paying out of pocket to fix it.
