What’s a common mistake homeowners should avoid when planning their purchase/project?
Poor design and planning up front lead to all sorts of problems. Good quality architecture and detailing improves the return on investment and adds more enjoyment with the enhanced lifestyle that comes with new home space and features. Good planning leads to less problems and delays during construction, avoiding cost overruns.

Experience and professionalism. Comprehensive knowledge of the newest materials, combined with a very thorough and professional design and construction process, leads to a consistently outstanding experience.
What extra steps do you take to ensure your customers’ satisfaction?

How can I update my house and “go green?”
ENERGY STAR-compliant/green products are at the top of every homeowner’s list. Window and other exterior-product manufacturers have responded with design changes and upgrades that exceed this standard while maintaining features that blend with a particular homeowner’s style and taste.
How do I decide what kind of siding I should get?
Fiber-cement siding like James Hardie is an excellent siding choice. It’s non-combustible and rot-resistant, and it holds paint three to four times longer than wood. It’s a minimum of five times thicker than vinyl. It’s the preferred replacement material for historical buildings. Good Guys Contracting is the number one Preferred Remodeler in the area for quality of service and quantity of homes remodeled. Many colors from which to choose.
Vinyl siding is the most popular siding material because it’s more cost-conscious and virtually maintenance-free. It comes in a huge variety of appealing colors and textures to add to your home’s curb appeal while increasing your home’s energy efficiency.
