I have not been paid for this review. I wish I was! It would have helped!
I never thought we would be the people that did improvements to the exterior of the house before the interior. I usually just don’t care enough about curb appeal – especially when compared to how I care about the interior design of my space! The thing (or thousands of things) that pushed us to do the exterior first were the ants…and bugs…there is nothing I hate more than bugs. We knew the house was in need of a better barrier between outdoors and in!
We met with a few contractors who specialized in siding & decided that Built Right Renovations were the ones who gave us the best impression, had the most knowledge & were reasonably priced. They were not the cheapest, but when we thought about all that was needed for maximum protection, we thought they gave us the best bang for our buck!
First…let me show you what we were working with!
not too bad right?!
check out what was under all that vintage (read: old as Moses) cedar shake…
There was a LOT of rot. The sill plate around most of the house was rotten, the plywood was non-existent…and we discovered a small roofing problem too! I can’t imagine where all the bugs were coming from!!!
Built Right came to us with the damage, and obviously the price went up, but the work had to be redone and I do believe they did great work. I suppose more time will tell since they have just finished about 2 days ago, but I was watching pretty closely & they were very pleasant, clean, & quick.
Here’s what we look like today!
For anyone who is interested, here’s the company’s info!
