Exterior Treatments For Orlando Home Building
In many ways, the exterior of your home is the star of the show sharing the stage with other cast members like stucco, stone, brick or wood presenting your desired custom appearance to audiences that pass by your custom home.
Choosing Custom Materials and Colors
With so many exterior materials and colors to choose from, this is the perfect opportunity to build the custom home of your dreams. When considering exterior materials, it’s important to be aware that some materials perform better than others in our sub-tropical climate. For example, while wood is a handsome choice, it attracts termites and periods of heavy rain can cause rotting. Brick has similar issues in Florida. However, Hardie Board siding offers an authentic appearance while helping to protect against moisture and pest.This option can be further customized in your choice of colors and designs.
Stucco and Stone For Home Exterior
Stucco and Cultured Stone® are two great exterior choices for custom homes in the Orlando area. Not only are these resilient materials fire and wind-resistant, they are more energy efficient than many other exterior choices. Stone exteriors have become increasingly popular in recent years. Its unique characteristics with stones in varying sizes, shapes and colors offer an aesthetically pleasing craftsmen appearance. But stucco is still a popular choice. Its available in a variety of patterns and colors making it an attractive and affordable choice for homeowners.
