Our Current Project

Posted on:

exterior home renovations

Our current project is to perform several exterior renovations and improvements on a home in Lilburn, GA. As you can see in the photo below, we need to perform stucco removed because the original stucco is damaged. We also plan to replace the shutters, the repair the siding and perform exterior painting. Stripping and replacing the siding will take a couple of days. The first step will be to place plywood all around the house to help with strength. The next step will be to wrap the house with a moisture barrier and then place fresh new siding on top. We will then repaint the house with the customer’s color of choice and put the gutters and lights back on.

What You May Not Know About Your Home

siding replacement

According to John Temmel of Temmel Siding, many people aren’t aware that the siding on their home needs replacing. In fact, what most people attribute to paint failure is actually a result of poor siding. “When your siding begins to fail, the paint on the house will chip and crack, which is why many people think they need a new paint job rather than siding replacement,” states Temmel. So how do you know whether or not your siding needs to be replaced? John Temmel and his crew recommend looking for the following signs:
  • The inner seal is broken and the bottom lap is swollen and cracked
  • Moisture inside the house
  • The boards on the house are no longer flat
  • No overhang over the fireplace

A Buckhead Betty

exterior painting

Recently, Temmel Siding performed exterior painting on a beautiful, 3-story stucco home in the Mt. Paran area of Buckhead. The house has not been painted in over 15 years, therefore Temmel and his crew were really excited about the end result. “It’s a magnificent home and required a lot of work,” says John Temmel, owner of Temmel Siding. “We were very pleased with the end result.”

Be Proud Of The Way Your Home Looks

Home Renovations It’s important to improve the look of your home so it’s aesthetically pleasing to you and to passers-by. Here are some tips from Temmel Siding on how to revamp your home in cost-efficient ways: Do Your Own Yard Work With the economy in its current condition, many people have cut back on landscapers and are performing their yard work themselves. Think of your yard like you would your own hair: one bad style can throw everything else off! Beautify your yard by integrating a variety of plants and flowers. Having many different colors and textures can really change the whole look of the yard. Paint Your Shutters a Contrasting Color For example, if your house is yellow, blue shutters would look colorful and fun. If your home is gray, yellow shutters would look great. And of course if your home is white, think of really bright colors for your shutters like red. Use Potted Plants or Flowers Get baskets of potted plants and place one at the base of each window on the front of your home. This will add a great, 3-dimensional touch. Accessorize Buy some lanterns and install them near windows or the front door. photo credit: Elenathewise / photoxpress
