One of the most rewarding parts of building a custom home is the sense of pride that you experience each time you pull into your driveway. While most details of your custom home are planned to meet your lifestyle and needs, that very first impression that the exterior of the home radiates from the outside curb is quite important. The curb appeal of your custom built home impacts its resale value, and it gives your home personality, extends into the living space outdoors, and is the cornerstone of the homeowner’s pride in ownership. Read on for a few important considerations that have a massive impact in custom built homes!
Building Blocks – Textures and Materials
There are two different factors that come into play when you’re selecting the exterior building materials for your home: quality and your own type of personal style. Using high-quality building materials can create an elegant appearance and contributes to the value of a custom built home. Meanwhile, picking home building materials and colors that reflect your style give your home distinction and character too. At Robin Ford Builders, we know just how important these factors are to a home’s aesthetic value. We use dimensional architectural shingles that help incorporate roof overhangs and shingled returns in the roofs to create a distinctive and beautiful appearance. To meet our client’s unique requests, we have various brick options in different colors.
Windows, Doors, and More
Doors and windows are like your home’s set of jewelry. They play a big role in its curb appeal, so take careful consideration when picking them. We recommend our clients to take a peek at their future doors and windows in person before they purchase them. A lot can be decided while looking through a catalog, but you get the best sense of what your house will look like when you pick your windows and doors in person.
The Details Matter a Lot in a Custom Built Home
It’s the minor things that seal the deal when you’re designing a custom home. So, pay as much attention to the smaller details as you can. The quality of your gutters, freeze boards, downspouts, and fascia play a significant role in the overall appearance of your home. The smaller details matter the most to some custom home buyers.
