One of our biggest low maintenance features of our homes is the wood look vinyl siding exterior we include. In Pagosa Springs we have to deal with extreme U.V. light. It’s really harsh on exterior stained or painted wood surfaces. If you have a log home or cedar sided home, you have to re-stain or re-paint the exterior every few years. It’s expensive. It costs $2000-3000 every time you do it and it goes on forever. By doing the wood look vinyl siding we reduce our clients maintenance cost by over 80%. If you’re into low maintenance, you will LOVE THIS SIDING! (Many colors and styles to choose from.)
One of the unique things we do with the vinyl siding is wood trim. It’s a composite wood that is pre-primed from the factory. The wood grain surface gets painted with 2 coats of exterior trim paint. It holds up well over time. It’s the only thing on the exterior that you need to re-paint (maybe every 5-6 years). This wood trim makes the vinyl siding a lot more appealing.
Milgard Styleline or equal. Never sand, stain, spackel or paint these windows inside or out.
All of our homes have 2′ eves and are designed to shed snow away from the entry and decks. Many of our roof designs shed the snow only on the sides of the home thus making our clients lives a whole lot easier in the winter time. If you have roof valleys, electric heat mats under the valley metal are available to assist in ice melting.
We cover the side part of the roof (the fascia) with the same roof metal material. You won’t ever have to sand, stain, spackel or paint the fascia.
All of our standard homes include Trex low maintenance decks. As an added bonus some of our standard homes come with covered decks. Spend more time enjoying your deck with family and friends instead of maintaining it.
