“When you talk about boosting the curb appeal on an older home, the first advice is to paint the front door,” Ryan said. “I get it: changing the color of the door can create visual interest and is a relatively affordable way to spruce things up. But I don’t want just a little pop. I want the entrance way to our Framingham home to really set the entire tone of our residence. When you see our entrance way, you should know that we’re a family that cares about details. We’re a family that cares about design.”
As custom deck builders in Framingham, there’s nothing we enjoy more than working with homeowners who have a vision for their home. Transforming dreams into reality is what we do best. Entrance way design is so much more than front door selection: constructing a front deck and stairs that grant graceful, inviting access to the home is job number one. The tone of home can be formal, quirky, or casual: deck designs range from classic traditional lines that evoke New England grandeur to family friendly spaces that invite visitors to relax and spend time chatting.
Stone veneers for the home’s exterior is an increasingly popular trend in the Framingham MA area, and we’ve found that this natural look pairs incredibly well with composite decking for the entrance way. There’s a few reasons for this, but the one we’d like to focus on first is how composite decking resists wear and damage caused by moisture. Stone veneers tend to chill and warm at a different rate than the rest of the home’s structure; this can result in dripping and pooling water that forms subsequent to changes in the weather. If that water accumulates on traditional wooden decking, problems with rot, mold and mildew can result. Composite decking resists all water damage, which makes it the best choice for your exciting entrance way in Framingham, MA.
