The siding and roofing contractor industry can be a large, scary place. Contractors can be a dime a dozen, with many of them creating their own business out of a van or a pickup truck. Trust us, you don’t want these small pop-up contractors, or large contractors that contract everything out to others!
Dirt, debris, mold, and grime can build up on your siding. This results in your home looking a bit weathered from the weather. Cleaning your siding every spring will keep your home looking fresh.
Wanting to sell your home or just increase its value? Curb appeal is fantastic way to increase your home’s value. It will attract buyers if you are wanting to sell. If you aren’t planning to sell your home anytime soon, it is still a wise investment that will turn some heads on your block.

This past month has been a busy one for Highmark Exteriors as we spent some time volunteering in the community. We volunteered at Feed My Starving Children, where the group packed 113 boxes which translated to 24,408 meals. That is enough meals to feed 67 children for a year. We also had a ton of fun participating in the Prior Lake Chamber Ice Golf Event on January 31st.
New siding is exciting! It is a way to completely change the look of your home and amp up your curb appeal. We want to help you make the best choice for your home.
So far, we’ve had a pretty tame winter this year in Minnesota. Typical Minnesota winters can harm your home’s roof, siding, and gutters. The freezing temperatures can also take a toll on your heating bills. We want you to get through this winter with the least possible damage to your home and wallet.
Siding does more for your house than curb appeal, it protects your home from the elements. Vinyl siding has had a bad reputation in the past, but its quality has improved throughout the years. Today’s vinyl siding is fade resistant, insect proof, and extremely durable.
Fall is here and the leaves are starting to fall. Many people love fall’s beautiful landscape. What people don’t usually like about fall is cleaning up the leaves! While you may be focused on raking up the leaves on your lawn, your gutters have collected some leaves too.
Fall is here and you know what that means - winter is coming. Colder temperatures usually lead to higher energy bills. Your windows are a part of your home’s insulation. Old, warped, and drafty windows let your home’s heat escape. You wouldn’t keep an old, broken furnace would you? Replacing your windows can save you a lot of money in the long run. Take a minute or two to see if your windows show any of these warning signs.
