Highmark Exteriors

  • Extraordinary exteriors

    After 26 years on Lake Minnetonka’s Phelps Bay, Steve and Pam Anderson decided their home was more than ready for an exterior remodel.

    Not only was the 1980’s Tudor-style façade looking dated and worse for wear, but water damage from leaky windows was starting to threaten the underlayment.

  • Fall Maintenance: Windows

    When winter rolls around, warm and toasty beats cold and drafty. Poorly insulated windows and doors can also cause significant heat loss and higher energy bills.

    Here are a few tips for detecting and stopping drafts at their source.

  • Meet Brian Prochaska

    A pro with over 20 years of experience, Brian joined the Highmark Exteriors team this past spring. He loves the variety that comes with life in the construction trades and tells us he still gets a charge out of seeing the final result of every job.

    In his spare time Brian enjoys spending time with wife Roxie and watching their kids play hockey.

  • Roofing 101: Don’t judge a roof (just) by its shingles.

    A roof is one of the most important elements of a home, protecting it from the elements and helping to keep you and your family comfortable through extremes of heat and cold.

  • Tudor Revival

    The Tudor is a classic home style that is enjoying a renaissance, so it’s only fitting that we worked with Renaissance Builders to bring this stunning new 4,000 sf., five-bedroom Hopkins residence to life. Located on Interlachen Rd., the structure was designed by architect Ben Nelson and Renaissance Builders, who wanted the home to fit seamlessly into this older, established neighborhood.

    They chose Highmark to create the home’s richly detailed exterior, both for our expertise and the ease of using one contractor for both roofing and siding.
