  • 5 star review  We had a great experience with Xpand! They took the time to come and sit down to help us design our deck and went thru all our options for decking materials. It was built in a timely manner and the end product was just what we wanted!

  • 5 star review  We bought a model home of Jess’ in Jordan last April and are just thrilled with it. We were so impressed with the craftsmanship and quality of the model home that we contracted with Xpand to finish the basement, add a patio and a deck with gazebo that is the envy of the street!!!

  • 5 star review  It was such a pleasure to use Xpand Inc on our recent kitchen remodel. The workers involved showed commitment, craftsmanship, passion and courtesy. Xpand Inc personnel kept us informed each step of the way and were always readily available for questions and advice. We now have our dream kitchen that is so inviting and we are proud to use as a gathering space for friends and family. We highly recommend Xpand Inc company to work with.

  • 5 star review  They did an addition above my garage. Jesus had a better layout than we did. They were done on a timely manner. They did an amazing job on the work. When it was done it looked better than we thought it would. The only issue was an uneven floor in the extended entry way. They were back out in a couple days to fix the problem. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Very incredible company all around.

  • 5 star review  Xpand Inc did a wonderful job on both the design, and building of, the deck on my house. They were professional, courteous, and very friendly. The project was scheduled and completed on time, and the craftsmanship was top notch! I would definitely recommend, and use, Xpand Inc for any construction needs again, without hesitation! Thanks for the great addition to my home!

  • 5 star review  We had Xpand build our home in 2013-2014. Jess was very easy to work with, listened to our wants and offered ideas, responded promptly when we had concerns and provides quality workmanship! His crews were always respectful, and worked hard to get things done without cutting corners, which was very important to us. He was also willing to allow us to do some of the work ourselves! Thank you for our beautiful home Xpand!

Dreaming of the sun and shine

Being cooped up all day because of dreary weather is no fun. Sadly, we have a little bit of time left before the weather will allow us to enjoy natures bounty again. The cold and chilly weather cannot, however, take away from us our imagination and day dreaming abilities of our home and the luxuries we will be able to enjoy when the sun once again dominates the sky!

While we are barricaded indoors, why don’t we plan out some ideas to implement during the spring and summer? Preparation probably never hurt anyone!

Decks, porches, patios and the like! Outdoor renovations that will make the winter seem like a bad nightmare are just around the corner! Here we will provide some easy and quick tips on some new deck designs and things of the sort!

Let’s start with the patio!

The backyard is often thought of as this wide open space that may or may not include some form of a garden. I think we should expand on this open space! If you don’t already have one incorporated, then we highly recommend adding a location for a patio!

A patio can come in all kinds of formats! The design is only limited by your imagination! If you want a patio that is focused on the “sunshine fun time” feel, then we need to incorporate large amounts of plant life and furniture that can work in sync with those plants! A nice white wood table, maybe with  some form of quartz or granite surface, along with some nicely formed wicker chairs would be a great start! To get the greenery in there, consider having a garden surround the patio area. The garden could line the perimeter of the patio area while staying out from underneath the location. There is also the option of having some form of flat ceiling incorporated in the patio’s structure and you could hang the plants from the ceiling to create an always lovable floating garden!

Want more of a rough patio design? Try the rugged rock pathway leading to a table that has a giant circular rock slab as the surface! Combine the table and pathway with some minimal wooden chairs that have some metal bars and you will be golden…or in this case stone-den!

Moving onto Porches!

Porches are a strong factor in the first visual understanding of a home! They can really add a unique flavor to the homes character, while providing a great location to relax in the breeze of the day.

Porches, just like patios, have a wide array of options to make it unique for every home! Porches and traditional styled elements go together hand in hand. Consider a porch design that struts a large space with multiple seating options, from couches to cushioned chairs. Make sure however, that the furniture featured in your porch is weather-resistant! Wicker chairs here are a great option for the resistance alone, but also because of that traditional feeling and the variety of colors they can be found in or painted to!

When seating in the porch you can add a table to enjoy a nice meal, be it breakfast or dinner. To compliment your meal, a nice citronella candle or two in the form of a torch or the like, will help keep those pesky insects off your menu! Adding some fans for those warmer days will also incorporate another layer of functionality and style!

Last but not the least impressive, decks!

We aren’t talking about the part of a ship, we are talking about that risen section that is outdoor of your home! Decks give great value to a homes landscape appreciation. Decks allow the backyard to be appreciated in a new manner!

whether during a sunset, sunrise or zenith, decks offer some great extra space for social activities to take place in the wide open world!

So how can we break away from the generic wooden deck and have a design that stands out? Well, as for the wood aspect, try a different kind of wood! No one has to have the same type of wood for decks, try asking about different wood variations that will match your home and it’s surroundings! Decks generally have some form of railing for safety, but this is where you can get creative as well! Instead of some wooden poles, consider some glass panes as a fall barrier, this will allow for a stronger appreciation of the scenery while still providing a safety mechanism! If your not too worried about the view, and you don’t care for the glass, maybe try some stone! Ask around for some custom stone railing options!

No matter the location, a deck, patio, or porch can be an immensely great addition to your home and add some great charm and functionality! If you caught this outdoor renovation bug, we conveniently have the skill and knowledge on all things home and renovation, including the outdoor kind!

Give us a call at Xpand today and let’s start mapping out your plans for those home renovations and remodels! When the tame weather approaches you will be ready!
