  • 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  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  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 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!

  • 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  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.

Spring sun, spring cleaning!

I know it’s a little early to be using the “spring cleaning” slogan, but on a day that is as bright as today and all the melting snow, it’s hard not to get ahead of myself!

Although there are many days left before truly reaching the first day of the spring season, it is always good to be proactive and prepare yourself for what needs to be done when it arrives! This means home maintenance for a smooth transition into the coming days. We don’t want to have some damage from the winter go unnoticed!

Let’s break down a quick list on things that should be checked out during the spring weather to ensure your homes integrity!

  • Gutters and all things downspouts- Remove any debris that has accumulated in the gutters and downspouts, while ensuring everything is connected properly. Often gutters can get moved and become unattached and pull away from the home. Use caulk or epoxy for any leaks.
  • Home siding- Pressure washers are not only fun, but useful! Go rent a pressure washer and get the mold and grime out of the nooks and crannies of your home! Check for any weathering or paint damage that may have occurred during the frigid weather.  If there is wood showing, or paint chipping, properly sand or remove at the site of damage and apply a primer and new coat of paint!
  • Exterior caulking- Go around your home and look for deteriorating caulk. Scrape away the bad caulk and reinforce the areas with a fresh caulking.
  • Windows, doors and thresholds oh my!- Check for any cracks and caulk issues and fix accordingly!
  • Screens- Window and doors screens are vulnerable little sections! Check to see if there are any holes that have occurred in the screens. If the hole is big as or bigger than a quarter, then bugs can get through, defeating the purpose of the screen. Either patch the holes or replace the screens, but don’t toss the old screens, rather save them for repairs next year! Be sure to tidy up any loose frames so there isn’t any flapping parts in the wind!
  • Drain waste and vent system- Flush out the drain waste and vent system to avoid any problems in that area!
  • Heat pump- Lubricate blower motor to ensure future efficiency
  • Foundation- The foundation is, as it sounds, important for the integrity of your home. Check your homes foundation for cracks and heaving or deterioration. Then search your walls and floors of the foundation concrete and masonry for the same problems. If you find large amounts of cracks or bricks losing their mortar, call a foundation professional. If the crack is large enough to fit a nickel, call immediately.
  • Roof- Look for fallen shingles or broken shingles, as well as surface flashing, eaves and soffits. Clean what you can and check flashings around all surface projections and sidewalls.
  • Decks and porches- Look over your decks and porches for any loose members of the structure and replace or repair as seen fit. Open decks and wood fences need to be treated every 4-6 years. If something looks off in terms of color of the stain, or some of the wood turns a dark grey, call a professional to treat the surface.

That’s all we have for your spring home maintenance tips today! I’m sure we will be in a winter warning again soon, but catching these problems when the weather allows could save you time and money in the long run!

Don’t forget to give us a call if you have any questions about your home and the possibilities of additions or some form of renovations! We are here to make your dream home after all!
