Maybe you’ve just gotten a home and it’s in a bit of a rough shape, or you’ve been living in your home for a while now and something about its look just doesn’t feel right. Remodeling our homes is something many of us are going to have to do at some point, either because our tastes in aesthetic changes, or because our homes will just naturally begin to wear out until we’re given no choice but to tear it away and put up something brand new. However, with so many choices out there, and with the fact that everyone you seem to talk to has their own ideas about what a house should look like, what are some actual, solid, and most importantly, cheap solutions to your problem?

One beautiful and cheap option available to many people is Veneer Stone. If this is your style, it typically won’t cost you too much, but you should always get quotes for your home from different contractors, as they may give you different prices. It’s simple, yet gorgeous, and gives your home a stately, classical look. Many people choose to have Veneer stone put on the lower part of their home, while the upper part is something like stucco, vinyl, or panel sidings. This creates an amazing look, and if stone appeals to you, you simply can’t go wrong with this.

Another option, already mentioned above, is stucco. Stucco, for those who don’t know, is what contractors use to create an exterior that looks smooth, flat from afar, but when you get closer, you realize that it’s actually quite bumpy, as if it had little stones all throughout. It retains its color very well, and is incredibly resistant to weather. This option is simple, plain, but will also last you for a long while!

These are just two good options for you to consider when you go to remodel your home, and I encourage you to do your own searching as well to find the perfect material for your tastes! Remember, when you make your choice, consult with a few different contractors and get quotes from them, and you might find that you end up paying far less than you would for some more expensive options! But most importantly, always make sure that whatever you choose is at least something you can live with.  After all, you’ll be living with it for a while!
