Gather Renovation Ideas From These Shows

By January 24, 2019March 22nd, 2022Contracting Tips, Design trends

Renovation inspiration can strike at any time. But, it never seems to strike when we need it to. That’s when we outsource, to draw inspiration from experts, communities, and the digital world. Scrolling through Pinterest can be overwhelming and lack the details you need to realistically get the job done.

This is why we’re fans of good old fashioned home renovation TV shows. These TV shows will not only give you the inspiration you need to spark incredible change but will give you an insight into the steps, time, tools and budget you’ll need to get the job done. We’re sharing our favorite renovation shows that stay up-to-date on trends and give you a realistic look into the process.

We love this show (now available on Netflix) for two big reasons. Not only do they show viewers what they should be doing, but what they shouldn’t. Host Dave Depencier comes to the rescue in each episode to help renovators that are in too deep. Watch as they highlight some of the most common renovation mistakes, while showing you the best ways to fix them.

EIFS + Stucco

Commercial buildings and industrial facilities featuring exterior walls with an Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) have the attractiveness of a stucco finish but with greater insulation, toughness and longevity. In fact, unlike stucco, EIFS is actually a multi-layered system that includes insulation board, base coat and finish coat. It’s a combination that provides a classic look with modern advantages.

In addition to much-improved insulation, EIFS can improve indoor air quality and reduce the environmental impact of a structure throughout its lifetime, and it is available in a virtually unlimited range of colors and textures.

EIFS has transformed commercial buildings across all industries and our team of specialists can help you understand the benefits of this important application.
