Depending on your personality, exterior home remodeling can be exciting or nerve-wracking.

Most of our customers are eager to see their newly remodeled homes but leery about the process involved to get there. To help ease those concerns and make the exterior home remodeling process as stress-free and transparent as possible, we’ve created this page which will outline our process and what you can expect with Erdmann Exteriors as your home remodeling contractor.

Design Consultation

  • The Initial Meeting.
    Once you’ve contacted Erdmann Exteriors we’ll set up a time to meet. This informational first appointment takes place at your home and typically lasts 45-60 minutes. During the meeting we will:
  • Conduct a needs assessment and discuss your exterior home remodeling project in detail. We’ll go over what you want done and your design style so we can recommend a solution that meets your exact needs and fits your personality.
  • In order to provide the most accurate cost estimate possible, we will also use this time to take field measurements and photos of the home.
  • Proposal Creation.
    After our first meeting, your Erdmann Exteriors representative will go back to the office and configure the project at a base price. From there, we will develop options in Good, Better, and Best scenarios, giving you plenty of choices for upgrades and specific services to fit your needs and your budget.
  • second  Meeting.
    Our second meeting with you will again take place at your home and lasts between 1 and 1.5 hours. During this meeting we will review the proposal, the scope of work, discuss our best practices, and provide you with product samples. This no-pressure meeting gives you the chance to learn more about our capabilities and get answers to all of your questions.
  • Client Review.
    We always end the second meeting with an opportunity for client review. We encourage clients to take their time to review the proposal on their own time and even make revisions to the proposal to better reflect their wants and needs. During this time, we encourage clients to visit our home remodeling company showroom to view larger product samples.


After you’ve signed on with us, we get into the pre-construction phase of the project.

  • Project Consultant Meeting.
    During this meeting you will meet with one of our home remodeling company Project Consultants to discuss, review, and finalize the complete scope of work and develop a project timeline.
  • determine official start date.
    Determine Official Start Date. Once the details have been finalized, the project consultant and the client will set an official start date. We will continue to follow up as the date draws closer.
  • pre-construction Meeting.
    Pre-Construction Meeting. Two weeks prior to the start of the job start, a pre-construction meeting will take place. At this meeting the Project Consultant and client will go over material placement, dumpster placement and what to expect during construction.
