Envision®: Digital Marketing and Website Advice for Contractors

Digital Marketing and Website Advice for Contractors from Envision®

In today’s modern world, if you want to operate a successful business, you are going to need to utilize the internet as a resource for marketing and brand building. Successful contractors make use of websites and digital marketing to demonstrate their know-how and draw in potential clients. In today’s blog, Envision® is here with helpful advice about building a professional presence online with digital marketing and website design.

Build a Beautiful Professional Portfolio

Prospective clients are looking for trusted and experienced contractors because they want to feel confident about the style and quality of the finished product. Help clients find confidence in your brand by including a professional portfolio of your work on your website.

It is difficult for clients to be absolutely sure that they will get the quality they are looking for, but a portfolio of beautiful completed work is the best way to inspire confidence in your company. Successful contractors know that inspired design options, experienced workmanship, and top-of-the-line building materials make the difference when building a professional portfolio.

Help Clients Feel Like Experts with Informative Resources

Clients will feel more confident in their own design decision as well as your professional expertise when you give them all the facts they need to make a wise investment in their home. When creating a website, consider including an information resource section where you answer common client questions and provide helpful advice. This will show that you have the know-how to get the job done right for clients, and that you want clients to be well informed so they can make good decisions for their home.

An informative blog with helpful resources is also a great way to push your business to the top of your local competition online. If you want your website to top the list when clients use internet search engines to find local contractors, producing informative content for your website is the way to go.

Utilize Social Media

Social media is a very important part of successful online marketing for any business. It is very easy to create a helpful Facebook page for customers. Instagram is a great medium for displaying your beautiful portfolio of work and inspiring potential clients. Utilize Google Business tools to “claim” your company’s Google Profile, and ensure that all the information that Google displays for your business is accurate, including phone number, address, hours of operation, and the location of your business on Google Maps.

Envision® Quick Tip: No matter what social media platform you use, fast response times are key. Think of messages from customers on social media as though they just walked in the front door of your business. Strike while the iron is hot, and you are much more likely to close the deal.

Keep it Local

Whether you are developing your social media profile or you are are building a blog with helpful professional advice, make it clear that you are a local company and that you understand and value your community. Target your local market with thoughtful information about unique challenges or opportunities that the area offers. Perhaps mild winters in your area make year-round deck design an excellent option: write an informative blog for prospective clients! Perhaps your local basketball team is going to the championship: make an engaging social media post to support your hometeam! Keep it fun, keep it personal, and keep prospective clients engaged with your brand.

Build Your Brand with Envision®

It may not be easy to develop a website and digital marketing campaign, but the resulting professional success of your business is worth the effort. Envision® is here to help, with detailed advice, professional resources, and excellent composite decking products.

Hosting an Outdoor BBQ on Your Envision® Deck (part 1)

Host an Amazing Outdoor BBQ on your Envision® Deck

There are lots of things that homeowners can do to prepare their outdoor living space for a great BBQ with family and friends. Today, Envision® offers advice for beating the summer heat when you are entertaining, as well as providing comfortable and stylish furniture for BBQ events large and small. Forthcoming blogs will continue to provide helpful advice for a perfect BBQ, including advice for outdoor kitchens, poolside BBQs, and design elements for great BBQ events. To discover top-notch tips and tricks for hosting the perfect BBQ, read on.

Furniture for Style and Comfort

Comfortable outdoor seating is a perfect complement to a beautiful outdoor living space from Envision®. Most homeowners will have enough outdoor seating for their family and a few friends, but what options are available when you are having a big group over for a BBQ and you don’t have enough seating?

Short-term furniture rental is an option for homeowners hosting large groups. There are many companies that provide outdoor furniture for large events such as weddings or family reunions. These companies will be happy to provide plenty of chairs and tables for your event, so every guest at your BBQ will be seated comfortably. Prices for a one-day rental are reasonable, and the furniture is delivered to your home, so set-up will be a breeze.

If your BBQ group will be too large for your current outdoor seating arrangement, but too small to necessitate a furniture rental, consider simply moving indoor dining tables and chairs into your outdoor entertaining space. In previous blogs, we have discussed the aesthetic and functional benefits of unifying the design style of indoor and outdoor spaces, and this is a perfect opportunity to make the most of this unified design approach. Bringing indoor furnishings outside for your BBQ event will double your outdoor seating options, and the unified design will ensure your overall aesthetic is cohesive and stylish.

For outdoor furniture style ideas that complement your outdoor living design, check out the Envision® Idea Gallery.

Cool Features for Warm Weather

Warm weather is perfect for a summer BBQ with friends, but what if the weather is heating up and it starts to get a little too warm? There are great design ideas that can help solve this problem. With a little preparation, you can help your guests stay cool at your BBQ, even when temperatures are climbing.

Shade sails and awnings are an excellent way to mitigate warm temperatures on hot sunny days. Shade sails and awnings come in a variety of colors and styles, so think about your overall outdoor design aesthetic when you make your choice. Consider a vibrant color that complements the existing color palette of your design. For example, perhaps there are sky-blue throw pillows for your outdoor seating that already coordinate with the beautiful Barnwood Plank decking from the Envision Inspiration® Collection. Choose a navy blue shade sail that will contribute to the variety of blue tones in your design, and, of course, it will coordinate nicely with the beautiful blue sky during your BBQ.

Consider this hot new trend in cool outdoor living that is sure to please your BBQ guests when temperatures are climbing: a screened-in outdoor living space with indoor air-conditioning ventilation. Screened-in living space retains air temperature surprisingly well, so if your screened-in area shares a wall with your home, or is close-by, it will be quick work for a contractor to add an air vent so you can keep cool all summer long.

Enjoy Summer in Style with Envision®

Entertain friends and family in style this summer with beautiful outdoor spaces designed with the suite of decking products from Envision®. Whether you are having a small gathering of friends or a family reunion with dozens of guests, a fun summer BBQ is a great way to get together and enjoy the warm months of summer. With helpful advice, professional resources, and excellent Envision® products, your summer BBQ party is sure to be a hit!

Composite Decking for Docks, Pools and Water Features

The Advantages of Composite Decking for Docks, Pools and Water Features

Envision® composite decking delivers many advantages over traditional lumber decking for any deck design and home style. In particular, deck designs that incorporate water features — from swimming pools to lakefront docks — benefit greatly from the use of composite decking. In today’s blog from Envision®, we will discuss the advantages of composite decking for designs with pools, docks, and water features.

Stylish Options for Any Home Design

Homes with waterfront views, water features, or swimming pools are a fantastic opportunity to make the most of outdoor living spaces. There are many aesthetic and functional amenities that can be incorporated into the decking design to complement the beauty of the existing water features.

The suite of Envision® composite decking products delivers a full spectrum of colors, textures and styles to match the existing exterior design elements. For waterside deck areas that receive direct sunlight on hot summer days, consider lighter color palettes that will reflect sunlight and help the decking surface stay cooler.

There are a variety of Envision® color options that have a perfect aesthetic for homes with water features. The subtle blue and grey hues of Barnwood Plank from the Envision Inspiration® Collection, or Grey Wood from the Envision Distinction® Collection, are a beautiful complement to azure waters and swimming pools.

For additional inspiration for deck design with water features, check out the Envision® Idea Gallery.

Safety and Comfort for Family and Friends

Envision® composite decking offers excellent advantages for safe and comfortable use all year round. Envision® offers a Hidden Fastener system, which securely fastens to engineered grooves on the sides of each piece of Envision® decking, so every piece of material is securely installed without the numerous and unsightly surface screw holes required by other decking materials.

Unlike traditional lumber decking options, composite decking does not splinter when exposed to water and weather, so your family and friends can enjoy waterside outdoor living in safety and comfort.

Envision® Delivers Reliable Style and Safety

The entire suite of Envision® products, from hidden fasteners to Marquee Railings, are designed for comfort and style, so homeowners can enjoy beauty and comfort all year round.

Envision® Composite Decking Delivers Unrivaled Elegance

Color, style, texture, and distinction are the hallmarks of Envision® excellence. Eleven bold and elegant plank designs are available in our Distinction, Inspiration and Expression collections, representing a full spectrum of color palettes to complement any home design.

Envision® planks feature unique, non-repeating deep woodgrain patterning. This is made possible by our proprietary high-pressure compression moulding technique, which results in a beautiful natural appearance with deep textured woodgrain patterns.

Envision® Offers Branded Accessory Products

When you choose Envision® for your outdoor living space, you’ll get more than beautiful and distinctive composite decking planks, you also get a comprehensive array of decking accessories. Other composite decking manufacturers fail to offer a full suite of functional and aesthetic decking accessories, requiring clients and contractors to settle for mix-and-match materials that result in an inferior finished product.

Branded Envision® accessories are purpose-designed to beautifully accentuate every detail of your composite decking design. Envision® Marquee Railing® products are an elegant addition to any design. Also available are Envision® Tam-Rail® Railing products, an additional offering that further expands the design options available to clients and contractors.

Envision® and Evergrain® Deck Skirting products are a beautiful complement to any Envision® deck design, available in coordinated color options for a seamlessly complete aesthetic for Envision Distinction®, Envision Inspiration®, and Envision Expression® decking.

Hidden Fasteners and Their Purpose

The Style and Function of Hidden Fasteners from Envision®

Hidden Fasteners from Envision® provide style and functionality for a beautiful deck design and unrivaled finished results. Hidden fasteners are designed for safe and secure installation. Carefully engineered, hidden fasteners require no surface screw holes or marring of the decking surface. Experienced contractors will appreciate the functional elegance of Envision® fasteners.

Hidden Fasteners are Purpose-Designed

The entire suite of decking products from Envision® is designed to make installation easy and secure. Hidden fasteners fit perfectly into the slotted grooves on the edge of Envision® decking planks. The result is a tight, secure fit that is nearly invisible.

Hidden Fasteners for Beautiful Design

Unlike the traditional fastening methods still used by other composite decking manufacturers, Envision® Fasteners are nearly invisible once they have been installed. Traditional methods often require that dozens of screws be driven into the surface of every plank of decking, resulting in an unattractive appearance, splintering, and holes that are vulnerable to water penetration.

Hidden Fasteners Keep Your Deck Looking Great Longer

The excellent design engineering of Envision® fasteners helps ensure that decking is securely installed with no unnecessary marring of the beautiful multi-hued texture of the decking surface. Other decking may require plunging hundreds of screw holes in the decking surface, resulting in water penetration and splintering. Over time, this can cause extensive damage to decking and reduce the overall lifespan of the deck. The appearance of an outdoor living space that utilizes the advanced suite of engineered Envision® composite wood decking and branded fastener products will deliver beauty and comfort that the whole family will love.

Envision® Functional Beauty with Hidden Fasteners

Every detail has been carefully engineered to deliver beauty and comfort throughout the entire suite of Envision® products. From hidden fasteners to stylish Envision Marquee Railing®, everything needed to build beautiful outdoor living spaces is available from Envision®. With helpful advice, professional resources, and excellent products, Envision® is here to help inspire beauty.

Complementary Color Schemes for Your Composite Decking Part 3

More Complementary Color Schemes for Your Composite Decking

In previous blog entries, we have explored distinctive design ideas for different home styles and complementary Envision® composite decking aesthetics. Today in the Envision® blog, we explore three new home design styles, and we deliver more ideas to make every deck design beautiful. Read on for more design ideas and advice from Envision®.

Composite Decking to Complement a Townhouse Home Design

Townhomes come in a variety of styles, they share a few defining features. Townhomes are adjoined with their neighbors in a row. Townhomes are generally two or more stories, with the kitchen and living space on the first floor and bedrooms on upper floors. Generally, townhomes have limited lawn space, so it is important to make the most of every square foot of outdoor space available to the homeowner.

A small yard makes it all the more important to be creative when designing outdoor living spaces. The backyard areas in townhomes often open into indoor spaces such as kitchens and living rooms, so a great way to make the outdoor living space feel larger is to extend the indoor aesthetic outdoors with decking designs that offer the comforts and amenities of indoor living. Consider a rich color and deep textured woodgrain that complements the interior design of the home — Rustic Walnut is a beautiful choice that will seamlessly transition interior and exterior designs.

Composite Decking to Complement a Victorian Home Design

Victorian architectural style is characterized by classic Old World design elements, including Romanesque columns and ornate Gothic details in trim, railings, and roof lines. Victorian homes often feature multiple porch and deck areas, such as porticos, balconies and terraces. The color palette of Victorian homes is often neutral, such as eggshell, grey, or pastel shades of blue.

The variety of deck areas make Victorian homes ideal for inspired outdoor living space design. Outdoor furniture with soft textured fabrics and cushions is a great way to bring indoor comforts outdoors. Ambient, dimmable LED lighting is recommended as well. To complement a neutral color palette, consider a delicately textured, multi-hued style from the Envision Distinction® Collection, such as Grey Wood.

Composite Decking to Complement a Farmhouse Home Design

Farmhouse home design is characterized by broad home face with pitched rooflines and a covered porch that runs the length of the front of the home. Farmhouse homes often feature light color palettes, such as eggshell white and pastel blues and tans. Light decking colors, large covered porches, and accentuated railing styles are excellent choices for a farmhouse deck design.

Farmhouse porches are often used as transitional spaces between several indoor rooms, for example, two bedrooms and a living room may share access to a single porch that stretches across the length of the home. So it is recommended to blend the style of indoor design with the style of outdoor design to unify the transitional spaces. This can be accomplished by including a vibrant accent color in both indoor and outdoor designs, complemented by subtly colored Envision® decking products, such as Weathered Wicker from the Envision Inspiration® Collection.

Composite Decks to Match Any Home

There are so many unique and distinctive home styles that it can feel overwhelming to build complementary outdoor living space designs. Envision® makes it easy with helpful design advice, professional resources, and excellent products with a full spectrum of colors and styles to match the aesthetic of any home. Build beautifully with Envision®.

Envision®: How Much Will a Composite Deck Add to Home Value?

How Much Will a New Envision® Composite Deck Add to Home Value?

The addition of a beautiful outdoor living space with Envision® composite decking products can add a substantial amount of value to your home. Whether you want to increase the curb appeal and resale value of your home to prepare it for sale, or you want to increase your family’s comfort and enjoyment for years to come, an outdoor living area made with Envision® composite decking is a perfect way to substantially increase the overall value of your home.

Increased Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is one of the most important elements for successfully marketing a home for sale. A beautiful outdoor living space will encourage potential buyers to imagine enjoying the elegant outdoor amenities of your home with their family and friends. When it comes to bringing homebuyers to the table, creating a compelling vision for the buyer is paramount. A beautiful outdoor space made with Envision® composite decking will make potential buyers feel right at home.

When potential buyers are considering their options in a desirable neighborhood, they will compare your home with nearby listings for sale, and this is where aesthetic appeal will make your home stand out. Increase the value of your home with stylish and comfortable beauty from Envision®. The elegant distinction of a deck from Envision® can make-or-break a home sale, so choose beautiful and comfortable products to set your home apart.

Increased Resale Value

The addition of a deck for outdoor living is one of the most cost-effective remodeling projects that a homeowner can undertake. According to national averages, homeowners recoup roughly 70%-80% of the construction costs for a new deck in the resale value of their home. More expensive remodeling projects, such as a kitchen remodel or the addition of a sunroom, do not recoup nearly the amount of home value that is gained by the addition of a deck.

Consider combining cost-effective home projects to maximize your resale value. Landscaping is another excellent choice for a home project that will recoup a high resale value. If possible, utilize the same contractor to complete both the composite decking remodel as well as the landscaping improvements. This will minimize the overall project cost while maximizing the beauty and value of your home improvement project.

Increased Comfort and Enjoyment

There are few things more valuable than your family’s happiness and enjoyment when you spend time together at home. Increasing the enjoyment value of your home is very important, even if your ultimate goal is to increase the appeal and resale value of your home. If you and your family truly love the outdoor space you have created, potential buyers and their families will, too.

Build something you love with the beauty and comfort of Envision® composite decking. Whether you prefer the bold colors and dramatic highlights of Spiced Teak from the Envision Distinction® Collection, or you prefer the subtle multi-hued tones of Weathered Wicker from the Envision Inspiration® Collection, choose styles that instill a sense of beauty and comfort that you will enjoy for years to come. Your time at home is valuable, so spend it with your family and friends in an outdoor living space you love.

Discover the Value of Envision® Composite Decking

Whether you are hoping to increase curb-appeal to attract potential homebuyers, or you just want to add beauty and comfort to your home for the enjoyment of your family and friends, Envision® composite decking is the ideal choice. The beautiful and bold design styles of the complete Envision® suite of products are the first choice for style and comfort at home.

2018 Decking Trends from Envision®

Inspired Decking Trends for 2018 from Envision®

Hot new decking trends are changing the style of outdoor design in 2018. Envision® is right on the cutting edge, with helpful advice, professional resources, and excellent products that make it easy to design inspired beautiful spaces. From classic comfort to 21st-century technology, 2018 is an exciting year for decking trends.

1) Comfort is King

Comfy cushions, pillows, daybeds, and ottomans are must-have items for deck design this year. The amenities of indoor living are trending in outdoor design, and homeowners have never been more comfortable outdoors. Excellent outdoor upholstery options are now available, making it possible to decorate with products that offer soft texture and cushioned comfort while remaining resilient through weather and wear.

2) Vibrant Color is In

An otherwise neutral-colored design scheme benefits greatly from a splash of brightly colored feature elements to create a vibrant style that draws the eye across the whole design. Choose bright colors that are complemented by the multi-hued Envision Distinction® Collection. Complement the vibrant, fiery red of a Japanese Maple tree with the subtle warmth of Shaded Auburn composite decking. Or, accent the deep grey-blue hues of Envision® Grey Wood composite decking with a variety of bright blue throw pillows.

3) 21st Century Technology Today

It is the 21st century, after all, so it should be no surprise that some technological advances can make outdoor living on an Envision® deck an elegant and modern experience. With new innovations in LED lighting, it is now possible to choose from a wide variety of colors, lighting designs, and distinctive features such as adjustable dimming, color shift lighting, and solar powered options.

New technological advances have even made it possible to control the color and dimming features directly from your smartphone. Bluetooth equipped sound systems can be installed in outdoor living spaces and controlled entirely from the homeowner’s smartphone as well.

4) The Warmth of Fire Features

The aesthetic of a fire feature is a classic complement to contemporary outdoor living. Whether you prefer the natural look of stone masonry or the modern style of stainless steel, a fire feature will bring cozy comfort and a warm elegance to any deck design. The warm glow of a fire feature is complemented beautifully by the Envision Distinction® Collection. Consider the warm tones of Spiced Teak to complement a stone fire feature, or choose the slate blue hues of Grey Wood to complement a stainless steel fire feature. Fire features and comfortable, covered seating areas are perfect for a winter evening sunset over a snowy backyard vista.

5) Year Round Outdoor Comfort

Traditionally, family decks were primarily used in the warmer months of the year, but modern design styles deliver features and amenities that make it possible to enjoy outdoor living spaces all year round. Covered seating areas such as screened-in spaces and pergolas provide protection from weather as well as pesky insects, so any time of the year is a great time to enjoy outdoor living.

A screened-in living space retains warm and cool air, and modern homeowners are now taking advantage of this feature. It is relatively easy to bring indoor air-conditioning into outdoor living spaces, simply by extending existing ductwork to the screened-in areas, so homeowners can stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Envision® Delivers Inspired Design

Complementary Color Schemes for Your Composite Decking Part 2

Composite Decking Colors

More Complementary Color Schemes for Your Composite Decking

Composite Decking ColorsIn a previous blog entry, we discussed design ideas for different home styles and complementary aesthetics of composite decking. Today in the Envision® blog, we continue exploring different styles of homes, and we discuss more ideas to inspire for your next deck design.  Read on for more ideas and tips from Envision®.

Decking to Complement a Coastal Style

Coastal style homes typically utilize lighter colors and clean, open design schemes. The color palettes are often inspired by the gentle pastels of the sand, sky and surf in the surrounding environment. Consider the light blues and greys of clouds in a summer sky, or the light sandy browns and eggshell whites of a beach strewn with seashells. Clean design and complementary colors will make outdoor living spaces at home in the natural beauty of the coast.

For coastal homes with a traditional style and a lighter exterior color scheme, such as a sandy beige with eggshell trim, consider a composite decking material with a light color and subtle amber notes, such as Spiced Teak from the Envision Distinction® Collection.

Decking to Complement a Craftsman Style Home

Craftsman style homes are characterized by traditional Old World architectural elements such as columns and gables, with handcrafted elemental features of stone and woodwork. Craftsman homes have a style that is ornate and traditional, but also feels at one with the environment and incorporates natural elements into the design.  Color palettes are often muted primary colors, such as forest greens or grey blues, with the natural colors of stone and wood featured in design details.

For craftsman homes in the traditional style, consider a composite decking material that delivers dark earthy browns with subtle notes of primary color highlights.  Rustic Walnut is a beautiful choice from the Envision Distinction® Collection, featuring rich browns and hints of muted red.

Decking to Complement a Modern Style

Modern style homes are characterized by clean lines and open layouts. Muted colors such as grey, black, and beige are common, contrasting with expansive windows and natural light that brings in bright colors and texture from the environment outdoors. Modern homes benefit greatly from large deck designs with outdoor living spaces. The transition from inside to outside is often seamless, demanding decking solutions that bring the quality and aesthetic of indoor design into outdoor spaces.

The beauty and versatility of Envision® products are essential for delivering the comfort and aesthetic of interior design seamlessly transitioned into outdoor spaces. The Grey Wood style from the Envision Distinction® Collection is a perfect choice for the modern-styled home.

Composite Decks to Match Any Style

Every home is unique, and the preferences of clients are always personal and distinctive.  Whether the style is Coastal, Craftsman, or Modern, you will find a beautiful complementary aesthetic with Envision®.  We are here to help with useful advice, professional resources, and composite decking materials that deliver beauty and excellence.
