You are familiar with the phrase “Everything old is new again.” This is true when it comes to Tile, but today’s tile is not the same as it was even a few years ago. No more having to decide which color of square tile and which size of square tile you would like to look at for the next umpteen years. English Home Improvements is excited that tile now comes in an endless variety of textures, colors and patterns on both the surface and the edges. Our Tennessee home owners have a myriad of choices from rustic or Tuscan Country to traditional or super sleek and modern. Your tile can look like hardwood flooring or intricate fabric and textiles or even like natural stone. If you want lots of colors and patterns there are tiles that are reminiscent of old Mexico or Italy or Portugal available for everywhere from backsplashes to counter tops to floors or as an accent on walls. If you like super urban contemporary there are tiles with rectified edges (think zero grout lines!) and modern patterns that will make you feel like you are in a New York City Penthouse! Seriously, if you have not considered tile lately as a contender for your flooring, shower or kitchen surface needs, you should take a fresh look. Not only has the look of tile changed dramatically, but so have the materials used to install it.

James Hardie Siding
English Home Improvements is home to a team of dedicated professional siding installation specialists who can easily transform your home’s dated and weathered exterior into the envy of your neighborhood (and for those of you in the East side, we even help you to preserve the historic look and feel of your older home). We install a full range of siding materials including wood, aluminum, vinyl, and fiber-cement. The siding material market is a busy one so brands, material, styles, colors, gauges and your personal budget should all be reviewed and factored in to the process. While vinyl is the most common siding choice, homeowners should give serious consideration to fiber cement (Hardie Board ®) as an option for restoring your home’s curb appeal and value. Remodeling magazine rated re-siding with fiber cement as the #1 upscale remodeling ROI (Return on Investment) from 2005 through 2015. No wonder more than 5.5 million homes across America include James Hardie siding products!
Actually, it is no laughing matter why we here at English Home Improvements highly recommend James Hardie (aka Hardie Board) Fiber Cement Siding over any brand of vinyl siding. Let’s start by finding out what Vinyl Siding is made of:
Vinyl siding is plastic exterior siding for a house, used for decoration and weatherproofing, imitating wood clapboard, and used instead of other materials such as aluminum or fiber cement siding. It is an engineered product, manufactured primarily from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin.
Well, we have done it again! English Home Improvements has been selected and awarded as the Best Contractor for 2016! We feel honored but also a little bit deserving. If that sounds like pride, well, yes, it can be construed that way. You see, we show up for all of our appointments. This may sound like no big deal, until you get the experience of waiting around all day for a contractor who never shows up!
