MTB Windows and More mountain home renovation, new exterior door and stone sidingMany residents of Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Northern Virginia enjoy weekend trips to the mountains of Maryland and West Virginia. The two-hour drive often leads to the desire to have a vacation home of their very own. That means building a mountain home or purchasing one and turning into that dream getaway. Building a custom home can get you exactly what you want. But, if the idea of doing some major renovations to make a good home a great one, MTB Windows & More can help.

These professional remodeling experts want to help you get even more excited about a future remodeling project. Experienced designers and builders can explain the myriad of home renovation options as part of such a project. Upgrades through MTB, or it’s parent company Mt. Tabor Builders, can include major and minor changes, depending on the need and budget.


Searching for Mountain Real Estate

Mountain home property in Western MarylandThe first step for those that want a mountain home, is too research the real estate market. Searches in Berkeley Springs, Paw Paw and Cacapon in West Virginia is a good place to start. Searches of the area can be expanded from there. The next step is to narrow down the options and take plenty of photos of those homes. Consulting with MTB home improvement specialists can then help narrow the decision, based on the desired outcome.

Once the purchase is made and the improvements are agreed upon, an MTB project manager will take the lead in working with the homeowners. That MTB rep will take care of the permitting process, help with any financing hurdles and then put together a work schedule. Since it will likely be a second home, the work schedule will be easy to outline. If it’s a primary home — relocating or retiring to the mountains — a schedule that fits into the homeowner’s schedule can be agreed upon.

Upgrades under the MTB purview include replacement windows, entry doors, roofing, exterior finishes and more. The products used — Andersen Windows, Therma-Tru Doors and GAF Shingles — bring new life to the look of the mountain home and add significant value to the property.
