Tuscany Homes, builder of custom homes in Vancouver WA, continues its three-part series on glossary terms related to home construction. Hopefully, the following definitions will educate you on the intricacies of the building industry.
Exposed Aggregate Finish – This is when the top layer of concrete is washed away before it has fully dried. This method, used for drive ways, patios, and walkways, exposes the gravel in the concrete and gives it some texture.
Gable – Is the triangular area of a home where one side of a pitched roof intersects with the other.
Keyless – A light fixture that doesn’t have a switch installed on the wall, but is turned on and off by a pull string. These types of lights are usually found in attics and crawl spaces.
