Home remodeling can include custom home improvements for virtually every room in the house. Custom home remodeling may be done on the interior of the home, as well as the exterior. Kitchen remodeling may involve replacing sinks, faucets, and cabinets. Some kitchen home remodeling tasks will include creating a fitted kitchen with built-in cabinetry. Bathroom home remodeling often involves replacing plumbing and light fixtures.

Some aspects of custom home remodeling may involve roofing and siding. Replacing a home's old or damaged roof can be a way of protecting the investment of a house. When remodeling the siding of a home, a preferred material is vinyl. Wood was once a popular material to use for custom siding, although vinyl has more durability and resistance to the elements.

The deck or patio is generally a major part of custom home remodeling involving the exterior of a house. Adding on to expand the dimensions of a patio is one way of remodeling. Adding protective sealants and power washing the deck can be another aspect of remodeling the patio. Add-ons such as gas grills and fire pits may also be considered part of a custom home remodeling project.

Custom home additions are another aspect of custom home remodeling jobs. This may include an added room or extension. Knocking out walls to expand can be one way of adding on to a room. Remodeling the garage to convert into a bedroom or den is an option. Some homeowners choose to remodel an attic or finish a basement for an extra room.

Many homeowners winterize their attics by updating their heating system. In this case, attic insulation is an essential part of home remodeling. Adding proper cooling systems and ventilation is another way of remodeling the attic.

Remodeling a kitchen may include adding built-in appliances and cupboards. This is sometimes referred to as a fitted kitchen. Built-in shelving will accommodate the room's dimensions. As an example, a kitchen may have all stainless steel appliances, or all laminate cabinets.

A major part of custom home remodeling is window replacement. Many homeowners who wish to sell their home will replace all windows to add to the home's value and overall appearance. Upgrading a home's windows can also improve energy efficiency.

Other essential aspects of custom home remodeling include replacing exterior doors. Adding beveled glass doors may be one option when remodeling. Exterior sliding doors are another option. These are typically made with glass and often lead to an outdoor patio area.
