5 Ways to Upgrade Your Home’s Exterior

Exterior Remodeling Contractor Oakland County

Whether you are building a new home or have decided to upgrade your current home’s curb appeal, we are here to help.

In this blog post, we will go over five ways you can improve how your home looks from the street so you’ll be able to enjoy it for years to come. For more information on home exterior renovation, we recommend speaking with a licensed Oakland County home building contractor in your area.


1. Windows

Windows take up a lot of space in your home’s façade, which is why windows are so important in maintaining your home’s curb appeal. While quality window installation can last you for decades, eventually there reaches a point where they are no longer functional or energy efficient. If this is the case, why not invest in windows that complement the exterior of your home?

If you live in a historical home, it’s important that you select a window style that’s appropriate for the architectural guidelines of your home. You may also have to choose from a specific color palette to maintain the architectural integrity of the home.

2. Doors

Nothing increases your home’s curb appeal than an inviting front door. There is no shortage in designs and colors for you to choose from. For example, you may want to consider front door designs that have windows to let in natural light. You may also want to consider choosing a color that pops against your home’s exterior color scheme such as vibrant red or a rich dark green color. An exterior home contractor will be able to help you choose an exterior door to reflect your home’s style and your design preferences.

3. Roofs

An old damaged roof is noticeable from the road and makes your home appear neglected. If you are trying to sell your home, a potential homebuyer may assume that the inside of your home is just as neglected as the outside. In order to restore your home’s exterior aesthetic, we recommend residential roof replacement. A new roof will also protect your home from water and mold damage caused by leaks.

4. Siding

Faded siding is more than just an eyesore. When exterior siding is exposed to UV rays, it makes the paint fade and weakens the structural integrity of the material. In order to protect your home from water, mold, or insect damage, we recommend replacing old siding.

5. Architectural Accents

Architectural accents help make certain features of your home stand out. For example, new shutters can draw attention to beautiful window designs. While serving a function purpose, gutters and downspouts can also add to the exterior aesthetic of your home. Be sure to talk to an experienced home remodeling contractor to learn what other accents can improve curb appeal.
