Taking care of your home is a labor of love. While replacing old windows or installing rain gutters is an investment, it can also help you take some pride in the place you call home.

How can I improve the exterior of my house?

  • Replace old windows
  • Install an eye-catching front door
  • Replace an old, deteriorating roof
  • Replace damaged siding
  • Consider adding shutters
  • Install gutters and downspouts

1.) Replace Old 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 house windows 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 replacement 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.) Install an Eye-Catching Front Door

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. One of our remodeling contractors will be able to help you choose an exterior door to reflect your home’s style and your design preferences.

3.) Replace an Old, Deteriorating Roof

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 outward appearance, we recommend roof replacement. A new roof will also protect your home from water and mold damage caused by leaks.

4.) Replace Damaged Siding

Siding protects your home from water, mold, and insects. This is why it’s important you call us as soon as you notice damage to your house siding. Otherwise, your home could be exposed to moisture and insect damage. Damaged siding also takes away from your home’s curb appeal.

According to Remodeling Magazine, siding replacement has a return on investment of 92.8%. Homebuyers want to be able to take basic maintenance for granted, which includes taking care of the house’s exterior. New siding will also look great as prospective buyers pull into your driveway.

5.) Consider Adding Architectural Accents

Architectural accents help make certain features of your home stand out. For example, new shutters can draw attention to beautiful window designs. Gutters and downspouts can also add to the exterior aesthetic of your home. Not to mention, you’ll be happy to have new gutters the next time it rains!
