6 Ways to Improve Your Home’s Exteriors

Improving your home’s exterior increases the curb appeal and value of your home, as well as the pride you take in it. Some exterior projects deliver a better return on investment than others.  Here are some of the fundamental options you have when looking to increase the functionality and appearance of your dwelling:

1. Roof Repair/Replacement

Whether or not you are planning to sell your home soon, the roof should maintain a priority. Roof problems can quickly escalate and become major repair expenses – taking care of damaged areas as soon as possible will help to keep your home safe and dry.

2. Landscaping Details

Landscaping can be as simple as watering the lawn and as complex as tiered gardens, concrete, and stepping stone. Begin by getting your lawn healthy and get rid of any weeds or debris. Choose plants based on how much time you have to spend on gardening, not how they look in someone else’s yard.

3. Painting

Even the best paint needs a minor touch-up every now and then. Door and window trim, and details around the home may need some attention at the end of the summer storm season.  If working with older homes, be wary of toxic lead paint.

4. Window Replacement

New windows make a huge difference in terms of appearance and energy efficiency. The wide variety of styles available means that you should be able to find something that complements your home’s architectural style.

5. Siding

Siding protects structural components from the elements; however, long-term exposure to the weather can cause siding to crack or become discolored. New siding will do a better job of safeguarding your home’s structural integrity while also improving its exterior appearance.

6. New Gutters

During heavy rains, gutters keep water away from your house thus protecting your windows, doors and foundation from water damage. Invest in new gutters or replace your existing system to ensure that it can handle the volume of rainfall that your home receives.
