Taking care of your home’s exterior is just as important as all the work you do to maintain your interior. For example replacing your home’s siding, repainting the exterior and replacing the windows may not be as fun as painting your home’s interior or updating appliances, but taking care of these projects is extremely beneficial in the long run. Here are some easy exterior home improvements that you can do to boost curb appeal:
Trim And Molding Replacement
An often overlooked opportunity for home restoration is trim and molding replacement. Corners and edges can appear worn overtime and blur the edges of your sharply done exterior painting job. New or refinished trim and moldings can make all the difference.
Window & Door Replacement
Old windows and doors don’t only detract from your home’s curb appeal, but they’re probably burning a hole in your wallet. Drafty windows and doors can really hike up you your energy bill. To avoid added costs and to enhance your home’s appearance replace old windows and door for new energy efficient models.
Replacing your home’s siding can improve its appearance, increase energy efficiency, and protect against the elements. There are four types of siding: wood, aluminum, vinyl, and fiber cement. A siding professional, like us at CTG Improvements, can help you decide which is right for your case. While you may think you can complete a siding project yourself, that may not be such a good idea. If your home’s walls have dry rot or are holding moisture, hiring a professional is always the way to go.
A deck can really add appeal to a home. An old-looking deck, on the other hand, can really detract from a home’s value. If the wood in your deck appears to be in poor condition, a deck replacement project is an option.
You have plenty of options for increasing your home’s curbside appeal — even on a budget. Take a look at your home and decide which project might be worth the money.
