Whether you are looking to sell your home or just do some updating, we have a few ideas to improve your home’s curb appeal. Does your home reflect your style? Or, does it reflect the style of the previous owner or the style you had 20 years ago when you bought it? If you are feeling like your house needs some curb appeal, read on to find out where to begin with your home’s face lift.
In terms of adding curb appeal, the roof is a good place to start. We all know that a solid roof is vital to the overall condition of your home, as it protects your home and family from the elements, helps to regulate the temperature inside the house, and lower your energy consumption. Many homes have asphalt roofing on the entire home, but using slate, cedar or metal on certain areas of roofing on your home can create a more interesting look and enhance curb appeal.
It is reported that the first thing a person notices about a house is the entry. The entry includes the walkway, lighting, porch and front door. The best way to tackle an entry-way project is to call the professionals. You want to make this area looking interesting but not busy. It is a good idea to get a professional contractor involved to help you design something with a current look that will work with your home’s current structure.
New siding can make all the difference when updating the exterior of your home. There are quite a few options to choose from. Not only is there a large color selection, there are many styles to choose from. Windows also are major players in your curb appeal. If you are going to install new siding it’s best to also install new windows. To change the siding but not the windows may look patchy and give your home a look that is inconsistent. Be very thoughtful, however, with vintage windows. Again, we recommend calling a professional to get feedback where siding and windows are concerned. They will help you select options that will work best for your home.
