Take advantage of the warm, sunny days by updating your home’s exterior. There’s no better season to get this done. Here are some ideas on how you can achieve a fresh look for your home.
Swap Out Your Windows and Doors
Your main entry door and your windows can do wonders for your curb appeal. Even a simple change of paint for your door and windows is enough to transform your home’s exterior. However, if you feel drafts around your windows, you may want to consider installing new ones and investing in more energy-efficient window products. BSR offers an array of window options, including fiberglass, wood, vinyl, aluminum and composite windows.
As for your door, you can also switch to a new one if opening and closing it has become a pain in the neck. Storm doors can also be a good addition as they provide more insulation.
Replace Your Old Roofing
Summer is a great time to have your roof checked for leaks or missing shingles. Make sure that all the other components of your roofing system are in good condition as well. Consult professionals like us to know if roof repair or reroofing would be necessary. You should also ask experts regarding the best materials that fit your needs.
Refresh Curb Appeal With New Siding
If you really want a more noticeable change for your home’s exterior, you may also consider new siding. This is also a good idea if repainting your siding is no longer enough. Old siding typically becomes susceptible to rot, mold and mildew, which makes it difficult for the siding to hold paint. Watch out for loose or missing boards as these can reduce the weather resistance of your home.
