We’ve all been spending a lot more time at home lately, so we want to make sure it’s a comfortable and beautiful place. The new year brings an opportunity to renovate our outdoor space, update it with a fresh look, and make our home safer in the process.
Here are some great ideas that provide big upgrades to the outside of the home:
- New Siding
- New Windows
- New Deck
A simple and noticeable way to change the exterior of a home is to replace the siding. Getting rid of old siding that is at the end of its lifespan or is an outdated color will give the whole house an updated appearance and increase the value of the home. Not only will this increase curb appeal, but it will also ensure that the home is well insulated, cutting down on heating and cooling bills. Replacing old siding also protects against mold and mildew, as well as potential pests. It can be a cost-effective and low-maintenance way to improve the appearance of a house.
New windows are another great way to update your home this year. Especially in cooler months, old drafty windows can cause problems by allowing cold air into the home, which increases heating costs. Instead of covering those drafty windows with unattractive plastic, replacement windows can be an affordable option that provides comfort and quality while keeping down those utility costs. Like new siding, updating and upgrading the windows adds to the aesthetic of the home, making it more inviting to both owners and visitors.
For more social people, investing in a new deck is a fantastic way to create a welcoming outdoor space for friends and family. A new deck provides an outdoor oasis from the daily grind and it can be a great place to entertain. When thinking about installing a new deck, you can choose the right size and materials to meet your needs and fit your budget. Updating an existing outdoor space or building a new deck can add value to a home and provide the perfect place to relax.
