Housing makeover shows are extremely popular, from whole-home builds including the interior and exterior, to interior decor specific. It can be very exciting to update rooms inside your home. You spend a lot of time in them every day, and with new fun features, trendy colors and modern appliances you’ll get so much more enjoyment out of your home. But at My Handy Craftsman Inc. we’re here to tell you that exterior home renovations are just as exciting, if not more important!
The exterior of your home isn’t just siding and paint, it’s anything outside your front door, including the door itself, windows, decking and roofing. An updated housing exterior not only looks great, but extends the life of your property!
Boost Curb Appeal
There are a lot of features that can be updated and added to the exterior of your home. When planning a home exterior makeover, consider the following:
While a well-made roof can last 15 to 20 years, yours may be older or has been subject to some extreme weather. Don’t let your roof ruin the rest of your home from the top down. Keep it strong and new!
Vinyl siding lasts even longer than roofing—20 to 40 years to be exact. Change up the color or fix damaged siding. Siding is such a major part of your home, it’ll make an immediate difference!
Like siding, a wooden house that is repainted looks like it was just built! Change up your color, or fix peeling paint for maximum curb appeal.
Fencing adds a lot to a house. Whether you have old fencing that needs replacing, or you are installing a fence for the first time, rely on My Handy Craftsman Inc. to build it the way you want, and ensure it’s up to code.
The centerpiece of your back or front yard, decking adds a stately esthetic to your home and is great for entertaining in the summer. A barbecue without a deck is just not the same.
Imagine your home with all these updates. It would look brand-new!
Exterior home renovations can be done to drastically change the appearance of your home, or repair it while keeping its original character. No matter the direction you go in, there are a multitude of benefits.
Up curb appeal and up resale value at the same time. Everyone wants to live in a home that’s received the proper upkeep. So whether you’re selling or not, make sure you’re one of the people who gets to live in a home that doesn’t require much maintenance!
Updates get rid of the old and bring in the new, making your home newer. Even if it’s 100 years old, with an exterior remodel, you’ll be adding years to your home’s life.
Insulation techniques evolve as the years go by, and older homes probably did not get to benefit from the best options. Ask us about improving insulation as we go, and save on energy bills!
