Ever felt like your home needed a makeover? Home improvement projects will change the way your home looks, but you need to consider how each project would affect your home’s overall curb appeal. For example, changing the roofing system will make a different visual impact than changing the windows and siding.
Here’s Universal Roofing and Exteriors’ quick guide to major home improvement projects and their expected effects.
One of the largest parts of your home is the roof. That means replacing it is likewise one of the most impactful things you can do as far as curb appeal goes. Your choice of roofing material can completely alter the profile of your home or can simply enhance it by giving it a more polished look. In any case, damaged or outdated shingles are visible from the street and will compromise your home’s curb appeal, so you should have them fixed or replaced right away.
Just like with roofing damage, problems with your siding can ruin your home’s curb appeal. Siding projects don’t always have to involve complete replacement, however; regular washing and repainting will have a huge effect on how your home looks. We recommend turning to a siding contractor for advice on whether you need new siding or if some cleaning will suffice.
Windows and Doors
If the siding and the roof dictate the overall look of the home, the windows and doors are the fine details. It’s natural for someone walking by to be drawn to the windows and doors facing the street, so you don’t want these components to look dilapidated or dull. Replace aging doors and windows as soon as you can.
Other Home Improvement Projects
There are plenty of other home improvement projects that can greatly improve your home’s overall look. For example, maintaining your landscaping or repainting the gutters might not seem like substantial makeovers, but every little bit of change will add many points to your curb appeal.
