The outside needs attention as well being the first thing friends, neighbors, or potential buyers if you plan to sell will notice about your home. Some years, simply pressure washing the exterior is enough to make the house look new again. Over time however, the house takes damage from storms and weather and if you haven't replaced components of your home's exterior as issues arose it may be time to consider a full makeover.
Reasons to Consider New Siding
The main reason most people consider to put new siding on their house is cosmetic. The old siding may have become damaged or just dingy beyond being able to be cleaned up using normal techniques. Then again, the homeowner may just want the house to be a different color. There are other reasons than simple cosmetics, as today's siding options are have come a long way with new technological advances compared to siding from just 10-20 years ago. New siding can provide a better seal and add insulation, reducing power bills and improving the air quality inside the home.
Modern Window Options
Nice windows can really make the house, as they're both an interior and exterior feature. Like modern siding, new windows provide better insulation to reduce bills. Another aspect of new windows is you'll actually use them when they work properly, raising and lowering smoothly with little effort, which allows for clean air to come in and allows you to cool naturally on days with moderate weather rather than continuing to run the air conditioner. There are also styles available to provide light with privacy according to the needs of any room, and there are glamorous options for bay windows and sliding windows which add to both the comfort and value of the house.
Finish with Doors, Shutters, and Gutters
Siding and windows are the bulk of your home's exterior, but the finishing touches are the doors, shutters and gutters. Doors are what everybody notices as they enter the house and should be as nice if not nicer than the rest of your homes exterior both for beauty and function. Although modern shutters aren't functional as they were in the old days, but they still add a nice touch of contrast and color to break up the home's exterior and add interest. You probably don't think much about gutters but they add a structural function to the house and old, damaged ones will stick out like a sore thumb.
