5 Relatively Small Changes for Big Impact to Your Home’s Exterior

Ahead of winter is a great time to give your home’s exterior a much-needed facelift. And, the good news is that giving your home a fresh face is completely doable if you make several smaller changes that can have a big impact!

First up, if you have a wood home, most are made of cedar clapboard, chances are you’ve had to or will need to paint your home’s exterior at some point. Why not ditch the paint in favor of virtually no-maintenance siding? Siding is a great way to update your home’s exterior with a clean, tastefully colorful façade that’s got great curb appeal. Want some more reasons? Check out our blog post on 4 immediate benefits of siding your home.

Also, chances are if you have a wood home the door jams around your storm doors are wood, too. This means that eventually they may rot out. Consider replacing exterior door jams with a durable, maintenance-free product like PVC. Add a new exterior door, too, while you’re at it and presto—you’ve got a fabulous update for a relatively low cost!

In addition, consider updating your decking and exterior hand rails. Nowadays, PVC composite decking and hand railings are virtually maintenance free and a welcome replacement for rotting decks or wobbly hand railings.

Also, if your home is outfitted with old windows, consider installing new replacement windows, which provide for easy cleaning courtesy of their phenomenal tilting options. New windows can do wonders in terms of insulating your home and helping you to cut down on winter heating costs and they look great, both inside and out!

Finally, has your garage door seen better days? If so, no problem! Replace an outdated garage door with a newer model of today, many of which include charming details such as molding and strategically placed windows for additional flair.
