A home makeover can go a long way in helping to improve your home value. This is especially true if you focus on the curb appeal of your property. One of the most effective ways to perform a home makeover is by replacing your siding and upgrading your windows.
Replace Your Siding
If your old siding is beginning to show signs of age or simply has too much visible wear and tear; for example, the color is beginning to fade or there is visible damage, then installing new siding is a smart investment. Replacing your siding has a huge impact on your home’s curb appeal because of the fact that it will greatly overhaul the appearance of your exterior all without having to worry about construction, which makes it more cost-effective than something like building an addition.
New siding can also help to insulate your home more effectively, especially if your old siding was extremely outdated. Better insulation will help reduce your energy costs and keep your home more comfortable.
Upgrade Your Windows
Upgrading your windows can have many benefits. The following are just a few of the reasons why you should strongly consider installing new windows:
- Improve your home’s aesthetic – Older windows often look old – their colors fade, their frames begin to splinter and crack and more. Some of the glass may even be broken. New windows will simply make your exterior look better.
- Make your home safer – Older windows are often quite heavy, making them difficult to open. Additionally, older windows may not operate as well as they once did, meaning that they may stick as you try to open them, or they may not stay in place. Obviously, both of these cases present a serious safety risk. You’ll want to be able to open your windows in case you have to leave the house in an emergency — and you won’t want the windows falling down on your hands when you try to open them. Newer windows are lighter and easier to operate.
- Save money – Newer windows are extremely efficient and will you reduce your heating and cooling bills.
- Improve comfort – Because of how efficient new windows are, you won’t have to worry about those cold drafts anymore.
