On your next home improvement project, the changes you’ll be making should help enhance your property’s curb appeal. There’s a lot of ways to do this, but we’ve picked the four projects that will have the most impact.
1. Repair or Replace your Roof
The roof is the most visible structure that people will see from the curb, and it plays a key role in safeguarding your house from the elements. A roof that’s old or in disrepair will bring down the value of your property on top of making it more vulnerable to the weather. On your next home improvement project, invest in roof maintenance. If your asphalt shingle roof is more than 20 years old, then you should consider replacing it.
2. Install a New Deck
One of the quickest ways to improve the value of your home is by installing a deck in your backyard or a porch in your front lawn. These add-ons will increase the value of your home by extending your living space, providing you with a usable space outdoors.
3. Get New Exterior Wall Cover
Your next home improvement project is also the best time to invest in new siding. If you’re still using exterior wall paint or wood siding, then we recommend making the switch to vinyl. Unlike paint, it does not require reapplication and has better weather tolerance than wood siding.
On top of doubling as a secondary weather barrier for your home, insulated variants of vinyl siding also add some much-needed insulation that will improve the energy efficiency of your property.
4. Replace Old Windows
The windows play a key role in naturally ventilating and insulating the house, but they won’t do this effectively when they are in disrepair. Like the roof, the windows are one of the most visible parts of your house. Replace old, worn-out windows to safeguard your property’s curb appeal.
