Enhancing your curb appeal is only the beginning when it comes to exterior renovations. Whether you’re considering renovating for personal enjoyment or you’re about to put your home up for sale, there are plenty of ways to make your home unique while adding value.
Get The Right Look
Aesthetic is an important aspect of exterior renovations. Everyone decorates their interior, but if you want your home to truly be yours you need to update the outside. Your house should be a structure that you enjoy looking at and one that welcomes you whenever you come home.
The best way to do that is to make your home’s exterior in your image. You work hard to keep your home beautiful, why shouldn’t you turn it into your dream home?
Different Ways To Renovate
There are some common paths people take when renovating their homes, but there are also some unique options. Don’t limit yourself to traditional renovations.
Low Maintenance Options
If you find yourself spending copious amounts of time maintaining the exterior of your home instead of hanging out with your family, this upgrade is for you. Even switching out one or two of your current building materials for these low maintenance options will save you precious time.
Ask your contractor about the best options for your home.
Become Energy Efficient
Solar panels are a great option for the homeowner who wants to save a ton of money over time. This renewable renovation is a bottomless source of energy. It will save your wallet while helping save the planet. It’s a win-win!
Change Your Exterior Building Material
Insulated vinyl siding is a great way to save money and keep your home at the ideal temperature. It also reduces the influx of outdoor noise which is a great bonus if you live in a loud neighborhood or next to a busy road.
This insulation will stay in place for years to come, unlike batt insulation that will move and create drafts after a few years. It’s also a great opportunity to change the color of your home.
Replace Your Roof
This is an expensive upfront cost, but it’s worth it. Living under an old roof can be just as expensive, if not more expensive. A new roof will help prevent water and wood damage that can occur due to an older damaged roof.
Replacing your roof is one of the best exterior renovations to help sell your home. Potential buyers will love that you took the time to provide them with this upgrade.
Get New Windows
Give your home a full facelift by installing new windows. Not only will it change the entire look of your home, but it will give you the opportunity to get windows that function the way you want them to. You deserve better than single hung windowpanes.
Change Your Doors
Your front and backdoor can be changed for aesthetic or security. Give them a quick coat of paint to give them a fresh look. If you’re worried about security, a steel door will prevent unwanted visitors.
Add Some Outdoor Living Space
Everyone loves a great outdoor living space. Adding a deck, patio, balcony, or porch onto your home is a practical and fun renovation. You will be able to get more value and use out of your outdoor space and a new buyer will be able to picture themselves living there.
You’ll be able to enjoy the Florida weather 365 days a year.
Don’t Forget The Pool
The hot and humid summer months require some relief. Installing a gorgeous pool will give you an escape all year long. After your first swim on a 100-degree day, it’ll pay for itself. It will also add a ton of resale value, especially in Southern Florida.
