Wondering how to improve curb appeal for your home? You might think about landscaping, painting your front door, or power washing the siding. But did you know that your roof and windows are just as important to the curb appeal of your home? Read below for some of the ways these investments can boost the value of your home.
Did you know that almost half of the part of your home visible from the curb is roof? Step outside and take a look—you might be surprised at just how much roof you can see. Making sure that the wide, visible expanse is in good shape will instantly boost your home’s curb appeal. Stains, missing shingles, and visible damage will reduce the curb appeal of your home.
While stains—generally cause by algae—are usually only an aesthetic problem that can be treated, missing shingles and damage need to be addressed promptly. Get in touch with a residential roofing company—like Don Sharp Home Improvements—for roof leak repair. Our roofers and contractors can make sure that your gutters are in good shape, too—this means making sure they are clean and not sagging or damaged.
Affordable roofing is key to keeping your roof and home looking great. We can inspect your roof, do repairs to shingles, flashings, and gutters—or install sleek gutter guards—and do larger repairs to structural damage to the roof.
What else do you notice when you look at your home from the outside? Your windows! As another obvious point of focus, it’s important to make sure your windows and window frames are well-maintained. Peeling paint on the sills, rotting frames, and pitted, cracked, or cloudy glass can detract from curb appeal.
Replacing the windows might be the way to go. You can choose grids or no grids—the divisions into panes—to match your home and style, and can update your frames and take care of any rot or paint issues.
At Don Sharp Home Improvements, we can install energy efficient windows. These windows eliminate future rot problems because of their vinyl frames, and are easy to clean—they tilt inwards, meaning you can clean the exterior glass from inside and get them sparkling more often.
But in addition to boosting the curb appeal, there are other benefits of energy efficient windows, which can boost the value of your home. There are a few types of energy efficient windows—ours have argon gas between the panes, which prevents frost and stops heat loss.
While the best energy efficient window might depend on your home and location, our double-paned windows with a low-e coating that reflects heat are a practical, popular, and durable choice that we have expertly installed for years. These windows keep hot air out in the summer and in during the winter, which helps save money on your utility bills.
