• Signs That Your Home Could Use New Siding

    Your siding makes up a substantial portion of your curb appeal, so even with a beautiful entry door and new window treatments, you still need to be concerned with the look of your siding . Bad siding can actually drain your home’s energy efficiency in addition to taking away from your curb appeal, and it could contribute to a mold problem as well. Look out for these signs that your home could use new siding.

    Increasing Energy Bills

    Energy-efficient windows and doors trap heated or cooled air inside, so your energy bills will go down and your HVAC equipment won’t have to overextend itself. If your energy bills are still too high even with your energy-saving windows and doors, then your siding could be the problem. If your exterior walls are falling apart, they won’t do much to separate your conditioned indoor air from the uncomfortable outdoor air. Then your heater or air conditioner will have to work harder, requiring more energy and raising your bills. Replace your siding to fix this problem.

    Cracking and Fading

    Siding may be the first aspect of your house that catches people’s eyes as they pass by, so you want it to look good. If yours is cracking and fading, your curb appeal could suffer in a big way. This can bring down the value of your home, annoy your neighbors and the town, and make it more difficult to sell your home in the future. If your siding is significantly faded or is starting to show obvious cracks, it’s probably time to replace it.

    Mold Growth

    Moisture is the primary component behind mold. If you find mold, mildew, or any kind of fungus growing out of your siding, then there is probably water trapped in the wall. Deal with this problem by clearing out the mold and replacing your siding.

  • Ways to Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal This Season

    Curb appeal is important whether or not you plan to sell your home this fall. Homeowners can take pride in a well-maintained, aesthetically appealing house, and you’ll love showing off the improvements to friends and family. When planning any remodeling project, you should maintain consistency with your home’s style, such as by choosing double-hung replacement windows for a Colonial-style home.

    Replace your old windows and entry door.

    You might be surprised at the difference a new set of windows can make for your home’s curb appeal. Stylish windows make a house seem more inviting. Plus, they increase your home’s value because newer windows are more energy-efficient. If you do decide to put your home up for sale this season, then new, energy-efficient windows will be a major selling point. While you’re giving your house a facelift, consider replacing the entry door. New doors made of fiberglass can flawlessly mimic the look of real wood, and the glass panels will let in lots of sunshine.

    Hire professional painters or pressure washers.

    If your home’s exterior hasn’t been washed in a while, it’s time to hire pressure washers. Scrubbing off the grime, mildew, and algae will make your home look brand new again. If you have a painted exterior instead of vinyl siding, consider adding a fresh coat of paint. Choose a neutral, universally appealing shade if you plan to sell your home.

    Add some fresh mulch and edging.

    A little landscaping can go a long way. Add some stone edging to your garden beds, or consider building a retaining wall if your home is on a slope. Top off the beds with a fresh layer of mulch, and remember that fall is typically a good time to prune shrubs.
