Curb appeal is an important consideration when planning an exterior remodel: it can make your home look great, and can even increase its value. In today’s post, local roofing company Adams Roofing Professionals, Inc. shares some exterior design ideas that can help boost your home’s curb appeal.
1. Siding replacement — Siding covers most of the exterior walls, which is why keeping it in good condition is important. Old and worn-out siding can easily give the impression that the entire house is in the same condition. If your siding is due for replacement, take this as an opportunity to give your home a makeover by exploring other siding styles.
2. Make your front door pop — Unlike most other parts of your home’s exterior, the front door stands out when it doesn’t blend in with the rest of the exterior color palette. Bold colors such as red or bright yellow make the front entry door clearly visible from the curb, signaling the eye where to hone in. Whether you’re looking into repainting your front door or replacing it with a factory-applied finish, we recommend trying out color swatches to see which color works best with your home exterior.
3. Roof replacement — Roof replacement is one of the biggest projects you will undertake, but it’s also the one with the most benefits. More than just addressing the problems caused by a leaking roof, a roof replacement project with the right selection of material, color, and style can dramatically boost your home’s curb appeal.
4. Add some greenery — Landscaping can complement your home’s exterior and boost its curb appeal. There are many ways to go about adding some greenery or improving the one you already have, from putting in the time cultivating your choice of plants to adding planters and window boxes. Plants can be used to accentuate key exterior components like windows and entryways. If properly cared for, the plants in your yard can also help prevent soil erosion and other types of damage caused by flooding.
