Maintaining your home’s exterior is a must for every homeowner. It’s the first thing your neighbors will see when they pass by. From the roofing system to the landscaping, a well-maintained exterior can work wonders for your curb appeal and your home’s overall property. Unfortunately, there are times where you lack either the time or money to maintain your home’s exterior.
In this post, Empire Contractors LLC discusses the hassle-free ways you can maintain your home’s curb appeal.
Update Your Siding
Siding is one of the important parts of your home’s exterior. It not only gives the home life through its color but it also protects the home from the elements. Wood siding requires a lot of maintenance but vinyl, fiber cement and other siding materials may reduce maintenance. Certain siding types don’t rot and can resist expanding and contracting due to weather changes, lessening your worries regarding your home’s exterior.
Replacing your roof may be costly at first, but the right roof can boost your curb appeal immensely. One roof type that can accomplish this is a metal roof. You won’t have to clean up granules from your gutters and lawn and you don’t have to worry as much when it comes to patching it up like you would asphalt roofs.
The gutters are one of the exterior parts of the home you often worry about. You constantly have to clean and maintain the gutter system to keep damage from a recent storm at bay. You can rectify this by installing gutter guards or leaf catchers in your gutters. While it’s not a total solution, it can help lessen any dirt or debris that can fall into your gutters.
A deck is a wonderful addition to any home. You can spend time with friends and family under the stars on any cool night given the chance. However, they can also require much upkeep. A composite deck, on the other hand, lessens maintenance requirements. Not only do they cost less but all you would need to do is clean the deck instead of staining and sealing it every few years like you would any wooden deck. Composite decking also require few repairs since they don’t split, splinter or warp like traditional decks.
