Local Siding Company: How To Increase Curb Appeal

December 20, 2017

An exterior facelift can transform the look of a home. Some new paint, trim details or even siding can give your home that “WOW” factor that it’s been missing. We understand that these aesthetics may not be the first thing on your mind during the winter months, especially December when we are all typically spending MUCH more money than we do during the other 11 months out of the year. Contract Exteriors, your local siding company, just wants to let you know how we can help this Spring when you want your home to look the best that it possibly can.

Maintenance of the exterior of your home is the best way to keep the curb appeal high, especially if you plan on selling it in the near future. Any defects, such as rotting or cracked materials, can turn buyers away. We can take care of those defects and then add some personality with color, some trim or shingles.

Take the condo below for example. Due to it’s location to the ocean, the siding suffered a lot of wear and tear due to the ocean water in the wind. It was starting to look very dull and even made the condo look older than it was. By providing some enhancements to the siding, we were able to bring this Myrtle Beach condo back to life! Look at the difference in the photos…night and day!

Finding the right door for your home is also another way to boost curb appeal. A new front door instantly enhances your home’s appearance, and can greatly increase resale value! Upgrading the front door of a house can increase the perceived value of a home by almost $10,000. Crazy, right? Think about it. If you go to look at a new home on the market that has a less than stellar front door (one of the first things you see), won’t you question the rest of the house before even looking inside? Contract Exteriors also has the ability to install unique knobs and handles to give you a custom look, as well as a variety of colors for your door (as long as your HOA allows it). Adding decorative glass, transom windows, and sidelights are all great options for refreshing the look of your door.

Living in the Carolinas, it’s pretty common to experience a faulty roof at one point or another. If you have loose or missing shingles, perhaps it’s time to consider a roof replacement. The roof can account for 40% of a home’s look from the curb. Think about that. FORTY PERCENT! Almost half. By improving the look of your roof, your curb appeal skyrockets. We always tear off the old roof before installing a new one so that we can see each and every defect that you old roof had. It’s best to start from scratch to get a beautiful finished product.
