Remember how excited you were when you pulled into your driveway years ago? You loved the way your home looked. Now, it feels tired and outdated and you aren’t thrilled about looking at it when you arrive home each night. It could use a little work. Okay, maybe a lot of work. If you are like most people, you put off doing exterior renovations because you recognize the amount of work that goes into new siding and roofing, decking and landscaping. But nobody said you had to do that work on your own. When you work with the professionals at Eakman Construction, we can design a plan that suits your budget, provides opportunities to update your home, and allows you to express some of your personality into the design. So what are you waiting for?
Make Your Money Matter
Taking on an exterior renovation project is a lot of work, that’s for sure. But it can also add a great deal of value to your property – not to mention your neighborhood. All it takes is for one homeowner to invest in their property to start raising the bar for the area. If your budget is limited, think about where you can make the most impact. You don’t need to worry about doing all of the work at once; although, that is the ideal situation, and we can work with you to try to fit everything into your budget. Siding is where you are going to get the most bang for your buck. It’s dramatic, obviously different, and provides protection and style for your home.
Windows are a Great Investment
If the siding on your home isn’t old or worn, you might consider adding new windows or decking as a way to spruce up the exterior of your home and showcase your home in a new way. New windows can make a dramatic difference both inside and outside of the home. If you find that your home looks dated, but can’t afford new siding, a few new windows, particularly in the front of the home, will create a new look right away. Plus, new windows are energy efficient and help keep your home warm during colder months, and cool during warmer months.
Decking Adds Character
Decking is also an affordable way to make your home look new again. With so many decking options to choose from, you can make a dramatic statement with a new deck. If your budget is tight, you might opt for traditional wood decking, which does require more maintenance, but with a little creative design and professional help, you can have a beautiful work of art on the front of your home. You’ll find that a new deck extends the indoor space and adds loads of curb appeal to your home.
If you are thinking about selling your home, every dollar you invest in a project that makes your home look more modern is a dollar you can expect to get back. Homebuyers are wary of homes that have run down decking, old windows, and broken siding because it sends a message that the home is not cared for. Be sure to invest some money in updating the exterior of your home if you are thinking about putting it on the market. And if you are not, invest in it for your own enjoyment and to make your arrival home from work enjoyable once again.
