We’re more apt to notice signs of aging inside our home rather than outside. The dishwasher may stop working and your walls may have some dents and dings. Not to mention that the colors are dated. Have you looked at your home’s exterior the same way? You can make changes to your home’s exterior and reap many of the same benefits you get when you upgrade your dishwasher to an ENERGY STAR appliance or repaint a room if you contact an exterior remodeling company.
One of the reasons homeowners don’t always look at the exterior of their home and call a exterior remodeling company is because of the cost. However, there the benefits that come with exterior upgrades include curb appeal, pride in your home, and energy savings. You may even prevent damage to your home’s structure by upgrading your siding, roofing, windows, or gutters.
Step Back and Look at Your Home
We’re often in such a hurry we don’t really see our home’s exterior. When you stand at the street and look at your home, ask yourself these questions:
- Is my siding cracked, bowed, or coming away from my home?
- Are my gutters sagging or rusting?
- Does my roof have staining, streaking, or missing shingles?
- Would my windows benefit from new panes, a paint job, or window replacement?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should contact an exterior remodeling company. All are signs that your home could be suffering from more than just cosmetic issues.
What Damage Can These Signs Do?
Water damage and energy loss are both common results of the problems above. When water gets under your shingles or siding, water damage occurs. Mold and mildew can grow leading to various issues. Sagging and rusty gutter leak which may lead to water in your crawl space or basement. Windows that are not sound will allow for energy loss and can lead to water damage.
