Everyone wants to live in that one house on the block where people drive by and stare at with envy in their eyes. Whether it’s for your own personal pleasure, or if you’re interested in selling, many homeowners want a home that just looks good. Fortunately for you, there are ways in which you can boost the curb appeal of your home.

Front Door
The first thing you see when you walk up to a house is usually the front door. If this piece gives you the first impression of the house, wouldn’t you want to give the best one possible? Of course you would — so start by installing a brand new front door. Pick a color that compliments the colors of your siding, roofing, and landscape choices. You want the look of the door to flow with the rest of the house, but to also be eye-catching.

Siding
Old, broken and warped siding can make your home look older than it actually is. For the most cost effective siding option, consider installing vinyl siding. Not only is this option light on your wallet, but it is also extremely durable, waterproof, and one of the easiest materials to install. If that’s not enough to convince you, maybe the wide array of color options that are available will. Installing new siding is like giving your house the overdue facelift that it needs.

Roof
A roof with broken or missing shingles, moss and lichen, or one that sags will make your home less appealing. A brand new roof, no matter the materials used, will instantly boost your home’s curb appeal and it will also increase the resale value. You can choose from a variety of materials like metal, slate, asphalt, etc. with each one having its own set of advantages. Whichever one you pick will work best if you take the time to match it with the siding and front door.

Putting in the effort to boost your home’s curb appeal will help give you the title of having the best house on the block. When you decide to upgrade your home’s exterior, contact the expert installers at Preferred Exterior.
