With the demands of career and family, as well as those little unexpected things that come up, home maintenance tasks often get pushed aside. How can Cincinnati homeowners handle this challenge while still successfully maintaining their homes? Our remodeling experts would like to show you how to prioritize your life while saving money and time with these few low-maintenance renovations for your home.
Homeowners are busy folks who often spend their spare time tending to yard work, general repairs and deck renovations. If you’re one of these busy homeowners, wouldn’t it be great to find a way to lighten those tasks so you can sit back, relax and actually enjoy your property? We have a solution: update your deck with low-maintenance materials.
Not only can a carefree deck significantly reduce your workload, but it will also add beauty and value to your home. Composite decking, for example, is easy to care for and comes in many attractive styles and colors to blend in with your home and surroundings. Moreover, because it’s non-porous, it resists stains and ground-in dirt, and has no exposed hardware that tends to corrode or rust. Equally important is the fact that composite decking doesn’t require you to do any staining, painting or sealing. All you need to do is occasionally clean it with a garden hose.
The many benefits of vinyl siding
Are you burdened with painting your home’s exterior every five or ten years? Whether you have a large house or not, painting can be a monumental task involving cleaning, scraping and priming; and one that can make you feel old rather quickly. For these reasons, have you considered installing vinyl siding on your home? Besides the low-maintenance appeal, vinyl siding has outstanding curb appeal, is very resilient and is readily available in a plethora of gorgeous styles and shades.
Were you also aware that insulated vinyl siding can save you money on your heating and cooling expenses? With so many impressive benefits of vinyl siding, you can say goodbye to your time-consuming and backbreaking painting chores and enjoy a beautiful, new-looking home that will stay that way for years to come.
Replace your carpeting with flooring
For busy homeowners, keeping your home’s carpeting clean can be a serious challenge. Pets, children and dirty shoes all contribute to a dingy-looking carpet in no time. Consider lightening your load and replacing your carpeting with a durable, low-maintenance floor. With the many varieties of flooring available on the market today, you should have no trouble finding the perfect one to match your lifestyle and décor. What are some of those styles?
Let’s start with wood, stone and tile flooring. Although these materials can be expensive; they are all easy to care for and will give you years of use. To get the greatest results from wood flooring, however, make sure it is professionally installed and finished. Additionally, stone and tile flooring must be sealed for best results. If you’re looking for a high-quality flooring that’s also affordable, laminate flooring may be right for you. Durable and versatile, laminate is available in many styles suitable for any room and is extremely fuss free.
