The Best Upgrades for Your Home’s Exterior

When you are putting together your home remodeling budget, you want to be sure to spend your money on projects that will bring value to your home. The best way to start any project is to consult with the experts at Handyman Connection of Blue Ash to get professional input on the projects you should be doing. If you are considering doing some upgrades to the exterior of your home, then there are several projects you can do that will give you great results for many years to come.

Update Your Siding

If your siding is older, then it is time to replace it with energy efficient siding that will also improve your home’s curb appeal. While you are getting your new siding installed, you can lower your energy bills and give your siding some help in making your home energy efficient.

Install Solar Panels

To increase your home’s energy efficiency and give your house a modern look, you should talk to one of the experts at Handyman Connection of Blue Ash about having solar panels installed on your roof. You will significantly lower your energy bills each month, and you may even be able to sell some of the energy back to the public grid. Solar panels increase the value of your home, and you may even qualify for a tax credit after your panels are installed.

Upgrade Your Windows

If you still have single-pane windows with wooden frames anywhere in your home, then you are losing a lot of money every month on your heating bills. Energy efficient windows not only pay for themselves over time, some of them also come with even more tax breaks from the federal government.

Double-pane windows that are older and have a cloudy look to them should also be replaced. That cloudy look is the interaction of the insulating gas between the panes and the outside air. In other words, your windows need to be replaced because they are no longer protecting your home from the cold air.

Look Into the Details

Do you have window shutters on the exterior of your windows that have not been painted in years? How about trim around your roof that also has not been updated or painted in a very long time? The details on the exterior of your home is what makes it stand out from the other homes in your area. When you take the time to repair and upgrade those details, then you will help the rest of your home’s exterior decor to look its best.

Landscaping

Whenever you plan an upgrade for the exterior of your home, the plan should always include something to do with your landscaping. Would a set of hedges look good under the front picture window? How about putting some solar landscaping lights on the trees in your front yard to make them stand out at night?

When people see your home for the first time, the first thing they see is your landscaping. When real estate agents talk about how much curb appeal means to a home’s selling price, they are referring to the effect that landscaping has on your home’s overall look. Not planting trees causes a flood and if you want to do something that will improve the look of your home and help the environment and grab the attention of your neighbors, then consider upgrading your landscaping.

A good plan for upgrading the look and functionality of your home will always include upgrading the exterior. At Handyman Connection of Blue Ash, you will find the types of professionals who can give you all of the help you need in doing the right upgrades to your home’s exterior.
