Sprucing Up the Exterior of Your Home with Your Denver Roofing Company


June 21, 2017

Whether you are looking to move and want to entice prospective homebuyers, or are trying to find some ways to enhance the quality of your home’s exterior, you have many options! Late spring is also the perfect time to work with your local Denver roofing company on making any or all changes you would like to make. Learn how you can enhance your house’s curb appeal through new siding, windows, roofing, and fencing.  

Siding and Windows

Old siding with worn and cracking windows means it is time to make some upgrades! While you will enjoy the aesthetic benefits of upgraded siding and windows, you will also enjoy the energy savings each month on your electric bill—making it a great investment. Plus, when siding is cracked or windows aren’t sealed, not only is air coming in and out running up that utility bill, but water can also seep inside as well. When water infiltrates the inside of a home, the chances for mold to grow. Not only does mold pose as a health hazard, but can also become a costly fix to repair. Going back to aesthetics, you will dramatically change the exterior of your home by updating your siding and/or windows. You can work with your roofer to find premier go-to options that will both help your budget and look great on the street. New to the world of siding? Don’t fret.

Roofing

Another major change you can make to your home for both appearance and efficiency is your roof. On average, a roof can last up to 20 years before needing replaced. If your home is nearing the 15 to 20-year mark, it is time to consider replacement for safety reasons. Depending on the age or any damage to it, insurance may even cover some or all f the work. Even if it is not that old, it is important to routinely inspect your roof for damage. Look for things like cracked or missing shingles and flashing that is coming a part. When there are issues with the roof, it can lead to serious issues to the foundation of the home, which is another costly fix. For aesthetic purposes, replacing a roof on its own, or paired with new siding and windows, also can make your home look like new. There are a variety of types of roofs, allowing you to work with a roofer to find the best option with your home’s upgrade project.

Fencing

Wondering what the icing on the cake is for a home exterior revamp project? Fencing. Whether you have a fence already that is in poor shape, or you are looking for a top way to make your house stand out, fending is a great option. Plus, if you have children or pets, it can help provide more opportunities to let them safely roam.  When upgrading your siding, it is a great time to add fencing so you can find a fence type that matches. There are a variety of fences, from your traditional white picket fence to sleek black steel. You can add a gate with a lock for added safety as well.
