If you want to make a dramatic change to the look of your home, replacing your roof shingles is a fantastic way to give your house an upgrade. Whether you choose traditional asphalt shingles or choose some of the innovative new roofing products that are on the market right now, changing the color of your roof will make your house look new. If you have noticed that your shingles have dark green algae streaks or if you have seen a few that are curling or coming lose it’s the perfect time to give your home a style upgrade with new shingles.
Another way to give your home’s curb appeal a boost is to put new siding on your home. Thanks to modern manufacturing there are some gorgeous new siding options that you can choose from. Fiber cement siding is an environmentally friendly building material that will give your home the look of traditional wood. But carbon fiber siding is extremely durable and will last for decades with very low maintenance. It’s also resistant to peeling, cracking and fading. And it resists common pests too. Another popular new siding option is steel log siding which will give your home the warmth and charm of a cozy cabin but without the hassle and upkeep associated with wood homes.
Adding a deck to your home, or renovating your existing deck, is a very affordable way to give your home better curb appeal. With new materials available like modified wood you can get a professionally designed deck that looks fantastic and is incredibly durable. Modified wood decking shows off the beauty of natural wood but can be easily cleaned with just a garden hose. A multiple tier deck or enlarged deck big enough to host the entire family will really take your home to the next level.
