Make Your Home the Envy of the Neighborhood

You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but you can judge a home by its exterior. Making your home the envy of the neighborhood starts with boosting its curb appeal.

From general maintenance to home upgrades, here are three ideas to refresh your home’s look:

Update Windows
Replacing your windows with beautifully designed products will give your home a great first impression, not to mention reduce your energy bills and increase your home’s value.

After a window replacement, taking care of your new window is just as important. Wash windows every few months so they always look as good as the day they were installed.

Avoid scratching the surface of the glass, or frame, by utilizing non-abrasive agents. Water and a soft cloth is usually all you need to clean windows thoroughly, but a mild cleaner may also be helpful.

Choose Sleek Siding
If you are looking to boost your home’s energy efficiency and attain a new look for your exterior, replacing your siding is a great investment that can achieve both of these goals. Just be sure you get a superior product to avoid maintenance down the line. For example, vinyl siding is an ideal product because of its low maintenance and longevity. No matter what color siding you opt for, you can make your entire home’s exterior pop by choosing a distinct trim color.

Use a complementary online design center, like the one on the Window World website, to help visualize color options for windows, siding and doors.

While there, check out their full-line of ENERGY STAR qualified replacement windows backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal. In addition to offering stylish siding, Window World also professionally installs the Prodigy Insulated Siding. Both moisture and impact-resistant, this system has the thickest EPS foam insulation on the market, helping you decrease energy consumption.

A Grand Entry
It is said that the front door is the focal point of your home’s curb appeal. When creating your entryway, customize a new front door with smaller side window panels or glass panels within the door itself. Look for an exterior remodeler that can custom design and install entry doors to match your exterior décor. If it’s not time for a door replacement, consider adding a splash of color to your exterior by painting or staining your existing door.

To love your home, you must give it some love. Making the necessary home upgrades and maintaining your home’s exterior is a surefire way to turn heads.
