How to Refresh Your Home’s Exterior in the New Year on a Budget

Feeling good about your Overland Park home again doesn’t have to break the bank.

The new year is the perfect time to invest in home exterior upgrades that can change your perspective of your home, as well as boost your curb appeal and even add to home value. However, if you have a tight budget, the idea of making upgrades or refreshing your home in any way can seem daunting. Fortunately, contractors in Overland Park know that not all homeowners have limitless funds, and there are ways to save money and achieve the goals you want for your home.

Make Small Upgrades

Maybe you can’t afford new siding this year or upgrading the entire exterior of your home. However, you can opt for small upgrades that make a big difference. One option is new doors. Doors make a big impression from the exterior of your home, and they help to secure and insulate it as well. The right entry or patio doors may even help you save money on your energy bills, so you earn some of the cost of the doors and the installation back in the process. Replacement windows are also a relatively small change but can boost your home’s curb appeal and energy efficiency.

Combine Projects

So, what if you need a little more than just a new door or a few new windows? What if you need multiple upgrades to your home’s exterior, but you’re worried about the budget? If that’s the case, consider having the same contractor for each project and trying to have them done at roughly the same time. If the crew is already out for one project, it will be less billable time than having to send them out for each project separately. Additionally, since these home upgrades often lead to a more energy efficient home, you can start to enjoy those lower energy bills immediately, rather than little by little.

Apply For Financing

A tight budget is not an uncommon problem today, which is why so many contractors serving Overland Park offer financing. With financing, you can apply for a way to have the work done now and make payments in a small, manageable fashion that works best for you. However, not all financing plans are the same. At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we’re proud of our financing plans, including no interest and no payments for 12 months or reduced interest rate for the first 84 months. Find the plan that works best for you and apply.
