Impress Your Leawood Neighbors with Exterior Window & Door Upgrades
If you aren’t thinking about how to boost your home’s curb appeal, it’s probably time you should. Curb appeal is something homeowners fret over when planning to sell their home. It’s a necessary part of staging. In order for homebuyers to look at the inside of your home, they need to be impressed with the outside of your home first. However, that doesn’t mean that curb appeal is irrelevant to those who plan to live in their home for years and years.
Some homeowner associations or neighborhood associations have standards and rules about curb appeal regarding your lawn and home garden. Even if you’re not subject to these rules, a neat, fresh curb appeal is a welcome for guests and new neighbors alike. And even if you don’t plan to move now, it never hurts to add to your home value now in order to stay competitive on the housing market.
Where do you start? Well, windows and doors are the obvious choice. These are often the first features people notice about your home from the outside. Windows serve as the eyes of your home. The entry door serves as the mouth. If your windows and doors look fresh, it goes a long way to help the rest of your house look good.
Old windows with faded or peeling window frames or grimy glass can give off exactly the impression you don’t want your guests and neighbors to have of your home. However, you also don’t want to choose windows that look great but require constant maintenance to keep them that way. That’s why vinyl and fiberglass windows are so popular. These windows have sleek looks and color that never needs to be repainted. They’re also low maintenance.
However, when choosing windows that look good, you also want windows that will look good for years. When it comes to durability, fiberglass windows — like the ones we carry from Marvin — are hard to beat. Fiberglass windows are on the rise lately as homeowners realize they have everything: stunning looks, energy efficiency, and tough durability. Your neighbors and guests will be wowed by your fiberglass windows, and you’ll love coming home to them.
Your home’s entry door also makes a statement that reflects on the rest of the home. It can help your home look classic and elegant, or crisp and modern. Your entry door is what welcomes outsiders into your home, so you want to make sure it gives off the right impression. Sometimes this comes down to color and style options. Bold, fresh color makes your home stand out from the crowd, and so do stately designs.
Your entry door might welcome outsiders into your home, but you also want to make sure these are only the outsiders you invite into your home. Security is of the utmost importance when it comes to entry doors, and fiberglass and steel doors, like the doors offered by ProVia, are some of the toughest on the market. They can offer your home steadfast security, and they look amazing. These doors are sure to boost your home value and will be an attractive feature for those looking for a new home.
Windows and doors are, all things considered, relatively small changes to your home’s appearance and curb appeal. However, you’d be surprised by the difference new windows and doors can make. If you’re not in a position to have new siding installed, changing your windows and doors can certainly help you boost your curb appeal in the interim.
