Home improvement projects, from simple upgrades to meticulous replacements, make you appreciate your home more. Some of these take a couple of days to finish, but there are also those that only take a day.

Leading Andover roofing company Edmunds General Contracting lists the four home improvements that can enhance your home’s appearance, without burning a hole in your pocket.

#1. Replace Old Hardware

The entry door lockset, mailbox, house numbers, and a light fixture can all add style to your outdoor space. These provide the most interest when used collectively, rather than as mix-and-match pieces. If these parts are outdated or dingy, these may not provide the aesthetic value you expect. Replace worn hardware with oiled-bronze finishes if you own a traditional home and with brushed nickel for a contemporary one.

#2. Renew Your Siding

Regular upkeep of the exterior surface is the effective way of keeping your home looking its best. Give your home an exterior facelift by painting your siding or giving it a good cleaning.

If your siding starts showing visible signs of wear, such as cracking or rotting material, it can drag the entire look of your home down. Perhaps it is time for a replacement. Edmunds General Contracting offers high quality siding from James Hardie®. By installing new siding, you improve your home’s value and beauty and save on heating, cooling, and maintenance costs.

#3. Give Your Windows an Overhaul

Give your home’s exterior a welcoming layer of beauty by adding shutters or accent trim. You can also consider installing new windows, particularly if your old ones are starting to make the air in the room drafty or the temperature, unstable. Our new windows allow you to control light and ventilation, and provide additional security. Made of insulated frames and low E-glass, these enhance the comfort in your home while adding to its curb appeal.

#4. Revamp Your Roof

Your roof may look fine, but it doesn’t mean you can be complacent. Moldy spots or that tiny watermark on the ceiling can indicate underlying problems. Make sure your roofing is in good condition with help of the Lawrence roofing expert, Edmunds General Contracting.

We will inspect every part of your roof, and recommend the necessary repairs. If the damage has become too extensive for a repair and a replacement is your best option, we will let you know immediately. We will be glad to help you maintain the beauty and functionality of your home.
