Ideas for improving your home’s exterior

Posted 24 May 2017 by Team Hudson

Every home could use a pick-me-up now and again, and it’s never too late to return a home to its former beauty. Here are a few tried-and-true exterior remodeling options that can help any home look its best.

New siding: Is it time to replace that old aluminum or vinyl siding with something that looks a bit more natural? Or is the old wood siding so worn that the boards are warped and nails are popping? Few things like fresh siding can restore the beauty of a home — and add to its longevity. Worn siding can very quickly lead to problems with water damage and pest infiltration.

New windows: Not only are updated vinyl windows beautiful, they’re also much more energy-efficient than the wood or aluminum windows they typically replace. New double-paned windows can add decades of energy efficiency to a home. Energy savings can be as high as 50 percent!

P1060467New doors: It’s incredible the facelift that something as simple as a new front door can provide. A fun, colorful door can add character to an otherwise plain facade, or a timeliness wood door can better match a home’s Craftsman character. There are many ways to be creative with doors, too. A set of French doors to replace the old sliding door can add loads of character, for example. And adding a new door to open access — a set of French doors leading to the side yard, for example, inst  ead of that picture window — can improve the way a house flows.

New porch: What often happens in the Pacific Northwest is that, over the years, porch wood can rot and become spongy. Often, this happens without the homeowner even noticing — the change happens slowly, and the homeowner doesn’t spot the incremental changes. But taking a close look at that aging front porch might reveal that it’s time to replace it with something new and beautiful — for the sake of both looks and safety. A composite material such as Trex can provide a beautiful, long-lasting look that doesn’t even need to be painted or stained. Subtle changes to the roofline over a front porch can also add a ton of curb appeal.

A new deck: Consider the possibilities a deck could provide: evening barbecues with friends, relaxing in the sun while the kids frolic in the yard, and a hot cup of morning coffee on a crisp Pacific Northwest morning. Sounds amazing, right? Building a new deck or expanding an existing one just might be the best idea you’ve had in a long time.
