There are few places in America that combine old and new the way Leesburg, VA does. This thriving town combines historic charm with an embrace of progress and a front row seat in the booming Northern Virginia technology sector. This is reflected in the town’s diverse housing stock–there is truly something for everyone and a wide range of restoration and home improvement needs.
Dating back to colonial times, with gorgeous homes more than 200 years old, downtown Leesburg is bustling with shopping, dining, small businesses and law and medical practices. But just a short drive away on the outskirts of town, technology businesses are moving in to take advantage of the town’s proximity to the Northern Virginia technology corridor. Microsoft recently bought several hundred acres in Leesburg, and Amazon’s new HQ2 will be located a short drive away in Northern Virginia.
Housing in Leesburg varies from historic fixer-uppers to lush gated communities to smaller homes dating from the mid to late 20th Century, and DryHome is Leesburg’s trusted roofing and siding contractor for houses big and small, old and new.
Adding Comfort and Energy Efficiency to Historic Homes in Leesburg
Leesburg boasts a wide radius of historic homes in the historic downtown. These gorgeous properties are a pleasure to see and offer the convenience of walking to restaurants, shopping, libraries and recreational facilities. But many of Leesburg’s historic homes can use a boost when it comes to roofing, ventilation and energy efficiency. If it’s time for a roof replacement in your historic home, DryHome has re-roofed homes for thousands of satisfied customers. We offer a range of materials and colors to mesh with your home’s historic charm and blend into the vibe of your historic block. We can take on any roof whether it’s flat or steep and are experts in structural repairs and storm damage repairs. We can also make your older home more energy efficient with ventilation system upgrades, including power attic fans.
Giving a Facelift to Your Starter Home in Leesburg
It can be hard to find a small home in Loudoun County, and bigger is better is often the rule of thumb for new housing. Leesburg offers a terrific selection of smaller, reasonably priced single family homes and townhouses built in the 1960s, 70s and 80s in charming, safe neighborhoods convenient to excellent schools, shopping and other amenities. These are quality-built homes with great locations, in many cases even walkable to the historic downtown. With their smaller sizes and convenient locations, these homes are perfect for young families or downsizing empty-nesters. However, in many cases, these 30-to-60 year old homes are in need of some TLC and structural repairs to keep them safe, weatherproof and meet the needs of today’s homeowners. Siding replacement in a fresh contemporary color to update your home’s look and make it more weatherproof and energy efficient can be the perfect place to start. Add door and window replacement with great looking, energy efficient new materials to the mix, and your starter home can meet your family’s needs for years to come.
Enjoying Leesburg’s Amenities
The small town warmth and sense of community are one of the main reasons families and young professionals are moving to Leesburg in droves. A few tweaks to your existing home can help you enjoy everything Leesburg has to offer at a new level. For example, Ida Lee Recreation Center is one of the crown jewels of the town, with its indoor and outdoor pools, fitness center, tennis facilities and outdoor parks and their amazing Ida Lee fireworks show every Independence Day. Ida Lee is surrounded by some of Leesburg’s best neighborhoods, with the historic downtown to the south and west and the family-friendly Exeter neighborhood to the east, offering spacious but moderately priced homes for a range of budgets and a true community feel. Some of our favorite ideas include adding a new energy efficient skylight or sun tunnel or adding a brand new long-lasting deck to enjoy outdoor activities with neighbors.
