Do you feel like your home has been through the wringer this winter in Northern Virginia? With tons of rain and crazy winds, you’re not alone. Spring is a perfect time for a facelift for your home. Upgrading your exterior can boost curb appeal while improving energy efficiency and home security. Exterior upgrades can also add significant resale value. According to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, upgrading your front door, windows and siding is among the exterior renovations that add the most value to your home. DryHome Roofing & Siding can handle everything on your home’s exterior, making it so much easier to work with just one company for everything from your roof to your doors.
What Are the Best Exterior Upgrades for My Home?
Replace Your Front Door
Experts say replacing your front door can bring a return on investment of $7000 or $8000 at resale, bringing significant bang for your buck. A high-quality fiberglass door is one of those minor improvements that can have a major impact. It’s a fabulous refresh with a relatively modest price tag. Even if you’re not thinking of selling, a new front door improves the look and feel of your home. A new front door made from 21st Century materials also enhances security and durability.
Install New Shutters
New shutters offer both curb appeal and functionality. Functional shutters help control natural light and airflow in your home. They also provide security benefits, allowing you to restrict the view into your home. Shutters also add a timeless, elegant look to your home’s facade, adding a pop of color or contrast to your home’s exterior. Quality shutters not only boost resale value, but they also make your exterior more attractive and inviting.
Replacement Window For Your Home
Replacing windows can be pricey. However, it’s a worthwhile investment in resale value and your own well-being in your home. Broken, sticky or drafty windows are a liability if you’re considering listing your home. Aging windows can also cause energy bills to spike. Today’s maintenance-free, high-performance vinyl windows offer curb appeal and energy efficiency. Low E and Argon gas-filled windows bring significant energy savings and may help you qualify for tax credits. DryHome’s premium vinyl and wood windows are available in various styles and sizes, including elegant double-hung windows, spacious bay, bow and picture window combinations, expansive sliders, and unique shapes. You can get the gorgeous look you want while you reap the benefits of energy efficiency and reducing sun damage in your home.
Home Siding Replacement
Replacing worn or damaged siding is like a facelift for your home. 21st Century vinyl siding offers curb appeal, durability and weather resistance. Today’s colors, accessories and trim options mean we can update and add character to every home, staying true to your home’s design while adding flair and remaining consistent with your neighborhood’s aesthetic. DryHome works with top suppliers, including vinyl siding by CertainTeed, Crane and Variform and high-quality fiber cement siding by CertainTeed and James Hardie.
New Gutter Installation
When we think about home improvements, new gutters are not always top of mind. However, replacing inefficient or damaged gutters is one of the most vital steps to improve and protect your home’s exterior. We choose Alaris gutters because they are designed to stay in place and perform in all climates and weather conditions. They’re highly resistant to scuffing and scraping, and their color matching is the best around.
