Why do people get makeovers? It’s all about feeling confident in yourself. And it’s no different when it comes to your home. You want to be confident in its looks, too. Over time, however, your home will show signs of aging. It’s okay – your home’s exterior just needs a makeover! How, you ask? Read on for tips on how to do just that through Ferguson Roofing.
Update the Siding
Ready to replace old siding or update your home’s look? Ferguson Roofing recommends two siding options for your home – Vinyl and LP SmartSide. Vinyl siding is an affordable product that is the most widely-used option nationwide. It is easy to install and available in many colors and styles to complement any home. LP SmartSide is more durable with an upgraded look. An engineered wood, LP SmartSide comes in siding, trimming, paneling, soffit and fascia and a variety of textures, widths, and lengths.
Replace Soffit and Fascia
Are exposed nails protruding through your decking? Does your energy bill seem high? It may be time for you to replace your soffit and fascia. The fascia is the vertical board where the gutters attach. The soffit is the horizontal board running from the bottom edge of the fascia and butting up against the house. Soffit finishes the look of your home while helping air flow through your attic. The fascia board is typically wrapped in metal, which protects the board from the elements.
Install New Windows
Whether you’re installing new windows or replacing old ones, they are one of the most eye-catching pieces of your home. They are also depended on for their ability to perform. Basic functions include keeping out drafts, water, and the hot or cold. New windows can update your home’s look, increase your comfort, save you money, and reduce the amount of maintenance for you.
Check the Gutters
Is water negatively impacting your foundation or landscaping? If so, checking on your gutters is the first step. Some basic gutter inspection questions are:
- Are your gutters secured tight to the fascia?
- Do they have the proper pitch that promotes the flow of water to your downspouts?
- Are they big enough?
- Are leaves and vegetation causing a clog?
Whatever the case, Ferguson Roofing offers a free multi-point home inspection and assessment.
