Exterior Remodeling Tips


Throughout this site we are here to help you make the most of your home remodels. Whether you are doing it yourself or hiring a contractor the information on this site will help you create a better home at the end of the day. Below we will discuss some exterior remodeling tips that can help you get the curb appeal of your home looking the best on the block.

Exterior Paint color – Think about the paint color of your home as it can be a benefit or distraction to the surrounding neighbors. Depending on your style you can go with a earth tone (beige, brown, light orange, etc.), basic colors (white, grey, light yellow, etc.) or with loud colors (red, purple, black, etc.). No matter the color it will set the tone for how people perceive your home. If you use a neutral color people will view you as safe, conservative, and professional. If you use louder colors then you will most likely be viewed as a risk taker, confident, and over the top.

Siding Types – There are a number of different siding styles to choose from and the type you choose can determine the curb appeal you have. The top six most popular siding types are:

  • Brick
  • Fiber-Cement
  • Stone-Veneer
  • Stucco
  • Vinyl
  • Wood

Each of these types have their pros and cons but can add a good look to your home if done correctly. So make sure you follow the steps right or hire a siding contractor to make your home look its best.

Landscaping – Landscaping is the one exterior element that most people look at first when they come to or pass a person’s home. Like the featured image we have on this page with a bridge over a creek and pristine landscaping in the background, this landscape will attract any visitor. Landscaping is an element you can not leave out of your home exterior remodeling process and the best way to accomplish this if you are not experienced is to hire a landscaping company. One of the companies on our trade list that we have heard a lot of good things about is Nashua Tree Service.
