Your home is your refuge. Your safe place.
It’s where you make memories with family and spend quality time with your friends. You want a home that you’re excited to invite people over so you can show it off. Every aspect of your home – inside and out – should meet your needs and wants, while also providing value.
Maybe the inside suits your needs and wants right now, but what about the outside? Is it a home you’re happy to see when you pull into the driveway? Or are you constantly thinking of ways you’d love to change it?
Whether you are looking to sell your home soon or you’re there to stay, an exterior remodel can take your home from ordinary to extraordinary in both appearance and functionality.
WHY REMODEL YOUR HOME?
Whether you’re considering a new roof, a new skylight, or a new deck, it’s important to understand the possible return on investment. Because remodeling your home is an investment that can increase the value and sale potential.
It can also turn your house into your dream home or make it feel fresh and clean. Maybe the inside is perfect, but the outside doesn’t reflect that.
The outside of your home is a chance to make a statement. Is that statement ”welcome to our beautiful home” or is it ”please don’t look too closely at the siding?”
- Protect your investment
Your home is probably the most significant investment you’ll ever make. The best way to protect and maximize its value is to maintain it. Weather, water, pests, and so many other factors can affect the exterior of your home.
But if you repair them as soon as you notice them, you’ll likely avoid the need for more expensive and time-consuming repairs down the road.
Choosing high-quality materials that cost a little more upfront, rather than more money down the line, is one of the smartest ways you can protect your home investment.
- Curb appeal
Curb appeal is one of the reasons buyers will or won’t consider bidding on a home, so it can be a vital aspect of making your house ready to sell.
But if you’re not selling any time soon, improving the curb appeal will just make coming home more of a joyful experience.
- Energy improvements
If you have an older home, your energy bills are probably higher than necessary. Take advantage of cost-saving technologies and materials with an exterior remodel. The new materials are more durable and efficient. They’ll make your home more comfortable and lower your utility costs.
WHAT ARE MY EXTERIOR REMODEL OPTIONS?
The possibilities are endless when you work with a full-service contracting company like Solomon Contracting. From design to completion of the project, we’ll work with you to make your vision a reality.
Skylights perfect for visually expanding areas such as hallways, stairwells, and those other dark spaces you inevitably have in your home that don’t get any natural light. A skylight can completely transform a dull and dim space with a sky view full of light.
Probably every summer you’ve thought to yourself, ”wouldn’t it be nice if there were a deck out here,” and every summer you put off adding one.
A beautiful deck is a huge selling point and adds immense value to your home. They are some of the best places in your home to make memories with loved ones. Spend a beautiful day outside, watching the kids run around while you grill something delicious.
Windows and Doors
Old or damaged windows can make your home drafty, leading to costly utility bills and an uncomfortable house. If you added up all of the little cracks in your windows or how much air gets in from the doors, you’d have the equivalent of a giant hole in the side of your house.
Installing new windows or repairing windows you already have is an investment that will improve your finances in the long run while keeping your family warm and dry. Good windows also increase the value of your home if you want to sell it.
Replacing doors – especially the front and back doors – can enhance your home’s appearance while also improving functionality and safety. Make it easier for you to enter your home and more difficult for unwanted intruders to get in.
Siding and Soffits and Fascia
One of the best ways to improve the value of your home is to invest in new, high-quality siding. Siding eliminates the need for frequent painting and repainting of your home’s exterior, and it also protects your home from the wear and tear wood, brick, and stone are susceptible to, like pests, hail damage, and wood rot.
Gutter systems need to be installed properly in order to prevent damage to your home and the surrounding landscape. Redirect water away from your home so you don’t have to worry about flooding or other water damage.
Painting your home can be a pain – especially if you attempt to do it yourself – but if you leave it to the experienced professionals at Solmon Contracting, it can be a relatively painless process that is worth it in the long run.
A good paint job can repel moisture, limit wood rot, and resist pest damage. But it can also put a fresh face on it without having to do an entire remodel. You’ll increase the attractiveness of your home and increase the resale value through curb appeal.
Masonry and Tuckpointing
Even though brick structures are made to be robust and resilient, they aren’t entirely immune to regular wear and tear. In time, you’ll find cracks or missing bricks. You’re going to need a dependable contractor who can repair your brick to its former glory.
Especially in a state like Missouri with ever-changing weather patterns and temperature shifts, you’re going to find some issues around your home’s brick elements. If you see any sign of mortar damage or fall out, you should invest in tuckpointing services to mend them. You’ll make the structure last longer.
Chimney Chase Covers
A chimney chase cover is the metal shield that covers the top of your chimney to prevent rain, melting snow, or anything else from entering your home through the chimney. Galvanized chimney chase covers last about 7-9 years, but then they start to rust and allow leaks.
Solomon Contracting provides custom-made stainless steel chimney chase covers that won’t rust and are virtually maintenance free.
