How to Boost Your Home's Value and Curb Appeal

Posted on December 20, 2019

Quad Cities Home Remodeling

Thinking about selling your home in the foreseeable future? Whether you plan to list it in the next few months or next few years, you need to start thinking about your home value and curb appeal. In some cases, boosting your curb appeal may be as simple as lawn care and a few flowerbeds. In other cases, you might need to make some serious home updates in order to get the competitive edge you need for your home. So what helps?

Replacement Siding

In terms of curb appeal, your siding is one of the things people will first notice about your home. If your siding looks fresh and vibrant, it will draw the eye in a pleasing way and make them eager to check out the rest of the house. If your siding looks old and faded, it will give off the impression that the rest of the house is old and faded.

When it comes to replacement siding, Mainstream Home Improvements offers options. We have Charter Oak composite siding that offers the natural look of wood with much less maintenance. You'll never have to paint this siding, and it will withstand the elements beautifully. We also offer Prodigy insulated siding, which can boost the energy efficiency of your home as well as the curb appeal.

Replacement Windows

Replacement windows, too, can help to boost the energy efficiency of your home, thereby boosting your home value. They allow more light into your home, so you won't have to rely as much on artificial lighting during the day. Good replacement windows also help to prevent heat loss, so your home heating won't have to work twice as hard in order to keep your home comfortable. Replacement windows can also add aesthetic appeal, especially with so many styles and decorative options available to you.

Replacement Roofing

What kind of shape is your roof in? This will make a difference when it comes to your curb appeal and home value, as well. A roof with missing shingles or dark, discolored splotches are likely to drive homeowners away from your home for fear of rot or leaks. Our roofs are not only aesthetically pleasing but offer a 6-foot ice and water shield to protect the roof from the winter elements. We also offer gutter covers so that your roof gutters can protect your roof from water damage without the need to clean them regularly.

It's time to get your home in shape so that prospective buyers can look at it with fresh but intrigued eyes. Need help with your home improvement projects to boost your home's value and curb appeal? Contact Mainstream Home Improvements today for more information or a free estimate.
