The exterior of your home says a lot about you. Visitors often gain a first impression about you by simply looking at the outside of your house. They check out the exterior, size it up and form a quick opinion.  All of these factors play into what people think about your living space.  It typically takes months or years to make your home interior exactly how you’d like it. There are plenty of things you can do to achieve your desired look, and one of our favorites is installing new windows.


The areas you should focus on when updating your home include the windows, exterior doors, siding and the landscaping. These are the four areas of focus you want to spend a fair amount of time on so that you can turn your home’s exterior from “bleh” to “beautiful.”


Update the Windows


Updating your Jacksonville windows is the first step toward improving the appearance of your house. Your windows affect the interior and exterior look of your home, so making sure they’re clean and updated should be a priority. When the paint begins chipping and the glass has the cracks, it’ll be the first thing your guests notice. Replacing any outdated windows in your home is one of the simplest ways to give your home a needed facelift.


Replace Exterior Doors


Exterior doors are another area of your home that deserves your attention. The front door of your home is often your guest’s first impression, so it’s important to have an attractive, functioning door to greet your visitors. When you work with the American Window Products team to replace your front door, we’ll walk you through all of your options and help you reach a decision that makes the most sense for you and your family.


Give the Siding some TLC


The siding of your home is another major exterior asset you either have to update or properly maintain. If you have old wooden or fiberglass siding, you may want to think about having the siding painted. Consider doing an upgrade to vinyl siding or new wooden siding. Either way, you’ll greatly improve the exterior appearance of your house by taking one of these steps.


Pay Attention to the Landscaping


Professional landscaping goes a long way when boosting the curb appeal of your home. Designing and planning for your desired landscaping often takes a professional, and we can assure you it’ll be money well spent. The right flowers, grass and greenery can completely transform the appearance of your house.


There are so many solutions at your disposal for bringing your home from “bleh” to “beautiful.” Taking care of your home won’t just improve curb appeal, it’ll do a great job of increasing property value. Placing a focus on the windows and exterior doors will improve energy efficiency, security and comfort.
