Planning some home renovations this spring? Did your home experience some damage during a storm this winter? There are a few key areas to concentrate on during any repair or renovation that can not only make your home look better but function better as well. And, if you’re planning to sell in the near future, these are also key areas home buyers look at. The most essential parts of a home exterior are the roofing, siding, soffits, gutters and eaves. These create the backbone of the home and are the first things people notice when arriving and what most new homeowners don’t want to have to deal with replacing or repairing. At Eastern Roofing & Siding we specialize in Bloomington area home exteriors and are here to help your home look and function its best. Here are some things to consider when planning upcoming spring repairs and renovations.
For starters, there is no point in renovating other areas of the home if it isn’t protected by a functioning, well-maintained roof. A new roof can even make your home look great too! Or, include a new roof in your remodel to simply avoid leaks, mold and other costly repairs down the line. A typical roof usually last anywhere from 15 to 25 years. Unfortunately, factors such as storm damage, ice damming, and mold or moss growth can significantly shorten the life of any roof. If your roof has any signs of wear, it’ nay be a good idea to replace the roof. A trusted roofing company or home inspector can help you determine approximately how old or damaged your roof is if you aren’t quite sure.
Planning a remodel or addition? Skylight installation? These major remodeling projects for home exteriors involve changes to your roofline and require the installation of new roofing. When combined with new exterior siding or an exterior paint job, new roofing can really make an older home look brand new.
Next, your siding. Did you know that replacing siding has a high expected ROI? This makes it one of the most financially sound home renovation projects that you can invest in. With the equity added to your home, the actual cost of siding replacement is definitely worth it. Storms can really wreak havoc on your home’s siding. Between strong winds, damaging sleet and snow drifts, heavy rain and falling branches, a lot of houses sustain siding damage after a big storm. If you spot damage to your home’s siding after a big storm, be sure to give our home exteriors company a call.
How are your gutters? Gutters are an essential part of all home exteriors. Eastern Roofing & Siding can easily help with the installation of new pieces or entirely new gutters if deemed beyond repair. Standards in the world of gutters include those made of aluminum, copper and vinyl. You can even help avoid future leaf accumulation with features like seamless gutters and or leaf screens.
