Exterior Renovation: The Basics

 

We’ve all heard the phrase “it’s what’s on the inside that counts,” and we all know that when it comes to human beings this is undeniably true. But what about when it comes to houses? Is it really only what’s on the inside that counts? We don’t think so, and we’re pretty sure most of you will agree. Yes, ultimately having a comfortable, beautiful bedroom is more important than having a beautiful roof (you don’t actually live on your roof, after all), but a successful exterior renovation of your home shouldn’t just be about looks.

 

Not only does the exterior of your home act as the first impression to anyone passing by, it also plays an extremely important role in protecting and preserving the interior of your home. As experts on water damage restoration, we know that a leaky exterior can make even the most visually stunning home incredibly unappealing for anyone who actually has to live within it. We’ve fixed countless roofs, replaced hundreds of doors and windows, and torn up more damaged floors than you can imagine; if there’s one thing we’ve learned it’s that even the most attractive exterior isn’t worth a whole lot if it does nothing to protect the home inside.

 

There are many different factors to consider when taking on an exterior renovation project. You have to choose the right siding, think about the perfect roof, decide whether to replace or refurbish your windows and doors; the list goes on and on. Though it certainly seems overwhelming right now, don’t let your apprehension or anxiety put a permanent halt on renovation plans. There are tons of great resources online to explore that will give you more specific details on all the different options out there.
