Exterior home renovations were seriously needed for this Cape Code style home. The bones were good, but the weather and mold had taken its toll. The shutters were faded, the landscaping was nonexistent and the porch was falling down. Moreover, the contractor grade windows were leaking and the front door did not draw your eye or feel inviting. The curb appeal just wasn’t there.
NuHome met with the homeowners and made recommendations on updating the face of this home (curb appeal). The list of items used to transform this potential beauty included new vinyl siding from Exterior Portfolio. The homeowner’s selected Crane insulated siding in a Dutch Lap style. With maintenance free shutters by Mid-America, the dark shutter color compliments the lighter front door with oval glass. The new front door is the eye of the home, it is very welcoming and allows in natural light.
White seamless gutters compliment the white trim of this home for a clean crisp look. To combat the energy loss from leaking builder grade windows, the homeowner also had NuHome install energy efficient replacement windows. The Alside custom fit, dual-pane insulated glass window solutions are maintenance free. As an added feature, these Alside Mezzo® double hung windows with grids tilt in for easy cleaning.
We also rebuilt the front porch with a natural wood finish and had some needed landscaping and mulching done. Landscaping makes a big difference in exterior curb appeal. The simple patio block path to the front door is clear and adds to this homes charm.
Every homeowner wants curb appeal and this home now has it. The homeowner will enjoy this exterior home makeover for many years to come. Interested in scheduling an exterior makeover for your home? Contact NuHome at 703-934-4020.
