A new year offers a fresh start, symbolically and sometimes practically. It’s a new tax year and a year full of new resolutions. The new year could be the perfect time to get started on some much-needed upgrades to your Naperville home. What you tackle depends on your home needs, from replacement windows to new siding. Here are a few popular options.
Compared to roof replacement or replacement siding, replacement windows are a relatively minor home upgrade, but they can make a big difference. Fresh new windows can boost your curb appeal in a subtle but distinct way. The most significant benefit of replacing windows is increased energy efficiency. Good replacement windows, like those made by Pella or Marvin, are durable enough to last years and resist air leakage and heat loss. This helps lower your energy bills and boost your home value.
Replacement Entry Doors
Like replacement windows, the benefits of new entry doors begin on the outside but go further than that. Entry doors are among the first footmarks your home makes. A brightly colored, sturdy entry door will draw the eye, while something old and faded will reflect poorly on the exterior of your home. Strong entry doors also help to insulate the home and prevent heat loss securely. Choosing steel or fiberglass doors, such as those from Pella, can also boost your home security so you can sleep more securely at night.
The most significant element of your home’s curb appeal is your siding. Your siding is essentially the skin of your home, and if your siding looks old and worn, your home is sure to as well. In addition, some older siding materials don’t stand up to weather elements as well as the newer products. At Valdicass, we offer several types of siding, from vinyl to James Hardie fiber cement and even stucco and stone or a combination of cladding materials. The right siding will transform your home’s exterior and protect it against the elements.
Patio doors may not be a replacement for your Naperville Village home. It may be a new addition entirely, but it’s one that you won’t regret. Patio doors can easily blend your indoor and outdoor space. You can choose hinged patio doors from Pella or sliding glass Marvin Integrity patio doors, offering extended outdoor views and more natural sunlight. Adding patio doors to your home is also an excellent way to boost your home’s value.
