Fresh, New Exterior

One of the best ways to spruce up your curb appeal is to change the exterior of the house. This may sound a lot challenging than it is but there are several simple ways to do it. One way to do this is to get a new paint job. You don’t have to think outside of the box too much with this one, even a fresh coat of the color you had before works!

Another way is by replacing old vinyl siding. Over the years, vinyl siding begins to break down. In most cases, it is dingy and losing its color. This commonly happens quicker in flat, dry places. In the worst case, your siding has lost its coating and dried out. Dry vinyl siding will crack and break off if left unattended. Poor vinyl siding can result in higher energy bills so consider the life of your siding as a factor if this occurs.

How do I Know if I Should Replace my Siding?  

  • It's Cracked or Loose
  • It's Faded or Peeling
  • It's Rotting or Warping
  • It Has Holes In It
  • It Has Growth or Mildew on It
  • Your Energy Bill Has Increased

Redo the Deck

The deck is definitely the place to host, but how in the world, may I ask, could you stand to have some friends over to your bare, unfinished deck? Some benefits of staining your deck are smoothness that reduces splintering, preserving the health of the wood, and preventing rot that can cause weak spots and injury. These things are definitely necessary for dry Colorado weather.

Replacing banisters is another way to spruce up your deck. Today there are many styles of banisters to choose from, like winding, natural birch branch or mini canoe paddles. Our experts at LIME Painting can review your banisters to ensure that first and foremost their stability is not compromised in any way. After that review is done, the creative, design possibilities are endless.

Swap the Front Door Out

This next suggestion may not seem like something that changes much but swapping your front door out can really spice up a bleak visage. Since 2008, manufacturers have started lines of energy-efficient doors with added benefits and there are many options. Your common door has a steel skin with a polyurethane foam insulation but some older models can be solid wood with metal weather-stripping.

Whether it be, painting the door or changing the whole style out, it is super easy to find the most efficient. The National Fenestration Rating Council, or NFRC, has online published guides to help homeowners decide which type of door is most energy-efficient for your home. The NFRC also labels doors, windows and skylights based on a condensation rating chart. This rating will be present on any door recently manufactured.
