3 ways to create curb appeal for the homeowner
Today's homeowner is interested in more than just high-quality products that perform. They also want products to meet their architectural and design demands. Whether they're renovating an existing home or building something new, the owner wants a home to reflect their personal style. The contractor's challenge is to find products that allow for both fashion and function. Here are three easy ways to do just that.
1 - Siding in exciting colour combinations
Vinyl siding, in designer colours, is a great way to enhance a home's curb appeal, while offering the insulation and protection required to beat the elements. Siding is no longer limited to traditional pale or natural colours. Dark, rich tones are now possible, thanks, in part to Gentek's advanced manufacturing technologies and exciting new colour formulations. Provide a full low-maintenance solution when you install Gentek's soffit and facia in matching or complimentary colours.
2 - High performance windows and doors
Replacing old, drafty units with new energy efficient windows is a great option if the homeowner's budget allows. Alternatively, you can add some finishing touches to the home's exterior facelift by simply painting the front entrance door in a bold colour. What better way to create a grand entrance and a happy customer.
3 - An entrance that welcomes guests
A new or spruced up front porch can improve a home's curb appeal and add enjoyable outdoor living space. Trex Composite Decking offers your clients an eye-catching and functional element. Its low-maintenance, durable composition stands up to harsh weather.
