Outside home remodeling ideas are plentiful, with lots of flashy updates you can make with painting, fences, patios and decks. Exterior home renovations are useful for not just curb appeal, but also to extend the lifespan of your home. The foundation and walls of a structure hold it together. It doesn’t matter how pretty a building is on the inside if it’s falling to disrepair on the outside!
At Total Renovations we recommend regular consideration of home exterior remodeling. Not just for visual benefits, but structural as well. Paying attention to your property is an important part of being a homeowner, and we’re here to help you keep it functional and strong.
When it gets chilly out, we put on a sweater. Why not do the same for your home? Proper insulation is a big part of functional exterior home makeovers and can be done in a multitude of ways. Insulation may seem like something done inside your home, but it can also be done from the outside. With the varying weather in Burnaby you owe it to your home.
If you need, or would like to re-side your home, ask about updating the insulation at the same time. Siding should only need replacement every 20 to 40 years, but it’s easy to get tired of a color in that timeframe. Or maybe you purchased an older home and never got to choose your siding in the first place.
Update the siding to make your home feel more like yours. In the process of applying new siding, we will insulate as well. Re-siding and insulating can have up-front costs but will save you money in the end, and help the planet!
Wood doors are classic and beautiful. However, insulated steel and fiberglass doors are more energy-efficient and can keep your home the temperature you like, while providing sound proofing. Modern fiberglass doors can even be made to look just like their wooden counterparts, so you don’t have to sacrifice the classic esthetic if that’s what you’re going for.
Don’t ever have to put insulating plastic over your windows again in colder months. At Total Renovations we’ll install easy-use windows and outfit them with the required insulation features. Don’t worry about window drafts ever again! New windows are just so much easier to use. Struggling with screens in the warmer months? Your new windows will slide open at the touch of a finger.
