Exterior remodeling can help improve the appearance and value of your home. At the beginning of any Minneapolis remodeling project, you’ll likely find that you’re facing lots of choices, especially when it comes to cost, style and how much remodeling you want to do. Whether you’re planning on a light touch up to improve curb appeal prior to selling your home, or just want to keep it looking great for years to come, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.
Make a Budget (and Stick to It)
Your home won’t benefit from a half-finished exterior remodeling project, so ensure you have a good idea of how much you can afford to spend. You’ll be able to get a better idea of how much the cost of your project might be by consulting a professional before you get started.
Pay Attention to Architecture
Choosing the right look for your remodeling project is as important as determining how much you’re going to spend on it. Don’t be afraid to be bold, but don’t go overboard with choices that don’t fit your home’s architecture.
Take Long-Term Maintenance into Account
Many exterior remodeling materials are made to be maintenance-free (or nearly so) for years after their installation. However, there are some siding and roofing choices that may require regular maintenance. Make sure to take these costs into account when you’re making your remodeling choices for your Minneapolis home.
Improve Energy Efficiency if Possible
You can improve your home’s efficiency by choosing energy-efficient windows, siding and other materials for your remodeling project. Make the most of your exterior remodel by reducing your home’s carbon footprint.
Be Kind to the Environment
Work with contractors who understand the importance of reducing waste. At Midwest Exteriors Plus, we recycle as much of the waste from an exterior remodel as possible. In 2011, we were able to recycle more than 80% of the shingles we removed during roofing jobs. That was more than 900 tons of waste that was recycled and didn’t end up in a landfill.
