3 Exterior Projects that save Energy and add Value

Updating the exterior of your home will not only make your home more attractive; it will also increase your property value and save you money in the long run. The roofing, siding and windows that are in your home greatly affect your energy consumption. Investing in better siding, energy efficient windows and quality roofing can save a great deal of money in the long run.

Roofing

An aging roof can quickly turn into a leaking roof. Waiting for the roof to actually fail before getting it fixed can leave you with damaged walls, ceilings and floors. If your shingles are curling, tearing or missing completely you should call a professional New Hampshire roofing contractor to install a new roof. The expense of a roof is small compared to the expensive property damage that will result if it fails. Reflective roof surfaces save you money by reducing the “heat island” effect that’s caused when surfaces absorb the heat from the sun.

Siding

Your siding protects your house from rain, snow, wind, critters and insects. Holes and rotten areas provide entry for unwanted guests, as well as blowing winds and moisture. Have a experienced New Hampshire siding contractor replace damaged siding with new siding will protect your home as well as increasing the curb appeal. Insulated siding can also help protect your home from extreme temperatures. Keep the cool air outdoors in the winter and inside the home during the hot summer months. Not only will your home look nicer, but you will also enjoy a big drop in your heating and cooling bills. Energy efficient siding will also have an insulating effect that will help you lower the energy bills.

Window Replacement

Windows provide you with a view of the outside world. They may also be the biggest source of energy loss in your home. Leaking windows allow the air to flow in and out of your home freely. Heating costs in the winter will steadily rise, and you may find the house impossible to cool in the summer. If your windows are more twenty years old, they probably need to be replaced and you should call a New Hampshire window replacement specialist. If you have trouble getting them open and then closing them, replacement windows may be required. If you can feel the air coming in around the frame during the cold months, they should definitely be replaced. This is one project that can pay for itself in a few short years through decreased energy costs. You can also choose windows with special coatings that block the UV rays streaming in, helping you prolong the life of furniture, flooring and other items.

Exterior home projects help update the look of your home. They also help you protect the interior structure by keeping the roof, siding and windows in great condition. Enjoy lower energy bills as you make your home more energy efficient, and enjoy how attractive your updated home looks.
