Update the exterior features of your home while increasing curb appeal and value of your property!

Updating exterior features can add curb appeal and increase the value of your home.  Exterior improvements can be recouped through resale by as much as 80% to 92% according to study done by Remodeling Magazine according to HGTV’s website. 

Consider updating siding, rooves, windows, and doors to the exterior features of your home.  Not only can such improvements increase curb appeal and value, but they can make your property and neighborhood more attractive.  City ordinance also outlines these guidelines for maintaining the exterior features of structures:

  1. Exterior of all structures should be maintained in good repair.
  2. Exterior wood surfaces should be protected from the elements and decay by paint, stain or other protective treatment.
  3. Structural members should be maintained free of deterioration.
  4. Exterior walls should be maintained free of holes, breaks, loose, missing, or rotting materials.
  5. Roofs should remain weather resistant and function as intended.
  6. Decks, porches, stairways, and similar structures should be structurally sound, maintained in good repair, and capable of supporting imposed loads.
  7. Windows, skylights and doors shall be kept in good repair and weather tight.
  8. Address numbers (minimum 4” in height) should be installed on all residential and commercial structures so as to be plainly visible from the street.
