Bring the Indoors Out
Outdoor living not only provides additional living space for your family, but it can also add significant value to your home. Many homeowners first think about remodeling the interior of their home, and while interior renovations can increase home value, many home owners and prospective home buyers are looking for unique outdoor living areas. There are a number of things to consider as you look to expand your home's outdoor living space while improving the overall value.
Keep the heat in (or out)
Energy efficient windows and exterior doors can not only cut the energy consumption cost, but adds significant curb appeal to your home. Cellular PVC windows are the alternative to wood windows, offering a no-rot, natural wood aesthetic. Cellular PVC windows are stronger than vinyl windows, offer more glass space, are lower in maintenance and can be painted to match your home's color scheme. Energy efficiency is also a considering factor for many prospective home buyers.
When improving your home's exterior, consider building or replacing a deck or porch. Decks should be made for enjoyment but also built to last. Consider a high quality, wood-alternative decking material like composite decking. Composite decking withstands the Georgia heat and humidity as well as frost during winter months. Composite decking is mildew and insect resistant and maintains its color and beauty for years to come. Decks and porches can be built in a variety of designs, from contemporary to coastal, matching the style of your home.
Your new favorite room
With any luck, Georgia's unseasonal rainfall in 2013 didn't put a stop to enjoying the great outdoors. If it did and you were rained out from relaxing in your outside living space, consider installing an under deck ceiling system. Transform your deck to a waterproof outdoor living area for your family. Available in several colors to coordinate with your home exterior, this rustproof aluminum system adds hours of entertainment to your outdoor living space. Never let the rain or extreme heat stop another cookout or party. Enjoy your deck year round with an under deck ceiling system.
