When you read through home improvement magazines or watch those home improvement TV shows, you often come across an article of a program that talks at length about the “simple ways to update your home and add value.” Regardless of whether it’s a magazine article or a home improvement guru talking about additions or changes to your home that are meant to update or improve certain features, protect your home from the ravages of time and weather, or add curb appeal and property value for some future resale date, there’s one home improvement suggestion that always makes it to the top 5 “best suggestions” for overall protection and enhancement of your home. And that would be the addition of vinyl siding – a topic near and dear to our hearts here at Continental Siding in Kansas City.
As Old Man Winter finally creeps away and the advent of spring signals a new season for lawn care and home improvement, the media is absolutely buzzing with home improvement tips and articles. Just recently, one of our sales guys noticed an article at the Yahoo! Homes website that discussed at length a number of simple ways to update your home. As you can imagine, we’ve seen a great deal of these types of articles over the years, but the interesting thing about this particular article was the fact that the authors of the article listed 6 important upgrades to the average residential home and Continental Siding just happens to be a well-respected expert in 4 of the 6 suggested remodeling projects that were listed. Here’s how the list broke down:
1. Install maintenance-free vinyl siding
2. Replace your old hail-damaged roof
3. Install quality vinyl replacement windows
4. Replace your old rusted or dented garage doors
5. Paint the exterior of your house
6. Landscape the front and back of the house
As mentioned earlier, we thought this list from the fine folks at the Yahoo! Homes website was particularly interesting because we’ve been in the home improvements business for over 30 years and we’ve built a solid reputation here in the Midwest for the quality of our vinyl siding and other home improvement products, as well as the quality of our installation services. And, of the 6 items listed in the online article, we’re experts in the top 4 suggested improvements: vinyl siding, roofing, replacement windows, and replacement garage doors. Okay, sure, most of our guys have been in the home improvement business for the better part of their lives, and they know a thing or two about painting houses (item 5) and planting shrubs (item 6), but we like to concentrate on what we do best.
