3 Ideas for Enhancing Your Home's Curb Appeal This Fall

Planting mums and tastefully decorating for Halloween are two popular ways to enhance your home’s curb appeal during the fall season. There are, however, additional ways to improve the appearance of your home that are more long-lasting and add value to your property. Here are 3 ideas for enhancing your home’s curb appeal this fall:

1. Replace your front door. If your home is more than 10 years old, it could be time to update the look of your front porch by adding a new front door. “A new door goes a long way towards upgrading your home’s curb appeal,” explained Rob Mortell, Marketing Manager for Alexander Lumber. “The return on investment is high, and there are many options to choose from. At Alexander Lumber, we offer a wide variety of Masonite and wood doors, even custom wood doors.”

2. Replace your home’s windows. Not only can this enhance your home’s curb appeal, you can save on energy costs, increase your home’s security, and increase the value of the home. “At Alexander Lumber, we offer a variety of options for windows, with Kolbe and Weather Shield brands being our biggest sellers,” added Mortell. “You can add a new bay window in the front to update the home’s overall appearance.”

3. Replace your home’s siding. If your home is more than 20 years old, it may be time to enhance its curb appeal with new siding. Alexander Lumber offers LP SmartSide, which comes in 16 colors. It can also be finished with a custom color, or can mimic real wood. New siding transforms the entire look of a home.

“We also offer Azek and Timbertech decking,” said Mortell. “While these products are usually used for outdoor backyard decks, there are options for front porches as well. Our experienced sales experts can help you dream up and design just about anything you’d like, and arrange for installation as well.”
