Adding a Portico and 4 Other Ways to Improve Curb Appeal

At Blair Construction, we believe even a small effort to improving your house goes a long way. You don’t need to have a full home renovation to address structural issues, improve curb appeal, or keep the look of your property in Bethesda or Annapolis up-to-date.

Here are five ways to increase curb appeal and solve common problems in your home.       

1. Install a Portico

A portico is a covered entryway that increases your home’s curb appeal. It protects your front door from the elements while giving the property a colonial appeal. If you want to add a dramatic effect to your home without the fear of overdoing it, installing a portico is the best option.  

2. Replace Your Siding

Cracked, faded, and discolored siding can make your house look as if you’ve taken it for granted. Make it look as good as new minus the cost of a full house remodeling by replacing your siding. To make the most of your new siding, think about using our vinyl siding.

With our siding products, you don’t have to scrape or paint them to preserve their appearance. Furthermore, our vinyl siding can resist mildew and molds.

3. Get New Windows

Don’t understand why your energy bill is through the roof even when you’ve done everything to keep it down? You may need to buy replacement windows in Bethesda with a high R-value and low U-factor (Call us and ask about these important features). As we offer a range of styles, materials, and sizes, you won’t have to settle with an off-the-shelf design. You’ll find windows that match your house and meet your needs. You get better-looking windows and the chance to lower your electricity bill.

4. Repair or Replace Your Roof

Loose shingles, rotten soffit (underside), and detached eave (bottom overhang) can have a negative effect on the appearance of your house. Fix roofing problems as soon as you can to avoid costly damages and to increase the curb appeal of your home.

5. Repair or Replace Gutters

Like your roof, old, rusty gutters can affect the look of your house. Don’t wait until they are blocked or leaking before replacing them. It won’t only cause many problems but it also doesn’t look good. When was the last time you saw a house with leaking gutters? What did you think of it? Your neighbors and passersby will think of the same thing when they see your leaky gutters.

Improving your home’s curb appeal doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Simple upgrades and repairs can do the trick. Consult our specialists when replacing your roof, siding, gutters, or windows in Annapolis, Bethesda, and other parts of Maryland.
