3 Major Elements That Will Determine Your Home’s Curb Appeal

There are a lot of big decisions that go into the design of your home. While most of your attention may be on the interior, you shouldn’t ignore the exterior. It’s important to be mindful of your curb appeal for your own enjoyment and for the potential to eventually sell.

Siding

A majority of your home’s exterior is siding, so it’s important to give some attention to this area. Siding can make your home look newer and more inviting. There are several types of siding available. One of the most traditional is wood siding. You’ll see wood siding on many historical homes. Wood siding comes in a variety of styles and is one of the most attractive options. Just keep in mind that it can be more high maintenance since wood is more subject to weather damage, rot, and insects. A lower maintenance option is metal siding. This option is more durable and lower maintenance. Lastly, you can consider fiber cement siding which is highly durable, low maintenance, and even made from recycled materials.

Roofing

When it comes to picking a roof for your custom house, the options are endless. A lot goes into this decision. You have to think about style, utility, and practicality. There are numerous roof styles to choose from when building a custom home. You can consider anything from a gabled roof to a flat roof to a hipped roof. Think about the weather where you live. A gabled roof is a wise choice for areas with a lot of rain and snow. A flat roof would be practical in a hotter, dryer climate. You can also pick a roof based on architectural impact, such as a butterfly roof.

Landscaping

Another area that has a big impact on your curb appeal is your landscaping. Adding some trees, bushes, and flower beds adds character to your home and makes it look well-cared for. Of course, there’s plenty to consider when planning your landscaping. First of all, you’ll need to have a clear plan in mind and you should also be considerate of the practicality of the plan. It’s a good idea to take some time reviewing your yard including the slope, where the sun hits, etc. You will also need to consider laying topsoil as well as decide whether you will lay down sod of plant grass seed.

The outside of your house should look just as presentable and appealing is the inside. When building a custom home, you have a lot more input and control. Make the most of the situation and find the best way to create an inviting home exterior.
