1) Build a Deck
Decks are often the central point for family gatherings, outdoor cookouts, and outdoor entertainment. Decks allow you to relax outside and enjoy great New England weather. Whether you are looking to add a deck to your home or simply renovate your existing deck, the process requires planning, ordering the right materials, and craftsmanship.
Care Free Homes, Inc. can help you plan the location, design, and style of your deck, discuss material choices like composite or PVC decking, and colors. You can even try TimberTech's deck design tool to test some of your ideas out. When you're ready to turn your dream design into a real, maintenance-free outdoor space, Care Free Homes, Inc. can get you started. Looking to add a porch or a pergola? They can take care of those projects, too.
2) Update Your Siding
Love natural wood products? Care Free Homes, Inc. offers nothing less than the best grades of cedar siding, including natural or dipped cedar shingles and cedar clapboard siding. Natural cedar siding has been protecting homes for centuries and remains a popular siding in historic and coastal communities because of its natural tones and warm grey colors.
However, the quality and texture of today’s vinyl siding products also present an authentic, natural appearance that looks like wood but without the hassle and maintenance; it doesn't peel, chip, or crack. It will not rot, dent, or show scratches and it's easy to clean and it eliminates the need to paint or stain your home every few years.
3) Replace Your Roof
Roofs are not "Do It Yourself" projects and choosing a reliable, verifiable roofer is your first step in getting the job done.
While it doesn't sound like the most exciting home-improvement project, a new roof does give you the chance to freshen up the look of your home by giving you an opportunity to change your roof's color. Your home may have a lot of brickwork or historic element that pair best with a classic color pallet. The right color roof can even help you show off your home's features like a wrap-around porch or stone walls.
Use the GAF Virtual Home Remodeler tool to see what different shingles could look like on your home. If you plan on selling your home in the future, stick to a neutral color that potential homeowners will agree with. Care Free Homes, Inc. customers' favorites include Fox Hollow Gray, Biscayne Blue, and Weathered Wood.
