One of the best aspects of building a custom home is the sense of pride you experience each time you pull up to your driveway. While each detail of your custom home is planned to meet your own needs and lifestyle, the first impression that the exterior of your home radiates from the curb is very important. The curb appeal of a custom home doesn’t only impact its resale value; it also gives the home more personality, extends the outdoor living space, and is the cornerstone of the homeowner’s pride in being a homeowner. Here are a few ways to boost your custom home’s curb appeal.
The Building Blocks – Textures and Materials
Two big factors come into play when picking your house’s exterior building materials: quality and your style. Using high-quality building materials creates a more elegant look and contributes to your home’s overall value. Meanwhile, picking materials and colors that reflect your own personal style gives your home character and distinction. We know exactly how important these factors are to the overall aesthetic value of your home. Robin Ford offers various colors and shingles for your roof and walls.
Windows, Doors, and More
Doors and windows are sort of like your home’s jewelry. They play a big role in its curb appeal, so take careful consideration when picking them. We always recommend our clients take a peek at their future windows and doors in person before buying them. A lot can be chosen when looking through a catalog, but you get the best sense of what your home will look like when you pick your doors and windows in person.
The Devils in the Details
It’s the little things that will really seal the deal when designing your custom home. Pay attention to all of the little things. For example, the quality of your gutters, freeze boards, flooring, downspouts, and fascia all play a role in the overall look and feel of your house. While a few builders save a couple of dollars by using plastic or vinyl materials for accents, we think that it is important to build the entire custom home with quality materials that will hold their beauty for a long time.
