Home Exterior Remodeling San Jose
The Importance of Home Exterior Remodeling for San Jose Homeowners
You may consider the interior of your home more valuable in how it directly impacts your comfort, but the exterior impacts a lot more. Comfort isn’t the only thing impacted when your home’s exterior dwindles in quality. Its beauty and the home’s overall value decrease too. BetterBuilt Builders is here to help you understand the importance of exterior home renovations.
While your roof and siding make up large portions of your home’s exterior beauty, they are not the only aspects you must consider. Windows and paint are just two other exterior components that directly impact the home’s value and beauty. BetterBuilt Builders knows the importance of exterior remodeling projects because we’ve seen the significant benefits they’ve had on residents.
Benefits of Home Exterior Remodeling
As a homeowner, you want to improve the value of your property as you live there. This is done by renovating, remodeling, and updating the home as it ages. This goal encompasses every part of your home, including the exterior. When you renovate the exterior of your home, you can expect serious benefits:
Increased Home Value
Anytime you update your home, you increase its value. According to the Cost vs. Value Report by Remodeling Magazine, the average payback for exterior home renovations was 74.9% compared to interior renovations, which were 63.5%. This means you’ll recoup more costs of an exterior renovation project than that of an interior renovation.
Better Curb Appeal
Giving the exterior of your home, an updated look can do wonders for its curb appeal. When or if you choose to sell the home, those exterior home renovations will stand out in potential buyers’ eyes. They’ll see the updated siding, roof replacement, and new windows, which can make your home more appealing to them. When buyers see these aspects need renovation, they either lose interest or offer a lower price. If you aren’t going to sell, it is important for you to love the outside of your home as much as the inside.
Older homes will eventually start falling apart—this you may already know. Your roof may have several leaks. The siding may have mold or mildew growing. The paint is dull and chipping. These problems require your time and attention. Renovating all of these things in one fell swoop reduces the amount of maintenance needed to keep them looking pristine. We recommend exterior home renovations when you experience a lot of outdoor maintenance.
Your siding, roof, windows, and even the paint help determine your home’s energy efficiency. All of these qualities have an impact on the temperature of your home throughout the year. Windows, siding and the roof help keep in cool air and prevent hot air from entering. Your home’s paint can affect how much sun it absorbs. Certain types of paint and color absorb more UV rays making your house warmer than it should.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should I remodel the exterior or the interior of my home first?
It really comes down to your preference. Many choose to remodel their home’s interior first because it has more impact on their comfort than the exterior. However, some exterior remodeling projects should take priority, such as roofing, windows, and siding. These exterior features are important for protecting the rest of your home and even have a direct impact on the interior’s comfort. For that reason, it will come down to the current state of your home’s exterior and your preferences.
