Does Your Home Need a Little Self-Esteem, Curb Appeal Boost?
We all know that there are many stresses that come with the blessings of homeownership. There are property taxes, higher bills, maintenance to keep up with etc. but it’s all worth it to be able to say you own your own little piece of paradise that you can customize! While maintaining your home is best for your investment, curb appeal is also a valid thing to want to maintain.
Your home should be your pride and joy and you should want to show it off to your neighbors! So let’s look at some questions you might want to ask yourself if you’re ready to spruce up your home’s exterior a bit:
What material is your home’s exterior? Wood? Stucco?
No matter the material of your home’s exterior, we have a solution to spruce up the look as well as the functionality of your siding. If your home is stucco, you may notice cracking, chipping, or other aesthetics defects over time. One solution for upgrading your stucco is the Coolwall system by Texcote. Here at CAT Exteriors, we are a Platinum Dealer with Texcote of America and utilize Texcote Certified Installers, meaning that we offer the best of the best from Texcote.

Another option for your exterior is to upgrade to vinyl siding. There are various options and styles for vinyl siding such as, horizontal panels, traditional lap, Dutch lap, and more – click here for more details on all of the various styles of vinyl siding that we offer. Switching to vinyl siding offers permanent solutions to your wood/paint problems and eliminates your costly future maintenance. As we specialize in all forms of vinyl encapsulation that will keep your home looking new, you will never have to sand or paint ever again.
When was the last time your home was painted?
No matter the material your home was built in if it’s a material that needs to be painted you will find yourself doing this every 3-8 years or so. Wood exteriors need repainting every 3-7 years, and stucco and aluminum every 5-6 years. The quality of previous jobs and maintenance also plays a factor in the paint.
If you are not the original homeowner and have no history on exterior paint or maintenance to your siding, it might be beneficial to start from scratch and upgrade to vinyl siding.
What effect does your climate have on your home’s exterior?
Do you live in a very dry, hot, or cold climate? These are some climates that can be extra harsh on your home and it’s exterior materials. If you have paint on the exterior of your home, extreme heat, cold, or moisture can affect how long it lasts, how it sets when you do the actual paint job, and well as aesthetics, since extreme temperatures can cause chipping and cracking.
If you decide to upgrade to Texcote Coolwall or our vinyl siding, you will get materials that will last longer in extreme weather, but also better efficiency as both are built to insulate and protect the home from extreme temperatures.
