4 Hot Exterior Upgrades to Get Done Before Summer

Is your home ready for the season of grilling, lounging and basking in the sun? If not, you still have time to make some last-minute improvements! Check out these hot ideas for home remodeling in Sacramento, CA.

1. Make your facade more interesting.

Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows come in many fashionable hues. The frames are made with Fibrex®, a sturdy and stable composite. It’s infused with color during the manufacturing process for minimal maintenance and long-lasting appeal. The resulting windows are tough as nails against the weather.

When picking a window style, take cues from the rest of the home’s design. For example, traditional houses look best with frames in warm tones. By contrast, cool-colored frames can make contemporary homes sleek and stylish.

2. Connect your living space to the outdoors.

Decks, patios and gardens are all great venues for summer entertaining. Consider installing patio doors that connect the interior to your favorite outdoor space. French patio doors are the go-to option. Andersen Frenchwood® patio doors come in both outswing and gliding varieties, so you can choose the one that fits your space requirements.

3. Out with the old, in with the new.

Do you have a seldom-used patio door that has seen better days? Consider replacing it with large replacement windows in Sacramento. These will frame your outdoor views and transform the way your walls look from the outside at the same time.

A picture window from Renewal by Andersen offers virtually the same protection in summer as a standard door. It features High-Performance™ glass that’s covered with multilayer low-emissivity coatings. These coatings are spectrally selective, so they protect your home from heat and UV rays while still letting in optimal amounts of natural light.

4. Freshen up your entryway.

The front entry determines whether your guests will form a good impression of your home, so make sure your entryway is as stunning as possible. If you have enough overhead space, why not install a fixed unit above your front door? Specialty windows from Renewal by Andersen can be custom-built for this purpose. These charming units come in 13 different shapes that can give your entryway the boost it needs. Our favorites are Chord, Circle Top™ and Springline™—all of which you can pair with your front door.
