It is easy to see why exterior work is so frequently done first when a house is being renovated. That’s because people’s first impressions of your home will be based on its exterior. It’s one of the best ways to increase your home’s value and curb appeal because visitors will come in regardless of the condition of your exterior.
The interior of your home could be stunning, but if the exterior is unappealing, potential buyers may never set foot inside. If you’re planning on renovating the outside of your home, here’s what you can expect and how you can get ready for it.
What should you expect from the exterior renovation?
Renovations to the interior versus the exterior of a home differ significantly. For the purposes of this article, we’ll focus on special roof, siding, or window installation or replacement, as well as what homeowners can expect.
Why is it necessary to plan and estimate in advance?
Before hammering in the first nail, it is crucial to draw up a detailed plan and estimate of costs, just as you would for any other home improvement project. There are many things to think about when planning an exterior home remodel. The following are some questions you should ask yourself:
Which aspects of my house do I wish to improve? Is my focus on windows, siding, roofing, or all of the above?
The roofing, sidings, windows, and doors make up the majority of the overall cost of an exterior remodel. The average budget varies greatly depending on the size of your home, and the number of changes you would like to make.
It’s also possible that some of your home’s exterior features will start to look mismatched after you’ve updated others. For instance, the aesthetic value of a new coat of paint on a house would be diminished if the windows, doors, fascia, and gutters were all old and dirty. At Cavalier Homes, we offer free consultations to ensure that you get the most out of your remodeling project and stay within your budget by taking into account all the areas of your home.
What should I expect in terms of disruptions?
Renovating the outside of your home is typically less disruptive than working on the interior. Nevertheless, there may be some interruptions here and there. Roofing and siding replacement, as well as the installation of new doors and windows, are all construction tasks that generate waste and generate noise. Industrial-strength air compressors are needed to power the nail guns used in roofing and construction. It is necessary to have a dumpster on site in order to dispose of debris created during the removal of roofing or siding.
Cavalier Homes makes every effort to reduce the frequency and duration of these annoyances. Because no work is being done inside the house, exterior renovations are typically less disruptive than interior remodels.
It is not as common for homeowners to have to relocate temporarily during the course of an exterior renovation as it is for interior renovations.
When can you expect the renovations to be finished?
Our expectations for how long it should take to complete an exterior home improvement project are unrealistic. Although it is difficult to provide a precise timeframe, the following is a general overview of the time it takes for a project to go from the initial consultation to completion.
An initial interview with the home renovation contractor is important. In most cases, a contract and proposal for an exterior renovation take about 2 to 3 weeks to put together and deliver to the client. Once the client signs off on the contract, work can officially begin. After the contract is signed, the average turnaround time is 1-2 weeks.
Once work has begun, a typical siding and painting job will take between 3 and 4 weeks to complete. It usually takes between 4 and 6 weeks to finish a project that requires siding, paint, and windows. It will take about 8–10 weeks to finish the exterior and interior finishes, such as siding, paint, windows, doors, and roofing. Once again, timeframes can vary based on the extent of the work and the size of the home.
