How to give your Derby home kerb appeal
Creating kerb appeal is important if you’re a house-proud property owner. If you want your home to give an excellent first impression to friends and family, it means keeping your property properly neat!
Today, more and more homeowners are turning their talents to interior design in a bid to create a more stylish place to live – but don’t forget that the outside of your house is just as important.
It is true what people say – first impressions count. So, if you’re keen to boost your home’s kerb appeal, here’s a few simple tips on how to put your house streets ahead of your neighbours.
So, what can you do?
There are lots of relatively simple ways to boost your home’s kerb appeal and ensure your property gives an excellent first impression.
Pay special attention to your front door
Your front door makes a statement about your whole property – so it’s important to make the right choice.
As the entrance way to your home, first impressions really do matter. If you’re looking for a front door that offers superior performance as well as exceptional style, look no further that our range of composite doors.
They’re a popular choice in Derby due to all the quality benefits including style, security, thermal efficiency and low-maintenance nature of the door.
At Trade Windows, our composite doors can be customised to suit your design requirements and the choice is endless. We have a huge range of colours, including a woodgrain option which has the appearance of a timber door. Our unique composite doors also come with specialist glazing, a choice of handles, knockers and letterplates.
What’s even more exciting is that we can design your composite door and tailor it to your home so you can be sure it looks perfect and adds real kerb appeal to the exterior of your home.
New windows improve kerb appeal
Your home WILL look stunning if you invest in new windows. They’ll certainly increase kerb appeal and you’ll be the envy of all your neighbours.
Of course, windows are a modern-day essential, but they also transform a home. Here at Trade Windows, we can tell you that buying new windows can add lasting value to your property.
Whether you’re admiring them from the outside or inside, we can certainly help to brighten up your property.
When considering new windows, think about what look you’re trying to create and don’t be afraid to come in and visit our showroom. You can wander round Trade Street, our London Road showroom, and see the excellent range of windows we have on display.
We’re always stocked with a vast selection of windows, whether you’re after classic PVCu windows in casement, tilt and turn, sliding sash or bay & bow styles, as well as contemporary aluminium windows and Lumi frame-less windows.
How to transform the exterior of your home
If your cladding is cracked, it’s time to give it some overdue attention and fix the problem.
If you’re keen to add kerb appeal to your home, you certainly don’t want a poorly maintained exterior – it just doesn’t look good.
If you have timber cladding, you can replace it with PVCu cladding, which will give your home a lovely new lease of life. This product won’t peel, crack or warp and you’ll be left with a truly superb looking home. Cladding looks great on properties with dormer windows, chalet bungalows and on porches and can also look great between bay windows.
If you didn’t already know, we can fit cladding to your property to cover any unattractive brickwork, transforming your home to give it a stylish, exterior finish.
Now let’s talk roofline…
Fascias and soffits are vital for your roofline systems as they protect your home from rainwater damage. Replacing them certainly adds kerb appeal to your property and will create a seamless finish to the exterior of your home.
At Trade Windows, we offer our high spec aluminium guttering, Tradeflow, to protect your roofline.
This is a popular choice across Derby and Derbyshire, as it has the capacity to take more water than other guttering, which in turn protects your roofline.
Strong and sturdy to withstand Derbyshire’s harshest weather, Tradeflow is a low maintenance roofline system, with high performance.
Tradeflow ensures both your roof and your fascias and soffits are protected from rainwater that can ruin both the appearance and performance of your system. It uses continuous aluminium which allows us to create the perfect length of guttering for your home, reducing the number of joints you need.
