Are you feeling drab about your home exterior? Have decades of an unfashionable design finally gotten the best of you? Instead of sticking to an uninspired exterior, make a change for the better with Lakeland Building Supply!
While there are hundreds of ways to upgrade a boring home, today we take a closer look at two features that can instantly transform any house in Chicago: windows and siding.
Whether you’re a local contractor searching for reputable products or a homeowner looking for the right window and siding options, these window and siding tips are for you!
New, Efficient Replacement Windows
Why you should
Chicago homeowners who want to make a big change on a relatively small
budget can get a lot of value out of new windows. Not only do modern windows
boost curb appeal with striking, customized designs—they can also save on heating
and cooling, thanks to state-of-the-art, energy-efficient constructions.
Ideas for your
windows: While many people opt for standard windows, there’s no reason to
stick with something you don’t love!
- For a subtle yet noticeable home upgrade, try replacing your Chicago windows with a classic style in a contemporary color or eye-catching grid pattern.
- If you want better natural lighting in any room, add expansive picture windows or even skylights!
- Looking for a touch of traditional elegance? Then consider swapping out your synthetic windows with real wood.
Residential Exterior Siding Options
Why you should
consider replacement siding: Chicago residents are
often surprised at how much of an impact new siding can have. Whether you live
in a classic Colonial or something more modern, replacement siding can turn any
aging, weather-worn home into the jewel of the neighborhood. And much like new
windows, siding can also significantly improve efficiency and
insulation—cutting down on noise pollution, heat transfer, and high energy
Ideas for your siding
installation: The days of boring siding are over; today you can choose
nearly any color, material, and trim you want!
- For a touch of Americana, explore various shake and shingle-inspired boards. These attractive options work especially well with mixed materials and colors.
- If you’re concerned about maintenance, think about switching to high-quality composite, metal, or fiber cement with your Chicago siding project.
- Want something rustic yet classic? Replace all or some of your siding with stone veneer—a material that looks like real stone but is lightweight and weather resistant.
