Spruce up Your Exterior

As we said last week, it is time to dig out your work gloves and get a start on your outdoor projects. Have you thought about what projects you would like to tackle this summer? What could you do to freshen up the exterior of your home? Let’s look at a few different aspects of your home’s exterior that can add curb appeal and value with a little sprucing up.

Exterior Doors

Over the course of the winter your exterior doors can take a beating, spring is the perfect time to freshen up your home’s entrances. If you have a steel or wood door you will want to be sure that you check the finish on your door and touch-up as needed. Fiberglass doors generally require no more maintenance then a good washing to remove the dirt from winter weather. If you are thinking about replacing your doors, check out Acclimated Entry Systems. We offer hundreds of style options in wood, fiberglass, and steel – with or without glass – to make your front door reflective of your personal style. Acclimated Entry Systems provide entry doors built with a combination of premium components designed to withstand the extreme conditions of the Midwest climate. The standard features within our Acclimated Entry Systems will add value to your home and the endless options provide visual appeal.

Deck Railing

Wood decks take a lot of abuse from the elements, and they need a good cleaning from time to time to look their best. Be sure that you give your deck a proper washing and perhaps thinks about adding maintenance free railing to cut down on the refinishing needed each year. We offer a versatile deck railing product that is easy to install, durable, and maintenance free. Regal aluminum railing is available with a variety of picket options, including tempered glass panels, which can be mixed and matched to create your own unique style and design. There are also adapters available to mix aluminum pickets and tempered glass panels with your wood or composite rail and post system. New from Regal this year is the addition of LED lighting for your railing system – a nice addition for those nights spent grilling out.

Exterior Columns

Exterior columns can serve a number of functions for your home. They can be loading bearing to support your new deck addition and they provide an aesthetic element to many architectural styles. If you already have post beams installed for support consider our column covers for an upgraded look. Or are looking at adding some type of column to your home, consider one of our low maintenance options. Dixie Pacific offers loading bearing columns with extreme durability and minimal maintenance. These fiberglass columns are available in a variety of designs with decorative options to fit most architectural styles. We also offer PVC columns for Turnkey Millwork and aluminum columns from Regal Ideas. All of these options are low maintenance and easy installation so adding columns to your home would be a snap.

These are just a few ideas to help get you started on your spring projects, and the products covered here are just the start of our exterior product offering. We also offer a wide selection of storm doors, exterior mouldings and more. For more details on our entire product lineup visit www.bayerbuilt.com.
