For the Weekend Warriors:

A home makeover doesn't need to involve a lot of time and money. There are several DIY projects that can transform the look of your home with very little effort. 

    Paint the shutters, trim and front door a bold new color. 
    This can transform and update your home's exterior without having to replace siding.

    Revamp your landscaping. 
    Gardening isn't just for spring fall is a great time to plant hearty flowers such as Mums and Goldenrod. 
    Re-mulch, add a seating area, or build a decorative brick walkway for an easy property pick-me-up.

    Add some lighting. It's easier than you think to install solar powered lighting along your front path or spotlights around a tree. 
    Well-placed lighting can increase security and turn an ordinary home into a palace at night.

    Replace your mailbox. It's amazing how often even the most gorgeous homes have old, neglected mailboxes. 
    For something that is front and center on most homes many overlook this potential eyesore. 
    Take the time to replace your old box with a style that flatters and complements your home. 

When it's Time for a Big Change

DIY projects are great for a quick fix but sometimes something more invasive is necessary. 
Here are some professional projects to consider before the cold weather hits. 
Be sure to call Universal Windows Direct of Ft. Wayne for the best service when you are ready to:

    Replace your front door. Check the seals along your front door jamb. 
    If your door is becoming old and drafty, it may be time to replace. 
    A new front door is also the perfect opportunity to upgrade to an elegant new style to transform the look of your home.

    Invest in new windows. With cold weather approaching, considering upgrading to new energy efficient windows. 
    Not only will they decrease your heating costs but they will give your home a fresh clean look to instantly boost curb appeal.

    Update to vinyl siding. Old dented aluminum siding or crumbling brick can ruin the look of even the most gorgeous old homes. 
    New vinyl siding stands up to the worst weather conditions to keep your home looking new and fresh year round. 
    Not to mention, it has the single biggest impact when you're ready to transform the look of your home.
