Improving Curb Appeal

  • Exterior Home Maintenance

    3/24/2011 12:00 AM

      The crisp spring air, longer days, warming breezes, the landscape coming to life after a long winter. The signs of spring are invigorating, and encourage many homeowners to get outside to get their yard and home exterior ready for summer. But exterior maintenance can become tedious and time consuming, especially if your home isn't new. Worn out gutters may be clogged with debris pulling away from the roof. If the downspouts aren't configured correctly, you could see landscape erosion. Your wood siding may be peeling, splitting or warping, and at the very least need power washing. Your window frames and sills may need sanding and repainting.   Now imagine your home with a low maintenance exterior. Vinyl replacement windows that never need sanding or repainting. A gutter system that never clogs or pulls away from your home. Downspouts carrying rain water away from your home efficiently and effectively, eliminating landscape erosion. Vinyl siding that is thicker, stronger and better insulated.

  • Entry Doors Increase Curb Appeal and Energy Efficiency

    Your front door is an important element in the curb appeal your home conveys.  Door style, material, color, windows/side lites, and quality all lend to the architectural style and look of your home. But beyond aesthetics, your entry door needs to function properly and efficiently.  If your door has any gaps and lets in drafts, you’re paying much more than you should to heat and cool your home.  For example, a mere 1/8” gap around your door causes the same energy loss as drilling a 5½” hole through it. It’s something you simply can’t ignore.  That’s why it’s important to choose doors that deliver air-tight comfort as well as beauty, security and value. A custom-fit entry door is the easiest, most cost-effective way to dramatically increase your home’s curb appeal without going through the hassle and expense of major renovations.  Thompson Creek offers the strongest, most energy-efficient doors in the industry.  They are custom-crafted to your specifications. They keep energy in – and unwanted drafts, noise and contaminants out.  The same insulating technology that keeps the cold air out in winter also blocks smog and toxic fumes from vehicles outside or in your garage. Whether you want bold or classic, modern or vintage, with glass or without – Thompson Creek offers thousands of options to create the perfect door for your home and get the unique look you want.  Choose from steel and fiberglass entry doors, aluminum storm doors and vinyl French and sliding patio doors.  And like all our products, our doors are backed by our transferable double lifetime guarantee.

  • Entry Doors Increase Curb Appeal

    If just one door to your home is letting in a draft, you’re paying much more than you should in order to heat or cool your entire house. Even a fraction of an inch can create a costly (not to mention uncomfortable) draft as air seeps in and escapes out around all sides of the door—not just along the bottom.   For example, a mere 1/8” gap around your door causes the same energy loss as drilling a 5½” hole through it. It’s something you simply can’t ignore.  That’s why it’s important to choose doors that deliver air-tight comfort as well as beauty, security and value.   A custom-fit entry door is the easiest, most cost-effective way to dramatically increase your home’s curb appeal without going through the hassle and expense of major renovations. Thompson Creek offers the strongest, most energy-efficient doors in the industry.  They are custom-crafted to your specifications. They keep energy in – and unwanted drafts, noise and contaminants out.  You’ll enjoy the maximum energy efficiency a door can provide and save money year after year.  The same insulating technology that keeps the cold air out in winter also blocks smog and toxic fumes from vehicles outside or in your garage.
