Add shutters to your home for curb appeal
Shutters are not just decorative touches that make your home stand out. They are also effective at shading your home and protecting carpets, indoor furniture and drapes from fading due to UV exposure. Of course, when looking at a home with shutters from the outside, you are not too worried about the fading carpets on the inside. Rather, you are sure to first notice the gorgeous colors, any raised designs and then the perfect fit of style and home design.
With the help of Sears, you now have the option of adding these stunning but practical shutters to your home as well. Block out unwanted sunlight, easily control the home's temperature and improve the appearance of the facade with the simple installation of modern shutters. Look for manufacturer names like Builders Edge and Perfect Shutters. Pick raised panel designs or opt for louvered shutters instead. Colors run the gamut from forest green to musket brown. That said, you do not have to rely solely on a manufacturer's color scheme. Paintable vinyl shutters let you pick the design you love and then paint it with the color you adore.
Complement the superior shading power of shutters with awnings. They come in a variety of attractive colors and designs. Stripes add a focal point to an otherwise uniformly painted home. Solid colors complement the trim of the home. Aluminum, stainless steel frames and hardware ensure secure mounting to the wall. Manually retractable awnings allow you to roll up the canvas when you do not desire the shade for your deck or patio. A mechanically retractable awning lets you accomplish the same result with the push of a button.
To ensure that you can enjoy shade anywhere in your landscape, go ahead and add various types of outdoor shades to your backyard. Pergolas add partial shade to a deck or patio. When you install them permanently, you have the option of training up vines along the side. When these vines bloom, the flowers add to the shade you enjoy from the pergola. Gazebos are perfect when you desire more permanent shade for an outdoor seating or dining area. Erect temporary canopies if you need just a little extra shade while the kids are playing.
Since you are working near the roof line, take a glance at your shingles and make sure everything is in good repair. If needed, add some patching cement to areas you have previously repaired. Strengthen shingles around the chimney and the roof vents. If needed, use a few roofing nails to secure any loose shingles you see.
Sears carries a huge assortment of shutters, awnings, outdoor shades and shingles. Greatly increase your home's curb appeal and value with the addition of these decorative but functional touches to the exterior of the house.
