Countdown to National Curb Appeal Month

Summertime and the living is easy … especially if you have low-maintenance products and sustainable roofing on your home!

With the launch of the Second Annual “National Curb Appeal Month” in August, the team at DaVinci Roofscapes reminds you that adding easy-care composite roofing to your home is a smart decision.

Designer RoofAccording to the 2015 Cost Versus Value Study conducted by Remodeling magazine, investments in a variety of exterior home improvement projects on a midrange priced home can have solid return-on-invest for homeowners. The study reports that a roof replacement can have a projected 71.6 percent cost versus value recoup.

If you’re going to make home improvement enhancements during National Curb Appeal Month, color expert Kate Smith has some tips.

“Strategically placed ‘pops of color’ on a home exterior can make a huge difference in creating positive curb appeal,” says Smith with Sensational Color. “Whether it’s window boxes filled with bright red geraniums, a front door painted colonial blue or trim pieces in a striking deep green, colorful accents can really help a home stand out in the neighborhood.

“My advice is to add ‘top down’ color to the home to gain a cohesive and appealing exterior. Start with the color of your designer roof, then work your way down to the siding, trim, doors and landscaping. The colors should all complement each other. Even if you have a sedate color scheme, there’s nothing wrong with shaking up a home with a warm, welcoming color on the front door and colorful landscaping.”
