Consider some exterior home upgrades for your summer home this season.

Summer is the season of sunshine, outdoor gatherings, and making memories with loved ones. As you gear up for warmer weather, why not give your summer home a refreshing makeover? At T&G Builders, we have extensive experience refreshing and remodeling homes to boost their beauty and longevity, especially in waterfront locales. If you are ready to improve your summer home, consider how these exterior upgrades can make an impact. 


The siding of your home is its first line of defense against the elements, so why not make it stylish, too? Upgrade your siding to a durable, aesthetically pleasing option such as wood, PVC, or vinyl. Not only will new siding enhance the appearance of your home, but it will also improve energy efficiency and require minimal maintenance, leaving you more time to relax and enjoy your summer oasis.


Windows play a key role in enhancing your home’s appearance and functionality. Consider replacing outdated windows with energy-efficient options that allow natural light to flood your living spaces while keeping your house cool and comfortable during summer. Choose from a variety of styles, including casement, double-hung, or picture windows, to complement your home’s architecture and create a welcoming atmosphere.


Your front door is the focal point of your home’s exterior, welcoming guests and setting the tone for your summer retreat. Exterior upgrades that improve your front door can impact curb appeal and home security. Upgrade to a stylish and secure entry door that reflects your personal taste and complements your home’s design aesthetic. Consider decorative glass inserts or sidelights to add character and charm to your entryway. Don’t forget to upgrade your patio or French doors leading to outdoor living spaces for seamless indoor-outdoor flow.


A sturdy and well-maintained roof is essential for protecting your home from the elements and preserving its structural integrity. If your roof shows signs of wear and tear or is nearing the end of its lifespan, consider investing in a roof replacement. Choose from various roofing materials available to enhance your home’s durability and curb appeal. A new roof will provide peace of mind and elevate the overall aesthetic of your summer retreat.

Screened Porches

Exterior home upgrades can help you finally create the outdoor oasis you want. Turning your porch into a screened porch means you can more easily enjoy warm summer evenings without the nuisance of bugs or harsh sunlight. A screened porch adds valuable living space to your home and provides a comfortable retreat for relaxation and entertaining. Customize your screened porch with features such as ceiling fans, lighting, and built-in seating to create a functional and inviting outdoor living area that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
