Though you will spend a lot of time finding the right windows and doors to go with your exterior remodel, the frames that those items go into are much more important. A lot of the costs associated with heating and cooling a home come from conditioned air that leaks out of the home and into the world. Keeping the doors and windows shut will reduce that leakage, but the frames still allow some air to go through. During the exterior remodel, check to make sure that the windows and doors are framed correctly and that you cannot see daylight between the frame and the window or door. Tight seals will keep the air that you want inside your home and keep the air that you are avoiding on the outside.

When you get the chance to do a home remodel, most of your attention is likely to be spent on the fun and interesting parts of the remodel, like the windows and the doors. The reality is that the parts of the exterior remodel that need the most attention are also the least glamorous and may have very little attention paid to them when the remodel is finished; however, if you spend the extra time and money in these places, your home will stay protected for a long time. Here are three places where you should spend extra time and money.

Windows are often dramatically undervalued when people think about their home’s exterior. By the use of color contrast between the sashes and the window frames, the type of trim used around the window and the potential use of shutters or flowerboxes, windows can become the second most important sustainer of interest in your home beyond the entry. When embraced by the various trim and siding elements mentioned earlier, windows can become the final complementary embellishment to the outside presence of your home.

When considering gables, trim, windows, doors and other elements of a house, the essential ingredient from which all variations and expressions flow is the basic siding material used for the majority of your home’s exterior surfaces, “field.” It often makes sense to celebrate the horizontal lines of a Ranch home with clapboards that have heavy shadow lines so that the counterpoints of windows, doors, trim, and, perhaps, gable siding, seem all the more activated and zesty. In homes that have horizontal and vertical elements, a neutral siding material (smaller, narrower exposure clapboards of tight shingle coursing) can allow the larger elements of the home to “pop” using reinforcing trim and the “banding” or “gridding” described earlier.
