How to Charm Your Apartment Tenants with Siding - siding contractors - Mares & Dow

Curb appeal.

It is a term real estate agents use in reference to boosting the value of a home. However, the term curb appeal also applies to landlords that want to make their rental properties as visually appealing as possible. One way to charm your tenants is to work with one of the best siding contractors in your area.

New siding gives your rental property a clean finish that is easy to maintain. The best siding provides years of rugged durability, as well as is resistant to issues such as rust, dents, and mold. You do not have to spend every spring painting over eyesores, nor do you have to repair siding before the onset of winter.

Your tenants take pride in where they live. Let’s look at a few ways you can charm your apartment tenants by installing high-quality siding.

Lap Siding

If you want to go with a classic look that exudes tradition, lap siding presents an inviting appearance. Remember you not only want to retain current tenants, but you also want to attract potential tenants by showing them that you care about the appearance of your rental property.

Lap siding consists of long and narrow boards that residential remodeling contractors nail horizontally in a pattern that overlaps across the exterior of your home. The symmetrical appearance of lap siding makes it one of the most popular types of siding used by contractors that work on residential projects.

Contrast of Colors

If you have heard the descriptive word “pop” when it comes to a rental property’s appearance, you know the word is used to describe a structure that stands out for the right reasons in the neighborhood. Although subtle siding colors allow other features of your rental property to stand out, using contrasting colored siding makes a bold design statement that your tenants will love. For example, using a bold blue against a more neutral gray makes siding one of the featured design elements of your rental property.

Consider Other Structures

Selecting colors for siding that match the design elements of other structures in the neighborhood can help your tenants feel like they belong to a community. You do not have to find an exact match for siding, just siding that complements the appearance of other structures in the neighborhood. This strategy also applies to the appearance of landscaping. For example, if a neighbor cultivates a colorful garden, you should consider installing brightly colored siding to match the ambiance generated by your neighbor’s plant and flowers.

When you choose siding for your rental property, remember to follow a few tips. First, look for low-maintenance siding, especially if you live in a climate that experiences harsh winter weather. Second, create a budget and stick with it. Third, take into account the region where your rental property is located. Exposure to cold, heat, sunlight, and moisture have different impacts on different parts of the nation.
