Home is where the heart is.  The outside of a home is just as important as the inside when it comes to maintenance and style.  Making sure things like the siding, fencing, and other areas are properly care for will go a long way towards the home value and comfort.

Finding local pros that can work on the exterior of a home is important. Quality house painters, siding experts, local pressure washers, and solar panel pros can all help make the exterior of the home even better.  Angie's List does recommend getting at least 3 estimates before starting any exterior work on the home. 

Whether you're making minor repairs or starting a major remodeling project, the work begins with pulling the right permits. (Photo by Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Daniel G.)
