The exterior of your house is the first thing people see when they walk up to your home, so it’s important to make a good impression. Curb appeal ranks high these days, and luckily your exterior can get a complete facelift with a few simple upgrades! The best part? Every time you arrive home, you get to enjoy the look of your house, and you’ll be proud to show it off to anyone who visits. Plus, you’re adding a great deal of value by renovating your exterior.
We often focus on renovating the inside of our homes, but that shouldn’t be the only part of your house that gets your love and care. Your home exterior is just as important, especially if it’s starting to look run down. Gentek offers a large variation of products to help take your exterior from drab to stunning. From gorgeous siding to beautiful windows and doors, a few quick fixes can make a world of a difference. With options like vinyl siding, specialty siding, detailed trims, and a full array of exterior colour options, there are plenty of ways to completely customize your home to your desired style.

Lutes Before & After
While the charm of this lake house remains intact, the renovation created a fresh, clean finish. The Storm Siding cleans up the two-toned red and white that once was, while new windows give it a crisper look. The white painted door and window edges give the exterior a light, airy feel, and the new front door with decorative glass provides privacy with aesthetics in mind.
Erving Before & After
Although these renovations didn’t require a ton of changes, the upgrades made a huge impact. The thick, white siding was replaced with Pebble Siding, and white accents around the windows. They also got rid of the green shutters on the top floor, creating a cleaner look. The entire back and sides of the house were covered in Pebble Siding to create a unified, refreshed feel. The charm of the brick remains untouched, while the siding gives the exterior a much-needed upgrade.
Orford Before & After
This home was renovated from head to toe in Windswept Smoke Siding. Dark grey siding is the go-to colour from many homeowners, and you can see how it makes the home look much more contemporary and less run down. Sometimes a house with good bones just needs a little re-vamp and that’s exactly what was done with this beauty. The Windswept Smoke shade provides contrast with the white roof, where it blended in before.
