Years of rain, wind, sun, and snow mean that every so often your home will need a little attention. The elements are hard on the exterior of your building, and eventually, the signs of this stress will be obvious.
The curb appeal of your home is important if you are looking to sell, touching up a fixer-upper, or maintaining their homes for the long run. The exterior is the first this that people notice when approaching your home, and the integrity of the exterior is important to keep the house in good shape.
A beautiful home is something to be proud of and investing in the exterior of your home will make you a happier homeowner. Here are a few home exterior upgrades that will jump-start your curb appeal.
There are nearly limitless ways to increase your home’s curb appeal and add a little bit of character. Many of these aesthetic enhancements, such as the addition of high-quality window film, come with performance benefits as well.
A fresh coat of paint is one of the simplest ways to increase the curb appeal of your home, and make sure that the siding and trim are well protected form the elements. First impressions of your home are made before anyone sets foot inside; a beautiful coat of paint and some fresh siding will have visitors excited to see inside.
Install Window Film
Windows are often focal points of a home’s exterior appeal. The ability to see inside a home from the outside is a privacy concern for those who live in the home, and a serious turn off for potential buyers. A professional window film company can help you find the product that is right for your needs. There are many potential benefits of window film including increased privacy, UV protection, glare reduction, increased energy efficiency, improved safety, and increased curb appeal.
Driveway and Sidewalk Repairs
Sidewalks, pathways, and driveways are assaulted from above and below: Severe temperature fluctuations from sun and snow team up with pressure from weeds and roots, quickly leading to cracks and uneven surfaces. Damaged driveways and sidewalks can damage car tires and are hazardous for people at night – especially children on bikes and scooter, or the elderly. A professional service can repair your driveway or sidewalk. Consider using materials like slate or brick to increase appeal.
Tidy the Garden
Landscaping is the equivalent of giving your home a fresh haircut – even a simple trim can make a dramatic difference in how your home looks. Simply pruning, mowing, and trimming will give your home a well-maintained character. For the ambitious, or those with a green thumb, the addition of flower beds and potted plants add splashes of colour that can elegantly compliment your home. For a serious overhaul, professional landscapers can give your property a balanced design.
