Curb Appeal 101: Exterior Home Refacing and Renovation
Some homes have it, some don’t. Curb appeal is an integral part of the success of your home, be it on the market, or just in general. A well maintained, well done exterior can be the key to maintaining your home’s curb appeal. If you have stucco from the 70’s on the outside of your house that hasn’t ever been changed, perhaps it’s time to call in the professionals for exterior renovation. Here are the ways in which you can make the outside of your home look as great as the inside.
Refacing and renovation of old, shabby exteriors.
Install new tile, brick, stucco or stone in modern, appealing patterns. Your home’s exterior adds significantly to the overall curb appeal and value of your home, renovation of the outside of your home will allow you to maximize the stylistic potential of your home. Prefacing and renovation of exteriors is a simple process which for a dedicated company well versed in current design trends, will leave your home’s exterior looking like new. Consult with a designer to find the perfect blend of materials you would like to see used to reface the exterior of your home.
Install new doors and windows.
A good looking exterior can only go so far in contributing to your home’s style. Old, rusting, inefficient doors and windows not only detract from your home’s appearance, they are also a cause for inflated heating and air conditioning bills. Older windows and doors develop air leaks which in turn cause drafts, temperature fluctuation and higher energy bills. Installing new, energy efficient windows will not only save your money on energy in the long run, but pair stylistically with the style of your home’s exterior.
Invest in colour.
While modern homes tend to be monochromatic, a dab of colour can produce an effect that will make your home stand out from the others on the street. Interesting wood, brick or stucco colours and patterns can help a drab, common looking home, feel like an architectural masterpiece.
A well maintained driveway goes a long way.
Poorly maintained landscaping is the first thing people see when they look at your house. The state of your driveway, stairs, porch and sidewalk is a key indicator of the time and effort a home owner invests in their house.
Remember to mow the lawn.
Whether you invest in landscaping or garden yourself, a well maintained garden will add colour and vibrancy to your home.
