5 Simple Exterior Renovation Ideas
Exterior home renovations can improve a home’s appearance, but they’re also a great investment that can boost your property’s value. Below are five renovation ideas you can complete this summer.
- Remove Dirt
A power washer can remove years of dirt and grime from exterior siding, garage doors, paved paths and driveways and even windows.
- Work on the Landscaping
Tall plants and shrubs are great for hiding water meters, air conditioners and even neighbouring houses.Prune overgrown trees for the most polished look. Tend to flowerbeds by topping them up with soil and adding flowers for a dash of inviting colour.
Adding a new coat of paint can work wonders to freshen up the outside of a house. If it’s your aluminum siding in need of a facelift, use a low-luster, acrylic exterior paint .
- Replace the Shutters
Look for shutter styles that complement your home’s exterior architecture, and consider a bold color to really make them stand out.
A new address plaque, mailbox or garden accent can bring charm and personality to a house. Adding a new exterior light can modernize an old home and help visitors see your house in the dark.
