Great Answers: How to easily upgrade the exterior of your homeMarch 31st, 2017 by
Spring has officially sprung.
Temperatures are rising, flowers are blooming, daylight is sticking around a little bit longer, and homeowners and renters alike are suddenly far more concerned with the exterior appearance of their home.
It’s no surprise curb appeal matters most in the spring – that’s real estate’s busiest season. But amping up your home’s exterior doesn’t always have to be a time-consuming, expensive ordeal. According to Houzz, simply mowing your lawn, power washing your siding, or planting new flowers or shrubs will instantly give your home a springtime facelift.
“A very quick and cost effective way to upgrade your home’s exterior is a cleaning and color change. Pressure wash to clean it up and paint the shutters and front door. They can remain the same color or pick a fresh new color. You can also take any old fixtures that have faded over time and paint the metal with a fresh satin or gloss paint – same with metal railings or metal awnings. Possibly a one day job with big results.”
Another Guildmember gave the following advice:
“Besides the painting, which can truly makeover the appearance of a home, I suggest professionally trimming/thinning out the trees and shrubs. Application of weed control and fertilizer to the lawn creates a healthy looking and attractive canvas. Then, add a dose of spring color annuals.”
