Refreshing the exterior of your home is one of the most important things when it comes to boosting its resale value and increasing its customer appeal. Even if you intend to keep living here, it drastically improves your overall satisfaction with your home, which is a lifestyle boost that you both need and deserve. Fortunately, refreshing the exterior of your home (both its front and the back) is quite an easy task. Therefore, what you need to do is refresh the exterior of your home and here are four tips on how.
Pressure-wash the façade
There are several ways for you to make the most out of your home’s exterior and one of the most cost-effective ones is to just pressure wash the façade. All you have to do here is hire a decent pressure washer and use it to hose down dirt that has piled up and accumulated on the walls of the place over the course of years and decades. Without any exaggeration, you can literally wash off years and years of wear and tear from the façade at a minimum cost. Sure, you can also invest in rendering and cladding but this is incredibly expensive.
Building a perfect outdoor space
Even people who have the luxury of owning a great backyard, prefer to spend most of their time indoors. The reasons behind this are numerous but the simplest one is the fact that they just don’t have a suitable outdoor living space. A muddy patch of land with an improvised bench is hardly a satisfactory place where one can or should spend time, which is why it’s an issue that you need to resolve as soon as possible.
Constructing a great patio is a perfect idea for this. First, you get to pave a part of your property so that the mud is no longer an issue. If the budget allows it, going for a wooden deck construction would be an ideal solution. If not, you can always go for pea pebbles which will cost you roughly $6 per square foot. Then, you need some outdoor furniture, potentially even an outdoor rug and something to provide the shade.Tend to the landscaping
The next thing you need to keep in mind is the importance of your home’s landscaping. Needless to say, this is something that will have a serious impact on the resale value of the place and, as such, it’s something that deserves your full and undivided attention. Also, it will speak volumes about your characters, seeing as how neglected or poorly maintained lawn testifies about your own negligence and sends people a negative image about yourself. For those who don’t have the time or the patience for such vigilant landscaping, you can hire someone for your lawn care services and be done with it.
Pay attention to details
Previously, we’ve mostly focused on the importance of low-cost exterior improvements to your home. Well, the simplest way to actually achieve this is to actually dedicate yourself to details. For starters, you can replace your house number with a custom one. Second, you can replace your mailbox or even add a decorative wreath on your front door. The reason why we’re mentioning these suggestions is due to the fact that they can be installed in a matter of minutes, cost only a couple of dollars and make a world of a difference.
The very last thing you need to understand is the fact that neither of these projects requires too much work. It also doesn’t require you to vacate the premises or compromise your lifestyle in any way to complete it. All in all, the above-listed four tips are more than enough.
