Summer is a great time to start thinking about your home’s curb appeal. Whether you are interested in preparing your home to sell or in welcoming summer guests into your space, spring and summer are the perfect months to tackle some exterior projects sure to up your home’s aesthetic! Here are a few of our favorite “appealing” projects: Edge Your Driveway: Edging the border of your driveway with materials such as brick, pavers, or stone can give it a finished look. Edging can be installed with the drive or elevated. To enhance visual interest, decorative elements such as contrasting colors, texture, or design can be incorproated into the edging as well. Upgrade Your Hardware: Your home’s detailing can help to define your family’s style and be an integral part of a visitor’s first impression. Ideally your exterior hardware will work collaboratively, as opposed to pieces of a mismatched finish. Replace house numbers, mailboxes, front door locksets, and entryway lighting with a cohesive set. Replace Your Garage Doors: On most homes, due to their front and center placement, garage doors have a commanding presence. Thus, updating your home’s garage doors or replacing a dilapidated set can dramatically improve your home’s appearance. The range of models available on the market today will allow you to choose from a variety of materials, colors, and styles, making it easy to find the perfect door for every home. In addition, an updated garage door can improve both your home’s security and energy efficiency. Renew Paint Or Trim: For a complete transformation, consider an exterior facelift by adding a new coat of paint or stain. A fresh coat of paint will hide all obvious defects including faded colors, cracks in the trim, and loose or flaking paint. In addition, a quality coat of paint will help to protect your home’s siding, extending its life and value. Are you ready to get started on your home exterior projects?
