The Best Exterior Upgrades for Your Home

The exterior appearance of your home is as important as the interior, maybe even more important if you want to put your property on the market – after all, it is the exterior side of your building envelope that your potential buyers will see first. If you are currently looking for upgrades that are easy to do, affordable and make a huge difference, here are some tips for you:

  • Cleaning and adding a fresh coat of paint – whether you have masonry walls or your exterior walls are covered in siding panels, removing all the dirt from the surface and repainting the walls is an upgrade that you can do yourself. If the siding panels cannot be painted, stick to cleaning, then inspect them to see whether there are any panels that need repair or replacement and do the replacement, you may even want to consider a Topeka Roofing project;
  • Install planters – flowers add a touch of freshness and coziness to any building. Choose suitably sized planters and pick some plant varieties that are attractive, but not very labor-intensive;
  • Tend to your fencing and gate – cleaning and refreshing the appearance of your fence and entry gate is another easy and efficient upgrade. Check the fence and the door for damage, such as rust, rot, loose components and missing fasteners and take care of the repairs – the process will help you transform the fencing from shabby to classy.
