When you drive up to your home at the end of a long day, do you feel more repulsed than relieved? If so, it might be time for an exterior face lift to improve your home’s curb appeal.
Outdoor home improvement projects are great because, with minimal investment, you can make a very large impact on the part of your home that is most visible to the outside world. A fresh coat of paint on your siding, a little landscaping, or simple curb repairs in Coquitlam are all your home needs to go from blah to beautiful.
Tackle Exterior Repairs
Before you decide to paint over your problems, you should start your home improvement journey by addressing outstanding home maintenance projects you have been putting off. Driveway and curb repairs are two issues in Coquitlam that often get ignored by homeowners out of fear that they are enormous, expensive jobs. The truth is that unless there is something drastically wrong with your existing structure, driveway and curb repairs in Coquitlam are pretty straightforward, inexpensive fixes that will have a dramatic effect on the overall appearance of your home.
Ever noticed how much nicer your car looks after a run through the car wash? Pressure washing your home is just like that, only on a much larger scale. Once all the dirt, mold, and mildew have been removed from your windows and siding, you’ll immediately feel the difference. And not only will you feel better but maintaining the exterior of your home by keeping it clean can help prolong the life of your windows and siding; it’s a win-win situation.
If cleaning the outside of your home wasn’t impactful enough, you could consider having your home professionally painted. A fresh coat of paint can completely change the look and feel of your home for a fraction of the cost of replacing the siding.
Refresh Your Landscaping
If you already invested in repairing your curbs, you may want to consider updating your landscaping. Cleaning up your existing garden and adding some fresh features is a simple way to add colour and visual interest to your home without a significant investment.
Do Something Fun
Your home is your opportunity to express your personality. Don’t be afraid to add something that reflects your unique style. You could consider repainting your front door an exciting colour, replacing your exterior lighting or address numbers, or adding a distinctive feature or accent piece.
Freshening up the exterior of your home does not need to cost a lot, but it can have a significant impact on your property’s appearance and value. This summer is the right time to check off projects that have been lingering on your to-do list and King Services can help!
