This spring give your home the care it’s been lacking. There’s no better time to update your home’s exterior than in the warm, fresh days of April through May. If you’re lacking inspiration or merely unsure of where to get started, we’d like to inspire you with a few projects that can make your home appear brand new, giving it extra curb appeal.
Project #1: Replace faulty windows. If your windows are cracked, chipped, or jammed in more than one area, it may be time to replace. While a few maintenance jobs might be able to fix cracked frames if there’s a serious condensation problem you could unknowingly be gathering mold around the corners. This type of mold could easily spread to other parts of the home. Our suggestion is to replace these windows with new, energy-efficient styles to match your home’s overall design.
Project #2: Update your front door. An outdated door can age your home by up to ten years. What’s worse is older doors tend to rattle, shift, or similar to fault windows — experience trouble with ventilation. If you’re tired of coming home to a troublesome and dreadful-looking door, then why not update it? Your door is the first thing people see when they approach your home. Depending on the color and style you select, you can convey a welcoming, joyful, or harmonious message to guests.
Project #3: Fix broken gates. There are several reasons to fix a broken gate. For one, it could mean the difference of your dog having a safe outdoor space to play without the fear of running away. Another reason is to add and extra layer of security to protect against intruders. Moreover, a sagging gate can be inconvenient when you’re hosting a backyard party and want to it as an entryway. Updating your home’s gates will solve these and other problems while adding a fresh touch to its exterior. You should consider selecting a new style that complements your new front door.
Final tip. This year, the trend for windows and doors is to find styles that can increase your home’s energy-efficiency. This will allow for more of the right light to come while sealing openings to prevent overheating during warmer days, allowing you to save on the cost of air conditioning. As for home gates, you can never go wrong with a style that complements the rest of the exterior. Ultimately, the safety and security of your home are what matters most.
