Most homeowners have a general sense of what they need to maintain & upkeep in order to keep their home functioning properly, but many overlook details that could enhance the aesthetic appeal of their home’s exterior. Putting a small amount of extra effort into minor details is what will make you look at your home with pride, and increase its value should you decide to sell now or in the future. Check out these tips for where to pay extra attention to your home’s exterior.
Outdoor Living Space
An outdoor living area will enhance your time spent at your home, as well as increase the property value & appeal to future buyers. You might decide to upgrade your living space with a deck or patio, a pool, or even an outdoor kitchen! What you ultimately choose depends on a multitude of factors including your property’s layout, the space available, your desires, and your budget. If you have an existing outdoor structure, be sure to maintain it well. Decks can easily begin to rot or tiled patios chip when they are not properly maintained.
Landscaping is the first step of curb appeal, and whether it is for yourself & visitors or for market value, curb appeal can never hurt! Flowers and mulch are an easy fix for many homes, as well as reseeding & watering your grass to attain a lusciously green lawn in the warmer weather. Many homeowners choose to plant trees around their property to add some more greenery and create shade. In the winter, be sure that your snow removal doesn’t dig up parts of grass or damage other pieces of your landscape design.
Roof & Gutters
An updated roof gives your entire home a crisp & refreshed appearance, while an outdated one is just as noticeable. If your roof is growing moss or rot, shingles are missing, or you are noticing leaks, it is time for a refresher. Additionally, gutters being properly attached & properly styled add even more appeal, as well as functionality. Regardless of their appearance, if your gutters are not functioning properly, this will lead to water damage to your roof & other parts of the home. Gutters are the aesthetic finishing touch but the functional backbone of any roofing system! For professional & reliable results, a professional gutter company is the only place to turn.
