How do you restore your home’s exterior to its former beauty?
Over the years, a home can become tarnished and lose its beauty. The exterior is the most affected by this phenomenon, because of the weather and the sun. So how do you give your home’s exterior a facelift? Discover some simple, practical and not necessarily expensive tips.
Clean completely from the outside
Cleaning the walls, facades, roof, doors and windows can sometimes be enough to bring out the beauty of your home’s exterior. Indeed, dust tends to mask the paint and gives the exterior a dilapidated look. By getting rid of dust and dirt, your walls and roof will look great again.
If you want to do it yourself, use pressure washers that will make the job easier. Be sure to adjust the intensity of the pressure according to the material of the wall or facade. You can also leave the cleaning to well-equipped professionals.
Repainting the exterior
Sometimes cleaning the walls and roof is not enough. Once the dust and dirt are removed, you will notice that the paint has chipped in places. The only alternative is to repaint the entire exterior.
You can opt for a new color to give your home a facelift. Also, paint your roof differently from the old color.
Repairing weathered areas
Over the years, your roof, your walls, your doors and your windows end up being damaged. Repair cracks, replace windows and doors and replace weakened areas of your roof.
These repairs will not only serve to give your exterior a facelift, but will also strengthen your home and extend its longevity. Repair the damage as soon as you notice it to prevent it from spreading and minimize costs.
Taking care of the garden and the yard
Renovating your exterior also means renovating your garden and your entire yard. If you have a large or small outdoor space, you can hire a landscaper to create a green area that is pleasing to the eye.
Prune trees and shrubs and completely change the arrangement of flowers in your yard. This way, you’ll feel like new every time you see your exterior.
Create an outdoor living space
Finally, if you are planning to renovate the exterior of your home, you can create an outdoor living space. With a more or less usable area, imagination and budget, it is quite possible to build different structures to enjoy the sun.
Terrace, pergola or bay window extension of the house are practical and aesthetic solutions to bring a new touch to your house. Then install garden furniture and a barbecue and make it a living space during the nice days.
