5 Tips to Refresh Your Home’s Exterior

Is it Time to Update Your Home’s Exterior?

They say there’s no place like home, and what better way to make it even better than by updating its exterior? Whether you’re planning to sell or just want to make your home look better, these five tips can help you transform your home’s exterior and increase its curb appeal: 

1. Update Your Roof and Siding 

Your home’s roof and siding are the foundation and most important aspects of your home’s exterior. They both serve essential functions in protecting your house and everything inside, so it’s crucial to ensure they are in tip-top shape. If the roofing system or siding is old and looking weathered, consider getting needed repairs done or starting fresh with a total replacement that will have you rest assured they are confidently protecting your home for years to come. 

2. Add Some Greenery

Plants and flowers are an easy way to refresh your home’s exterior quickly. Consider adding potted plants to your porch or window boxes overflowing with colorful flowers. If you don’t have the time or space for a full garden, hanging baskets or a few well-placed containers can also make a big impact.

3. Upgrade Your Lighting

Good lighting makes a big difference in the look and feel of your home’s exterior and can improve its security. Swap out old light fixtures with new ones, or add some solar lights along your walkway or driveway. You’ll be surprised at how much this simple upgrade can brighten your home’s exterior.

4. Power Wash Your Siding, Deck, and Driveway

Over time, your home’s exterior can get dirty and dingy, especially in areas like your driveway and deck. Proper power washing can remove years of build-up and make your home look brand new. To have your property power washed safely, please get in touch with a professional — such as the team at Cedar-Life.

5. Install Shutters or Window Boxes

Shutters and window boxes aren’t just cute decorations; they can also add depth and dimension to your home’s exterior. If you have plain windows, adding shutters can make them look larger and more grand. Window boxes filled with trailing vines or colorful flowers can also add a charming touch to your home’s exterior.
