If you want to add some value to your home prior to a sale or simply to enjoy for the foreseeable future, these exterior home upgrades will bring you the best return on your investment.
Whether you’re thinking about selling your house or you just want to enjoy it a little bit more, there are many upgrades you can make on the exterior of your home that will bring you a great return on your investment.
The first thing to focus on should be your siding, which can get dirty simply from natural wear and tear from the elements. Renting a pressure washer to clean off your siding can make a world of difference.
Next, take a look at your roof and the shingle material. Wood shakes or composite shingles can come off the roof without you even noticing. We always recommend having a roofing professional come out to your home every few years to make sure it’s in good shape. If you need a new roof, replacing it will make a huge difference in your curb appeal and moisture protection.
The third major thing to focus on is the cement around the house. If your driveway or sidewalks are cracked, you have two options. You can either replace the section that’s cracked or just caulk the cracked areas, which can make a huge difference.
Finally, look into any deck or patio repairs you might need. Wood decks can start to look aged just a couple years after being installed and some planks can even split or fall off. Having the deck or patio pressure washed and re-stained will not only make it look better, it will make the wood last longer.
