Are you looking to add some value to your home? Maybe you’ve done the inside up all fancy, and have little room for any extensions – what can you do? Well, you can focus on the exterior sides of your house, and how you can improve them!
So let’s get into just a few of the best value exterior renovations, whether you’re thinking of selling or simply want to make your home a little bit more luxurious. The main thing all these exterior elements have in common is that they add a protective layer to your four walls, which makes them worth a lot of money in the eye of the real estate market!
Insulating Your Attic
Your attic is a big part of your house, just above your ceiling and below your roof, and there’s some prime real estate opportunity up there! If you’re someone who doesn’t fancy adding in a loft extension, or you don’t have the money to, simply getting some new insulation in the walls of your attic can work wonders for your home and its value.
Adding Siding Around Your Home
Siding makes a big difference in how your home looks, how waterproof it is, how it can hold up against strong winds in the winter, and ultimately, how clean and tidy the exterior walls are. Brick walls can get scuffed and marked very easily, and they can be hard to scrub down as well. But when you have siding to coat them in, you’re going to find it a lot easier to craft a well put together impression of the house you live in.
And it doesn’t have to be expensive to renovate your house like this either. There’s plenty of places you can find a good vinyl siding contractor without it costing you an arm or a leg, and the work can be done in the space of a week as well. You won’t have to block your garden or your driveway off for too long, especially as the summer is on its way and the kids want to be outside!
Replacing Your Front Door
And the frame it’s in! Your front door is the entrance way to your home, and it’s the first impression people are going to get from the house you live in. Apart from the curb appeal you’ve already spent lots of time and money crafting to perfection, the door a guest has to knock on to be let in is going to paint a thousand words to them.
So if you’ve got an old door, made of wood and showing its age, or you’ve got a uPVC type door that’s now off white in its color, be sure to get it taken out and new put in. Get a steel frame to suit it in as well, to help your door stand strong against any of the outside elements, and to make it just a bit warmer and safer inside your house too.
