Outdoor House Projects: The Best Bang For Your Buck
With summer officially here, many of us are excited to get out to spend more time in our yards, polish up our green thumbs, and let our lives freely spill out the back door. Sprucing up your outdoor entertaining space not only helps make it enjoyable for daily use, it can help increase your home’s value. Below are a few of the most effective ways to gussy up your outdoor space while adding to your home’s value.
Add Some Color
Liven up walkways, flower gardens, patios, porches, and decks with color. From planters to perennials, shrubs to spruces; adding color and interest can not only make your yard more inviting, but help create a welcoming and enjoyable space to kick up your feet.
Stain Your Deck or Porch
A deck or porch is a big part of your home’s outdoor appeal. We often hear, “If I’m going to live in SunCrest, I want to enjoy the view!” What better way than sitting on the deck or porch? Wood decks need regular care to keep them looking their best and to help protect the wood, or you might consider using a manufactured product like Trex for for less maintenance.
Put In a Patio
Take a deep breath. It’s probably not as daunting as it sounds. Bricks, pavers, and stone patios are long lasting, require little maintenance, and do not necessarily require any special cutting or fitting. Adding a patio can create an extension of the indoor space and provide a place for BBQ’s, book reading, or breathing our cool mountain air.
Touch Up Stucco, Siding, and The Roof
If shingles are missing or curling, stucco severely cracked, or siding and trim weathered from the winter, these are not only visual eyesores, they could also lead to further damage. Preventive maintenance is key!
While big projects like remodeling bathrooms or a complete kitchen overhaul are popular ways to increase a home’s value, something as simple as updating landscaping and curb appeal can have a quick impact on a home’s value without breaking the bank. If you’re wondering can be the best way to add your home’s outdoor appeal, contact us today!
