As we look towards another year, many are considering what they can do around their home to improve its value and appearance. While some may be considering interior repairs such as a kitchen revamp, a little exterior attention can often get you the most bang for your buck. In fact, there are many cost-effective things you can do to the outside of your home to make it stand out in 2015. This year breathe new life into your property with these simple exterior upgrades and regular maintenance ideas.
Common home maintenance is a simple way to ensure a good-looking exterior in 2015. Routinely checking your roof, gutters and siding for repairs or replacement is an easy way to keep your home looking nice and neat all year long. Make the necessary repairs, and if needed, add a little touch-up paint along the way.
Doors and Windows
Over time, windows and doors can take a beating. If yours are looking tired and worn consider hiring a contractor to inspect and repair them. If within your budget, you may also want to consider upgrading your windows and doors. This can add huge value to the home while also making it more energy efficient.
Accessories and Upgrades
If you are looking to give your home more curb appeal in 2015 simple accessories may be the way to go. Here are some fixtures that can add life and character to your home: a weather vane on the roof, rain barrels for a green approach to landscaping, or an elegant finial. Other accessories or upgrades to consider in 2015 are ornate metal finishes such as copper flashings, galvanized or steel gutters, and replacing worn vinyl siding with rustic cedar siding.
