A fresh coat of parging helps to beautify your home, while protecting the foundation from the damaging effects of Edmonton’s harsh climate. It’s also a relatively inexpensive way to freshen up the appearance of your home’s exterior and boost your curb appeal. In other words, it’s a good investment for your home. That brings to mind other projects one can do to spruce things up while getting a good bang for the buck. With that goal in mind, here are three valuable exterior home improvement decisions you can make to improve the look of your home.
Replace Exterior Siding
Granted, replacing the siding isn’t necessarily a cheap or easy project to take on, but it sure does help make an older home look brand new. In fact, with new looks available in siding, homeowners can achieve new textures, colours, and wood-grain looks. Modern siding finishes can overhaul the look of your home in a way that is on budget and very much on trend. Before you undertake this project, be sure to read our post on things to consider when replacing exterior finishes.
Upgrade Decks and Patios
In Edmonton, summer is a hard-won prize every year after a long winter. It’s no wonder we spend every spare moment outside when the weather is fair. That’s a lot easier to do if there is a nice deck or patio to retreat to at the end of the day. Installing a deck or patio, or refreshing an existing one, is a low-cost way to boost your home’s value AND your quality of life.
Changes to landscaping don’t have to be big to make a huge difference to the appearance of your home. Tidying up the yard or adding a few planters with low-maintenance plants and flowering shrubs can help turn a winter-worn space into a beautiful, inviting one in virtually no time at all.
Exterior finishes help to make your home an inviting space for all, and some of those finishes, like parging repairs, help to protect your home too.
