Add new windows and doors to your property and this creates an abundance of kerb appeal. Buyers like to see good quality double glazing and smartly presented entranceways, UPVC frames and composite door solutions will certainly give your home added value.
What other things can you do to give your home roadside appeal though?
Some of these suggestions should work.
Grab attention with a feature gate
Gates are great for creating a positive first impression. Carefully choose a style that suits the architecture of your home and impress future buyers with your taste. Sliding metal gates suit modern properties, whilst automated wooden gates look exceptional on country homes. Pick gates that reflect the period of the property and turn up the style stakes straight away.
Paint and point as required
Flaky paintwork is one of the last things buyers want to see. The same goes for weathered brickwork as well. Spruce up the exterior of your property, re-point brickwork and add paint where necessary to create the look of a well-tended property.
Create a welcoming approach
Consider the driveway, the path, and the steps to the front door. Sweep leaves and fallen debris away. Powerwash the area if necessary to remove moss, algae and stains, then clear anything away that might be contributing to a cluttered look. Touch up railings with a fresh coat of paint, and if you have a porch or veranda, make sure this is well kept and free from unsightly items.
Add a little lighting
Tasteful lighting either side of your front door can be an impressive feature and it’s nice to look at too. Don’t stop there though. Use feature lighting to carefully bring the garden to life, this is a good visual effect if you are welcoming visitors to the property at dusk.
Keep on top of maintenance
Clean windows, attend to dislodged guttering, fix loose or slipping tiles and create the impression this is a well-tendered for home. Buyers like to see a property they can move straight into, one that has been lovingly cared for by their previous owners, keep on top of the maintenance and this is exactly the impression you create.
Numerous ploys can be adopted to give your home kerb appeal. Add new windows and doors and this isn’t a bad place to start!
