Springtime is the perfect time to show your home’s exterior some love. Exterior improvements can not only make your home look better but could also boost its home value.

Let’s look at some of the best exterior renovations you should consider this spring.

Elevate your entry

If you want to make a great first impression, your entryway needs to look its best. If you have a patio or front yard courtyard, it’s very important that the space looks clean and modern.

This space will be one of the first things guests see, so ensuring it is welcoming will set the tone for the rest of your home. Plus, you’ll enjoy spending time in this space more once it gets a makeover.

Starting with the flooring, stamped concrete or brick pavers create a versatile and durable base to decorate the rest of your space around. These materials are also easy to walk on and won’t cause additional slip or trip risks.

You’ll also want a decent-sized seating area where you can relax and enjoy some time outdoors. During the spring and summer, including potted plants to give the space some color will go a long way.

Replace shabby siding

If the siding on your home looks a little beat up, replacing it is a great exterior improvement to consider. Not only does siding make a home look nice, but it also has many safety benefits.

Siding protects your home from the elements and prevents moisture from seeping in, which could eventually cause structural damage, rot, and mold. It keeps your home insulated year-round, which will reduce your utility bills.

There are quite a few types of siding you can choose from. One of the most popular types of siding is vinyl. Vinyl siding comes in many styles, is fire resistant, and is cost-effective, so you can stretch your budget further.

Another great option is brick. Brick siding is timeless and a more environmentally friendly option. This long-lasting option will make your home’s exterior look amazing. Regardless of the type of siding you choose, you can look forward to an improved appearance and an increased home value.

Doors make a big difference

Two of the biggest “bang for your buck” exterior improvements are the garage doors and the front door. The front door should make a statement since it is one of the first things someone notices about a house.

Updating your door to something more modern, adding color to an existing door, or opting for a timeless wood door with intricate details will add character to your home while improving its value.

The garage door is another important exterior component of your home. An old door not only makes a home look dated, maybe even run down, but it may also pose safety issues.

Newer garage doors provide more security for the home since they are more difficult to enter, and you won’t run the risk of them malfunctioning, either.
