You spent weeks, months, or even years finding your perfect home. Now that you have it, it's important to take care of it! Of course, decorating the inside to your personality is key. But what about the outside of your home? It's the first impression people see as they walk or drive by. Do you want it to reflect you and your personality?
Your home shelters you from the cold, keeps you and your belongings dry, and hides you away from harsh sun rays. So, we think the outside deserves some attention too. Trotter Roofing and Gutters has come up with 5 ways to give your home the facelift it deserves!
1. Updating your roof
An updated roof has many benefits. Not only does it prevent you from experiencing leaks or unwanted drafts, but it can give your home a major aesthetic change, too! You can choose the design, material, and color to fit you and your home's character perfectly. This facelift is a big project that comes with big results. Raising the value of your home and ensuring your peace of mind are also a couple of advantages to this enhancement.
2. Pressure Washing
With all the great things the outside of the home does for you, it also experiences the brunt of harsh weather, animal encounters, and general wear and tear. Pressure washing your home is a simple way to get rid of unsightly stains and give your home a clean, fresh appearance. Pressure washing also gets rid of any surface-level mold and mildew which prevents it from traveling to the inside of your home.
3. New Driveway and Sidewalks
The driveway is usually at the forefront of your home and is reflective of the care of the house. Over time, water can seep into the concrete, which freezes and unfreezes as the weather changes. This can cause cracks, bumps, and breaks in your driveway and sidewalks. Not only is this unattractive, but it can travel to the foundation of your home resulting in unsafe conditions.
4. Cleaning Your Gutters
Regular maintenance and cleaning of your gutters keep your home looking nice and presentable from every angle. It can also help prevent any water from puddling up and running off onto your home, which encourages mold growth. This is such a simple fix that makes a huge difference!
5. Outdoor Hardscapes
This facelift tip is especially useful if you love having company over, hosting parties, or if you have a family who likes to spend time outdoors! A useful, beautiful hardscape can range from a full outdoor fireplace and chimney for bonfires to a few steppingstones for easy access around the outside of your home.
