The best thing about outdoor home renovations and updates is that you don’t have to break the bank to get results. There are many simple and cost-effective ways to give your home’s exterior a facelift and improve your home’s worth as well as its appeal. They include:
Affordable Outdoor Renovations For Your Wellington Home
1. Renovate the driveway
Repairing your worn driveway through patching, resurfacing or replacing will enhance the aesthetics and curb appeal of your property. Concrete driveways Wellington contractors offer an extensive selection of concrete resurfacing products and solutions that you can take advantage of to transform your outdoors. Depending on your needs, there are many options for resurfacing your drive.
If you already have a concrete driveway that is either new or old, you can resurface it with a decorative or coloured concrete re-surfacing system. Decorative and coloured concrete systems come in a wide range of colours and stencil patterns and can turn your grey, dull worn-out driveway into a beautifully coloured and textured masterpiece.
But, it’s worth noting that resurfacing is more of a decorative process rather than an installation that provides an actual structural overlay. It can only be applied in a situation where the existing concrete driveway is still structurally sound.
If your driveway is extensively damaged or worn out, you may need to hire earth movers Wellington providers to completely rip it out so you can install a new one. This may be a bit costly and time-consuming.
Another option for rejuvenating your driveway is using asphalt paving. Asphalt is extremely cost-effective, durable and versatile. With this option, you can choose to resurface existing asphalt driveways, have patching done to repair specific problem areas, or have a new asphalt driveway installed.
2. Build a path
Well-designed designed paths will definitely make your home feel warm and inviting. If you already have a concrete path, consider applying a decorative concrete resurfacer to enjoy a dramatic improvement to your curb appeal. Concrete driveways Wellington contractors offer concrete and asphalt path repairs and installations, and can provide you with expert advice on garden path design, installation and repair.
3. Build a deck
Decks add great appeal with extra living space, and a charming deck acts as a magnet for home buyers. Make sure to hire earth movers Wellington experts to take care of your earthmoving and excavation needs during deck building. These professionals can also help you with acquiring a building permit and ensuring your new build meets building codes requirements.
4. Install outdoor lighting
Properly planned and installed outdoor lighting can add interest, drama and safety to your home’s exterior. Installing landscape lighting along your concrete paths should also be an integral part of your outdoor lighting plan.
5. Give your garage a facelift
A garage renovation project will enhance the look of your home while adding curb appeal to attract potential buyers and appease the neighbours. Consider repainting or replacing your old garage door with a new one to enhance the look of your home. Don’t forget to tidy up the insides, as well.
6. Update your hardware
Replacing your old, rusty entry door knobs, door locks, mailbox, light fixtures and other hardware will automatically transform the look of your home’s exterior.
7. Repair and repaint the exterior cladding
Any obvious defects, such as dirty, cracked paint or rotting cladding material can downgrade the aesthetics of your home and turn away potential buyers. So, make sure any defects on the exterior walls of your house are repaired, and look for ways to add personality with colour.
8. Upgrade the front door and windows
Installing a new front door and stylish windows will instantly boost your home’s appearance and greatly increase its resale value.
9. Renovate your entryway
The front entry is the first thing guests see when they visit your home. Consider renovations that will enhance your front entry, such as constructing a beautiful path, adding a new coat of bold paint, strategically placing attractive container plants and flowers, installing colourful tile steps, and adding decorative brackets, moldings, columns, etc.
10. Roof renewal
The roof accounts for about 40% of your home’s look from the curb, so consider roof renewal projects such as cleaning, roofing repairs or recoating to keep your house and its curb appeal looking their best.
