Spring is the perfect time to give your home’s exterior a much-needed refresh. The sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and everyone is ready to spend more time outside. If you’re looking to improve your home’s exterior for spring, here are some ideas to get you started.
Inspect Your Roof
Winter weather can take a toll on your roof, so it’s important to inspect it for any damage. Look for any missing or damaged shingles, and repair them as soon as possible. Also, check your flashing and chimney to ensure they are securely in place. Of course, to get the best and most accurate inspection, you should hire a professional roofing company to take a look. At George J. Keller, we offer a yearly inspection and maintenance serviced based on the age of your roof. Ask us about our maintenance service.
Add Some Color
Nothing says spring like vibrant, eye-catching colors. Consider painting your front door, shutters, or trim in a bright and bold hue to give your home a fresh and welcoming look. You can also add colorful planters or hang some colorful outdoor art to add some personality to your home’s exterior.
Upgrade Your Lighting
Updating your home’s outdoor lighting is a great way to enhance both its functionality and appearance. Consider adding some solar-powered lights to your walkway or landscape, or installing new sconces or overhead lighting fixtures to highlight your home’s architecture.
Clean Your Gutters
Spring showers bring May flowers, but they can also bring clogged gutters. Ensure that your gutters are in good condition by cleaning them out before the rainy season starts. This will help prevent water damage to your home’s exterior and keep your property looking tidy.
Refresh Your Landscaping
Take advantage of the warm weather by updating your landscaping. Plant some new flowers or shrubs, trim your trees and hedges, and add some mulch to your flower beds. You can also consider adding some decorative features like a new fountain or a garden bench to create a relaxing outdoor space.
Clean Your Windows
Winter weather can leave behind a lot of dirt and grime on your windows. Clean them inside and out for a clearer view and to let in more natural light. This will also help your home look brighter and more welcoming. Having trouble getting those old windows clean? It may be time to replace them. Ask us about our window replacements.
In conclusion, improving your home’s exterior for spring doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. By incorporating some of these simple ideas, you can give your home a fresh new look and create an inviting outdoor space that you’ll enjoy all season long.
