As the summer weather is kicking in, it is the season to make your house exterior look the way you have always wanted to. There is no better time than now to get outside and get things done that you have put off in the past. Follow these 5 tips to make the rest of your neighborhood jealous of your home. 

Add A Little Pop With Your Front Door

When someone is looking at your house, one of the first things they are going to see is your front door. An old, rundown front door can immediately influence the look of the rest of your house. Add a fresh coat of paint to your current door and change the whole look of your house immediately. If you have a dark house, try using a brighter color that adds some contrast. Choose something you like and that goes with the style of your house. 

Redo Your Roof

This may not be the first thing you think about when you look at your house but it can make a drastic improvement to the overall look. Not only will redoing your roof improve the look of your house, but it will also increase the overall function. If you have shingles falling off or they are just wearing out, redoing your roof may be the step you need to take in improving your home exterior. While redoing your roof, also be sure to check the condition of your gutters because this is another practical fix that can improve the look of your home

Work On Your Lawn

Whether it is a simple cutting of the grass, adding pine straw, or trimming hedges, your lawn plays a huge factor in the look of your house. If your home has all of these, you should think about adding some flowers or some small plants. This will give your house a friendly, well-kept look that will go a long way when someone drives by or comes to your house. There is always something you can do to improve your lawn, so start now before it becomes too hot. 

Add Lighting

Adding lights is a very budget friendly improvement that gives you a lot of options. You can do anything from string lights to ground lights. There are many different ways that you can add lights, but you should be sure to have lights around your front door. This will give your guests a welcoming feel that will make them feel at home as soon as they drive up. Ground lights are also another great option that will highlight your house as a whole. 

New House Color

If you are looking for a big change, the best option could be completely changing the color of your house. This could be adding a fresh coat of paint to your brick or adding new vinyl siding on the whole exterior of your home. Changing the whole color of your home will be sure to catch people’s eyes and draw them in. It may not be the cheapest option, but if you are in need of a change as well as increasing the value of your home, this is a perfect option for you.
