An exterior renovation can be a great way to boost your home’s curb appeal, and reverse lots of normal wear and tear that happens over time. But what should you focus on when planning your exterior renovation to get the best return on your investment? Find out in this article from Dash Builders now.
Mix big impact changes into your exterior renovation
Big impact changes can have a great return on investment. For example, adding new exterior siding to replace worn-out siding can completely change the appearance of your home. It’ll bring new life to your property and make it more desirable. It can also positively impact heating/cooling costs for the house, depending on the materials used.
Other changes you can consider include a new garage door, adding a new stone or brick facade, or creating a new entrance door or grand entryway that will completely change the curb appeal of your home.
You can work with an experienced contractor like Dash Builders to plan these kinds of impactful changes, and determine which ones are right for your home.
Creating unique, functional outdoor spaces
This is another important area to focus on. Decks, patios, outdoor kitchens, and other such outdoor living spaces can add a lot of appeal and value to your home. It’s estimated that these kinds of outdoor projects usually increase the value of your home by 82% of the project cost.
Not only that, but outdoor living spaces are a great place for you and your family to relax and take in the outdoors when the weather is nice in Winnipeg.
Increase functionality when completing exterior renovations
Don’t overlook function for form. Functional exterior renovations – such as a new roof or new windows – are also an important part of an exterior renovation. Investing in these kinds of functional, structural updates is a great way to add value to your home.
Recently, we completed an exterior renovation for a customer. Part of the task at hand allowed us to increase the functionality of the exterior of the home. Some of our solutions involved expanding the front porch and adding LED lighting and white PVC material on the step’s edge for maximum visibility, even in the dark. We also completed the exterior renovation for their garage. This included a large side door that looks over the rest of the backyard space.

Buyers are more likely to be interested in your home when these kinds of major renovations have been made recently. This is because they know they won’t have to update the roof, windows, doors, siding and other surfaces for a long time after they purchase.
