Enhance the Exterior of Your Home

Enhance the Exterior of Your Home

The exterior of your home is as important as the interior, perhaps even more so if you’re considering selling your home. But there’s also nothing more pleasurable than arriving home after a long day to a beautifully kept property.


Many large and small changes can make your home more attractive and practical for you. Windows and doors are some enhancements you can make with a finite lifespan or you may opt to add more space and consider an extension or garden room. Here, we look at some ideas you could consider.


Before You Start


You may be under the impression that you can carry out many exterior renovation jobs yourself, but for some jobs it might be worth getting a professional to help you. A specialist design and build company, such as Dedicated Residential Construction could not only help you decide what renovations would benefit your home best, but they could also provide quality renovation services that are sure to be safely carried out and completed to a professional standard. Below, we provide some guidance on the renovations such a company could provide you with.


Windows and Doors


A simple lick of paint or a good clean may be enough, or you may be considering replacements or even a completely new look for your doors and windows. There are many great styles available to choose from. Changing the doors or windows on your home will give a fresh new look. It can add better security and increase the energy efficiency of your home too. 


If you want to enhance the look of your exterior further, a new entrance porch can be a practical and stunning addition to your home. Another option is to turn a window into a door – adding sliding or patio doors or even an opening wall of glass across your room can make a dramatic statement and bring the joy of your garden closer.


Patio or Decking


Adding a patio, decking or terrace will give you the chance to enjoy your garden more. You could opt to add lighting and heating or even a hot tub, making it a great place to entertain and relax. If weather is a concern, why not add a permanent shelter or gazebo to make it somewhere that you can use all year round?




Over the years, a roof can become a neglected aspect of your home. You may have replaced odd tiles over the years and have a jigsaw effect that does nothing for the look of your home and decided now is the time for a new roof or be considering a change to the roofline with a dormer or Velux windows. 


With a variety of roofing styles available, you can change the look of your home and carry out a vital renovation at the same time.

Adding an extension to your home is one of the larger jobs you may be considering and one where expert advice and services from a design and build construction company are certainly a wise choice to get you the best results. An extension not only adds valuable living space but could also add to your home’s value if done properly. 


Exterior Walls 


Adding cladding or concrete render to your walls will instantly update or refresh your home’s appearance with a modern or contemporary makeover.  If you have added to the footprint of your home with an extension, giving the whole exterior a matching look will help integrate the new build seamlessly into existing lines.


There are many charming exterior home enhancements that could bring the wow factor to your home – the only challenge is working out when to do the job yourself, and when to get the professionals in.
