How Exterior Renovations Boost The Curb Appeal Of Your Home

Exterior renovations can give your home a whole new look and maximize curb appeal. What works for you will depend on your specific needs and circumstances, but knowing more about exterior renovations can help you make informed decisions about home improvement projects. The team at Garden State Brickface & Siding has you covered – these ideas for exterior home renovations and curb appeal tips can help turn your home into a showstopper.

Exterior Projects That Increase Curb Appeal

It’s easy to get so used to your house that you don’t notice little things that can make it look unkempt or lead to problems down the road. Improving curb appeal with exterior renovations can boost the enjoyment you get out of your home, add value, and make it easier to sell when it’s time to put it on the market. Whether you want to make a plan on a grand scale and do a total makeover of your home’s exterior or have a smaller project in mind, anything that improves the appearance of your home is a win if it’s done right.


Painting is an affordable way to add curb appeal to the exterior of your home.  A fresh coat of quality paint can make your house look clean and fresh. Contrasting trim, shutters, flower boxes, doors, and touches like new hardware and molding can really make your house pop and won’t break the bank. When looking for painting contractors, hiring someone with experience is a must to ensure your home looks its best.

Replacing or Repairing Stairs and Walkways

The entranceways to your home take a beating and can become cracked or damaged over time. There are many different materials that can be used to repair and resurface stairs and walkways, including concrete, brickface, stone veneer, stoneface, stucco, and more. Some of these materials can also be used to repair or resurface your chimney, which can make it more attractive, functional, and durable.

Adding A Retaining Wall

There are quite a few different ways retaining walls can be used to enhance curb appeal and create a space where you’ll want to hang out and entertain friends and family. The possibilities are limitless – retaining walls can be used to create a patio, seating, more usable space, and to enhance a focal point or separate garden beds.

Replacing Siding

Old siding can make your home look weathered and drab. Vinyl siding, manufactured stone veneer, stucco, brickface, and other siding materials and projects can give your home a makeover while making it more energy-efficient and well protected from the elements. Mixing different types of siding materials and styles enables you to create unique designs that truly make your home one-of-a-kind.

Replacement Windows

New windows are also a great way to improve the look of your home and cut down on heating and cooling costs. With tons of colors, materials, and varieties to choose from, you can find replacement windows that reflect your personal style and give your home panache. Another curb appeal tip? Replacing your front door can’t hurt, either.

New Gutters

Rusted, damaged, or old gutters and downspouts can be an eyesore and result in water damage to your home. Having an experienced professional come and clean or replace your gutters can ensure water is draining away from your home properly and keep it looking great.

Roof Replacement

An aging roof can take away from the beauty of your home and lead to problems like sagging, leaks, and the growth of moss and vegetation. Even if it isn’t damaged, replacing your roof before something goes wrong can help you avoid a lot of costly headaches and make your home look fabulous from any angle.
