Renovation Tip #17: Quick Exterior Fixes

Renovation Tip #17: Quick Exterior Fixes


Curb appeal doesn't have to be a huge to-do! Simple, well-thought-out changes and updates can make a big difference in the appearance and value of your home.

Some of our favourite quick fixes involve adding new plants and mulch to an existing garden bed. These inexpensive and simple changes pack a visual punch and are some of the first things that buyers see upon arrival. Adding mulch and planting some small shrubs that add visual intrigue can make the garden beds appear fuller.


Another quick fix is to pressure wash all sidewalks, driveways, porches and decks. This is one of the final things we do in a renovation, but is incredibly important! Landscaping will make little impact if the rest of the exterior looks unkempt and dirty. 


Lastly, a fresh coat of paint on the front door makes the home look updated and inviting! We added this fun, bright green colour to the front door of 6266 McGirr Rd. It complements the colour of the home and the surrounding greenery but stands out as a focal point of the home.
