Simple Outdoor Home Updates

The arrival of spring means warmer weather and more time outdoors. Whether you’ve purchased your first house or been in your dream home for years, it’s always fun to switch things up by making simple outdoor updates. Making these quick changes will make all the difference.

Change out your address plaque

Some neighborhoods require a uniformed address plaque on all homes, but most times, you’re able to switch it out as you please! This is a fun way to personalize your home and there are plenty of options for you to choose from. Home improvement stores like The Home Depot, Wayfair and Frontgate always have address plaques in stock, or try a more customized design from Etsy!

Wear-in a new welcome mat

It’s the first thing your friends, family and neighbors see when they walk up to your home. So, it’s time to trash the old rag you have greeting visitors and invest in a bright, new welcome mat! If you’re into more traditional matts, try Bed Bath & Beyond, where you’ll find welcome mats with simple, yet classic, designs. Or, if you’re a little more quirky, a simple search for “Funny Door Mats” will result in pages upon pages of results!

Curb Appeal.

Once the weather warms up, stop by your local home improvement store and make some updates to your landscaping. First impressions are key, so really wow potential buyers right off the bat!

Windows.

Do your windows need replacing? Right now, homebuyers are looking for energy efficient homes and one way to accomplish this is by installing energy efficient windows. Newly replaced windows that help reduce energy bills are a huge selling point for potential buyers. At Tri-State Home Improvement, you get a double warranty on windows which means it transfers to the next owner!

Roof.

Before selling your house, your home will go through an inspection and they will undoubtedly look at your roof to make sure it’s in good overall condition. The inspector will want to know when it was last replaced and will take a serious look at the structure to make sure it’s sturdy and doesn’t have any leaks. While this is a more costly home update, it may very well be necessary to attract buyers. Depending on the material, most roofs need to be replaced anywhere between 20 to 50 years.
