Ways to renovate the exterior of your property

Improving the outward appearance of a property can increase its value, saleability and can overall improve the look of the property. Even on a low budget, changes to the exterior of your property can make the world of difference from which can reap the long-term rewards.


For a house, there is a lot you can do; from new windows to adding a new porch to converting a garage! Find out all you need to know to improve the outside of your home, without breaking the bank but still adding value to your home.

Update your front door

Your front door is something everyone who comes to your house will see and base their first impression on – so make it nice! You could completely replace your front door, paint the original one or even just buy some new whistles and bells for it:

  • a new doorbell
  • a new number or name plate
  • a new door knocker

If you live on a road with other houses which look similar, you could go one of two ways. You could keep it neutral and try and match with the other houses, or you could opt for a brightly coloured door that doesn’t disturb or class with the uniform theme around your house too much, but still draws attention to the front of your house.


Add or update your porch


Similarly to a front door, the look and feel of a porch is extremely important as everyone will see it, and those who visit, will walk through it. Adding a porch creates character and has functional, storage qualities! It is especially worth considering adding a porch to a house which does not have a hallway, but rather opens up straight into a living area. 

Convert your garage


Converting your garage will open up a lot of opportunities for storage and new living space. The overall appearance of your house from the outside will also be altered, and will undoubtedly add value to it as long as you still have outside parking space provided, as a lack of parking can devalue your property. To do this you may need to hire architect to make sure the conversion runs smoothly and is done to the standard you wish it to be.

Top Tip: Think in advance of the area costs and things you will need! Something which you’ll need to think about when having work done on the outside of your property is scaffolding, for any renovations. All City Scaffolding claim that there is no project too big or too small for their expertise, so no matter the size of your house or what you are having done – it can be done, and done well!  As well, you should consider whether you need an architect or project manager on the job and what that would entail cost wise.
