Spring your exteriors to life with these simple, seasonal tips

The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and the sun is contemplating showing its face. Spring has sprung indeed, and along with the budding blooms and chirping birds, your home is greeting the new season. But how can you ensure your house is dressed and ready for the months ahead? The following top tips will cover just how you can Spring to life your exteriors!

Spend some time improving your garden
You’ll likely be enjoying plenty of BBQs with friends as the warmer weather approaches, so turn your garden into an abode you’ll be eager to show off! Rid yourself of weeds, plant some appealing new flowers and dust off your outdoor furniture. For even more natural ambiance, string some lights or lanterns.

Repair and protect
The harshness of winter can leave your exteriors in need of some TLC, asap. Cracks, holes, grime and any other damage caused over the past few months should be promptly repaired before heading into the new season. Additionally, protect your home from future impairment with quality products. Consistent care and maintenance is the best way to ensure your home is always looking beautiful and functioning as it should. It will also help you avoid costly expenses in the future.

Work on your curb appeal
This season will see all the houses in the neighbourhood showcasing their springtime best. Liven things up in the front of your house by repainting your door and trim (a bright new colour—if you dare!), re-paving your driveway, and/or adding some decorative flare (think floral wreaths and topiaries).

Get your paint game on
The friendlier weather provides the perfect opportunity to treat your home to a fresh coat of paint. Nothing says “bring on the springtime” more than a perfectly painted exterior. Your brick and masonry has seen it’s fair share of rain this winter, so give it the attention it deserves with a quality coat that will make certain it’s protected as well as looking gorgeous.

Clean your windows
Springtime means you’ll want to be observing the beauty of Mother Nature (instead of hibernating indoors wondering why it can be so cruel). Make the most out of the sights of the season by ensuring your windows are clean, operating efficiently (warm breezes here we come!) and looking good. Rid your frames of grime and dirt so that you can have the best possible view of the best time of the year.
