Top 5 Tips to Improve the Exterior of Your Home This Spring

As we’ve just about got over the worst of the winter weather and spring is on its way, we all start to venture outside again. Unfortunately, chances are that the long, wet and rather chilly winter will have taken its toll on our home’s exterior and you’d be forgiven if your garden isn’t quite looking its best.

Here at Beacon Garage Doors we’re passionate about helping you make the exterior of your home look the best it can be which is why we’ve put together our top 5 tips to get your home looking great for spring:

1.    Windows

They’ve been battered by the endless rain and after a long winter, your windows are likely to be absolutely filthy.

Do the insides yourself and call in the window cleaners to sort out the outside. How do you expect to let in spring’s natural sunlight with dirty windows?

2.    Garage Door

The condition of your garage door will have a huge effect on the overall look of your home and if it’s old and dilapidated then your whole home can look tatty and neglected.

If it’s a simple matter of a broken part then always get it repaired as soon as possible. However, if it’s beyond repair then you should consider replacing your garage door to improve the appearance and security of your home.

3.    Driveway

Before you scoff and move on to the next tip, we’re not suggesting that you redo your entire driveway. The likelihood hood is that it just needs a bloomin’ good clean! It’s time to get the high pressure jet washer out and put your back into it.

A beautifully clean, gleaming driveway is just what your home needs to stand out this spring.

4.    Guttering

Maintaining your guttering is less about aesthetics and more about practicality; it’s not a nice job but it’s got to be done.

Over the winter a lot of leaves and debris can become stuck in your guttering and now that spring’s rolled around, it’s time to sort it out. You don’t have to do it yourself though and if you don’t fancy getting up the ladder then call in the professionals.

5.    Garden

Your garden will have taken the brunt of the extreme weather that we’ve been having so it’s time to get stuck in.

A lot of plants are fairly resilient and return to their former glory in the spring but if some have been damaged beyond repair then pop to your local garden centre and pick up some colourful plants to bring some life back into your garden.
