    Kerb Appeal: Does Your Home Have It?

    Rolferfor water proofing rooftop.

    First impressions count when it comes to home, and whether you’re trying to sell your property or just impress visitors, there are many things you can do to give a positive impression. Estate agents often call this ‘kerb appeal’, which basically means the impression that your house gives from the outside. This can involve lots of factors, from whether the house looks well-maintained, perhaps with a nice roof coating to make the roof look like new, to decorative touches such as plants and pretty landscaping. So, what steps can you take to boost the kerb appeal of your home?

    Exterior maintenance

    Any part of your home that’s poorly maintained will soon stand out for all the wrong reasons, but you don’t need to spend a lot of money to get it looking like new. For example, roof coating systems are an easy way to upgrade your roof, making it look newly-installed, while also protecting your home. Some other maintenance jobs you could consider include:

    • Wall coatings – both attractive and add protection to your home
    • Jet washing your brickwork and pathways
    • Cleaning your windows
    • Paint your front door
    • Replacing gutters and flashing

    Just a few small jobs can bring your home up to date, making sure it is at its best and looks well looked after.

    Light the exterior of your home

    Exterior lights aren’t just for Christmas. A few tastefully placed lights can showcase your home and make it noticeable from the street, ideal for when you are trying to sell. Once your roof coating has been applied and your home is looking at its best, adding some small exterior lights along the pathway, or framing your front door, can transform your house into a show home.

    Clear a path

    When people pull up to your home, there needs to be a clear path to the front door, so make sure your pathway is tidy with raked leaves and trimmed hedges. If you don’t have a proper path, install one, it can make a big difference to your home. If you’ve made improvements such as adding a roof repair coating, it’s much easier to appreciate these upgrades when the façade of your house is clear and clean, and its nice to come home to.

    Get planting

    While many people have paved over their front gardens to provide more parking space, it’s worth trying to fit some plants in the space if you can. Even some small flowerbeds can make a big difference to your kerb appeal, and it makes your house seem homelier and loved. If you’re trying to sell your home, it makes it more likely people will want to see what’s inside.

    How Roof Coatings Protect Your Home All Year Round

    The British weather can be unpredictable, and you often don’t know what’s going to happen from one season to the next. That’s why a properly sealed roof is so important, ensuring that whether it’s a heatwave or snow day, your home is safe from leaks, damp or more. If you’re thinking of installing a roof repair coating, this can be done year-round, and there’s lots of advantages that’ll benefit your home in different weathers. Here are some of the ways roof coatings can work in different seasons.

    Spring

    Weather in the spring can vary a lot, from sunny days to icy patches, but it’s safe to say that the season will usually bring a lot of rain. A waterproof roof coating can therefore be handy in the springtime, protecting your home in case of excessive rain which can:

    • Help you avoid leaks
    • Help prevent damp in your loft
    • Keeping your home feeling cosy
    • Preventing the spread of moss which can thrive in spring

    No matter what kind of spring is forecast, having a roof coating can make a big difference to your home, protecting you from all sorts of weathers.

    Summer

    Most of us don’t think our homes needs much protection in the summer. After all, what kind of damage can the sun do? But with the UK experiencing more heatwaves, using roof coating systems will no doubt become more popular. They can help reflect the sun’s strongest rays, which gives a cooling effect to your home on the hottest days, so you don’t have to spend as much running fans.

    Autumn

    Like spring, the autumn months can be changeable, sometimes they can be crisp and dry, but they can often bring large amounts of rain. During the autumn, you also have to deal with large amounts of debris such as falling leaves and branches, so it’s important to check your guttering isn’t blocked, as this can lead to a damp roof. If you have any gaps, a roof coating repair can help fill them in, ensuring your roof is well-sealed in case of any sudden, massive downpours.

    Winter

    Winter is the season that often gets homeowners concerned about their roof, and it’s worth getting it checked over before the worst of the weather hits. If your roof is in poor condition, then a roof coating can make a big difference, helping to insulate your home and protect it from the cold. When used alongside proper insulation, this can help you save money on your energy bills and also ensure you’re more comfortable even in weather such as snow. Melting snow and ice can also mean leaks, so it’s important your roof is well protected with the right coating.
