Low Maintenance Ways to Make Your Home Look Great on the Outside

A great looking home exterior is a point of pride for many homeowners and also helps to maintain and increase resale value. However, many homeowners are reluctant to tackle exterior home improvement projects, because they are worried that they will create the cause for a lot of maintenance work in the future. Although that might be true for many projects, there are a few impressive ways that you can make your home look great on the outside that will require little long-term maintenance.

Hardscaping creates permanent landscaping fixtures in your yard from cement, permanently placed stones, or other materials. Hardscaping is a great investment for people who do not want to have to maintain large portions of their landscaping. Some great examples of hardscaping are permanent outdoor fire pits, outdoor fireplaces, outdoor kitchens, and permanently installed walkways.

A New Front Door

A bright and updated front door can make all of the difference when it comes to the look of the front of your home. Doors come in many different styles and materials, many of which do not require much maintenance at all. However, if you want to update the look of your home in a cost-effective way you can paint your front door. This does require a little more maintenance in the long-run, but is a great way to get a lot of bang for your buck!

Rock Gardens

Landscaping is an important part of every home that often times requires a lot of hard work every season. However, with rock gardens, beautiful landscaping becomes much easier. Rock gardens are areas of rock displays mixed with low maintenance plants that make for a beautiful display that is enviable to any neighbor!

Great company to work with. Very professional, friendly and very attentive to details. You can definitely tell that the employees took pride in their work and the owner was very good at staying on top of all of the tasks at hand. Would highly recommend this company to anyone who's looking to have some home remodeling. Their prices were competitive but the overall product was much better than what other companies have delivered.

We had some flood damage in our basement and needed baseboards replaced. We worked with Jim who was super friendly and knowledgeable. He did the repairs quickly and for a very fair price. After the repairs he walked me through what he had done and explained everything. I will definitely use them in the future. it was a great experience from start to finish.
