6 simple ways to transform your home’s exterior

Do you want your home to stand out from the crowd? Do you want an attractive exterior which is the envy of your neighbours? The exterior of your home is often one of the most overlooked areas when it comes to home improvements. But caring for your home’s exterior is just as important as interior upkeep.

At Dolphin Windows, we want to help you to improve the outside of your home. Here are 6 simple ways to transform your home’s exterior.

1. Update windows

Reap the benefits of a window upgrade with Dolphin Windows. With a modern window replacement, your home will look fresh and new, and inside you will benefit from a warmer safer home. Choose from casement, sash, tilt ‘n’ turn, bay or bow, coloured, or timber alternative windows. Whatever your property style, we have the perfect windows for you.

2. Landscape garden

Landscaping your garden is an easy way to enhance your living area and add value to your property. Choose an attractive durable material such as slate or decorative gravel for a low maintenance garden. Alternatively, you could create a lush green space with ornamental hedges, plants, and a useful decking area. A tidy and professionally landscaped garden will transform your home’s exterior without breaking the bank.

3. Paint exterior

Any exterior woodwork or rendered walls need regular painting. Painting the exterior of your home will immediately breathe life into any property. Don’t be scared to try out different colours either. Have a look around your neighbourhood for inspiration to see what shades would suit your home.

4. Cladding

When the exterior brickwork of your property is looking tired and faded, why not add an extra layer to your home. Timber or stone cladding provides an attractive and durable finish; it also provides a protective layer to prevent weather damage and deterioration of your property’s walls.

5. Roofline

Improve your home’s exterior aesthetic by updating your roofline. Fascias, soffits, guttering and bargeboards are now usually made from uPVC, so the maintenance of timber is no longer a consideration. Choose black or white to complement your existing property. Upgrade your roofline and you will protect your attic space from water ingress and any resulting damp problems well into the future.
