Coming towards your house, what are you thinking? If you’re thinking your house is in need of a serious facelift, then there’s no better time than the present to get on with it. In a couple of simple steps you can give your house a complete makeover, without breaking the bank.
Decide on your colour scheme
Before you attack your exteriors, think about the mood you want to create. If your exteriors are looking old and dull, you may want to consider a brighter colour. Bear in mind any restrictions on colour choices you may have on your property, check with the local council or your building management if you’re not sure! Even if you can’t go crazy, you can choose a colour that carefully rejuvenates and makes your house look good as new. Classic colours and pastel colours can look incredibly charming!
Treat your bare masonry exteriors
If you’re only just thinking about giving your house a facelift, it’s likely you’ve not paid attention to your exterior surfaces for a while. There may be areas of bare masonry (concrete, stone, brick, etc.) that you don’t want to paint because you want to keep the natural appearance of it. That’s fine, but don’t ignore these areas as they still need help protecting themselves from the elements. We recommend you grab some Sikagard 740 W for these areas. This ready to use product is a one part, low viscosity, reactive impregnation for concrete and similar substrates. Sikagard 740 W is essentially a hard working sealant, that has fantastic water-repellent properties and is great for moisture control. If you use this, your surfaces will last longer as they are protected from rain and splashes which can lead to issues!
Decorate your exterior
Decoration can be the most exciting part, where your property really starts to come alive. But, for your house to look like it’s had a facelift and stay that way, you’ll need to use a product that’s going to perform for you.
