Doing house renovations can get expensive, especially when it comes to the exterior of your house.
Your home exterior is what 99% of people see. People might drive past, or the postman might deliver your parcels, but only a select few will actually step inside. This is why you want your home exterior to look nice. So how can you improve it without spending the earth? You need to think about improving your windows and doors. I only recently heard about window and door spraying and I’m seriously considering it.
When me and Jay bought our house, we hated the look on the outside (still do, because much hasn’t changed on the exterior). We’ve got white uPVC windows which isn’t too bad, however the sills underneath the windows are brown, as is the front door. I hate our front door and windows, but instead of getting them replaced, I could simply get them sprayed. If we can get improving our windows and doors, our house will sell much more easily. We want the outside to look inviting and modern, and this is a great way to do so.
What is window spraying?
The spraying means you can transform the look of your home (inside and out) by having your windows sprayed a different colour. A company like The Restoration Group will come in, fully clean your windows, spray them in your chosen colour and then check over their work.
You can choose from a large variety of colours, and have your windows transformed in a day.
Why should you do it?
Improving your windows and doors by getting them replaced can cost you a few thousand pounds. I was honestly shocked when I looked at the price of standard uPVC double glazed windows. They cost how much?! Choosing to spray them instead can save you up to 80% of the cost of completely replacing your fittings!
Replacing windows can also get messy as your home is opened up to the elements. You’ll need scaffolding to hold everything up whilst they’re replaced, which adds even more cost. However, spray painting your windows and doors means no building work or mess, and they are fully dry after 24 hours.
Most companies will also offer a 10-year guarantee. If you’re like me, you might have thought, How long will it last? Will the paint peel in the rain? Well it shouldn’t do, and if it does, then you’re covered for a few years.
Luckily, there are various companies who are here to save the day. The Restoration Group have done plenty of work like this in the past, so check out their process and enquire! I’m definitely intrigued to see if we can get our windows and doors to finally match up and improve our curb appeal.
