Methods of rejuvenation are important; whether it’s in the form of a massage, vacation or anything else that can help with reconnecting with yourself and relaxing is important to do it every now and again. However, the body isn’t the only thing in need of rejuvenating! Home rejuvenation is important.
Over time your home will go through a lot; being lived in will cause things to wear and require replacement. Here are some great considerations to help rejuvenate the home:
‘Maintenance or necessity
This includes improvements required because of the lifespan of building materials — roof shingles, window replacement, exterior painting or any repair required to the exterior to maintain a home’s integrity.
This type of renovation may or may not alter the appearance of a home significantly, but these improvements protect a home and help maintain its value well into the future.
Curb appeal or cosmetic
These can include something as simple as changing the exterior colours of a home (paint, siding), to something more complex like re-building entire elevations.
New exterior finishes are continuously being developed and homeowners are becoming more imaginative in their use of colours and styles of windows and building materials. An exterior renovation of this type can completely transform the appearance of a home without altering the interior whatsoever. Popular finishes including stucco, fibre cement siding, natural stone, manufactured stone and aluminum longboard siding provide a long-lasting, durable surface that will modernize the look of a home.
Aluminum soffit, fascia and eavestroughs can replace wood ones. This eliminates the painting cycle and will provide a maintenance- free finish.
Function or quality of life
This type of renovation includes patios, decks, social gathering areas, outdoor kitchens (currently hugely popular) hot tubs and swimming pools. Today many people forego purchasing a cottage or taking exotic vacations and instead choose to create a personal oasis in their own backyard. During the fair-weather months, this exterior space is considered by many families a getaway and an area to entertain family and friends. Covered patios can provide usable outdoor space when Mother Nature does not co-operate and a screened-in porch provides protection from the pesky bugs that annoy us at certain times.’ (Peder Madsen, lfpress.com)
