Everyone can understand the beauty of historic buildings, well manicured landscaping, or ornate trim work on a home; but for businesses and homeowners, improving the look of the outside of your building can feel like you are just throwing money away. Although you may not love the appearance of your structure, it’s hard to justify spending a large chunk of profits or savings for a ‘vain’ facade change. In reality however, the exterior of your home or business can drastically change the value of the building itself.
Improve the value of your building
A new building facade, or simple landscaping/ maintenance can change the overall curb appeal of your property. Some estimates place curb appeal for determining up to a 15% increase in the asking price for a property!
