What is an Exterior Facelift?

When people think of home renovations, their minds often jump to the interior. Bring up “home remodeling” and see how quickly the conversation turns to topics like making the most of a small guest bath, setting up a home office, or finally finishing up that unused basement space. If the subject of exterior work comes up at all, it’s unlikely to extend beyond landscaping or perhaps basic structural hardscaping (e.g., porches, decks, or driveways). When it does, exterior renovations usually only include maintenance tasks or as-needed repairs, such as replacing gutters, roofing, or perhaps repainting your siding.
