Three Affordable Home Renovation Projects to Give Dirt, Dust, and Stains the Boot


If your home has stains from red clay, dirt, and age, you may be thinking about ways that you can improve it. Renovating things like masonry, concrete, siding, and wood fencing may be easier than you think. With services like residential pressure washing, you can improve a lot of the materials around your home and give them new life. Here are some affordable ways to renovate your home without replacing materials.

1. Cleaning Off Shingles with a Garden Hose and Mild Soap

If you have shingles on your roof, they can easily be stained with fungus. The roof of your home can be cleaned using a mild bleach and water solution. Apply the solution to the roof and use a garden hose to rinse it off after it dries. This will remove the stains on your roof and help prevent it from deteriorating and needing to be replaced. Some pressure washing services can do this for you, but will not use high-pressure water. If you do this yourself, do not use a pressure washer because it can damage roofing materials like asphalt shingles and wood shakes.

2. Changing the Colors of Your Home by Painting Window Trim and Cornices

Painting is another great way to give your home a unique look. This can be done to areas like window trim and cornice if your home has an exterior finish that does not need paint like brick. If you have pressure washing done, painting the trim and cornice can give your home a clean and new look.  If the paint is in good condition, the trim and cornice can also be cleaned when pressure washing is being done to other areas of your home.

3. Pressure Washing Masonry, Wood, and Concrete to Make It Look New Again

Building materials like wood, masonry and concrete can often be restored with pressure washing. This will remove stains and fungus on these materials to make them look like new again. Having this done to things like wood decks and fences can help to make them last longer by removing the fungus that is the primary cause of decay. You may want to have this done to wood features more often than brick and masonry.

These are some of the things that you can do to give your home a makeover without investing in expensive remodeling. If you need help with the restoration of materials around your home, contact a residential pressure washing service to give your home a brand new look.
