The term value can mean something different to everyone with one person seeing it as adding a few more digits on to the price tag of your home, while others may view it as adding value for yourself and your own personal enjoyment however we can all agree that adding value is enhancing something, making it better and improving every single aspect of it. From having a totally unique bespoke kitchens, to quality double glazing windows.

So when it comes to the exterior of your home, how should you actually go about adding this extra value? There are many different options at your disposal; however as experts in all things exteriors here at GLS Windows, we have put together this small blog to show off some of the sure-fire hits to give you a little bit of inspiration if you’re aiming to boost value this season.

Doors to Adore

Just like a fireplace in your front room, the exterior doors of your home will instantly draw the eye and become the focal point of your property for any passers-by (or if you are looking to sell), any potential buyers.

As you can see from the pictures of our previous work above, we have a wide range of doors available throughout Leicester and the surrounding areas to suit any home enhancing both the front and back with a door that will welcome them in instead of turn them away. A new door can be a great treat for yourself too, as walking through a downtrodden door each day can be disheartening, while a bright, clean and safe door can fill you with pride.

Windows that Frame your Home Perfectly

Of course, it’s the windows and doors that make up the quintessential exterior, so there’s no use updating your door if your windows aren’t in check too and once again, the pictures above show that our windows are able to perfectly match any doors and any style of home or commercial property.

Very similar to our doors, you can be safe in the knowledge that all of our double glazed windows are manufactured to the highest specifications, utilising the Swish 24-7 fully sculptured profile system with internally glazed 28mm glass sealed units. Not only do they look good, but they add value to a whole host of different areas!

Flowers for a Finishing Touch

Okay, so we’ve given you a quick overview of how to overhaul your exterior and add value to it (without even mentioning renovating your roof!), but now just for a quick tip that can be done while our team are installing your new door: trim the grass, get rid of weeds, and add some seasonal flowers to really dress up your home – trust the experts, you’ll be astounded at the results!
