Change Colours!

An easy way to increase the value of your home!

Do you like the colours on the outside of your home? What I mean by that, do you like the colour of your siding or brickwork? How about those shutters? What about your garage door? Does it match the rest of your home?

The reason I ask is that we recently did a complete eavestroughing, soffits and fascia installation on a home in Port Perry, but we also made recommendations that improved the look of their home 100%, and the owners are extremely happy!

They were not pleased with all their red brick and the pink accents, so I suggested to highlight things up a bit with a “terra bronze” that would tone down the pink tones in the brick. Well, they loved it so much that they decided to have their siding and shutter repainted and re-done as well… all in terra bronze.

You can see the changes in the photos below. It really did make all the difference in the world… not only that, but the value of their home just went up!

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

At True North Eavestroughing we take pride in all our work and our customers’ homes, every step of the way!
