Boost Kerb Appeal With Weathershield
A new study commissioned by Dulux Weathershield reveals that UK homeowners can increase the perceived value of their home by a quarter simply by adding a lick of paint to its exterior, as Brits expect to pay 23% more for a freshly painted property.
Despite the big difference a small change can make, on average, Brits have not painted the outside of their home for ten years, with one in four not having painted the exterior for more than 20 years. When it comes to kerb appeal and making a good impression, the research shows that us Brits think we should pay more attention to the maintenance of our home exteriors. Here's the proof:
