Inside and out, the right home improvement projects can positively impact a home’s value. During National Curb Appeal Month in August, Daich Coatings shines a spotlight on easy DIY projects that can help transform your home’s exterior.
Real Stone Finishes
Part of the joy of home improvement projects is seeing instant results. When you tackle DIY projects, the results are instantaneous.
Outside the home, our SpreadStone™ Decorative Concrete Resurfacing Kit locks a new stone surface onto older, aging concrete. The DIY project is ideal for porches, steps, patios, walkways and even garage floors. A specialized applicator for achieving stunning decorative results is included, making it easy for anyone to apply.
Currently available in five color finishes, the versatile pre-mixed SpreadStone stone coating resists cracks, impact, abrasions and chemicals. The product rolls on easily over a primed seamless or stenciled surface. After the first coat dries, a second coat in a different color may be applied to create a unique color distinction.
Easy as Painting
Daich Coatings offers a variety of other DIY products that can be used to help add curb appeal to your home’s exterior.
RollerRock, which requires no primer, comes in 15 colors and provides a clean, speckled stone appearance. A Stone Texture Roller helps any homeowner achieve a rustic, textured stone anti-slip surface. Two coats of RollerRock are recommended about three to four hours apart, followed by a clear sealer the next day.
Terrazzo can also be applied with a Stone Texture Roller and requires no primer and, in many cases, no sealer. The lightly-textured decorative slip-resistant formula is fully pre-mixed and comes in ivory, tan or grey. For a very quick and easy standing trowel application, you may also consider SpreadRock® stone coating. Applied from a comfortable standing position using a squeegee, this product provides an elegantly authentic speckled granite coating ideal for porches, steps, walkways and entrances.
SpreadRock can be applied to both horizontal and vertical surfaces, making it ideal for foundation and retaining walls. Any of seven colors may be put on after a primer has been applied. Hi-Build Ultra Clear Coat should be added as a topcoat the next day.
Along with providing you with an enhanced exterior to view every day, curb appeal changes can also help if you’re selling a home.
“Making positive changes to your home almost always has payback,” says realtor Vincent A. Stanson, a REALTOR® associate with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services. “It doesn’t matter if you’re making changes for your own personal enjoyment or as enticements to sell a property. When you upgrade any aspect of your home it results in positive return on investment.”
