Five Exterior Projects You Can Complete Within One Weekend

Weekends are precious, and if you’re hoping to beautify your exterior this spring, you’ll be looking for projects that are manageable as well as rewarding. Luckily, there are a variety of impactful projects that you can tackle in just a couple of days—or even just a few hours! In the following blog post, we’ll cover five exterior projects you can complete within one weekend.

Freshen up your front door and entryway: Your front door is the focal point of your home’s exterior, so why not give it a fresh coat of paint to make it pop? Choose a bold colour that complements your home’s aesthetic and adds some of your own personality to your entryway. Our range of quality Wood Paints means you’re guaranteed to find the formula that’s right for you in a colour you love. With proper preparation and a few hours of painting, you can transform your front door from drab to fab in no time. Additionally, consider adding some new accessories to create a stylish and welcoming entryway. Outdoor lighting fixtures, potted plants, a new knocker, fresh house numbers, or a welcome mat can also make a big impact with minimal effort.

Repair any damage to your walls: When it comes to maintaining the integrity of your home’s exterior, addressing cracks and holes promptly is vital in order to prevent them from escalating into more significant issues. By filling in fine cracks and holes before they have a chance to worsen, you can prevent moisture penetration, structural damage, and other costly issues down the line. Sandtex Ready Mixed Masonry Filler is the perfect solution for tackling these repairs effectively. With its easy-to-use formula and quick drying time of just one hour, this filler allows you to deal with exterior repairs swiftly, ensuring that your walls remain in optimal condition and ready for a fresh coat of paint if need be.

Revive your outdoor space: If you have a deck or patio that’s seen better days, a weekend is the perfect time to revive it. Transform your backyard into a tranquil retreat where you can unwind and entertain. Start by giving it a thorough cleaning to remove dirt, debris, and mildew. Our Fungicidal Wash is a ready to use solution for the treatment of organic growth on exterior walls, paths and patios. Kills mould, algae and fungal growth. Next, inspect the surface for any damage or wear and make any necessary repairs. Finally, apply a fresh coat of stain or sealant to protect and enhance the wood, and add some outdoor furniture and accessories—cushions, blankets, potted plants, etc—to create a cosy and inviting space you’ll love to spend time in!

Build a raised garden bed: Who wouldn’t love fresh produce right from their own home? Start your very own vegetable (or flower) garden by building a raised garden bed. Choose a sunny location in your outdoor space and start by building a simple frame using timber or composite materials. You can also purchase these frames in your local garden store if you don’t feel like making your own. Fill the bed with nutrient-rich soil and plant your favourite fruits, vegetables, or flowers. Raised garden beds will help make gardening easier while providing better drainage and soil aeration for healthier plants. If you want, use our exterior wood paints to decorate your new bed in a beautiful colour or design!

Install smart outdoor storage solutions: If you’re tired of cluttering up your garage or basement with outdoor equipment and tools, consider installing some outdoor storage solutions. A simple storage shed or deck box can provide a convenient place to store lawn mowers, gardening supplies, and outdoor toys, keeping them organised and out of sight. With easy-to-assemble options available, you can have your new storage solution up and running in just a weekend!

With above projects, you can make a big impact on your home’s functionality in just one weekend! Whatever project you choose to undertake, it’s sure to leave you feeling accomplished and your home looking its best.
