8. How much maintenance are you up for?
Different facades require different levels of maintenance, depending on the materials and finishes used. How will they react to the elements, and how often will you have to treat, clean or paint them. For example, stained timber window frames look fabulous, however they will require more upkeep than aluminium windows. Your builder can advise what will work best for you and your lifestyle.
9. Does landscaping have an impact on the facade you choose?
While strictly speaking, it’s not part of the facade, landscaping can certainly have a huge impact on the street appeal of your home. Planting can enhance, complement, and soften architectural lines and surfaces to achieve a fabulous overall look. Make sure you choose plants that reflect your facade’s style. For example, if you go for a coastal-inspired facade, choose plants that suit this theme.
10. Is it worth spending a little more?
Facade prices vary depending on a number of factors including the materials and finishes used and installation costs. While sticking to your budget is important, the facade is not the place to start skimping. It’s worth spending a little extra to achieve maximum street appeal. Remember, creating a quality facade now can have a huge impact on the resale value of your property should you decide to sell in the future.
Can you mix ‘n’ match layouts and facades?
You found a display home layout you love, but the façade isn’t really your style. Fortunately, most builders offer a selection of facades for each home design, so you can choose one that suits your style. For example, Hallmark Homes offer more than 10 different facade options you can mix and match with the home design of your choice. From Classic and Coastal to Hamptons and Metro, you’re sure to find a facade that’s perfect for you.
