One-Hour Exterior Home Upgrade Projects
Try looking at Fypon products. Fypon has a variety of one-hour “out-of-the-box-and-onto-the-home” products that can help add curb appeal to your home’s exterior.
Constructed of durable urethane, Fypon® products are lightweight and easy to install, making these projects ideal for many do-it-yourselfers. Each decorative piece comes pre-primed and resists insect infestations, rot, decay and moisture, making for long-term low-maintenance of these home enhancements.
Start-to-finish, here’s what you can achieve in about one hour:
Exterior House Upgrade: Project 1
Make your entryway more welcoming with an elegant door surround. Start with fluted pilasters on either side of the door and then top the door with a crosshead or decorative pediment — try a rams head, sunburst, acorn or peaked cap style.
Update Window Trim: Project 2
Trim out the exterior windows facing the street. Use crossheads for over a window and top with a solid, decorative or recessed panel keystone accent piece. On the sides and below the window, use moulding pieces with plinth blocks in the corners to eliminate miter cuts.
Accent A Bay Window: Project 3
Accent a bay window with a window panel. Raised panels add dimension and style to the exterior of the home while resisting moisture, rot and insects.
Fypon pieces come pre-primed, ready for installation. All products need to be glued and nailed or screwed to the wall, then painted to your preference.
Exterior House Upgrade: Project 4
Replace an older, rotting wooden louver with a low-maintenance urethane louver. Fypon offers both functional louvers that have a noncorrosive fiberglass screen backing to keep insects out while allowing maximum airflow to enter the attic and non-functioning decorative louvers.
Install Window Shutters: Project 5
Flank the windows on the front of your home with easy-care urethane shutters. Choose from a selection of louvered, raised panel or plank shutters. Paint or stain the pre-primed shutters to complement any home exterior.
Add a Gable Pediment: Project 6
If your home has a Victorian style, add a gable pediment to accent the home’s exterior.
Install a Fypon Trellis System: Project 7
Don’t forget the garage. Invest a bit longer than an hour and you can install a Fypon PVC Trellis System kit to accent a single or double garage door. Each kit includes outlookers reinforced with PVC for durability, attractive beams, lattice and hardware needed to complete the job.
Wrap Posts with Fypon Column Wrap: Project 8
Cover up unsightly wooden posts with a Fypon PVC Column Wrap. The semi-assembled, two-piece wrap classic style wrap installs in just 15 minutes.
Use Lattice Wisely: Project 9
Use crosshatch or square decorative panels made out of lightweight urethane to serve as see-through “gates” to keep pets and children separated from prized flowers and bushes.
Update the Front Door: Project 10
Your home’s front entry is the focal point of its curb appeal. Your front door with a new quality door or paint it. Make a statement by giving it a bold blast of color that makes your house stick out. Make sure you match the color in with the rest of your house colors.
