Can the exterior of this house be modernized?
Green Tea
June 7, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Can the exterior of this house be changed so that it looks more modern or is it hopeless? What do you think it would cost? Some options:

- Repaint just the siding
- Repaint stucco and siding
- Paint or restain the wooden accents
- Stain some stones
- Remove and rebuild stone

- HOA limits our options. Modern variants nearby have gray paint/stone already. Stucco veneer over stone probably wouldn't fly.
- Paint is elastomeric over stucco. Not sure if we can paint over it or if we'd need to remove it first.

This looks like a newer home and wouldn't be a wise investment to change something that aren't broken.

Yikes, what a mishmash of materials and colors. I hate to ask but what color are the garage doors? I think the thing that bothers me is the brown wood. I would paint them all charcoal color. Some landscaping will also help, like some shrubbery near the entry
