Chip Gaines is opening up about the number one mistake that new homeowners often make: skimping on the exterior.
The Fixer Upper star, 47, sat down for a recent interview with PureWow. While discussing his and Joanna’s all-new collection with James Hardie, he explained why exteriors are worth the investment. Although new homeowners want to cut costs wherever possible, Gaines revealed that the exterior is the one area that shouldn’t be subject to a tight budget because it needs to be durable to last.
“If you’re going to make the investment, it’s important that you choose quality because exterior is even harder than interior because you’ve got the elements,” he told PureWow.
