Quick Fixes For Curb Appeal

How does your house look from the curb? After a long winter, chances are good it could use a refresher.

While you might be tempted to take on an HGTV-style renovation to get that coveted curb appeal, there are many smaller-scale projects any homeowner can do and still achieve great results.

“I like to start with the front porch,” says Stacy Marsilio, CKD, Choice Windows, Doors & More. “After a good cleaning, give it some personal charm with outdoor chairs, bright cushions, a colorful rug and a fun wreath on your door. Add a couple plants or hanging flowers and you’re done!”

Check out these curb appeal tips – ranging from no cost to moderate expense – that you can do on your next free weekend.

No expenseWindow-cleaning

  • clean your windows and glass door, inside and out
  • clean your outdoor light fixtures
  • remove cobwebs around the exterior
  • reduce the number of accessories in your yard and gardens. Less is more.

Low expensePainting-front-door

  • try a new color on shutters and/or door
  • plant flowers around your front entry
  • hang flowers and plants on your porch
  • paint flower pots, arrange on front steps
  • window boxes – buy them pre-assembled or build your own
  • add decorative pavers to a walkway

Moderate expenseInstalling-new-shutters

  • add mulch to your flower beds and around trees
  • put a bench or chairs on your porch, add decorative cushions for a pop of color
  • upgrade the house numbers on the front of your house
  • replace broken shutters
  • install a new mailbox
  • pressure wash your home’s exterior – rent a pressure washer for the day or hire a pro

We used Choice to redo our master bathroom and kitchen. They did a great job with the design and installation. The crew working in our home were professional and very skilled. They didn't take any short cuts and we didn't get extra charges after the initial proposal. I would definately use them again and recommend them.

Excellent!!! Chad and Ashley were personable and responsive. Matt did a perfect install of a sliding deck door. He was punctual, skilled, and neat. Couldn't have asked for more! Thank you!
