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

Great sales staff, and crew! We gave Doug p a few challenges with our big job and they delivered! Gutters, new construction windows, siding, gutters. They also helped us design a new front porch addition. Completed on time and in budget. My first call on any new project will be to Jeremy!
