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

Since we were so impressed with the service, installation and quality of our sliding door some years ago, we knew we wanted to contact Choice again when we were ready to remodel our kitchen.The entire team at Choice genuinely cared about our project as if it was their own home. Multiple staff members checked in on us during the temporary business shutdown due to COVID-19 which occurred mid-project.It was a pleasure working with Choice and we are very pleased with the results. They made our satisfaction a priority, and we are grateful for the relationships that were built along the way.

Top tier service from Doug, Jason, and Barry. Lonnie in the service department is a respectable guy also.
