Creating Curb Appeal

Creating and maintaining an attractive visual appearance to your home and landscape is integral to curb appeal. Many people will never see beyond a “drive-by” view of your home. If you fail to make a good first impression, the interior of your home may be beautiful, but it will never impress the neighbors a potential homebuyer.

A Quality Front Door Enhances Curb Appeal

Your front door and entryway reflect the personality of the homeowner and the condition of the door is indicative of the care and maintenance the property receives. The front entry should be kept clean, tidy and well lighted.

A well-constructed solid front door adds to the curb appeal of a home while enhancing security. A solid front door helps to block and dampen outside noises, while keeping out cold drafts by providing a tight, weatherproof seal to enhance energy efficiency in the home.

When selecting windows for your home, be sure to factor in the cost of window coverings into your building or construction budget. Your choice of window coverings comes down to personal preference, but keep in mind that you may wish to choose blinds, shutters or draperies that

Choosing Windows For Your Home

When building or remodeling your home, your choice of windows represents a significant investment. You may feel a bit confused as there are so many different types of windows available on the market. It pays to do the research to find the best type for your application. Visit home and garden shows and your local window contractor’s showroom for ideas and inspiration.

A solid, long-term warranty from an established quality manufacturer and your budget should be considered when pricing different types of window applications. Choosing the right type of energy-efficient windows can save you a substantial amount of money over the years by reducing your home’s energy consumption. To save money, you may be wise to spend more initially to reap the long-term savings that quality windows afford.

Cut The Grass

A large part of the overall impression of your property is conveyed by the landscaping that surrounds it. If you grass is sparse, weedy and uncared for, it implies that the rest of the property is maintained in the same careless manner. A lush lawn with lots of greenery provided by trees and shrubs creates a cool and inviting oasis that encourages visitors to linger.

Remove The Clutter

No matter if your grass is mowed and the front steps are tidy, if you have old vehicles or sporting equipment parked in the driveway, or if that old basketball hoop you have meant to take down still disgraces the carport, your home will appear cluttered and unkempt.

Remember, you only have one chance to make a favorable first impression. Make sure it is a good one.
