Whether your goal is to sell your home or simply make it the most beautiful on the block, increasing its curb appeal is an essential part of the process. Fortunately, boosting your home’s curb appeal doesn’t have to require thousands of dollars or hundreds of hours in labor. Four fairly simple steps can make a vast difference in your home’s appearance.
4 Curb Appeal Boosts
1. Front-door Face Lift
Give your front entrance some TLC. It doesn’t matter if you have three steps and a two-by-two concrete slab in front of your door, or a huge wrap-around porch. Either way, if it doesn’t look fresh and inviting, your curb appeal will lag.
- Paint your front door – A fresh coat of paint will make your entrance sparkle
- Add seasonal flowers – Plants make any space more inviting
- Put out a welcome mat – Or replace your old one
2. House Washing
Your home’s exterior takes quite a beating. Day to day dirt builds up. Over time, your exterior walls cover with grime. Most homeowners aren’t performing white-glove inspections on their siding, but if they did, they might be surprised. A deep layer of dirt can mute your siding’s color and create an overall dingy look to your home’s exterior.
A professional house washing can transform the look of your house. Your siding can look new again, vibrant with color and shine. Removing the accumulated dust and debris gives your home a fresh clean look.
3. Concrete Clean-up
Sidewalks, driveways, walkways, and patios often make up a large portion of what you see when you look at your home. If these are covered in spots, streaks, and soil, they are not adding to your curb appeal.
Having your concrete areas pressure washed will make a dramatic difference. Clearing away the muck with a professional pressure wash is a major curb appeal boost. Your walkways will look fresh and inviting; your patio pristine. You’ll be amazed at the change.
4. Window Washing
Sparkling glass provides much greater appeal from the curb than dirty, dingy windows. Grime-covered panes make a home appear old, worn down, and uninviting. Keeping your windows free from build-up will help your home look welcoming and new. To do this, schedule regular window washing.
Complete these four steps and your home will look like new. You’ll be ready to sell, or be the envy of the neighborhood, whichever goal you prefer. Either way, your curb appeal will be through the roof. The professionals at Central Window Cleaning are ready to help make this happen.
