5 Ways to Add Curb Appeal to Your Home


It’s springtime! Boosting your property value can feel like a daunting task, but if you’re willing to get your hands a little dirty it can actually be fun and cost effective!

Here are our tips and tricks.


1. Paint the Front Door Make a statement! Bold red, yellow and blues add excitement to the exterior of your home. Have an older home? Cleaning and re-staining an old wood door will rejuvenate the exterior as well.


2. Pave the Way

Lay some pretty pavement to welcome your guests. Building a walkway and/or patio with brick or paving stones can take your curb appeal to the next level.


3. Dramatize the Details

Use contrasting colors to draw attention to beautiful and unique details like brackets, shutters, moldings or even window sashes!


4. Build a Porch

A new or remodeled porch will give your house the facelift it needs! Try an entry porch, but for a more dramatic look build a porch that extends across the entire facade.


5. Add Dormers (Gable Dormer Pictured)

Increase the value of your home and make the interior and exterior more interesting by adding a dormer! Dormers create usable square footage and window openings for your home. Different types of dormers compliment different styles of architecture so you can pick the perfect one to suit your homes exterior (and we can help!).
