Let in the Sunshine
One of the simplest yet impactful fix-ups for every home is making the windows sparkle and shine, inviting the powerful rays of sunlight indoors and rinsing the dust and grease away.
Fix Up the Front Door
Front doors are also a major component in the perception of those who come into contact with your home. Make it the best that it could possibly be with some fresh varnish or paint, flowers and gleaming glass.
Get Rid of Rotted Wood
Sometimes a simple spruce up isn’t enough, when damage to the wood on your house’s exterior is too far gone and rot has set in. Don’t worry—using the right tools and materials, you can make rot disappear, and fend off more damage.
Repair bad Roof
Nothing is perhaps more unsightly than a terrible looking roof that is falling apart. Get the roof of your home in shape and the gutters working properly like they should.
Pay attention to Pathways and Patios
Don’t let another event at your home zero in on how ugly your pathways and patios look. Or worse, some busy body to make unthoughtful comments which can be embarrassing. Bring your walkways and entertaining areas into tip-top shape!
Spruce Up Your Exterior
Make your home literally pop off the block by brightening up its dull exterior. Step out of your comfort zone and be bold!
Renew Porches and Decks
Fix the decking on your outdoor spaces so they’re safer and more inviting for your family and friends.
Get Fencing in Order
A sagging fence gate or a leaning mailbox can make your house look unloved and not lived in. Get them repaired.
Clean Up the Landscape
Even if you get the house all dolled up, an unkempt yard can ruin the whole effect. Get out the garden gloves and the wheelbarrow, and tidy up that unkempt landscape.
Get the Sprinklers working properly
Droughts can get the best of your landscape, no matter how diligent you are with planting and pruning. Make sure your prize-worthy lawn and garden get the water they need in the most efficient way, by feeding them through sprinklers and irrigation. So make them work like they should.
