Maintain Your Home with Curb Appeal Improvements

The exterior of your home or office is as much a reflection of your style as is the interior. The pros know it and they also know that adding instant curb appeal to your home or place of business doesn’t take much. A little elbow grease can go a long way in sprucing up exterior spaces. One area you don’t want to skimp on is protecting your structure: Cedar Crest siding and roofing can give you a hand with that part. For the rest, read on for some simple tips to make your home or office front more inviting.

Doors Make a Statement

Whether you decide to replace the front door altogether or simply apply some fresh paint, giving new life to your front door will go a long way in creating an aesthetically pleasing feel to your exterior space.

Hardware Tells a Story

Let your hardware do the talking. New hardware, house numbers, and light fixtures make a huge impact on curb appeal. Old, dingy pieces give exactly that feel: old and dingy.

Plants Freshen any Space

Whichever season you’re in, make use of plants or greenery on your front step, porch, or deck. Use them in your landscaping, hang them from eaves, place them on steps and tables and in window boxes. Plants are the perfect source of décor and color for your outdoor space and they add instant life to any setting.

Outdoor Lighting adds Flair

Install some low voltage or solar lighting to walkways. While outdoor lighting adds unique flair and warmth to a space, it also lends an extra layer of security and safety.

While all of these minor improvements are critical to adding curb appeal to your home or office, if your siding is in poor condition, not much will distract from it. Broken, old, or cracked siding will give the feeling of disrepair. In this case contact us at Cedar Crest siding and we’ll get you set up to re-side or repair your exterior.
