How to Increase Curb Appeal to Your Home

Whether you’re looking to sell your home, or just want to keep it looking clean and fresh, curb appeal is important. When people drive by your house, the exterior of your home and your lawn is the first impression they get of your home. If things look clean and well-kept, your curb appeal will soar. If things are looking dingy and in need of some TLC, it’s time to look for ways of how to increase curb appeal at your home.

People often think they have to spend a fortune to get the curb appeal they desire. But, you would be surprised at what some little tweaks and improvements, and cleaning can do for your home. At CLH Painting & Power Washing, we offer several services that can make your curb appeal soar. Let’s take a look at some ideas to get you started.

How to Increase Curb Appeal in 3 Easy Steps

Exterior Painting Job

Look at the outside of your home and your doors. Is the paint faded, chipped, or cracked? If so, it’s time to apply a fresh coat of paint.

When the paint on the outside of your home is looking less than fresh, it can bring down your curb appeal. Your house may look older than it actually is and give off a negative first impression. 

If you’ve been putting off getting the outside of your home painted, it could lead to unnecessary damage and additional repairs. These repairs may end up costing you more than having your house painted. At CLH Painting & Power Washing, we recommend getting your home’s exterior painted approximately every seven years. This timeframe will depend on your home’s condition, and the weather, among other things.

When you do get your home painted, you’ll see that a fresh coat of paint on the exterior of your home can make it look new again. At CLH Painting & Power Washing, we have the experience to get the job done and give your home the curb appeal it deserves. We don’t just start painting your home. We take the proper steps to get the job done right so that your paint lasts. This includes making any repairs, pressure washing, sanding, priming, and caulking. We make sure the area is prepped appropriately and always clean the area so that it looks good as new.

You can count also on us to use quality products that will withstand the elements and last. Painting the exterior of your home is a win-win all around when it comes to increasing your home’s curb appeal and preventing unnecessary repairs.

Pressure Wash Your Home

Pressure washing is a great way to restore your home’s shine if you’re looking for ways of how to increase curb appeal. Over time, dirt, algae, mold, and other contaminants can make your home look dingy and old. Professional pressure washing services from CLH Painting & Power Washing can give your home the facelift it deserves. We use a trailer-mounted low-pressure soft wash system to protect your exterior surfaces.

Pressure washing uses high pressure to remove dirt, mold mildew, and stains from outdoor surfaces. Besides pressure washing your home, you can also pressure wash gutters, roofs, decks, patios, sidewalks, driveways, brick, concrete, and more. Since driveways are exposed to grease and oil, you’ll certainly want to put this on your list of surfaces to pressure wash. A dirty driveway won’t score you any points in the curb appeal department.

One of the other great benefits of pressure washing your home’s exterior is that it is effective on a wide variety of surfaces such as vinyl, wood, aluminum, and fiber cement. Pressure washing is the answer to many curb appeal issues for homeowners in the Raleigh area.

Many people turn to pressure washing to increase their curb appeal because it not only makes their property look cleaner but also shows off its architecture. When surfaces are dirty or covered with algae or mold, they’re going to stand out for the wrong reasons. But, once they’ve been pressure washed, they’ll start standing out for all of the right reasons.

When you have your home pressure washed, the increased curb appeal will also help to raise the market value. Homebuyers want to invest in a home that is clean and looks new. They also want to see homes that have decks and driveways that are clean. This gives them a fresh, clean appearance that will appeal to people looking at your home.

If the exterior of your home has curb appeal, you’ll increase your chance of getting buyers. If you’re not looking to sell, you can enjoy your home’s new, clean look yourself!

Keep Up with Landscaping

If the outside of your home is clean or has a fresh coat of paint, you also want your landscaping to be in pristine shape. Grass that hasn’t been cut or shrubs and trees that need to be pruned are going to create an unnecessary eyesore outside of your home. Keep up on mowing the lawn and making sure that all of your other greenery is in good shape. Planting flowers also adds a nice touch to your landscaping and helps to keep the curb appeal going in the right direction.
