Ideas on How to Add Curb Appeal to Your Home by Joseph Renteria

Remember all those outdoor fix up projects you've been putting off waiting for the warm summer months? Well, summer's here and it's time to think about getting some repairs in while the temperatures are still agreeable. Break out the tool belt or pick up the phone and call Builder Boy to turn your home into the belle of the block with these home exterior fixes that can add value to your home while adding curb appeal.


Replacing your cement walkway with paver stones add instant value to your home.

1. Let the Sunshine In - One of the simplest but most satisfying fix ups you can do is to make your windows sparkle and shine, letting in clear summer light.

2. Fix Up the Front Door - Your front entry is your home's ambassador. Spice things up by painting the front door another color or replacing it altogether.

3. Get Rid of Rotted Wood - Don't let damage to the wood on your house's exterior let rot to set in. Weatherproof your home or switch to stucco.

4. Polish Up Paths and Patios - Don't let another winter wreak havoc on your hardscaping. Bring your walkways and entertaining areas into tip-top shape while you can still enjoy them. For those with concrete driveways and walkways, switch to paver stones and add instant value to your home.

5. Spruce Up the House Paint - Make your home stand out by brightening up its drab exterior with a fresh coat of paint.

6. Renew Porches or Decks - Fix the decking on your outdoor spaces so they're safer and more inviting for summer and fall entertaining.

7. Mow the Lawn - Something simple, yet often overlooked. Break out the mower or hire a professional landscaper to maintain the green in the front lawn. For those who want to eliminate the painstaking hassle of cutting the grass, think about hardscaping solutions from Hardscape Concepts.
