Improve Curb Appeal in 2017

31 Jan

Did you make any personal resolutions at the beginning of the month? How are those going? If you’re like many people, the pressures of daily life have already pushed your well-intentioned goals to the back burner. That’s ok. You have another 11 months to make good on your resolutions and maybe even to add a few! We suggest putting home improvement into the mix, specifically resolving to improve your home’s curb appeal! The good news about this is that you don’t have to do it alone. Here are a few ways to make your home shine even brighter in 2017.

Replace or Refinish Your Entry Door

It’s funny; Most of us walk in and out of the front door every day but rarely notice the wear and tear that accumulates over time. Whether it’s broken weatherstripping, worn wood, or cloudy glass panels, a shabby entry door can give passer-bys a less than stellar first impression of a home.  On the other hand, a new front door can dramatically change a home’s exterior for the better. The beauty of a door is in the details. Decorative glass inserts, custom wood and more all make for a valuable upgrade.

Make Your Windows “Pop!”

Windows act like the eyes of a home. While they provide natural light and ventilation and hopefully energy efficiency for a home’s interior, they also have the power to provide exterior structure and beauty. Old, worn windows may make an otherwise immaculate home look ragged and unkempt. While replacing windows is a major investment, the return on energy bills and curb appeal pays off in the long run.

Consider Custom Glass

The true beauty of a home comes from those unique details that exemplify the style of the homeowner. Using custom and decorative glass with elaborate edgework, custom shapes, sandblasting and more, can make your home stand out from the rest.
