Six Strategies to Improve Your Property’s Curb Appeal

If you want to give your property's curb appeal a boost, consider some simple strategies that can be done quickly for a fast transformation. These tactics can make a house, business, or any building look more manicured and more inviting.

Six ways to transform the curb appeal of your property are:

1. Sleek sealcoating. Sealcoating brings a smooth, sleek surface to all your outdoor spaces, including driveways, parking lots, and walkways. It is relatively easy to apply, but contact a professional sealcoating contractor to get it done right. It dries fast and provides quick gratification when you want an improved curb appeal. 

2. Lush landscaping. Is your landscaping lacking? Put some time and money into maintaining the trees, plants, and beds that you have around your property and enjoy enhanced curb appeal throughout warmer months. Consider adding some conifers for a hedge or focal point, which will be lush and green in the winter, too.

3. Awesome awnings. Order custom awnings to fit the windows, doors, and porches of your building, home, or business. These can conceal older windows, and eliminate the need for elaborate window-treatments as awnings provide a finished, cohesive look. You likely will want to measure and order customized awnings that will be made for your specific property.

4. Sophisticated signage. Sometimes a new sign is all that you need to bring a new flair to your curb appeal. Consider something that is custom-made for you or your business, whether that be your company logo, family name, or simply the street address.

5. Fresh paint. It is true -- a fresh coat of paint can make all the difference when it comes to your property's curb appeal. Take time and invest in hiring a professional as this ensures the job will be done thoroughly and swiftly, depending on your timeline and needs. Also, this prevents the conglomeration of materials, staging, and mess that can accompany painting your building on your own, while trying to manage work and other responsibilities.

6. Alluring architecture. Did you know that you can order unique architectural elements to be installed on the exterior (or interior) of your home or business? Molding, trim, cornices, and timbers can be added to give your curb appeal distinction and a bit of vintage flair.
