The exterior of your home is the face of your property to your neighbors, family, and friends, as well as the stranger walking down the street. What does it say? Hopefully, it says you care for your property and keep up on exterior maintenance. If it doesn’t say this, it’s time to take action and restore the look of the outside of your home.
Clear Out the Dead
Dead plants, shrubs, and trees are an eyesore. Clear them all out. Don’t forget to remove dead branches from healthy trees, especially those close to the house. It not only makes it look better it will protect your home from a falling branch.
Trim Things Back
Overgrown shrubs and trees require a good trim to look their best. You can do some of the work yourself. If you want to have some branches removed from a large tree, it is best to leave that to the professionals who have the experience and equipment to do the job safely.
Clean What You Got
The exterior of your home sits out in the elements every day. Wind blows dirt on the house and dulls every surface it touches. One of the fastest ways to give your home a facelift is to have the exterior pressure washed. A professional cleaning will remove layers of dirt and debris, restoring the original look of your home’s exterior. You can also have your fence, sidewalks, driveway, and deck cleaned at the same time.
While you are cleaning things up, don’t forget to remove the dead leaves and twigs that accumulate in garden beds.
A sagging shutter or a broken porch light makes your home look neglected. Making needed repairs will remove that air of neglect, restoring it to its previous splendor.
