WASH YOUR HOUSE’S VISAGE:

ADDING A FRESH COLOR OF PAINT:
A splash of color will add a fresh and unique look to the exterior of your home. The front of your home is the first thing that catches the attention of your neighbors.
FENCE MAINTENANCE, Good fences make great neighbors!:
If your existing fence requires attention, maybe replacing old rotten boards or a new staining application will rejuvenate your bland looking fence. A fence with a garden gate to frame the yard is an asset. If your fence is still standing tall, a cleaning or staining will preserve the life of the fence. We all need our privacy and the fencing is an extension of our home.
The overall condition of your roof is one thing that neighbors will notice first. It’s all in the presentation! Adding new shingles will definitely make your house sparkle.
TAKE GOOD CARE OF THE YARD:
A well-maintained lawn and new landscaping will boost the curb appeal. Maybe you might have to start new again. Maybe replacing the old sod with new grass is necessary. You will add new visual appeal to your property.
A professional landscape technician will plant new flowers, shrubs, cedar trees to surround your home with new vibrant colors, to add that ‘wow’ factor. That hint of new color attracts and pleases the eye of your neighbors.
MAINTENANCE OF THE HOME IS A MUST:
You can dramatically change the look of your home by:
- Resealing cracked asphalt, if still in good condition or re-asphalt.
- Perhaps add new patterned concrete.
- Replacing windows with new energy efficient ones.
- Install new shutters.
- Replacing front doors or porch if necessary.
- Add new landscaping features.
- Replacing shingles, gutters or maintaining existing.
First impressions are everything!
There are more things that you can do to add that special touch or feel to your curb appeal. It is totally up to you!
Part of a curb appeal is the overall experience a neighbor, friend or the average passerby feels as they approach your home. Something that stands out for the wrong reason, the average person will just turn away in disgust and walk away with a bitter taste. The first impression should be a pleasant journey. The porch, the front door and landscaping features is what initially attracts the eye of the average person. In many respects, the more comfortable and welcoming presence as guests approach, the greater the experience and anticipation for the welcome that eagerly awaits them.
In order to add that new curb appeal to your already beautiful home, first you must look at its overall visual presentation. Take a moment to walk away from your property, turn and approach it with an eye of its current condition. At first glance, you may ask yourself; how does it really look? Is it appealing to the eye? What are the first impressions you feel as you approach the front door? Does your home need some routine maintenance or an actual intervention whereby you hire a professional renovation company? The questions seem endless and overwhelming at times. You must look at your home with a subjective point of view. Things that we think look good may be not pleasing at all. Change can definitely be a good idea.
You can improve your curb appeal, by either large or small means. Basically, if you identify a problem, but you have no solution, Perfect Painter can give you a plan to execute and upgrade the look and feel of your exterior property.

First impressions aren’t everything! In fact they are the only thing! The perfect curb appeal can definitely go a long way.
