The other day I was driving around town, doing errands, and I heard a commercial over the radio about curb appeal. As I have been thinking about that phrase this week, I have noticed a couple of things.
First off, it is quite apparent, walking through different neighborhoods who is concerned about their home’s curb appeal, and who isn’t.
A wide variety of circumstances can account for the discrepancies of appearances, granted, however, doesn’t it make a huge difference to your home and neighborhood when homes are cared for? This can include the simplicity of mowing the lawn regularly, and maintaining a garden, whether simple or elaborate. Small and consistent effort to care for one’s home can pay off big in the long term when it comes to creating and maintaining a nice place to live. This is also true when it comes to home maintenance. Small repairs prevent big problems down the road. The charm and beauty of your community is wrapped in the efforts of individuals.
Second, as a homeowner there are sometimes projects that require a capital investment to repair, replace and maintain your home’s functionality and appearance.
These projects may include your roof, siding, or windows. Your home was build to last, however, through the years you’ll notice the effects of weather and time including; fading, cracking, leaking, and breaking. When these challenges arise, working with a trusted and time tested contractor such as Advanced Window Products can ensure the most reasonable cost with the best craftsmanship available. No more leaks, no more fading, no more drafts. Wha-la! Your home looks fabulous, and performs the way it was built to in the beginning.
Lastly, as a kid, my mom always made sure that our home and garden was beautiful.
We didn’t live in a terribly fancy place. What we had was simple, but it was nice. My mom spent her discretionary income largely on maintaining her garden. I loved it, she loved it. Years later she told me that the reason she did this, was so that I would be proud to come home, and to bring my friends home with me. It was important that our home was a sanctuary for myself and my partners in crime. Creating curb appeal for your home, whether it be needing new windows, or simply planting beautiful flowers in the pots by your front door, can create a sense of pride in your family, and open the doors for safety and security for those you love.
