Curb Appeal

Top Projects to Enhance Curb Appeal

Now that warm weather has arrived, more and more people are headed outside to enjoy the beautiful Kansas City spring. Which means, whether walking, biking, or simply driving to their next adventure, more people than ever are passing by (and passing judgement on) your house.

Stop ducking into your garage embarrassed the minute you see someone you recognize, and instead, make your home stand out from the rest this spring with these top projects that enhance curb appeal:

Installing a New Front Door
The first thing people notice about your house is your front door, however, most homeowners overlook it completely. This spring, give your front entryway the care it deserves by installing a new style by Masonite. Whether fiberglass or wood, glass-paneled or not, these state-of-the-art front doors will add value and comfort to your home as soon as they are in place.

Updating Porch Railing
Not only is updating your porch railing great for safety, but it also adds new life to your property. Simply upgrade your classic wood railing or replace it with more modern, bold styles by Trex, and in a single afternoon, your front porch will feel like an entirely new space. For even more curb appeal, consider installing any of Trex’s railing lighting features, so that the beauty and use of your porch can last well beyond sunset.

Refreshing Siding and Trim
Nothing can age a house quite like cracked, warped, or faded siding and trim. This spring, refresh your home with new siding and trim like that made by LP SmartSide. Made up of engineered materials, this new siding and trim will make your home more durable, efficient, and beautiful than ever before.

Replacing Windows
Whether a seal is broken, panes are rotting, or they are simply styles that have gone out of date, replacing the windows on the front of your home pays off in both beauty and functionality. When you opt for windows from Andersen, not only do you get to choose from countless styles that your neighbors will envy like casement, bay, picture, and more, but you also have the option of incorporating new technology that helps block harmful sun rays to keep your home and family healthy.

From replacing windows on the front of your house to finally doing something about that old siding, a little time and effort invested in your home this spring will go a long way. So go ahead, quit being ashamed of your home’s exterior, and instead add some much needed curb appeal today.
