The Science of Curb Appeal

Beige Residential House

Imagine your property. Now imagine that you’re looking at it from the curb. What elements create that difference between a home that makes you wince when you pull into the driveway… And a home that makes you proud?

Curb appeal can feel like a science, but we have (hopefully relieving!) news for you: It’s really just a formula. And when you invest in property maintenance for your exterior, your curb appeal thrives.

The formula for great curb appeal

First up, take a moment to think about the elements that make up your home exterior. You can generally divide it into a few broad categories. And these categories are the ones that need TLC. Consider:

  • Hardscapes: Your property is comprised of hardscapes more than you might think. Concrete cleaning is the best way to keep your driveway, sidewalk, patio, and other surfaces at their prime, all year long.
    The tricky balance with your hardscapes? They aren’t always at the top of your mind when you’re diving into a home improvement project. But concrete cleaning is the best way you can invest in a positive first impression for your property.
  • Landscaping: A well-maintained lawn will get you lots of curb appeal mileage, and a garden to match will, too. But even if you aren’t a natural green thumb, a routinely mowed lawn will work wonders.
  • Home exterior: With regular house washing, your home will be a magnet – not an eyesore. We use soft washing to remove all the stains and let your spotless exterior shine.
