Learn how to make your house shine as the nicest on the block. Improving your curb appeal might increase your property value and/or make your home easier to sell.

Learn how to avoid *un- curb appeal * by maintaining your home's landscaping and pruning mature plantings so that your property maintains its visibility. As it has been said, you can't sell it if you can't see it.
Fix your cracked and eroded asphalt driveway before it falls apart and needs an expensive professional replacement. It's easy to repair cracks and apply topcoat, and the supplies are inexpensive.
Give the front of your home curb appeal by adding a trellis, arbor and low wall. These projects are all low-cost and easy enough to do yourself. This simple entryway face-lift will make your home more inviting and add value when it comes time to sell.
Looking for a simple expansion that’ll give you more space in your home? A new dormer in a cramped, underused attic might just be the ticket. It'll create the additional headroom you need to make a comfortable living space--an extra bedroom, studio or playroom. And a dormer window provides natural light, fresh air and perhaps some dramatic treetop views. Dormers look great from the outside, too, adding variety to a plain front and improving your home's curb appeal , not to mention the resale value. We’ll show you the major steps to follow when building a dormer, including how to cut and reframe your existing roof, assemble the dormer walls and frame your new roof.
These small, inexpensive improvements to your yard and home's exterior add up to a dramatic upgrade for your home.
