Home Curb Appeal: 3 Easy Ways to Improve the Safety & Curb Appeal of Your Home

Selling your home or just want to make it look better? Here are three tips to help you improve the curb appeal, and safety, of your home!

  • Paint your home’s trim with a light color. A fresh coat of paint is relatively inexpensive and is one of the fastest ways to increase its curb appeal. Light colors don’t show the fading as much.
  • Replace rotted expansion joints in your driveway. Traditionally, the fix was to dig out what was left of the old expansion joint and replace it with new wood or using self-leveling caulk. Neither option is easy. Inevitably, the slabs will move and the wood won’t fit any more. The easy way to fix this problem, and potentially save thousands of dollars in maintenance, is by using durable Trim-A-Slab, available in black, gray or walnut. You just press it in with the heel of your hand and clip it to the right length. Unlike other joint repairs, it can be easily used to fill a variety of gap sizes. It doesn’t require much preparation. And it slides in easily and holds itself in place.
  • Remove and keep mold and mildew off of your house paint. You can easily clean this off, and prevent it from returning for a year or two, with a light brushing and a mild bleach solution. I find that a soft brush, like you might find for washing cars or boats, works well with a household bleach solution.
