Celebrate National Curb Appeal month /global/scaled/6079x3034x49x429x1020x510/AAES-US-about-us-news-images-AA Value steel SP Wicker Tan_TR2327.jpg August is National Curb Appeal month! Why not celebrate with an exterior refresh to brighten your home and the neighborhood? Even small changes can make a big difference. Start with the basics. Sweep the sidewalk or path to your front door. Wipe down any planters or furniture on your porch or steps. Wash the windows and clean any exterior light fixtures. Then have some fun! If the spring and summer flowers in your yard are looking weary of the summer heat, replant pots or add fall mums and ornamental kale to give flower beds new life for autumn into winter. Find a bright, cheery cushion or pillow for the porch swing or rocker. If you are feeling ambitious, add a new coat of paint as well. Or try a new color on the front door. A few small updates can increase the curb appeal of any home. If you’re looking for an even bigger boost, consider replacing your garage door. Remodeling magazine has ranked garage door replacement in the top three home improvement projects nationwide for a high return on investment. With all the ASSA ABLOY residential garage door designs and colors to choose from, a new garage door can dramatically change the look of your home’s exterior. It’s the perfect way to boost your home’s appearance and value – all while celebrating National Curb Appeal month!
