Weekend Curb Appeal

It is extremely important to keep up with your home's curb appeal. Below are some quick ways on how you can help transform your home in a weekend.

Replace your outdoor light fixtures for a fresh look. If you don't have the budget for new fixtures, buy a $4 can of spray paint from your local home improvement store. You will be amazed with the difference a fresh coat of paint will make. You can also spray your mailbox for a more uniform look.

Power wash your exterior. Summer flooding and normal wear and tear in New Orleans is a given. You can give your home a whole new look by renting a power washer and giving it a good cleaning.

Paint and replace the hardware on your front door. Use painters tape to protect glass and trim. Be sure to ask the experts at home improvement stores for tips on what paint to use.

Mow and rack your lawn! It's a tedious job, but someone has to do it. It's amazing what a little lawn care can do for a home. If you really want to add more appeal, think about planting a tree or new shrubs.
