Curb Appeal: How to Make People Give Your Home a Second Look

In a neighborhood with carefully manicured lawns and houses with walls that look as if they’re always freshly painted, how do you make people give your home another look?

Doors and entryways give guests—and even passersby—an idea of what to expect inside your home. If your door or entryway is a remarkable sight, people will have a good feeling about you and your home even when they haven’t entered yet. Furthermore, a beautiful front door and entryway can make your home stand out in the neighborhood.

At Renewal by Andersen® of Sacramento, we’d like to help you make the most of your exterior doors and entryways. Here are some tips for adding curb appeal:

Have Custom Door

We don’t live in a cookie-cutter world, but why does your door look like every other door in the neighborhood? Whether you’re replacing your front door or patio doors in Roseville CA, custom doors can enhance the overall appeal of your home.

At Renewal by Andersen of Sacramento, we offer a full line of doors that you can customize according to your style and preference. You can choose from a range of shapes, sizes, grille patterns, and hardware finishes. You won’t need to worry about having a door that looks exactly like someone else’s as there are many possible combinations.

Replace or Add Door Accessories and Hardware

Another way to increase curb appeal is to replace worn-out door and entryway accessories or hardware, such as your doorknob and mailbox. These minor things can have major effects on the way other people see your home. ( I would either remove the replace hardware paragraph or expand on the options Renewal has for hardware with the purchase of a replacement door. Focus on full replacement not fixes or repairs because we don’t provide that for anyone unless their windows are under RbA warranty)

Polish the Glass

When the glass takes up a huge portion of your door, making sure it is free from fingerprints, dirt, and other impurities is important. You should also check for cracks or other problems on the glass. These will affect not only your home’s curb appeal, but also the door’s performance.

Andersen® doors come with low-maintenance High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. It is fast drying and helps reduce water spots and dirt buildup. (include glass comes with a full replacement, we do not do glass, lighting, or hardware repair)

Install Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting can change the look of your home at night. Lead your guests to your front door safely with an elegant set of path lighting fixtures. Make your front door the focal point of your house by installing overhead lighting.

Front doors and entryways give guests a preview of what’s inside your home. In addition, you’ll see many people taking a second look at your home and appreciating it when you have an attractive door and entryway.
