Transform Your Home Exterior
Replace chipped, peeling, outdated paint with a fresh exterior coat. Don't be afraid to paint bricks.
Paint any trim, garage doors and sconces in an accent color.
Add shutters to enhance the windows.
Replace your old front door! Make sure your new door is insulated and sturdy.
Remove dead or dying plant life. Create a natural border to your property with shrubs, vines, flowers and trees.
Build a grand entrance! One idea: a bluestone walkway, new steps, stone planters and a stone bench.
A new mailbox can make a nice finishing touch.
Special thanks and more detailed product information
