Improve Your Curb Appeal and Maintain Your Anchorage Alaska Home

If you are preparing your house to sell it or just simply maintaining it well, there are a number of inexpensive things you can do yourself to improve your property.

Asphalt Get Tired and Cracked Over TimeIn the past, I've mentioned paint as being the least expensive and highest "bang for the buck" you can do. I've talked about new flooring as being a huge "game changer".

I've talked about changing out light fixtures to either better ones, or update color to something more contemporary and modern. Another thing that anyone who can drive a screwdriver can do is change doorknobs from brass to brushed nickle or bronze.

Another thing you can do yourself for under $200 is to reseal your asphalt driveway. It's great maintenance to fill in the cracks to keep water from getting under the asphalt, which over time can cause it to buckle as the ground heaves in Anchorage's freeze and thaw cycles. Dress Up Your Home Curb Appeal - Inexpensively!You can do it yourself, or for about $400, you can have professionals do it for you.

Even if you don't care about the maintenance, the improvement you get in "curb appeal" is huge. Look at the before and after photo's in the two photo in this blog post? This Anchorage home stands out from the others and tells anyone who drives past it 'the owner cares about this home!"
