Does Kerb Appeal Increase a Homes Value

As you likely know, estate agents often use kerb appeal to describe how your home looks to a potential buyer. The reality of things is that first impressions do count; especially when you are trying to part that person with a huge percentage of their cash!

But what can you do to improve a person’s first impression of your home?

How to improve kerb appeal

Well, there are many things you can do to improve the kerb appeal of your house. First is by sorting out any ‘little jobs’ that need doing. Think mowing the lawn, weeding the driveway, or perhaps planting some flowers. Some basic level landscaping may seem a little bit pointless but they can make all the difference sometimes.

Larger details such as your windows and doors can make a gigantic difference though! The front door is what your eyes are immediately drawn to when looking at a house. After all, it’s the very first thing people see when they enter and the last when they leave.

How front doors help with an initial opinion

Like we said, front doors are an excellent way to improve a person’s perception of your home. If a front door is new, stylish, a great colour as well as having the correct locking system, then your potential buyers will have the reassurance that the rest of this new home they are viewing will be up to the same standard. Which is a great start!

At SCI Windows, we stock a wide range of bespoke front and back composite doors that will give your property a real facelift and enhance the kerb appeal massively.

We offer a diverse range of front doors to fit a variety of styles to suit your every need. From a comprehensive selection of colours to beautiful decorative glass, we have the perfect door for your home.Kerb Appeal

How windows improve the look and security

Well-kept windows are a must when it comes to kerb appeal. Ensuring they are in good shape and are free from any moisture damage, scuffs or cracks is critical. The condition of your windows is something that people are going to be very wary of and pay close attention to, and for good reason!

Windows can really make or break the aesthetic of a home. It’s something worthwhile putting a lot of time and effort into figuring out what steps you need to take to maximise your kerb value. Sometimes it’s as easy as giving them a wipe down. Other times it’s worthwhile arranging for replacement windows to be fitted professionally.

The quality of the glass in the frames can also make a huge difference. People love when there is double or triple glazing on their windows. They see it as one less job to have to do and it also gives you a competitive edge if you’re looking to sell. On top of this, the benefits of double glazing are as long as your arm. From additional security to energy efficiency; it’s clear why having double glazing is essential.
