As temperatures tiptoe higher and the sun stays out just a bit longer, we find ourselves afflicted with spring fever — ready for flowers and sandals and new life. Spring cleaning may be happening indoors, but what about outside? Is your home’s exterior as ready for spring as you are? Consider these three ways to freshen up your Shea Home® for the new season.
Refresh your home by first tackling the most urgent concerns. Clean your gutters because built-up debris prevents water from draining properly and can result in structural damage, flooded basements, and stains on craftsman-quality siding. If the temperamental cycles of freezing and thawing from the Colorado winter have caused small splintered cracks in your concrete, use a premade concrete filler and seal up those seams yourself. Finally, check your potted plants. Do their roots still have room to spread? If not, repot them into a larger container.
You already know that Shea Homes® offers gorgeous design details, so let spring inspire you to think about small tweaks that can make your home even better than it already is. Maybe it’s time to install lighting for summer soirées or upgrade your patio from concrete to natural stone pavers. Perhaps a lovely new flower patch in that one underutilized corner of the yard? Oh, the possibilities!
Spring is all about color. Another way to refresh your home is to accessorize with vibrant shades of lemon or turquoise to brighten up your porch or patio. Brush pots with a thin coat of metallic glaze for a like-new finish. Even an act as simple as throwing bright new pillows on the porch swing can be a significant transformation!
Conscientious care of your home’s exterior refreshes your curb appeal and lifts your spirits. Whether your spring routine involves upkeep, improvement, or embellishment, we want to help you find that special home that lifts your spirits. Contact us today!
