Add to Your Home’s Curb Appeal with an Integrated Roof and Gutters

How can you add curb appeal to your home? Keep it looking integrated.

Curb appeal: it’s something that people often talk about, but it can be difficult to achieve. If you want your home to look gorgeous when people drive or walk by your house, you’re seeking curb appeal. Whether you’re selling your home or you just want to make an excellent first impression, how do you add to your property’s curb appeal? 

1. Be Tidy 

Basic cleanliness is the first step to an outstanding first impression. If you have toys all over your lawn or your grass is patchy and unkempt, then your house won’t have strong curb appeal. If you’re selling your house, take time every day to look at your porch, your pathways, and your garden to keep it clean.

Cleanliness also extends to your house itself. A tidy-looking house and garden have the following features: 

  • The siding is clean and washed regularly 
  • The roof is in good repair 
  • The gutters have a gutter cover or get cleaned regularly 
  • Pathways and porches have no holes or cracks
  • The pathways have distinct edges or flowers bordering the edges 
  • The landscaping is well-pruned if it requires that kind of maintenance 
  • The lawn is consistent and well-maintained 
  • Tools and toys go away after use 
  • Any smaller structures or vehicles are unobtrusive or add to the look of the property, rather than detracting from it 

2. Integrate Key Elements of Your Home 

If you want to go a step further in your quest for curb appeal, you can make sure that you integrate the look of home elements. For example, if you have a heritage home, you might find that planter boxes suit your porch, while a topiary would be a better fit for a modern house. 

Home elements such as your roof and awnings need to match as well. If you can’t find a match for your home, then make sure your additional elements blend into your home decor. For example, your new gutter cover should either suit your home or be virtually invisible. Some brands of gutter covers, such as Harry Helmet, blend easily into your roof line, so they are a match for any home. As you look at designing a home with an integrated exterior, consider the following home elements and how they are a visual match with the rest of your home.

  • Do other structures such as sheds match the style of your home? 
  • Do the gardens have a similar feel to your home? 
  • Do porch or entryway decorations echo the look of your home? 
  • Does your new roof match the overall feel of the home? 
  • Do additions such as a gutter cover or awnings create a visual match or blend with your existing structures?
  • Do pathway materials feel similar to the materials used in the home and in your landscaping? 
  • Does your landscape lighting give the feeling you’re looking for in your home? 
Your landscaping should echo the feel of your home.

3. Integrate Your Landscaping 

If you’d like to give your home a welcoming feeling, there’s no better way than to create a garden that embraces your visitors. Consider how your garden style complements your home.

  • Choose an overall feeling for your garden: from Japanese garden to English cottage garden
  • Use textured flowers and leaves to work with your home’s style
  • Add colors that are similar to or complement your home’s color 
  • Remember to integrate your front porch or front door landscaping into your overall theme as well

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
