You love your neighborhood. You love your neighbors. You love your schools. You even love your mail lady! Your house? Meh.
You’ve been tempted by these newer, shinier models. They have fewer wrinkles. No lumps, no bumps. But they don’t have character like your home. It might be fun to try something new, but your home is...yours. She’s been with you a long time. She’s needed a little repair, but you know she was built with an integrity that newly constructed homes lack. You know you have a treasure in your home.
You would’ve paid at least $5000 toward closing costs. So let’s take that money and invest it in something you can trust.
Would you like to drive up to something new and fresh? Let’s tackle the outside! Paint is the most economical way to create a brand new look for your home. No matter what color your roof is, a light, creamy beige would be a bright and clean background for your home. Consider painting your brick as an ultra modern option. If you’re concerned about maintenance on painted brick, lime washing is a fantastic option. The natural brick color peeks through a skim coat of beige. Then when natural wearing occurs, there’s no way to determine what’s intentional and what’s incidental. Coordinate the shutters to the roof color. Try a colonial blue or a medium gray if you have a charcoal roof. If your roof is a warm tone, paint shutters a deep beige or tan. Or match the shutters to the roof with one shade’s difference and choose a bold yellow or robin’s egg blue to underscore the welcome to your guests. Ask
your painters to complete the look by repainting your mailbox. Order a lovely adhesive address inscription from Etsy. Instant facelift, $30!
The average one story home costs around $4000 to paint. That leaves us with $1000 to continue improvement.
Your home will look a hundred percent better with a bright, stain-free driveway. Use $500 to hire a professional to pressure wash your driveway, sidewalk and front porch. You will feel like you’ve purchased a new home!
Here’s where your elbow grease will make a huge difference…
Pull up any dead plants or bushes in the front yard. With the remainder of the money, purchase hearty and verdant bushes such as Sunshine Ligustrum or some Hosta plants. Intermingle some lower lying, colorful flowers in front of the new foliage. Purchase large nugget pine bark or mulch to spread around your new landscaping.
Spread pine straw on any larger bare areas.
Finally, purchase a couple of new planters for the front porch. A deep-discount store such as Ollie’s or Old Time Pottery will afford you the best quality for the lowest investment. Plant a seasonal flower and voila!
You can fall in love with your faithful home all over again. And there’s no better company to help you through this than Huntsville Drywall Repair. Contact us today!

If your property is hit by a Tornado then there are plenty of things you will need to know. There are around 1,200 Tornadoes per year in the U.S. according to the National Weather Service. When a severe thunderstorm is underway there is a chance of a Tornado forming. A Tornado forms when the wind in the top current move at a higher velocity than the bottom current this creates a wind shear. When the top current is moving so fast it creates an updraft. This updraft pulls the slower wind going in the opposite direction up into the thundercloud thus creating a vortex. The damage a Tornado varies depending of the wind speed of the vortex vs the atmospheric pressure and the air surrounding the Tornado. The greatest ones are usually caused by higher wind speeds with the largest difference in air pressure. The winds of the Tornado cause damage to mobile objects, throwing objects around, and knock over smaller structures like fences. The lower air pressure in the vortex causes damage like destroying structures, demolishing buildings and ripping out security fencing. With all this damage comes repairs and repairs can be costly. Especially if you are not covered with insurance. You want a premiere dependable contractor to take care of all your needs with your home.
