Spring has finally arrived, making this a great time of year to tackle all those outdoor home maintenance and repair projects you’ve been putting off all winter!

While you’re busy making a to-do list of all that need to be done, don’t forget to step back and take a look at the big picture. Start by examining the outside of your house from the street to see what you can do to improve the curb appeal of your home.

It might be something as simple as giving the outside of your house a good spring cleaning or painting your front door a bold, new color. Other suggestions to improve your curb appeal include adding shutters to windows, updating the mailbox, improving the plantings and landscaping in your yard, and replacing the roof.

Spring Cleaning

Spring cleaning the outside of your home to remove accumulated dirt and grime is the first step toward improving the curb appeal of your home.

The PivotPro™ Water Wand from Hyde Tools attaches to a garden hose to provide fast, effective cleaning. Simply add liquid soap to the mixing reservoir, set the desired soap-to-water ratio, then turn the lever on to deliver a blast of water and cleaner to your home.

Moving the sliding handle in or out allows you to pivot the nozzle and direct the spray where it’s needed to wash and rinse your deck, siding, or eaves. The PivotPro™ also has an adjustable brush mounted below the nozzle for hard to clean surfaces. You can even attach a bendable spindle brush to make cleaning around deck railing spindles a snap.

Siding Replacement
