The norm for our Gainesville area is having a fenced backyard. Perhaps you will want to install new fencing. It’s a nice option on your home. A great way for back-yard privacy, or your kids safe-play zone, and also a nice safe restricted area for your pets too. Make sure to check your HOA rules and regs to see if they have restrictions on certain types of fencing that is allowed in your neighborhood. If you need to know who we recommend as a Fence Vendor in the Alachua County area, check our local vendor list!
It’s amazing what a change in style and new bathroom fixtures can do for each bathroom! It’s as easy as taking a shopping stroll at Lowe’s or Home Depot. If you’re not so handy, then just call a trusted local handyman to install the fixtures you’ve bought. Take photos of your existing sink fixtures with your smart phone, and this will help to make sure you purchase the right fixtures that will match the holes already in the tops of your bath vanities.
This can be a big task. How long has it been since your home has gotten a fresh coat of paint? It makes a big difference. Are you a do-it-yourself kinda homeowner? Then go walk out in front of your home and take a hard look at your home. Does it need a make-over? Maybe a good power-wash could help? Do a walk-around to see if your interior needs a fresh paint too. If you prefer to talk to a local painting contractor, check out our list of local Painters on our Home Service Provider List
Changing/Replacing your garage door can make a big exterior visual difference. There are different styles now that can be a bit more stylish for the front elevation view of your home. Also you will want to select a garage door that does have panels that let natural light into the garage. Check our home service provider list for Garage Door companies
Since we mentioned your garage door, how about a new front door too? Changing your front entry door can make a nice significant visual change to the entrance of your home. You can talk to your handyman for installation of a new front door. You can go shopping and looking on Home Depot or Lowes. There are local door vendors in the Gainesville area too.
