BE the Joneses – Setting the Neighborhood Standard – Affordably

Keeping up with the Joneses?

Do you find yourself “keeping up with the Joneses,” always feeling pressured to live up to the highest neighborhood standard? If the Joneses get a new car, you need one, too. If they hire a lawn service, you hire one, too. The game is exhausting for everyone – except the Joneses. They’re the ones setting the standard, so they don’t have to play catch up.

BE the Joneses!

What if, instead of following the Joneses, you become them? How pleasant would it be to set the neighborhood standard with your property? Of course, it could require big investments into the best landscaping, the most expensive car, and the fanciest doors and windows. You might even throw in a backyard pool.

You could do that – OR – you could set the neighborhood curb-appeal standard by spending very little money. How? Make the most of what you already have, and personalize it with a few affordable improvements.

Here are some examples:

Highlight your walkway – Today’s technology allows for affordable, no-energy-cost solar lights you can easily install. With little effort or expense, you can light your path to success – and to your door.

Feature your front porch – Adding potted and/or hanging plants draws summer to your front step. Placing a variety of annuals in a decorative pot beautifies the space, adding a touch of elegance without a lot of effort.

Personalize your property – Accessories such as lawn décor, flags, and windchimes come in a variety of styles, from whimsical and charming to sophisticated and stylish. Chosen thoughtfully, they can reflect your personality and create eye-catching appeal to passersby.

Power up with a power wash – Think about the sparkle of newly-constructed concrete. One of the least expensive yet most impactful improvements to your property is restoring the look of your concrete. You can spray away the grey look, grime, and oil stains from your walks, patios, and driveway (including the pool deck you may have installed in the chase). Sound difficult and expensive? Read on…

“Anew” idea for a fresh look

Don’t-I-Y – Why is cleaning concrete so difficult? You’ve sprayed it with a hose, scrubbed it with a brush, and even rented a power-washer … but with minimal results. Sometimes, it looks worse because the grime spreads. Plus, the resulting backache didn’t help you feel any better about it.

Do call Anew! – Anew Contractors has the equipment, techniques, and proper detergent concentrations to clean your concrete. Our soft-wash system is gentle, yet effective. The results are nothing less than “WOW”! And once your patio, driveway, parking spaces, pool deck, and paths are clean, Anew Contractors seals them to make the sparkle last.

With Anew’s expertise, you’ll feel like you’ve moved without having to pack a single box. Your sparkling clean driveway and gleaming white sidewalks will invite the neighbors to follow suit. You may even inspire a neighborhood rejuvenation initiative.

Restoring your concrete to its full luster is not only possible, it’s affordable. And with Anew Contractors, it doesn’t take up your weekend or hurt your back.

Now that’s setting a standard!

“It’s not easy being green.”

“Going green” is a popular catchphrase today. It represents clean, healthy, environmentally friendly products and services. It brings to mind grassy fields, budding trees, and lush lawns. Green yards are great! Green on the side of your house, however, not so much.

Green algae, as well as black and brown mold (often mistakenly called “mildew”), can grow on even the best quality siding, giving your home an old, dirty look. Usually, just like the old adage, it grows on the house’s north side. The cause? Lack of sunshine to dry out the continual moisture in the air. Other constantly shaded spots can suffer as well.

The mold presents no particular danger, except maybe the lowering of your home’s aesthetic value. If left untreated, it will grow to cover the entire surface. Many residents pride themselves in their home’s “curb-appeal” (especially when buying or selling a home). Moldy siding detracts from an otherwise attractive property.

Take a walk…

Think about it: have you walked through a neighborhood where someone has taken great pains to maintain an immaculate lawn with beautiful landscaping? Perhaps they have a perfectly poised porch swing, and a well-maintained walk &/or driveway, too. Lovely – until you notice the dingy brown or green spots on their otherwise white picket fence or home siding. Not so pretty anymore, right? Suddenly the property seems older and less cared for – disappointing.

The scene isn’t unusual, and it isn’t due to resident neglect. It’s just a part of living in Indiana where damp weather is common and takes its toll on our homes. Wet weather can also cause rust stains from things like leaky drain pipes. Again, a disappointing detraction from an otherwise pretty property.

So what can you do to protect the look and value of your property? The good news is – it’s pretty simple. With the right technique, equipment, and safe detergent, the mold, algae, and even rust stains can be washed away leaving your siding as appealing as the rest of your home (and leaving your neighbor’s asking you how you made your home look so good).

What does your ideal weekend look like?

If your dream weekend includes standing for long hours holding the wand of a store-bought pressure washer and scrub brush, the tools are certainly available. Of course, you’ll probably want some rubber gloves and boots too; cleanup requires getting messy.  And don’t forget the ladder to reach the stuff up high – while holding the wand – and scrubbing. Yeah, you might want to keep your cell phone handy and poised to dial 911, too. This seemingly simple task can prove to be dangerous; just ask your friendly emergency room tech. If you’re going to do it on your own, prepare properly and be safe.

If, however, the above scenario is not your idea of a fun couple of weekends, Anew Contractors are the heroes you’ve been hoping for. We come in, clean-cut and personable, easy to reach and easy to work with, trained, bonded, and insured, experts in exterior cleaning. We have the right equipment to soft-wash your siding while protecting your property and restoring your home’s beauty. Our specialty pressure washing system is safe enough to wash your dog or kids (but we’ll leave that to you). Even safer is you not climbing a ladder with hose in hand, hoping everything turns out well. Best of all, we can do in an afternoon what it takes a DIYer two full weekends to accomplish. That’s a lot of time saved, including all the cleanup required after the cleanup!

Get Refreshed!

Anew Contractors restores your home’s siding to its natural beauty while you enjoy a tall glass of your favorite refreshment and real weekend time with your family and friends. You can count on us to do a great job – we’re established professionals, not just weekend warriors who are here, then gone, never to be heard from again.

Awning Cleaning: After

3 Simple Secrets to Attract Customers to Your Business with Curb Appeal

Happy Spring!

Ready for some fresh air and spring cleaning? We are, too!

For many businesses, spring means winter-weary customers emerging again.  (YAY!) Hoosier’s come to life in the spring, just like the nature around them.  They’re eager to get out and do things – eat, shop, repair, redecorate, remodel, landscape, and spend money (especially with their new tax checks)!

The customers are ready for your business, but is your business ready for customers?

In spring, it’ especially important for local businesses to freshen up their winter-dulled exteriors. Your eyes may be used to your place’s “winter remains”, but to your customers, the “leftovers” stand out more than you think. Follow these 3 tips to take your venue from grime to sublime:

  1. Make it sparkle!

The next time you’re out, notice the sidewalks and entryways of the places you visit. Are they clean and inviting? Is the entrance fit for royalty, or just for the James Dean crowd?

Would you recommend the place to your teens for Prom Night dinner or to your mother-in-law for a great place to shop? Would you feel confident encouraging your boss to walk into this establishment?

So how does your business’s curb-appeal measure up? Pay attention to details.

Watch for:

  • Blackened gum spots on sidewalks
  • Oil stains in the parking lot and drive-thru lane
  • Dulled – formerly white – concrete
  • Bird droppings under landscape trees
  • Grit and grime in corners and around the front door
  • Dirty exterior walls – especially around doors and windows
  • Dingy canopies

Restoring sparkle is Anew Contractors’ specialty! Our trained professionals, industrial equipment, and expert techniques make any business shine. Cleaned concrete, walls, and canopies make a statement in your curb appeal. Your care attracts customers!

Cleaning your exterior properly can save you from savvy eyes of The Inspector, too! That’s value!

  1. Freshen Things Up!

It doesn’t take much to add beauty to your newly cleaned outdoors. Fresh mulch and fragrant flowers brighten up a spot. With landscaping, the sky’s the limit! (Or, maybe the ground’s the limit in this case.) Depending on your budget, you can keep it sweet and simple, or complex and creative. To make a wise decision, keep these things in mind:

  • Cost – Landscaping can be as little as a load of mulch or some simple potted flowers by the entrance. It can also grow into lavish hardscapes like fountains, stone walkways, and sitting walls. Decide your budget before you start.
  • Maintenance – Who will take care of it once it’s in place? What’s required to do so? Greenery and flowers need water, bushes need trimming, and ponds require daily upkeep. On the other hand, rock gardens and mulch provide long-lasting ground cover with little maintenance (though they still need to be weeded in summertime).
  • Layout – From the simplest flowerpots to the most ornate outdoor-scapes, beautiful landscaping requires planning. The pro’s make it look easy, but without a plan, it can just look like chaos. Once you’ve determined your budget and maintenance needs, make a plan – or call a professional to lay out one for you.

Anew Contractors can recommend trusted professionals to help you with your landscape needs. And if your grass fertilizer causes rust spots on the sidewalk, we can clean it up for you easy-peasy.

  1. Let There be Light!

When it comes to curb appeal, a little light goes a long way! Lighting can add intrigue, romance, or excitement to your business’s exterior. It can also draw customers’ eyes to prominent features such as the entryway or your business logo. This is a great element to consider for after-dark businesses like restaurants or theaters. There are so many ways to use light, too!

Consider these lighting options:

  • Spot – Spotlights highlight the beauty of trees, sculptures, logos, flags, and special decorations.
  • Path – Customers become celebrities walking the lit path to your entrance.
  • Neon – From vintage art-deco to modern Times Square, neon adds flare to any space.
  • Decorative –Uniquely designed lights can serve as their own attraction.
  • Water feature – Colored lights in a pond or fountain double the feature’s appeal.
  • String – Create a Mediterranean atmosphere with tree-strung “Christmas” lights.
  • LED Rope – Multi-colored, pattern-changing lights make your venue modern and exciting!

Anew Contractors’ lighting connections really shine! Call us for our bright recommendations!
