This Old House presents the best photos of curb-appeal upgrades to homes in 2014. As the editors state at the start of this fascinating slide show, which features 29 amazing before and after photos, “Curb appeal is a little like speed dating: You only get a few minutes to make a great first impression.” 

The pictures clearly show the huge difference that the addition of siding, new windows or a new roof can make to the appearance of your home. We invite you to browse through this slide show when you have some free time. It may give you some fresh ideas for ways you can spruce up the exterior of your own home without breaking the bank. 

If you are ready to take on some home exterior renovation projects and you live in the southwestern Chicago suburbs, be sure to contact Baltic Home Improvements for a quote. Our experienced contractors take pride in providing excellent service and quality workmanship. It is little wonder that we have once again been awarded the Better Business Bureau’s Complaint-Free Award and are recommended by the members of Angie’s List. Join the many Chicagoland residents who are glad they hired us to work on their homes.
