First Impression AKA Curb Appeal

Take a moment to recall someone that you weren’t a fan of from the moment you met them. Then take a few additional moments to uncover the root characteristic or personality trait that caused this. Perhaps it was the way they dressed, or the poor handshake they gave, regardless what it was, they made a first impression that affected your emotions negatively toward that individual. This first impression directly correlates with the phenomenon of curb appeal.

You may be thinking that there have been plenty of people that you did not like initially, but now you consider them to be your closest friends. However, that relationship took time to develop and guessing by the initial meeting, the time needed wasn’t by choice. The key word there to focus on is ‘choice.’ Potential tenants have a choice, and believe us, they will exercise that power of choice and nothing will nudge tenants away from your rental unit faster than poor curb appeal.

We all know everyday that a unit sits vacant you, the landlord, losses money. This may compound to the point where to fill the unit you drop the price to an offer too good to pass up regardless of the initial emotionally driven thoughts on the appearance. The previous scenario provided the landlord with a financial loss, but as long as you do not forget to follow our simple yet strict guidelines your future as a property owner will become a portfolio full of sound financial gains. This is where we provide Los Angeles with a cornerstone service for success.

L.A. Elite Window Cleaning’s Top Gutter Dilemmas

Avoid damage to your roof

As gutters become blocked, when the rain does fall pools of water form rather than immediately drain. These pools can eventually turn into leaks. Leaks as a best-case scenario require a new roof; worst-case scenario is a collapse, causing severe home damage.

Gutters that are not efficiently draining can drip either from overflow or leaks that form over time. This drip will cause staining to the paint or siding of the property. We are sure you’ve seen is, and the image below is from one of you neighbors here in Los Angeles.

Keep unwanted guests out

Regularly checking keeps this nuisance from being a full-blown expensive fix. One or two bird nests are an easy removal and quite common. The problem arises with years of nests accumulate and other animals use that nest material to build their own dwelling. Before you know it you have your own private zoo, which usually ends with having to completely replace your gutters due to damage animals can cause over time.
