Curb Appeal: What Is It and Why Does It Matter?

Curb appeal, a term used in the building industry and by realtors, refers to how attractive and inviting a home looks from the street. With many forming their first impression of a home from its curb appeal, it’s a major factor when buying or selling a house.


Many things go into creating curb appeal:

  • Roofing (shingle or metal) can freshen up an exterior and add character to a home.
  • Color can create a standout look or cozy feel.
  • Siding and window trim often give a home a more polished and eye-catching look.
  • Front doors can make a statement that sticks with people long after a visit is through.


If you’re feeling overwhelmed by choices, the Haas Builders Supply website offers an online visualizer to explore design and color options for siding, roofing, trim, and doors:

Sample photos are provided to test out color combinations or if you’re looking to experiment with a look tailored to your own home, photos can be uploaded. The visualizer tool provides a quick “3D rendering” to help communicate your vision with design and building professionals.
