Time, weather and just day-to-day activities can put wear on your home. Unless you live in a brand new house, your home is likely needing a little TLC to look it’s best again. Here are 6 Home Maintenance Projects That Make a Big Impact. These projects will help your home look fresher, improve your curb appeal and make a big difference in making it look like new again.
#1 Window Washing – You never really notice how dirty your windows are until you clean them. Then you remember how light and bright your home used to be. A simple cleaning both inside and out can make such a difference.
#2 Carpet & Tile Cleaning – Your floors get so much wear and tear. Just look at a spot of carpet behind the chair in the corner and compare it to the main section. Or flip back your living room rug and compare that tile to the exposed tile. No matter how much you mop, sometimes you need the professionals to make it look like new again.
#3 Interior Painting – Fingerprints, scratches and dings, fading over time…your walls probably need a little TLC. Whether it’s simple touchups or a whole room redo, a little paint can go a long way to freshen up your home.
#4 Landscaping – Whether it’s just an overhaul of your existing landscaping or a complete redo, a fresh new look for your flowers and shrubs will bring instant curb appeal. Add fresh mulch to flower beds. Trim your trees and add squares of sod to bare patches in your lawn.
#5 Exterior Staining – The sun and the elements can fade your fence, railings and even your front door. Keeping your stain fresh lengthens the life of your wood and keeps your home looking great.
#6 Power Washing – Wind and rain can leave the exterior of your home looking dirty overtime. A pressure wash can make your home look like new again.
We just moved into an older home so all of these projects are on my list. But in between unpacking boxes, summer activities and everything else life throws has thrown at us, working in home maintenance projects has been tough! That’s why I was so excited to team up with Thumbtack to share with you how to make this whole process easier!

I’ve lived in Austin a long time and honestly I’d never heard of Thumbtack before. So when they reached out to me, I asked a friend if she had heard of them and her husband chimed in and said, “Oh yeah! Thumbtack is great! I used them to find a handyman to help me finish our pergola.” and he pointed to the gorgeous pergola we were sitting under.
So I came home and checked it out and y’all it is so simple! I decided first to tackle our floors so I answered a few questions about the type of tile we had and how many square feet, etc. Then I gave my email address and requested quotes. Within 24 hours I had 3 different quotes for our floors. Each company had user reviews so I could see what others’ experience was with that particular pro. It really helped me find the right one for our job.
Once I picked the pro, I clicked “hire” and within an hour the pro reached out to schedule my service. It was so simple. Then he arrived and his team cleaned our floors. When they were done, they charged me exactly what they said they would. My floors now look so much better now than they did before. I knew the grout was dirty but I had no idea how dirty the actual tiles were until after they came. It was incredible. It made such a difference!
So thanks to Thumbtack I can #ConsiderItDone. Well for my floors at least. I still need to tackle the other 5 projects on the list. But now that I know all about Thumbtack, the projects will be a breeze. I can request quotes for all 5 remaining projects on one site and not have to mess with phoning all over town getting bids for each thing. You know I’m all about simplicity!
