You use it almost every day, but most likely your mailbox is not on the top of your mind. To most, the mailbox is there to serve as a receptacle for mail, and not much more thought goes into it than that. However, a mailbox has a very large impact on your overall curb appeal. A gorgeous home loses a great deal of value with a less than beautiful mailbox sitting in front of it.
Before getting to the physical mailbox itself, what is going on around your box and post? One of the easiest ways to improve the appearance of your mailbox is to clean up the area around it. A well-landscaped mailbox can add beauty and appeal to the surrounding area. The landscaping can be simple or complex and should follow any existing theme on the property. Extend the greenery of the yard up onto a porch or the building design out to the curb in order to tie the yard and building together.
Most importantly, have you done anything with your mailbox since you bought the residence? Maybe you applied a fresh coat of paint, but that can only do so much to cover a number of problems and imperfections, such as wood-rot or rust. Getting a new rust free box, replacing the post, or both are ways that you can bring up the value of your home for a very low investment.
Estes mailboxes are manufactured using heavy rust-free aluminum materials that include magnetic door latches to keep the door lid closed, unique elevated floors to eliminate wet mail, durable powder coated finishes to withstand the outside elements, heavy duty construction to resist dings, and a beautiful design to accent your home.
We trust that you will experience the elegance and enhanced curb appeal with Estes both now and for years to come!
