Tidy up your Aerial Cables and Increase your Kerb Appeal

Did you know that if your aerial cables are messy you could be reducing the appeal of your home and possibly even its value?

If you paid for a quick and cheap install last time you had any cabling added, the chances are it doesn’t look as tidy as it could do.

Spot the untidy aerial cables signs

If you’ve got a bad case of untidy cables, it won’t take much for you to notice that the front of your house isn’t looking its best.

But there are a few things to look out for that can stop your home from looking as appealing as it could:

  • Loose digital TV cabling across the roof
  • Different coloured cable and cable clip colours
  • More than one colour cable
  • Aerial cable through guttering
  • Unsealed cable entry point
  • Aerial joints sealed with electrical tape

As well as being unsightly, having aerial cables constructed in this way is unnecessary. In some cases, it might even be quicker to do the job neatly!

Transform your home’s exterior

It’s not difficult to tidy up your aerial cables, but for your safety and to ensure that everything works correctly it’s best to ask an aerial company to assist you.

The first job should be to re-cable and make sure that all the cables and cable clips are the same colour. Then, the cables should follow the same runs so there aren’t cables all over your property.

If you’ve got holes where your cables enter and exit, ask an aerial professional to seal them with mastic. It’s waterproof so you shouldn’t need to touch the hole up once it’s sealed.

An aerial company should be happy to help you tidy up your aerial cables, but it might be worth getting it done at the same time as replacing your aerial as they may be able to offer you a deal.
