Real Estate: TIPS on TUESDAY
Add welcoming character to your entrance by painting the front door in a semigloss exterior color. While you’re at it, brighten up any surrounding trim. For a gallery of colorful doors, go to www.thisoldhouse.com/new-homeowner.
Inspect your gutters. During a storm, thousands of gallons of water can pour off the leaves of an average-size roof. Simply cleaning may keep the water moving along, and replacement or repair will definitely keep your roof better prepared to safeguard your home.
Outdoor lighting can complement your home’s visual appeal while promoting safety. Replace broken or out-of-character fixtures, and illuminate pathways, as well as your address so that it can be seen from the street by emergency services personnel.
