Add Protection to Your Curb Appeal

By Jessie Tompkins-Howards, Due East Real Estate

Peeling, flaking paint in the smallest of areas can detract from your home's curb appeal.  Painting or touching up problem areas on your trim work, decks, doors and clapboards can not only improve appearance, but better protects them.  


While you have the paint brush out, check exterior door frames and bulkheads, making sure these areas are properly painted, stained, or treated.  This will help keep the moisture out and prevent some swelling and heaving that we experience in the winter months.
