In the US, homes with Black or Charcoal
Front Doors are Sold for More.
The color of your front door can have an impact on the sale price of your home. According to a study conducted by Zillow, homes with black or charcoal front doors are sold for more than homes with other colors of front doors. The study found that homes with black front doors sold for an average of $6,271 more than homes with white front doors. This trend is thought to be due to the perceived sophistication and modernity of black front doors,
which can make a home stand out and appeal to potential buyers.

Gutter Maintenance

Sagging and clogged gutters can overflow, causing damage to the soffit and fascia on the eaves of your home. To prevent this from happening, it’s important to keep gutters clean and properly maintained.

See our helpful checklist below to maintain your gutters:

Clean Gutters: Check gutters regularly to make sure they are clean, and remove any leaves or other debris. You can install gutter guards to prevent leaves and debris from accumulating in your gutters (see picture below).

Secure Gutters: To repair sagging or loose gutters, replace the gutter spikes with gutter screws, using a cordless drill. Gutter screws hold much better than standard gutter spikes, providing support and security.

Seal Leaks: Use a hose to check the joints and seams for leaks. To repair a leaking joint, clean the area thoroughly and apply silicone caulk to seal it.

Repair Downspouts: Make sure that downspouts are clear of leaves and other debris, and that any joints fit together properly.

Water Runoff: Check to see that the water coming out of downspouts is diverted away from your home using splash blocks, a downspout extension, or irrigation pipe.

home improvement, construction, or design.
