TOM: When holiday guests travel over the river and through the woods for a visit, why not make sure they can spot your house numbers? Hi, I’m Tom Kraeutler.
LESLIE: And I’m Leslie Segrete with today’s Money Pit Home Improvement Minute.
TOM: Hard-to-spot house numbers aren’t just frustrating for visitors; they also waste time when emergency personnel need to find you and your home. To prevent confusion, display large, clear numbers on both your home and your mailbox.
LESLIE: If you have a long driveway or an obscure entrance, make sure your address is easily visible to those driving by and illuminate it after dark.
TOM: In some communities you can have your house number spray painted on the curb with reflective paint. Check with your town to see if this service is available where you live.
LESLIE: By making your house number more visible you’ll help keep your family safe and visitors happy. I’m Leslie Segrete.
