TOM: When holiday guests travel over the river and through the woods for a visit it’s a good idea to make sure they can spot your house by the 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 can also slow emergency response if they need to find your home. To prevent confusion, display large, clear numbers on both your home and your mailbox.
LESLIE: If you have a long driveway or hard-to-spot entrance make sure your address is easily visible to those driving by, and illuminate it after dark.
TOM: If your community allows you can also spray paint your house numbers on your curb with reflective paint.
LESLIE: By making your house number more visible you’ll help keep your family safe and your visitors happy. I’m Leslie Segrete.
