May is National Home Improvement Month, but with so many home projects to tackle, where do you start? According to Mark Clement, a professional contractor and host of MyFixitUpLife home improvement radio show, there is a “must do” list of six exterior home features that homeowners should review every year .
Here is one of Clement’s “must do” tips:
Look at your home’s accessory features. Spend time with your shutters, trim and louvers to see if they’re rotting or deteriorating. Check the bottoms and tops of columns and near the joints in crown and other mouldings for water spots, decay or peeling paint to see if they’re deteriorating in any way. They may also be suffering from termites, insect infestations or warping. When it’s time to replace these items, select low-maintenance urethane or PVC products, which are lightweight pieces are easy to install, add instant curb appeal to your home and extremely durable with their weather-resistant feature.
