What does your front door say?

Ok, so we don't have snow in Las Vegas but you get the Idea?

Colorful Entry Door

What: Splash your entry door with bold color to brighten the facade.

Why: Entry door upgrades are good investments — switching a vinyl door for a steel one recoups 85.6% of its value at selling time.

How: Pick a semi-gloss, exterior paint; don’t apply below 40 degrees (oil-based paint) or 50 degrees (acrylic-based paint). Cold temps prolong drying times and produce a brittle finish.

Cost: $40/gal.
