  1. Use Zip Ties

If you’re going to hang a lot of bright orange lights, invest in a package of zip ties. They come in a variety of sizes and colors that help them look more discrete. Plus, they’re cheap!

  1. All-Purpose Light Clips

Want to hang decorations on your gutters or siding? Buy all-purpose light clips — you can buy a 100 pack for about $10.

  1. Duct Tape The Cords Down

Sometimes, it's unavoidable to keep extension cords away from where the trick-or-treaters will be. If that’s the case with your decorations, use duct tape to secure the cords to the surface. This helps reduce the chance of someone tripping.

  1. Use A Timer

No one wants to wake up in the middle of the night to go turn off the lights and decorations. Save yourself the trip and put on an outside timer.

  1. Leverage Your Outlets

Don’t plug all of your lights into one single outlet. If you have more than three strings of lights together, it’s time to use another outlet.

Traditional

Craftsman

This type of door can be seen on cottage-styled homes or even resorts in the mountains. craftsman-style doors are made from wood or fiberglass and often feature one window at the top. You’ll also typically find a craftsman door with stained glass, wood-outlined panes, and rectangular-shaped raised panels across the bottom.

Rustic doors are often seen on cabins and homes that feature wood or stone exteriors. These doors are thick, and have raised panels, scored lines, and clear glass.

Arched

Arched doors may fit into the other popular door designs, but we still had to give them their own category! Their curved design gives them a distinctive look and appeal you can’t find with the other doors. More than likely, an arched door will be a special order made for your home or business.

The ABC's Of Windows:

Wainscoting - This describes the decorative paneling that lines the lower half of the interior wall.

Wall Insulation - Insulation is placed between the wall studs to slow down air moving between the inside and outside of a home.

Wall Sheathing - Sheets of plywood nailed to the outside face of the wall studs that serve as a base for exterior siding.

Water Repellent System - An exterior coating system that temporarily protects against water.

Waterproofing - Waterproofing prevents moisture, unlike a water repellent system.

Weather Stripping - This is when certain materials — like rubber, metal, wood, or plastic — are installed around the door and window openings to prevent air filtration.

Window Casting - The decorative strips surrounding and finishing the exterior and interior sides of the window or door opening.

Weep Holes - To allow water to drain, small holes are placed at the bottom of walls, windows, or along the edge of flat roofs or decks.
