Make your home easy to find with nice, bold house numbers. They make a dramatic statement on the front of a house, and they’re a real convenience for visitors or delivery persons looking for an address. You’ll find house numbers in a wide range of sizes and styles, not to mention prices, sold in specialty catalogs and at home centers and hardware stores. Depending on their design, the numerals are installed with screws or fasteners.

We found 6-inch high polished brass satin nickel numerals at a home center for $5 to $7 a piece, making replacing them an easy-on-the budget facelift for any house exterior. A handyman will remove the old numerals and install new ones for $138, but you can do it for $55 and save 60 percent.

Here’s a website with a wide selection of house numbers Architectural Numbers.

Take some time deciding on the location for the numerals in daylight and at night, noting if the porch light shines its light on them. You may have to do some coverup work to conceal the holes left from the old numerals. And if you’re planning to paint the siding, wait to install new numerals until after the job is completed.

That sums it up. Knowing the average cost to install house numbers lets you compare doing it yourself with what you can expect to pay a contractor.
