If your home has concrete steps, there may come a time when a little repair is necessary. Depending on the age of your steps or their exposure to the elements, the level of damage can vary. Though it may seem intimidating, the job isn’t too difficult.
We all know that the deck is the place to be when it comes to barbecuing and relaxing in the sun. With all of the time and money invested in your deck, doesn’t it make sense to enjoy it as often as possible?
Sitting around the fire. It’s a tradition that goes back further than recorded history and is one that has endured for many reasons. The simplest of which is that it’s just plain relaxing.
As most homeowners know, squeaky floors come with the territory. Usually the older the house, the more squeaks you have to contend with. While they may come in handy for detecting intruders or midnight-snackers, they are mostly just annoying.
As soon as the snow melts and the ground is somewhat thawed, it is the perfect time to start getting your deck ready for spring. This way, you can spend more time relaxing and enjoying your deck later on in the warm summer sun. Winter is often hard on decks; especially those made of all wood.
The beauty of sheet rock (also referred to as drywall), is that it’s very easy to repair. With just a few tools and materials, it is a job that can easily be accomplished by the average homeowner; leaving the wall as if the damage had never occurred.
A common complaint by homeowners who use a forced hot air heating system is that there can be a lot of dust build up. Of course, that is why filters are used in the heating system. But what if you’ve just replaced your filter and still are dealing with more dust than usual?
The functional purpose of moldings, such as baseboard, chair rail and door casings is to protect the more delicate wall materials (most commonly plaster and sheetrock) from damage. The problem is, when molding does its job, it begins to look a little shabby.
When it comes to energy use in your home, only the kitchen rivals the bathroom. If your home has more than one bathroom, the energy use can increase even more. Large amounts of heat, water and lighting are used in the bathroom every day, by every member of the household.
