For some, home improvement is a weekend pleasure. For others, it is a life-consuming event. These projects can help you increase the value of your home. And as with any investment, there’s always the chance for disaster. You can make the best choices if you take your time and follow this advice.
New furniture is oft times very expensive. Instead of buying new you can get creative by finding unique pieces that are gently used. There are often some real gems hiding amongst used items. Of course, some of the deals may need a little elbow grease before they are up to par, but this is a small price to pay.
Put nail holes in your paint can rim. This lip on the paint can will fill with paint, when replacing the lid it can cause the paint to spill over. Driving several holes in the circumference of the lid should do the trick.
Add some protection to all of your floors before painting. The protection will keep wet paint from ruining your carpet and floors. Layering your floor with old newspapers is an inexpensive method to protect it. Alternatively, you can use plastic sheeting or a painter’s tarp to keep paint drips off of your floors.
If you are thinking about buying a home, be sure to look at the ceilings, the decks and the paint job for signs of water damage. Professional inspectors can spot other issues, such as structural and electrical defects. While hiring a quality inspector will cost a bit, it can save you a lot of cash in the long run since you avoid expensive surprises after you have closed on your home.
