New Home Owner Helpful Hints

There are lots of projects you really can do yourself!

When you become a new home owner, you may be tempted to call a professional for just about every item on your to-do list. This can become very costly, fairly quickly. The good news is, there are lots of projects you can do for yourself, without too much difficulty.

  1.

  2. Fixing squeaking doors – Carefully apply lubricant to noisy hinges. Use a cloth to make sure there aren’t any drips that could potentially stain the door or the surrounding carpet or other surfaces. You’ll be surprised how much more you enjoy your home without a constant squeaking reminder that something must be fixed.
  3. Replacing and/or repairing screens –  Patch kits with easy to follow directions are sold in hardware stores across the country. They work well and when directions are followed, new home owner s can be assured of solid fix, not an eyesore. If the tear is large enough it may  require replacing the entire screen. When purchasing the materials, be sure to get a color and screening density to match your existing screens. The tools to replace the spline as well as the spline itself are fairly inexpensive. They can be purchased at a local hardware store and will more than likely be right next to the patch kits…
