There are so many ways you can save a little money in your Yardley homethrough simple home improvement projects. Some of the best ways you can save money, not to mention boost the value of your home if you are considering selling, include the following:
- Paint some of the outdated rooms. If you have a 2 story foyer or vaulted ceilings you may want to consider hiring a professional painter for those rooms. However, you can easily paint your kitchen, bathroom, hallways and bedrooms yourself. Invite some friends and family members over for a painting party – or do it yourself gradually over a course of time. A fresh coat of paint will brighten up any room while making it more enjoyable in which to live.
- Stain your deck. Deck stain is relatively inexpensive and doesn’t require many tools other than a paintbrush. Staining your deck protects it from water damage and gives it a fresh new look on the outside of your home.
- Replace the caulk around your window frames, tile backsplashes and around sinks. Over time, caulk slowly begins to wear off. If not replaced, it can lead to water damage. Be sure to replace caulk around these troublesome areas every couple of years to ensure more costly repairs will never have to happen.
- 4. Clogged drains – no problem. A simple and affordable solution to a clogged drain is a snake, which can be easily maneuvered through the clog and assist in pulling the clog out through the drain. If “snaking” the drain does not work, you can try a commercial product such as Liquid Plumr to break up the clog and help it move through the pipe.
Some home improvement projects do require the helping hand of a professional. If you do not feel comfortable fixing a drain or painting, do not hesitate to call a professional who can assist you.
