Check all faucets and pipes
To save money on home maintenance, check all of your faucets and pipes for leaks and have them repaired quickly. Leaking faucets can waste quite a bit of water, costing you in higher bills. Also, pipes that are leaking within your walls or under your house can lead to serious water damage.
Make sure you take before and after photos of any work or improvements you do to your home. You may like to look back on all the hard work and changes when it feels like the project as a whole will never be done. Keep pictures on your computer or have them printed for a scrapbook.
Update your bathroom to make your house feel like a home. Every member of the family spends quite a bit of time in this room, but we often overlook giving it an update during a remodel. You can do easy changes by replacing wallpapers, lighting fixtures, and cabinetry, to create a fresh look.
Resurface the concrete walkways and driveways around your home for a new look. Replacing concrete can get incredibly expensive and doesn’t add much to the curb appeal of your home. Consider resurfacing with cobblestone or brick which will cost a fraction of replacing concrete and will look like a million bucks.
When you upgrade your home, the job can be large. You need to get the basics down to do the improvements correctly, but you do not need to be a professional either. Keep all of the tips fresh in the front of your mind and start chopping away at the needed jobs once they’ve had time to soak.
