4 Home Fixes Worth A Lot

Posted on

If your house sorely needs a makeover, but remodeling is beyond your reach, try these four simple fixes:

Touch-up exteriors.

Repainting the trim and front door of your house can significantly boost its curb appeal. This kind of retouching work is easy on the budget and only takes a couple of hours.

Replace your floors.

The widespread availability of affordable “floating floors” (flooring options that can be installed on top of existing boards or linoleum) makes updating the floors in your rec room or pantry a cinch.

Update your hardware.

Switching out old light fixtures and faucets is a simple & affordable way to modernize your home. While you’re at it, update to energy saving light fixtures to save money on your electricity bill. Even just switching out old drawer pulls can make a world of difference in the eyes of a buyer.

Transform your yard.

Landscaping doesn’t have to break the bank. Replacing overgrown shrubs and bushes and adding some flowers for color is an economical way to add value to your home. Many home repairs can be easily mastered by determined do-it-yourselfers, but there are still some things best left to the experts. If you need to re-floor your entire house, contact a flooring service, and call in the electricians whenever you’re dealing with circuit boards or wiring in the walls.
