DIY home repair tipsWhen it comes to repairing things around your home, hiring a professional handyman is essential to making sure they are done right. However, if you’re inclined to tackle a few things yourself in order to save a buck or two, we’d encourage you to try. (and then if you get stuck, we can help bail you out! 🙂  In this article, we take a look at how to complete some of the more common repair jobs that typically crop up around the home.

Leaky Faucet

Typically, the main problem that arises with faucets is that they leak, and that leak is usually down to a worn out washer, as these washers are made of rubber which perishes over time. To replace a washer, all you need to do is to turn off the water supply and unscrew the handle to remove the old washer and replace it.

Painting

It is easy to give your home a fresh new look with a fresh coat of paint, but this may take a lot more work than you’re up for. In order to lower the costs of redecorating, you can simply touch up the paintwork in your home from time to time. The biggest problem here is color matching, although this is a lot easier if you still have some of the original paint leftover. If you don’t have the original formula, cut out a piece of the drywall in a place where no one will ever see it. Take the 1″x1″ chip in with you to Home Depot or Lowes and they can match the color for you, or ask your Colorado Springs Handyman to do it for you.

Guttering

Even though gutters almost go unnoticed when you are looking at your home, they are actually an integral part of your property and they need to be maintained properly. This is due to the fact that gutters are there to collect rainwater and funnel it safely away from your home to the drains.

In order to keep your guttering working to maximum efficiency, you need to make sure that you clean your guttering on a regular basis. This is because debris can accumulate in the guttering especially during the winter months. Leaf, twigs and other objects can accumulate and block the flow of water to the drain, so every so often, you will need to unclog your guttering.
