Home Repairs Even a Novice Can Manage | Andrew Hutchings | Long Beach, CA

Contrary to popular belief, a professional isn’t needed every time a home repair project has to be done. There are some projects homeowners can take on themselves. When it comes to home repairs, even those novices can do a few projects well. There are many repairs they can attempt, and below are a few examples.

Unclog Drains

If homeowners have a clogged drain, they don’t have to call a plumber. They need the right tools for projects like this. A good plunger and some muscles will help them unclog the drain and quickly pull up the hair and junk.

Refinish The Hardwood Floors

When floors aren’t looking as shiny as owners want, they can refinish them. It will take some time to complete the project, but it will be worth it. They can buff out the floors and get them to look as shiny and good as new.

Fix The Walls And Paint Them

If there’s a hole in the wall, homeowners can quickly repair it. All they need to do is patch the drywall. They can paint over it and paint any other wall they want in the house. Painting is one of the easiest projects they can do.

Make The Cabinets Close Quietly

If the sound of the closing of the cabinet frustrates owners, then they can do a simple fix. They can use a peel and stick bumper to keep the cabinet from hitting the wood. It is easy to do and will make their kitchen feel more high-end.

Use Weatherstripping To Seal The Doors

When the doors let in too much air, then something should be done about it. Weatherstripping is easy to apply to the cracks around the door. They can stick it on quickly or replace the old weatherstripping and seal the door well.

There are many simple projects anyone can do in the home. They can get things done quicker on their own than by hiring a professional and saving some money, too. The more often they do these home projects, the more confident they will be to take care of everything independently.
