  • Home improvement projects to avoid

    Posted Under: Remodel & Renovate in California, Design & Decor in California  |  April 6, 2012 4:50 AM  |  793 views  |  2 comments

    Many home improvement projects can increase a home's value and functionality while others may only jumpstart a slew of needed replacements. HGTV has come up with a list of expensive improvement mistakes that homeowners with real estate in Marina Del Rey and other parts of Southern California should avoid.

    According to the source, homeowners should not overlook safety precautions while completing projects as actions such as overloading outlets can lead to a more costly repair. The network suggests turning off breakers while working with the home's electrical systems and wearing safety goggles when needed.

    While painting can be a relatively inexpensive do-it-yourself project, HGTV advises not skipping a coat of primer before painting, as it will not only seal the surface but provide durability for years ahead. The source says primer may not always be necessary but should be applied when making a dramatic change in color.

    Even if a project seems easy, the network indicates the importance of homeowners hiring a professional when one is needed. When looking for a service such as a licensed electrician or plumber, HGTV says to make sure they are qualified for the job that is needed.

  • Simple Repair Projects to Get Your Home in Shape for Spring

    Posted Under: Home Selling in Los Angeles, Remodel & Renovate in Los Angeles, Design & Decor in Los Angeles  |  April 6, 2012 4:38 AM  |  912 views  |  1 comment

    Now that spring has officially arrived, homeowners across the country are taking advantage of the warm weather and longer days by taking care of home repair projects that may have been placed on hold throughout the winter months. In fact, spring fix-ups are a necessity after houses have been bruised and battered throughout the long winter months.

    Mr. Handyman, one of the largest employers of handymen nationwide, has released a list of the top five actions homeowners should take to get their houses in shape for spring:

    Gutter Installation/Cleaning – Gutters, one of the most underrated aspects of any home, will extend the life of the roof, soffits and fascia of a house. For the integrity of the roof, having the gutters cleaned is highly recommended.

    Window Frame Repair – It's time to let in the fresh air and cool breezes. This is especially tricky with a busted window, which happens frequently when the weather is cold.

    Power Washing Services – Getting the house, deck, and patio furniture professionally power washed can really increase curb appeal. Not only does power washing reduce wear and tear, it makes everything look good as new.

    Deck Repair – Perform a careful inspection of the deck to determine areas that will need attention. Are railings solidly fastened? Is the surface splintered or have nails exposed? Does any framing need to be replaced? Make a list of all the work to be done to stay safe this summer.

    Wood Rot Repair – Wood rot usually means there is underlying damage caused by water leaking behind the siding or between seams. Oftentimes, the leaking and rotting began years before, hidden from sight. Underneath, however, soaked wood has begun to rot and may be infested with insects.
