Fast Fixes You Can Do Around The House

, , Comment closed


In every home, there are half-finished projects that will never see the light of day. The reason for this is time. Not everyone has four or more hours to fix the roof without the help of contractors, check their plumbing system, and so forth. But don’t worry, there are also projects that you can do quickly around the house.

Install A New Lock

The latter is not a privilege. It is a necessity to have around the house. This is for the safety of not only your precious things, but your family too. As locks requiring codes and safety pins are too intricate and consumes time if you are not techie, you can settle for a traditional deadbolt or chain lock. It can be installed in under an hour if you are good with screws, and serves the same purpose.

Windows and Door Fixes

That squeaky door and hard to shut window is bothersome. It compromises security and is also irritating to hear, especially at night. Fix it quickly by doing one of the following; adjusting the screws or lubricating the rollers. It can also be that your window and door is too old to do its function. If you determine that it is the case, it is time for replacement.

Cracking Paint and Wallpaper

As walls take up a huge space in your house, sometimes people focus on it more than your decor. If your wallpaper is peeling and your paint looks like it hasn’t been replaced for decades, do the right thing and reapply. The best part is attaching the wallpaper will only take 15 or so minutes, depending on the damage.

Unstable Chairs and Tables

A screw or nail is at fault there somewhere. You can easily tighten the screws and reinforce the durability of your furniture by adding nails. Simple yet it will not take you too much time.

Some projects may be too long, but there are also those that will not last for a few minutes. If your schedule is fully booked, settle for immediate fixes like this. A reminder though, you still have to dedicate time for the long-term projects because it will benefit your family.
