Home Maintenance Mistakes to Avoid

Staying on top of home maintenance is no walk in the park. As a homeowner, you may have made a few bad home improvement calls here and there over the years. Today, Handyman Connection® of Orange County discusses common home maintenance errors and shares tips to help you steer clear of them

Tearing Down a Load-Bearing Wall

Remodeling your home can be exhilarating. But before you excitedly tear down that annoying wall between your kitchen and living room to create a more open space, make sure it’s not load-bearing. If you’re ever the least bit uncertain about this, consult with a professional before proceeding with your project.

Digging Indiscriminately

If you’re planning to do some digging, whether for a gardening or fencing project, make sure to call 811 a few days ahead of time so you don’t accidentally hit any utility lines.

Planting a Tree in the Wrong Place

Planting a tree too close to your home will spell trouble. This is because as the tree grows the roots will expand and can weaken your home’s foundation and clog your plumbing. 

Using Glossy Paint on Textured Surfaces

Glossy paint might be a good interior paint choice, but it’s a bad option for rough or textured surfaces. This is because the light from the shiny paint will highlight the flaws of the wall.

Not Hiring a Professional

TV shows and YouTube tutorials make DIY home improvement projects look easy. The reality, however, is often very different. If you’re ever unsure about how to proceed with a project, don’t hesitate to call an experienced professional.
