Spring is coming, which means outside work will be at an all-time high. People will be out and about, purchasing plants to put in the garden and perhaps even buying a new coat of stain for their pool deck. Whatever the case may be, exterior home repair will be the new thing to do on the weekend. However, if you are inexperienced, things can take a quick turn for the worse. Here are some exterior home repair mishaps and how you can avoid them.
Falls and Injury
If you plan on climbing on top of your roof for a roof repair this spring, you should think about the risk. There are fall risks as well as other injuries to consider, especially if you do not have the proper equipment or training for this type of repair. You should always make sure you understand the project, understand your physical capabilities and recruit help if you feel as if you cannot stay steady on a high surface.
Picture it; you decide to take on a huge repair to the shed out back. You go out and purchase what you thought to be all of the materials, only to find you are missing some, halfway through your project. You also realize you do not have the experience necessary to complete the job, leaving you with less cash and an unfinished repair. You should make a list of all of the materials needed prior to starting your repair and always ask your local hardware store for assistance in choosing quality materials. Don’t have the experience? It’s time to ask for help.
Repairs on Top of Repairs
When one thing goes wrong during your repair, it could cause more repairs to be required in the very near future. If you do not have the resources or time to complete those repairs, you could have a mess on your hands. For example, a leaking roof must be patched. However, stepping onto the roof in a place you thought was sturdy and going through it? A much bigger repair.
