It's easy to put off home repairs, especially if they seem like big, daunting tasks. You are only making the problem worse and costing yourself more money by procrastinating. So, what home repairs should you never procrastinate?
Repair a Leaking Roof
The roof keeps everything safe from rain and snow in most homes, so if it falls apart, every room becomes vulnerable to water damage or more. For one, a leaking roof can cause water damage to your home, which can be expensive to repair. When you have a leaking roof, it can lead to the growth of mold and mildew, which can cause respiratory issues. Thus, to avoid extra cost, it's essential to call an expert to help you with your roof repair.
Repair Cracks in Your Walls

When you're selling your home, you want to do all you can to ensure it sells as quickly as possible and for the highest possible price. While the home itself will be the main attraction, it's still important to consider the small details that buyers will inevitably notice.
Some people choose to forego the staging process, thinking it's a waste of time, but it can greatly increase the number of offers you receive. Here are four approaches to take that'll make your home look great when potential buyers come through:
Remove Personal Items
The first thing you want to focus on when staging your home is to make sure to remove any personal affects. Pictures, kids' drawings, certificates or anything else that might identify you needs to be taken down. While there are safety benefits to taking this step, the main reason you want to depersonalize your home is so that any potential buyers can visualize themselves living in your home. If you can capture their imagination, you've already won hal; ...

Regular inspections of your home can help you address issues before they cause any harm, and the new year is the perfect reminder to cross this task off your list. While seasonal home inspections are the ultimate way to stay on top of maintenance and potential risks, performing an in-depth safety check at least once a year will ensure that you identify minor concerns before they become expensive problems.
When performing home safety checks, you’ll want to keep an eye out for anything that could pose a potential threat–reduce the risk of fire, criminal or pest intruders, structural damage or accidents. Doing a complete walkthrough of your home with a checklist is a good idea, but many items on the checklist should be inspected or maintained more than once a year.
What to Look for on Your Home’s Exterior
Water damage can lead to major problems, and this usually begins with issues on the home’s exterior–specifically problems with the roof. Keep an eye out ; ...

It’s no secret that garages are one of the best places to store your belongings, and they come in handy when you’re working on personal DIY projects. Whether you’re looking to list your home or just want to prepare your garage so you can use it more efficiently, it’s important to make sure everything in there is organized, clean and ready to use. Here are a few tips on how to get your garage ready for a listing:
Sort Through Unused Items
If you have way too much stuff in your garage, start by taking some time to go through it all. What’s really worth keeping? If you haven’t used an item in six months or more, maybe you should let it go. Take everything out of your garage and sort through it, because that alone can immediately make your garage feel cleaner and bigger. Then, donate or throw away anything you don’t need or don’t plan on using again.
Repair the Garage Door
It’s not uncommon for older garage doors to be in need of so; ...

Love or anything like that… But then again, most probably like to believe they are. After all - Love is a many splendid thing. When my wife and I were planning our wedding back in 1989 she suggested we reveal to all in attendance words that would convey our LOVE for each other. My favorite Love Description is from 1 Corinthians 13: Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.
It doesn’t matter your ‘religious persuasion’ to say “yea, that IS a great description of LOVE”. I am talking LOVE because February is the Love month, rightly celebrated with Valentine’s Day.
