Home Repairs Your Can Do Yourself
Do not be frightened by home repairs. With a little investigation and confidence, most home repairs are less difficult than they seem. With all of the free information available on the Internet, in the library, local home improvement centers and friends even difficult home repairs can be accomplished without the need of hiring a professional. The problem is that many of these home repairs can seem unapproachable to an inexperienced homeowner.
Most homeowners have no idea how the inside of a toilet tank works, how to shut the gas off to their water heater, how to relight a pilot light, how to install a thermostat for your heating & cooling system. But most people do have the ability to fix their toilet, change the thermocouple on their water heater, relight a pilot light, caulk around the tub, and replace a light switch. The first thing that is needed has to be the willingness to try. There is a great sense of accomplishment to be had when you take care of these things yourself without spending the money to call a service person.
