Prevent creaks and squeaks in wood flooring with construction adhesives. It is best to work your way up from inside the crawlspace or in the basement. With a caulker, put some glue on all the floor joists, so that glue secures subfloor planks to each joist.
Consider adding extra insulation during your next project. Use weather-stripping on all windows and doors. This will reduce the exchange of air from the outside of your home to the inside and vice versa. All of your cooling and heating systems will be more efficient. Money saved means money to be placed towards more important projects around the house.
Install peepholes on your doors. It is helpful to be able to see who is on the other side of the door before you open it up. This easy-to-install project is an inexpensive home improvement. The only tool you’ll need is a drill, and the project takes very little time to complete. Doing this will make it so that you can ensure that you do not open the door for someone that may not be welcome.
