Easy Home Repair


How to replace knobs or pulls

Purchase knobs, handles, or drawer pulls that will match your current openings (i.e., the same number of screws in the same positions as what’s already there).

 

How to fix sticky cabinet doors

First locate the source of the problem. Where does the door stick? The easiest way to find out is to take a piece of carbon paper and put it between the edge of the door and the frame.

 

How to repair loose hinges

When cabinet doors don’t hang straight or open smoothly, tighten the screws on the hinges. If the screw holes are worn and the wood won’t hold the screws tight, you can make the following simple repair.

 

Repairing Drawers

If your drawers are giving you trouble, there could be several things at fault. Your first job is to figure out what’s going on. Is your drawer pull or handle loose? Does your drawer fall off the track? Is it hard to open? Is it difficult to slide?

 

How to replace drawer tracks

If you have tried all of the tricks above and find that your drawer is still difficult to open, the rollers and/or tracks may need to be replaced or adjusted. Bottom mount rollers are the easiest to install.

 

Cleaning Gutters

Keeping gutters clean is a task that is so often over looked—and yet so important. Why? Because of Mother Nature’s gifts of rain and fire.

 

How to patch a small or large area of stucco

This simple repair method works well for damaged areas that are less than two square feet. For more extensive damage, the stucco will have to be removed all the way to the wall surface and rebuilt in layers.
