Home Help: DIY home upkeep projects for every season

    TIP OF THE WEEK

    Homeowners can avoid emergency repairs by completing a few home projects each season. A simple project such as inspecting the plumbing annually can prevent the unexpected cost of repairing water damage from a pipe that burst. Chris Terrill, CEO of HomeAdvisor, offers maintenance tips to help homeowners save money:

    Spring

    • Plumbing: Every spring inspect all plumbing for leaks. Small problems, like leaky faucets and clogged drains can turn into big headaches if left unchecked. The average cost of hiring a plumber to repair pipes is $411; repairing water damage can cost seven times that amount.

    Summer

    • Paint: In the summer, touching up the home’s exterior not only boosts its curb appeal, but it also acts as a home’s defense against weather and other damage. If a homeowner neglects to complete this task, completely repainting the home’s exterior costs an average of $3,180.
