Home Repair Do's and Don'ts

  • Never do plumbing repairs on Saturday. It will cost a fortune to get the real plumber to repair your work on Sunday.
  • Always double the amount of time you estimate for a job you’ve done before. Triple it for a new one.
  • A new tool should be purchased for every project. The quality of your tools directly affects the quality of your work and price is a direct indicator of tool quality.
  • Never start a new project by going to Home Depot on Saturday morning.
  • Don’t worry about making table legs exactly the same height. That’s what matchbook covers are for.
  • If you want to know how those hairs got into your varnish, ask the cat.
