Make sure to seal the top and bottom edges of all doors with a finish coat of paint or sealer to prevent moisture infiltration.
Removing old, cracked, and brittle shingles for replacement is easy. Here's how: assemble an assortment of flatbars and shingle removers. To remove a number of shingles at once, start at the bottom and work your way up. Pry shingles from the side to avoid flying splinters and nails. In a short time, the exposed sheathing is ready for re-shingling with new material.
Before you tear into a repair job, start by checking for the simplest cause instead of assuming the worst. For example, before replacing fuses or breakers, first check for burned-out bulbs. If a faucet is working poorly, check for debris lodged in the faucet's aerator before tearing the faucet apart. Likewise, first make sure equipment and appliances are plugged in. By checking for the simple causes when a problem occurs you can save yourself from wasting time, effort and money in making unnecessary repairs.
