Buying a foreclosure property can be risky, especially for the novice. Usually, you buy a foreclosure property as is, which means there is no warranty implied for the condition of the property (in other words, you can't go back to the seller for repairs). The condition of foreclosure properties is usually not known because an inspection of the interior of the house is not possible before the sale. In addition, there may be problems with the title, though that is something you can check out before the purchase.
A myth of metal roofing is that it is noisy. Metal roofs with solid sheathing and insulation control noise from rain, hail and bad weather just as well as any other roofing material.
While screwdrivers may look like pry bars, chisels, punches and scrapers, they should never be used for such purposes. A screwdriver is most effective when its blade is straight, balanced and sharp. Misusing yours will keep it from performing best when you need it to do what you bought it to do...drive screws. Also, be sure that the handle is clean and free of slippery oil or grease.
Water new shrubs once a week the first summer with 5 to 10 gallons of water for each depending on the size of the bush. Take care to get the water under any mulch, which absorbs a great deal of moisture and robs the soil below. Pour water right down the stems so it goes into the root ball, and does not run off on the ground. During very hot sunny days, spray the tops and water lightly in addition to the weekly deep watering. Do not fertilize the first year, except possibly for half strength liquid fertilizer at planting time, or plant rooting hormone additives one can use. Fertilize normally the second year in the spring.
