Don't keep your refrigerator or freezer too cold. Recommended temperatures are 37° to 40°F for the fresh food compartment of the refrigerator and 5°F for the freezer section. If you have a separate freezer for long-term storage, it should be kept at 0°F.
When installing roof shingles, do not nail above the sealant strips or the mid-section of the shingle.
Here are few things to keep in mind when applying wallpaper: New Walls - Must be thoroughly cured, dry, primed and sized. Previously painted walls - Fill cracks or holes with patching paste, then sand smooth. Spot-prime the patches and size all walls to be papered. Walls with old wallcovering - Remove, patch, sand and clean. Be sure the old adhesive is gone and the walls are completely dry before sizing.
Ice that may have formed over the winter in gutters can cause the gutter to pull away from the house as well as break seals in gutter joints and downspout connections. Loose or clogged gutters can allow rain to run over your fascia board, into your eaves, and ultimately into your house. Loose gutters can also allow rain to collect near your foundation causing your basement to leak. Gutter cleaning, inspections and repairs generally require using an extension ladder which can present a potentially dangerous situation. It is recommended that this task be performed by your local licensed handyman or gutter service.
