Home Improvement Construction Tips 1-5

These informational tips have allowed me to saves hundreds of dollars in home repairs and improvements and I'd like to share some of these tips with you to get you into the mood to do 'stuff' around your home!

#1 Pressure Treated lumber - Chemical preservatives help to prolong the life of the wood. Remember to cut this wood outside, wash your hands after handling, and do no burn!

#2 Engineered Lumber - Maximizes wood resources, often is recycled wood content.

#3 Steel studs - Alternative building material with recycled steel content.

#4 Roof windows and skylights - Natural light saves on lighting costs; roof windows provide ventilation and light.

#5 High-efficiency fireplace inserts - The most efficient air quality and heating alternative to wood, wax or gas logs. Fan log stands can add several degrees of heat to your room as heat blows out through tubes.

Every so often I will bring some more of these valuable tips for you to read and enjoy.
