New homeowners may not know exactly what to look for during a home inspection. Curb appeal is more important than you might guess. Landscaping can make a huge difference in the value of a home. There are codes for everything, including sidewalks, driveways and poured concrete surfaces outside your home. Here’s what your home inspector should be looking for when inspecting poured concrete patios, sidewalks and driveways.
Use color as much as possible. Colorful pavers are the best driveway features that are in vogue now. Random colors also give novel appearance and they become a unique way to cheer up the guests.
PROMOTE YOUR SERVICE BUSINESS ONLINE OR SELL YOUR OWN PRODUCT ONLINE. From massage parlors (the legit kind) to dentists to attorneys, there just isn’t a corner of the business world that couldn’t benefit from a good website. Have online coupons for your customers, both from your business and from affiliated businesses. Or do you create jewelry? Write children’s books? Design stained glass doors? The internet is made for you. Nowhere else can you reach such a wide audience, at such a low price. And it’s not just for “creative” folks. One of the most successful webmasters I know sells kits for people to set up their own concreting business. Honest.
OK so which one do I choose? Sorry but there is not a true answer I can give but based on the facts I can help make an informed decision. But there are two major factors that stick come into play right in the beginning.
OCheck for wrinkles in your wallpaper, gaps between the wall and moldings, or cracks in the sheetrock. Also, look at your windows and see if the frames are distorted. Examine every doorway; see if your doors stick or if the door frames have cracks. Major cracks (/16 wide or larger) or bowing (exceeding 1-1/2″ vertically in 7ft. 2-1/2″ horizontally in 16 ft) of basement walls is a cause for concern.
Identify the material the rug is made out of. Most wool, nylon, and polypropolene rugs are cleanable if they do not contain glue. I would consult a professional if the one is made of cotton, silk, or Rayon.
Once the surface is clean and gives a uniform impression, it’s time for sealer application. Concrete is a porous material and oils and dirt get easily locked in them. The ideal way to keep these out of your driveway is sealing its surface. These sealants can be easily applied like paint and will provide a shiny appearance. At times, they may even give a wet look to your entrance way.
