New Homeowners Ten Most Popular Home Repairs

by James Cummings on Jul 10, 2019

They may seem less glamorous compared to a new deck or kitchen remodel, but these are the most popular DIY projects new homeowners can take on.

Rubbish Disposal

A periodic trend every homeowner can expect is for a garbage disposal repair to creep up at a point, and it’s still is one of the most prevalent issues faced by new homeowners. Whether you already own a home or are thinking of buying one, ensure you learn the basics on how to replace a garbage disposal. It will help you save money. Also, you can prevent future problems when you take note of certain items and elements you should never throw down a garbage disposal.

Running Toilet

A running toilet might not be as complicated to repair as you imagine, however, no one loves it running: the toilet. It's vital that you get things right because, in the long-term, a cheap fix can end up costing you more, as is the case with any other plumbing mistakes.

Bathroom Caulking

At some point, all bathrooms will need new caulks, and for new homeowners, it could be something they have a hard time getting a grip on. But don't fret, everyone can caulk a bathroom after going through a how-to caulking guide. In fact, you will find out that you can successfully achieve a successful home remodel yourself.

Leaking Faucet

After spending a sizable amount in acquiring your new home, the last thing you want to do is drop a heap of loot on any little issue that creeps up. A faucet that starts dripping and leaking at every given time will definitely wind you up, but don't let it cost you money. At very little cost, you can fix it yourself.

Blocked Drains

A few homeowners may not have had to repair a clogged drain in the past because they rented. While that's good, when you eventually own and don't want to do it yourself, hiring the services of a professional could come in handy. But dealing with a blocked drain can be as easy as following simple guides to unlock it. You’ll just need to ensure that certain foreign elements do not go down the sink into the drain.

Leaking Pipe

The thought of this can make any homeowner cringe, not to mention the repairs involved and the costs that follow. But there are things you can do to repair that copper pipe on your own. A quick search online and you are fully equipped to fix that leaking pipe on your own.

Cracked Siding/Peeling Siding Paint

You might want to give a call to another person to repair your peeling or cracked siding. But you'd be surprised to learn that it could take as little as a $5 tool! This is a common repair task for new homeowners that want their home in perfect shape immediately they pay for it.

Nail Pops

It's common for nails to pop Putin homes due to shrinking wood studs. They'll have your walls looking gross and ugly. But, fixing popped nails is quite easy, although repairing drywall appears difficult.

Patching Drywall

It takes a fair amount of time to get used to a new house, and it won't be out of place having door knob swing through the drywall. New homeowners can learn how to fix such issues with specific tips.

Fractured/Cracked Concrete

This is not only an eyesore, but it can present threats to safety just like similar home repairs you'll need to go through before someone gets injured. Also, if you have cracked concrete in your basement or garage, there are tips to help you fix it.

If you are planning to move home, be prepared to carry out some of these repairs. If you are the roll-up-your-sleeves type, then you can look forward to getting your hands to work. If you are not, then it is a challenge worth looking forward to. The moving process does not end with arriving at your new house, it ends when you successfully convert your new house into a cozy home. Depending on the level of repairs needed, your skillset and other factors, you may decide to make these repairs yourself, or contact professionals to help you.
