Reviews
Praise for Home Improvement: Undead Edition : “The authors do a fine job of exploring the danger of the DIY movement. The tone ranges from silly (“It’s All in the Rendering”) to classic horror (“The Mansion of Imperatives”)…there is no lack of imagination in this collection…This is definitely one of the most fun books you will read this summer.”- San Francisco Book Review “These are delightful, entertaining and chilling stories. Some of them you’ll be carrying around in your head for days. Do yourself a favor and spend a rainy afternoon with this book.”- Fresh Fiction “Fun, different and often surprising compilation of short stories…This collection is a treat; the stories are strong and most reward the reader with a pleasing plot twist. The paranormal element added to the mundane yet trying experience of home or business renovation was an inspired theme certain to strike a cord with anyone who has lived the experience. Just the thing to enjoy on a languid summer day with a tall glass of cold lemonade.”- Monsters and Critics Praise for the editors’ previous collections: “Exceptional authors
a captivating collection.” -Darque Reviews “Entertaining and worth reading. This excellent collection will appeal to the growing legion of paranormal fans.” – Library Journal “Experienced genre hands ensure the high quality.” – Booklist “Fresh, interesting tales

Don’t Pay Someone For Simple Repairs

Home improvement doesn’t need to be difficult. As long as you can plan properly and learn the right information, you should be able to tackle any project you set your mind to. Read on to learn a few simple ideas that can help make your next home improvement job a snap, instead of an ordeal.

Use a porch light with motion sensors to illuminate your yard while saving costs on your electric bill. The light can still be turned on manually, and you can adjust the sensitivity on most models.

If you want to put two PVC pipes together, you will need PVC cement and PVC primer. You should always use products made for this type of material. On top of that, the pipe surfaces should not be wet with water.

When you start your improvement jobs, don’t be quick to demolish. You have to be able to see what you are tearing down before you remove something. If you mess up electrical components, then you will incur extra costs.

Insulating your attic should help you reduce your energy bill. Because heat rises, many homes with poor insulation lose heat through the roof during the cold weather months. Installing insulation is a fairly straightforward process and it’s freely available at hardware stores and home improvement centers.

Get references from anyone you hire to do improvements at your home. It’s just like hiring an employee. Do a background check and make certain they have good references from former clients.

If you are using your cushions a lot they will get flat. Sitting chair cushions in the sun helps them fluff back up to life. Sun exposure gets rid of the moisture trapped in the cushion’s fillings, which in turn makes them nice and bouncy. Be certain to flip the cushions over often, and bring them inside when possible so that the fabric does not fade in the sunshine.

Installing a new sink is a great way to freshen up a kitchen that’s starting to look old and dingy. It makes the room look brighter and better right away. You can find sinks in various sizes, design styles and colors. They can help you to achieve the finished look you are after.

Another way to enhance your landscaping for showing your house is to plant mature flowers instead of seedlings. Flowers that are matured will give an instant beautiful look, and they also will fill in any spaces. Seedlings might not mature quickly to give you the enhancement that you need. Buyers tend to be more amicable to a home that will require less work once purchased.

Completing your remodeling with no issues is what you want to work towards. You will find that there will come a time when repairs and upgrades are needed. Making a home more livable and more valuable is easily possible for homeowners who are prepared to put in work above and beyond these minimum necessities. Use the above tips and techniques to learn everything you can about home improvement.
