North Carolina, and Wake County specifically, is among the fastest real estate markets in the country this year. Availability of homes remains low, particularly the starter homes under $300,000. And it’s not just our neighbors that see the value. Of all the transactions in the fourth quarter of 2021, about a quarter of homes were sold to investors.
As you’ve known for years, Raleigh is a great place to live. So if you have a family house, you are enjoying the upward pressure on your home value. However, sometimes the responsibility of home ownership can be overwhelming. Not only did you buy a building, you bought yourself a job! You need to keep up with the yard, the roof, the appliances, and even changing the lightbulbs.
Plumbing chores have the potential for mess and stress. Several tasks can be completed after a youtube video with the tools you already have on hand. Others will definitely need the services of a professional team.
Don’t let every plumbing project scare you. If you have an adjustable wrench, slip joint pliers, a screwdriver, plus access to a hardware store, you can tackle one step at a time. Some small plumbing projects are fairly simple and just take a little patience.
For example, if you notice that your sink is slow to drain, you could try a plunger to push the clog through. For more persistent clog, pour a commercial chemical solution, following all the safety tips.
Installing a new shower head is almost as easy as changing a lightbulb. However, when executing this DIY plumbing project, it’s important to remember to protect your shower head pipe with a rag so it doesn’t get crushed or scratched.
If you notice a pool of water under your sink, or hear a drip, you have a leak. Check to see if any plastic piping has been moved or has become disconnected. If you see that metal pipes or connections are leaking, you’ll need some help from Proven Professional Construction Service. Not only will they be able to fix the leak, their team then makes any repairs needed to the cabinet, floors, or walls.
