December Monthly Home Repair and Maintenance Tips and Ideas


Winter officially begins this month so it's time to finish those outside projects before the snow begins.  If you plan to put up outside decorations, remember to get  the necessary help and don't attempt to do electrical or other projects yourself that your are not experienced to handle.  If your plans call for climbing a ladder, make sure there is someone there to hold it & never try to climb alone.
