If you’re like most homeowners, saving money has become a necessity rather than just something desirable. For that reason, a lot of homeowners want to do anything they can for themselves, and this strays into a lot of different areas. One of those is the way we buy furniture. If you’ve shopped for tables, chairs, bed frames, dressers, or any other items of furniture recently, you probably have an idea of how much you’ll pay for a finished item. But that cost can be cut considerably by picking up furniture second-hand and refinishing it yourself.
When you shop for furniture to refinish, look past the surface. If the paint flakes or the stain is poorly applied, that’s not important. If there’s unsightly structural damage, something that changes not just the color and sheen but the shape and texture of the item, pass it by. In this way, you can get some very nice bargains by choosing items that aren’t necessarily attractive – as long as the poor appearance occurs for the right reason.
The same applies to your own existing furniture that may need a makeover. Doing it yourself can save you money either for buying new furniture or for having your old furniture refinished professionally.
It’s also a good idea to develop a plan: a general theme or look that will be pleasing to your eye and your family’s, and that will go well with the interior décor. This will determine whether you want to paint or stain, and what colors and shades, and how natural and rustic or polished and refined you want your furniture to appear. From this follows how much stripping you need to do, and what tools and finishing supplies you will need.
The following are some of the items you will absolutely require, no matter what your decisions:
Paintbrushes (you will use these for almost any type of finish)
Safety glasses or goggles
Cotton rags (lots of these!)
Sandpaper – generally 120 and 220 grit up to 400 grit
Wood filler for holes
Very fine steel wool
Other materials and tools will vary depending on the type of finish that you prefer.
As always when working with potentially hazardous materials, follow proper safety precautions. This includes keeping the work area well ventilated and making sure that no sources of flame or sparks are in the area (and of course, smoking while doing this work is absolutely out of the question).
Reasons to remove a tree
If you have a construction project in mind there is a chance that maybe a tree is blocking your plans. If there is a tree of any size in your way when you are trying to carry out a renovation plan obviously it can cause issues. Removing a tree may seem like an easy task but it can be challenging and it can also be dangerous. It can be dangerous for your property and even yourself or others around you. We always recommend that you get a professional team to remove any sort of sizable tree as it is often not worth the risk.
There can be other reasons you may want to remove a tree, sometimes the health of the tree has declined to the point where it is impossible to save. If you do not need a tree removed for a logistical reason I would always recommend you use a tree arborist to see if the tree can be saved. They are experts in the management of trees and will know the best course of action. They can trim trees and do all of the things you require.
Hire a professional
If the tree definitely needs removal then you should call a professional tree removing service. You will also have to get in contact with your local council and the tree removal service will be able to organise this for you. An arborist will also be the best for this job because they can make sure that all the debris is cleaned up and they will also remove the stump for you.
Please do not ever attempt to remove a big tree from your yard yourself you should always contact a professional. The safety risks are just too huge. Imagine if when you were trying to remove the tree you caused injury to a loved one or neighbour, or it fell onto someone’s house! A professional tree removal team will have access to all the equipment needed and all the safety gear required.
You definitely do not want something like this happening:
Concrete as a whole is a very durable and reliable surface when the subject of maintaining concrete arises you wouldn’t be the only person out there to consider what the point of maintaining it is. As a whole, it is a very long lasting product without maintenance. This is why it is so widely used for driveways, patios and other surfaces around the house. Keeping on top of the maintenance of your concrete can really help maintain the beauty of your concrete: plain concrete can maintain a clean and bright look, instead of being oil stained and grimy and decorative concrete can maintain its looks for years and still provide the visual pleasures it was designed to do. If you correctly maintain your concrete it can protect the investment that you have made in concrete, especially if you have poured decorative concrete somewhere around your house.
The simplest form of maintaining your concrete is to keep it clean, generally, a pressure washer of some sort is the best option for this. Having your concrete sealed is also a great thing and I will talk about that in the next paragraph. Concrete cleaning can be fairly pricey to do properly as the cost of the equipment required to do the best job is fairly high. If you are wanting to do the clean yourself you will need to make sure you have the right equipment. We would recommend that you clean it on at least a once a year basis, doing this will ensure you remove normal dirt and grime build up as well as any other stains that may develop. A suitable pressure washer will do the trick, ensure that you take your time and really thoroughly clean the entirety of the concrete. It is best if you dedicate a good amount of time and block it out in sections to do the
cleaning. Generally what I do is I hire a company that clean all the concrete in my backyard and also do my driveway at the same time. The cost ends up being very much worth it.
You will want to make sure you seal your concrete after the washing is done, this will include repairing any cracks that have formed in your concrete. If you seal everything well the sealant will act as a means of repelling water, dust proofing the surface, providing resistance to abrasion and it also can make the concrete resistant to UV sunlight. The sealant can be applied in a thin coat with a roller or a sprayer. Once the first coat has dried you should apply a second coat and once that is dried you are all set.
Concrete maintenance is important and pretty simple to do.
In any workplace the most important thing should always be the workers, yes you want to make a profit, yes you want to have good productivity and there is a lot of other things you want to go right for your company. None of this is possible if your workers are injured, however, someone that has injured themselves at work is the worst part about owning a business. No one should ever get hurt at work, everything should be done to minimise the risk of this ever happening. Our worker’s safety is the first thing on our mind, always.
This article isn’t going to be a long one, we aren’t here to outline all of our safety practices, I am just writing this and it may seem like an obvious thing for people to say. Safety is our number one priority. We would never want one of our workers to get injured or god forbid something worse to happen to them at work. Families shouldn’t have to worry about their loved ones being unsafe at work.
We have a very well laid out safety plan and we have detailed information about all the chemicals we use. Everything is stored in appropriate cabinets, safety equipment is used when required and we review our safety policies constantly. We always listen to our workers and any concerns that they may have. Our motto is: mission first, safety always. We love our workers and would do anything to make sure our workplace is one of the safest in the country.
