Home Depot’s tool rental division noticed a definite trend in yard rental equipment such as aerators, seeding and dethatching tools. Homeowners are also starting to tackle small excavating jobs and renting their own Bobcat’s instead of paying the hefty /hour fees. The company also noticed an increase in the purchase of high end tools such as snowthrowers (45% increase this winter), and large tillers and tractors.
When making home improvements, it is important to check all of your faucets for leaks. A leaky faucet can waste a lot of water. If you run into a leaky faucet, be sure to repair it as soon as possible. When you wash your clothes, try using cold water. You can consider installing low flow showerheads, which will cut down on the amount of water used.
It’s best to start in one area of your home if possible. This way your home improvement product Contractor can finish one part of the home at a time. Unless you are undertaking a larger renovation, finish what has been started and then have your contractor move on to the next project.
