Homeowners should have their residence inspected professionally at least once a year, said De Anwar Bradley with Palafox Construction Group.

Regular maintenance should also be done regarding heating, A/C, roofing and pest control, he said.

When To Call A Professional

Even the smallest tasks can bring on large surprises, said Bradley.

If homeowners are unsure whether they are skilled enough to complete the job, they should consult a contractor. Sometimes, extra work is involved in fixing a mistake, he said.


Simple Home Projects

1. Build A Fire Pit

A popular summer project for many homeowners is a fire pit, Bradley said. Homeowners have a number of options when it comes to materials, including brick, rock and metal.

2. Paint an accent wall

An accent wall can add a splash of color to any home and provides homeowners an easy DIY option for a summer project. Variations of accent walls include solid colors, stripes and wood or stone.

3. Add hardware to kitchen cabinets and bathrooms

An easy remodeling option for many homeowners is the addition of hardware to kitchen and bathroom cabinets, according to Bradley. From brushed nickel to leather, hardware includes a wide variety of handles, knobs and pull bars.
