DIY Home Projects to do Before Summer Ends

DIY home projectHomeowners often run out of free time once summer ends, so now may be a good time to complete a number of do-it-yourself projects.

Install Ceiling Fans
One great summer DIY project that many homeowners might not realize can help them all year long is installing ceiling fans, and specifically those that rotate both clockwise and counterclockwise. While some fans can cost a bit of money – potentially hundreds of dollars depending upon brand and how many are being purchased – installing them now, while the weather is still hot, can significantly reduce cooling costs.

Because hot air rises, a ceiling fan that runs clockwise will pull cooler air up from the floor and redistribute it from the top of the room. This can have the effect of cooling a room by as much as 10 degrees in the summer, without the use of an air conditioner. Likewise, a ceiling fan running counterclockwise in the winter will push more of the hot air coming out of heating vents and radiators back toward the floor.

Projects for Your Home’s Exterior
Great summer weather for most folks won’t last much longer; therefore it’s always a great idea to ensure a home is completely prepared for the fall and winter months. Pressure washing pathways, decks and siding is a great way to beautify a home in just a few hours, without the need to repaint or repave. Renting a pressure washer for the day will usually cost less than $100 from a local hardware store.

Taking the time to clean out gutters and repair them before leaves start to fall and potentially compound clogs or lead to other drainage issues. Getting this done ahead of the winter months – when melting snow and ice can create major problems if left unaddressed – is vital.

The Right Approach
Now might also be the time to make sure you have the proper guidance/guidelines to actually do the DIY jobs you have set out to do. For example, using a power washer is a great way to keep a home looking beautiful, but if operated incorrectly, this tool can be dangerous both to the user and the property. Taking all due caution, studying how to use tools properly, and having the right safety equipment on hand is important

Likewise, when cleaning out gutters, having another person there to hold the ladder is a minimum safety measure that should be taken.

There are some home improvement jobs that should not be undertaken by inexperienced homeowners under just about any circumstances. A little research can go a long way toward determining what’s a reasonable project to DIY and what’s better left to the pros.

Cincinnati Citirama 2019 is September 7–15, 2019 at Springrose Meadows in Springdale

 

Springrose CitiramaSpringrose Meadows is the site of the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati’s Citirama 2019. The home show is scheduled from September 7–15, 2019. This subdivision is located near Kemper Road and Rose Lane in Springdale.

The home show is featuring five new homes with varying architecture priced from $300,000. There will also be a “demonstration” home where visitors can learn about new construction materials and products.

Springrose Meadows has availability for 50 single-family homes. All homes are eligible for a tax abatement: Per HBA: “Instead of paying standard property taxes on your structure you will just pay a yearly fixed assessment of $4,950 per year, and will not be effective until 2021. Homeowners are still required to pay the typical property tax on the value of their lot. The abatement will begin once the homeowner completes and submits the appropriate application with the City of Springdale tax department. The abatement is automatic and granted upon application. Homeowners will benefit by having their property taxes fixed on their home structure for 15 years, even when their structure appreciates in value the tax on the structure will not change. After 15 years the bond assessment will end and homeowners will begin paying standard real estate taxes on both the lot and the home. Springrose Meadows will also have a Homeowners Association (HOA) with a yearly fee of $300. The HOA is responsible for all the Springrose common areas.”

All homes in the Woodlawn Meadows, will be part of a “Special Assessment District.”  This district will have a 15-year tax abatement on all improvements.  The “Special Assessment” is estimated to be 50% of the regular taxes on a $200,000 improvement (per home).  Payments will be due after the bonds are placed (Sold).  This is only an estimate and is subject to change or evaluation. Find out how you can take advantage of this great way to buy a new home by contacting one of this year’s CiTiRAMA® builders  at http://www.cincybuilders.com/citiramareg.html.  The program is available on all 43 lots in the community.

Tickets for the home show will be $12.00 Advance tickets will be available from Krogers for $10 or online with the Home Builders Association.

Home Show Hours:
Monday – Thursday: 4pm–9pm
Friday–Sunday: 12pm–9pm
