PAGE RE-2 REAL ESTATE - SEPTEMBER 2014 Given the sluggish econ- omy, now is not the time most of us want to spring for a cost- ly remodeling project. But you don't have to spend a lot of money to spruce up your home with paint. The nation's number one do-it-yourself project holds that title for a reason (two reasons, actually): Painting is easy and it's inexpensive, making it just right for budg- et-minded consumers. What's more, even small paint projects can greatly enhance the appearance of your home. Here are some quick ways to get a lot of mileage out of a little paint, according to Debbie Zimmer, spokesperson for the Paint Quality Institute: NEW LOOK ON A LOW BUDGET - Everyone likes to keep thier home looking good and in the slow economic times, there is no better way to give your home a great look on a low budget.

Ask any homeowner and he or she is bound to have a to-do list of little chores around the house that need to get done. These tasks are made much easier with the right tools. Depending on individual skill level, many homeown- ers already have basic tools on hand, such as hammers and screwdrivers. Others may have a more extensive collection of tools available for projects, such as saws, sanders and electric drills. For homeowners who don't have certain to ls, there may be no need to purchase new ones for specific proj- ects. Many tools can be rent- ed, such as floor sanders, car- pet cleaners, saws and oth- ers. Find out if items can be borrowed from friends or family members -- and whether they might want to help with certain tasks. BEFORE ANY project is started, homeowners should take inventory of what they have and what they will need to complete a project. Taking shortcuts can lead to frustra- tion and more money spent fixing mistakes. Make a list and have all of the gear avail- able and ready for use. Here are some common projects and the tools that will be needed. * Gutter cleaning: Cooler weather means leaves and debris will collect in gutters and downspouts. A sturdy ladder, gloves, garden hose, small shovel, and bucket will be needed to clear out the debris. Be sure the ladder is placed so that it is on level ground. * Cleaning siding: A rent- ed power washer can make quick work of cleaning grinw siding and hard-to-reach win- dows. * Landscape clean-up: Now may be the time to pull THE RIGHTTOOLS FOR THE RIGHT JOB- Homeowner,, will find that those little projects around the house car become really big projects without the proper tools.
