This is not a "How-To" Web site. The purpose of this site is to show the public how some people do home improvements. They might be wrong. In any event, no two houses are alike, so our methods may NOT work for you. If you chose to follow the techniques, approaches and methods shown on our site, then you follow them at your own risk.


Home improvements, repairs, remodeling and construction are inherently risky, even dangerous.


We strive to highlight and expose the risks for our readers, but we cannot anticipate all possibilities.

If you are not absolutely sure of your abilities, find someone who is, such as a licensed or certified professional.

If you seek the lowest risk method of improving your home, we recommend that you hire a contractor. In many states and provinces contractors are required to be licensed and insured.

Some General Safety Guidelines for Home Improvement Projects:

(This is by no means a complete list.)

  • Always follow the recommended safe working guidelines and instructions of any tool  you are using.
  • If a product includes instructions, follow the manufacturer's safety recommendations.
  • Wear safety glasses when operating any power tool.
  • Wear safety glasses when striking any object with a hammer or other striking tool.
  • Do not wear loose clothing around moving machinery or power tools.
  • Make sure all ladders and scaffolding are placed securely and on a firm, stable surface.
  • Work at a calm and reasonable pace. Many accidents are the result of taking short-cuts or attempting to work too fast.
  • Do not attempt to repair electrical equipment unless you are certain of your abilities. Always disconnect power when making electrical repairs. Always verify that power is off by checking with a voltage tester, but first, verify that the voltage tester is working properly.
  • We recommend wearing hearing protection when using most loud power tools. If you hear ringing in your ears after using a loud tool or machine, that is a sign that the noise is loud enough to eventually cause hearing loss. Take this seriously, many people who often use power tools eventually experience hearing loss, including the author of this website.
