Enjoying every inch of your home means taking care of the outside just as well as you take care of the inside.
Doing that requires a special recipe for preventing pests from taking up residence in your yard and making some exterior upgrades.
Along the way, you’ll probably have questions like the callers on this week’s Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.
Knowing how to keep woodpeckers away from your home will come in handy if you spend a lot of time outdoors and don’t want the extra noise.
Other common issues include removing carpet glue from outdoor stairs and screening in a porch. Then there are unexpected problems like pouring a slab that’s now oily to the touch and finding that your deck is peeling.
