Affordable Home Improvement Tips
Tip 1: Plan your project and get bids well in advance
Have you ever tried to find a contractor in March to start your new three-season porch that you want completed by Mother’s Day? It’ll cost more than if you’d found a contractor in January. Most contractors plan out months ahead and don’t want to disrupt their schedules. They’ll shoot you a high bid, because they really don’t want to fit you in … unless you pay a high rate.
Most building trades have busy seasons and slow seasons. Plan ahead, and you’ll get more competitive bids during the slow seasons. Best times to schedule:
- roofing—cold or rainy months
- indoor renovations—winter or during rainy months
- heating—late summer, before fall
- air conditioning—late winter or early spring
- chimney cleaning— anytime except fall!
- project design (architects)—fall and winter
Tip 2: Pay extra for energy-saving features
With energy prices rising, many contractors are offering energy efficiency upgrades (at an additional price). These might include higher-efficiency windows; guaranteed air sealing; extra-thick insulation; and higher-efficiency heating, cooling or other appliances. If they don’t offer this, you can ask what additional measures they (or you) can take to improve your home’s energy performance. Then compare the estimated energy savings with the cost of each upgrade. A payback period of seven to 10 years is good. (Simple payback is the time it takes for the savings to equal the original cost.) Keep in mind that upgrades done during the remodeling process always cost less than upgrades added later.
Tip 3: Hire an architect or designer for at least an initial sketch
The most expensive mistake you can make is to build an addition or remodel a room that you don’t like when it’s finished. Professional design help during the planning stage helps you tailor the space to fit. Sometimes it takes only one or two key details to make that room special. Most architects and designers will walk you through the initial planning for a modest fee. Gather lots of visual material to illustrate your ideas. And be sure you’re on the same page as your spouse! Be prepared to do some legwork after going through these home improvement tips.
Tip 4: Pitch in and do parts of the project yourself
Doing the entire project yourself is by far the best way to save. But if you don’t have the time or skills, your part-time sweat equity can reduce costs. Consider taking on such labor-intensive jobs as demolition, moving materials, digging, cleaning up the job site after work, sanding trim or painting. Coordinate the jobs with the contractor in advance and agree on their value. Beware! Once you commit yourself, make sure to complete the work in a timely way. Tardiness can throw off the construction schedule and cost you more in the long run!
Tip 5: Plan for future upgrades if you can’t afford them now
You don’t have to wait until you can build your dream addition all at once. You can get started now and gradually add as your finances allow. But work from a master plan so you don’t have to go back and tear out or upgrade what you’ve already done.
For example, consider:
- an electrical service with capacity for the future addition, workshop or hot tub
- in-the-wall wiring for electronics in every room or a future home theater
- rough plumbing for a future half bath or hot tub
- wiring for future lighting fixtures
- rough framing for future doors or windows
- French doors that open to a future deck.
Tip 6: Compare the price of remodeling with the cost of buying new
Your house is your most important investment as well as the place you call home. Although you may love your house and neighborhood, check how much your addition would add to the value of your home. Creating a luxury home in a modest neighborhood may not make financial sense. A real estate agent or home appraiser can make a close estimate. If you can’t recoup at least 75 percent of the cost when you sell, at least consider the advantages of buying another house with the space or features you need. It may well be a better investment to move rather than to add on.
Tip 7: Shop for materials yourself
You won’t save much by trying to stockpile lumber, drywall, electrical wiring or other basic building materials. But when it comes to the finish materials—carpeting, appliances, faucets, countertops, light fixtures—your own footwork will pay off. Not only do you get exactly what you want, but you also can find bargains, especially if you start collecting these items well in advance. You can even plan to reuse a stylish old stove, distressed hardwood flooring or other items that add a creative touch to a room. But clear your decisions with your contractor; installation costs might be higher for unusual requests.
Tip 8: Don’t overdo windows and skylights
Big windows and skylights can have a spectacular effect in a new addition, making it feel bright and cheery and offering great views. But more is not always better. Not only are windows and skylights expensive, but even energy-efficient ones will sharply increase your heating and cooling bills. Large skylights can make a room feel like a furnace in the summer! You may have to replace your air conditioner, heat pump or furnace with a larger one. Or perhaps add units to keep the room comfortable.
Tip 9: Avoid moving the plumbing or changing the foundation
You can’t always avoid it, but any alteration to these two systems typically adds thousands to a remodeling project. Neither is simple. New plumbing often requires breaking into walls and floors; resizing lines to meet newer plumbing codes; and replacing old, out-of-date pipes. New foundations usually require excavation, concrete and other heavy, expensive work. The price jumps whenever you add these two items, so ask yourself if you really need to move the kitchen sink during a kitchen remodel, or if you really need the extra space in a bathroom
Tip 10: Order over the internet
Can’t find a nice-looking low-voltage light fixture at a nearby home center? The Internet puts a wide selection of products at your fingertips. Even better, it gives you access to hard-to-find specialty items at competitive prices. Often you can save 40 to 50 percent over the list price.
How Much Does a Handyman Charge Per Hour?
A handyman who works independently usually charges around $60 to $65 an hour on average. Depending on where you live the actual price range can run from $55 to $75 for an independent operator. A handyman who is part of a larger business can charge up to $125 an hour or more.
Expect to pay between $165 and $615 per project when hiring a handyman near you to complete repair and installation work. They may calculate the total using an hourly rate or by charging a flat fee for labor and materials. When paying by the hour, materials are extra.
Handyman Flat Rate Pricing
The flat rate fee for handyman services is between $65 and $1,200, depending on the size of the job. Flat rate quotes typically include materials. The price may go up if they find any hidden issues, such as mold behind the drywall.
A handyman should be able to give you a firm quote in writing before starting any project. You just need to provide sufficient details about the job, including what materials you prefer. The quote should clearly spell out the scope of the project, define the final product and estimate how long it might take. They can then use those factors to choose hourly or flat rate pricing and find the total cost.
Projects can grow and change as they progress, resulting in additional costs. Unforeseen complications can also cause the price to increase. In either situation, they should provide another quote that explains the reason for the higher price.
Handyman Cost Factors
When hiring a handyman, there is more to consider than the job itself. Other factors to think about include the size of the job, their experience level, licenses they carry and the distance they need to travel.
How big is the job? Whether it’s the physical size of the job or the level of complexity, this is one of the biggest factors that could influence the final cost. Simple repairs, like replacing a toilet valve, are often much cheaper than full installation services, such as putting up a new awning. If you are unsure about the scope of your project, make sure to ask while collecting bids.
An experienced handyman often works quicker than their inexperienced colleagues because they know what’s involved in the project. Their experience allows them to watch for common pitfalls and avoid many mistakes along the way. However, this doesn’t mean that you pay less per hour. In fact, you might see a higher hourly rate.
The licensing requirements for handymen are quite varied and depend primarily on where you live. Some states may not require any licensing while others insist that handymen carry the same licenses, bonds and insurance as a contractor. A licensed expert often charges more than an unlicensed one to cover their increased expenses.
Many handymen advertise that they don’t charge for travel, but if you live in a rural or isolated area, you can expect to cover this expense. Some of these professionals simply include any travel in their hourly rate while others may offer free travel within a certain area, such as the first 10 miles. If they charge for mileage, the standard practice is to charge according to the distance from their place of business. Be sure to ask about this up front.
DIY vs. Hire a Handyman
As an adept DIYer, you likely have a lot of the same skills as your typical handyman. As projects come up, you have to decide if you can handle the job or if you need to hire someone with a bit more experience. The best way to decide if a project is better as a DIY project is to ask yourself what can go wrong and how badly.
Updating your kitchen cabinets with new handles is a project with very few complications. The worst that could happen is that you might not have screwed them in tight enough and they come loose. Replacing an electrical outlet, however, can be very dangerous if you do it wrong. If you don’t know about electrical currents and how they work in your house, call someone who does.

How can I keep handyman costs down?
When hiring a handyman, remember these tips to help keep your costs down:
- Clear out furniture and other obstacles to make the job easier and take less time
- Combine multiple small jobs if you can and ask for a discount for bundling the tasks
- Shop around for at least three quotes, then try to haggle for a lower rate when possible
- Give the new guy a chance when the project does not demand tons of experience
- Ask about discounts for seniors, veterans and disabled individuals
Should I pay a handyman a flat rate or hourly?
A handyman usually has the flexibility to charge for services either way: hourly or flat-rate. You might be able to negotiate with him or her as to which way to charge.
Before you ask, look at how the two differ. Suppose a job takes three hours to complete from start to finish. At $90 per hour, you spend just $270. But, suppose they price the same job at a flat rate of $300. While that increases your hourly charge to $100 an hour, it can save you money overall if the job takes longer than expected. Use your knowledge of the job and its potential pitfalls to weigh each option before deciding which one works best for you.
How Much Insulation Should I Use in My Attic?
Proper insulation is an important factor when it comes to managing the climate of your home in an efficient manner. Experts recommend, for most regions, that you insulate with about 12 to 15 inches (R-38). R-Value refers to the insulation’s ability to defend against heat flow – the higher the R-Value, the more effective the insulation. If you live in more extreme climates, you can insulate with an R-Value that suits your liking.
How Frequently Should a Roof Be Replaced?
Your roof is the final barrier between you and the sky’s droppings so you’ll want to make sure it is structurally sound and impermeable to the elements. Of course, there are many types of roofs with varying life spans so pick your poison:
- Rock Roofs: 12-15 years
- Composition Shingles: 12-20 years
- Shake/Wood Shingles: 20-25 years
- Metal Roofs: 50-75 years
- Clay Roofs: 50-100 years
What Should I look for When Replacing My Furnace?
The household furnace is a staple of comfort but also a cornerstone of your monthly bill. If you’re looking to upgrade in the near future, there are a few things to consider to make the transition safe and efficient.
- Get a furnace with a smart motor; this will help with overall efficiency.
- Pay attention to the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE); make sure it’s at least 90% or higher.
- Make sure you’re buying the right size furnace for your home. Newer furnaces are more powerful and more efficient so don’t simply buy the same size as your old furnace; evaluate your needs and ask the experts.
- Your furnace is only as good as its surroundings. A brand new furnace can’t do its job if the rest of your home is inefficient; therefore, make sure your home is sealed so that any heat produced will stay indoors.
What is the Best Way to Remove Old Wall Paper?
Getting rid of dated wallpaper is a cheap and easy way to refresh your home; however, you may find that breaking that stubborn bond can be an arduous task. If you’re having trouble, try these methods:
- If your budget isn’t an issue, buy a steam wallpaper stripper that projects a concentrated stream of steam through a specialized nozzle. It’s a machine made for the job and will save you some grunt-work.
- If you’re on a DIY budget, fill a spray bottle with ½ fabric softener and ½ hot water and saturate the paper. Let it sit for a couple minutes and peel away with a putty knife.
What is the Proper Placement for the Toilet Paper Holder?
When performing somewhat mundane upgrades in your home, it’s important to act by certain industry standards so that your home maintains a certain universal comfort. A common question in DIY forums is regarding the height of the toilet paper holder and hand towel rings by your sink. The toilet paper holder should be installed 20-24 inches from the ground and the towel ring 24 inches so that the ring hangs at about 18 inches from the counter’s surface.
Where are the biggest air leaks in my home?
By sealing any air leaks in your home, you’ll increase your efficiency and lower your monthly bills as a result. Most of the major air leaks are easy to feel and can be found around windows, doors, electrical outlets, etc. Though these are the obvious and significant culprits, they aren’t the only ones. Check for more obscure leaks in your attic, your basement and around your chimney.
Can My Home Be Too Airtight?
Many energy efficiency experts lecture openly about tightening your homes “Thermal Envelope.” Any area where air can escape is troublesome to your home’s heating/cooling efforts and can unnecessarily inflate your utility bill. While it is difficult to achieve a home that is too airtight, it is still possible. In the end, it is important to maintain a certain amount of fresh air in your home to keep your indoor air quality at a comfortable, livable level.
How Can You Add Color to Concrete?
There are multiple ways to color and treat the concrete around your home that will give it an all new look and presence. Muriatic acid is one option but experts find it to be a bit messy, erosive and detrimental to the concrete’s long-term weatherability. In the end, they suggest painting the surface of your concrete with a stain or paint that’s approved by your local Home Depot or Lowe’s. There are even some products that both stain and stabilize concrete surfaces in about a dozen different shades that will help you color and waterproof all in one step.
How Do You Square Frame Walls?
If you’re adding walls to your home, it’s vital that they are square and plum. You can make all the proper measurements but it’s still important to know the basic insights of structural integrity. An easy way to guarantee that your framing walls are truly square is by laying them flat and measuring diagonally from corner to corner in both positions. When both diagonal measurements are exactly equal, your frame is technically square. Hint: run a piece of lumber the length of the diagonal and tack it in place to avoid any shifting.
When Should I Bring in an Expert and Whom Should I Call?
When you’re looking to make some home improvements, your best bet is to always consult with an expert. For the bigger, more complicated projects, a certified technician will make sure things are done right the first time and typically be able to guarantee their services. If you attempt to repair things on your own, you risk user error, property damage and most importantly, your personal safety.
A “consultant” will come into your home and make an educated evaluation of your systems or energy efficiency through a series of tests. Once they’ve crunched the numbers they can offer expert advice and point you in the right direction; however, they will not be able to perform the work themselves. On the other hand, a contractor will be able to do most of the evaluations that the consultant can but they will then be able to perform the work with an expert’s touch.
