The desire to protect one’s home against wear and make it more attractive and livable, is deeply rooted in the heart of most home owners. Too often, however, the small investment in time and money necessary to make desire blossom into accomplishment is put off from day to day, month to month, year to year. All through this period of procrastination, insidious decay is at work, destroying values which today are hard or impossible to replace. Soon the shabby mantle of neglect spreads its folds over all, and a major renovating job becomes necessary to restore its charm and utility.
