Do you have a few hours this weekend to complete three quick home projects that will make a difference in the look of your home? Take the time to address unsightly cracks and holes in three key areas of your home. These projects are quick and easy but can noticeably upgrade your home.
Address the Cracks & Holes: Driveway
For some, the driveway is often one of the most forgotten parts of your home. Whether you're looking to resale or just upgrade your property, your driveway can help make an overall good or bad impression. Your driveway was built to last you decades, but using products like Red Devil's Pre-Mixed Concrete Patch can help to extend your concrete driveway’s life and increase your home’s curb appeal.
When cracks appear in your driveway it's best to take care of them as soon as possible to prevent more damage from being done to your driveway. Cracks in asphalt can be sealed with fillers like Red Devil's Asphalt Sealer or PU-970.

Red Devil's Pre-Mixed Concrete Patch is a ready-to-use concrete patch for the repair of holes, cracks, breaks and other imperfections in concrete or masonry surfaces.
Address the Cracks & Holes: Drywall
We all know that whether it’s caused by pin holes, nails, furniture, doors or accidents, our walls can take a beating. Repairs to your drywall can be quick and easy using a product like Red Devil’s ONETIME® Lightweight Spackling.

ONETIME® Lightweight Spackling
This product has been a favorite of both Pros and DIYers because of its ease of use and quality. Onetime® Lightweight Spackling is not only lightweight like the name suggests, but the pre-mixed formula also has a creamy consistency that makes the product easy and quick to use. This product can make it look like there were never any dents, cracks or holes in your interior and exterior surfaces such as drywall, plaster, wood and stucco. After one application, our Onetime® Lightweight Spackling is ready to paint in minutes, because it dries so quickly and sanding is not necessary. You also won’t have to worry about it slumping, shrinking, flaking or cracking.
Address the Cracks & Holes: Windows & Doors
Filling the cracks & holes around your windows and doors will not only help your home to look better, but it may also help it feel better too. Using a sealant like LIFETIME® Ultra 230 Premium Acrylic Sealant helps to prevent air leaks or drafts, which are the equivalent of money flying out of your door. To locate these energy drains, check these common areas and others like baseboards and flooring edges for cracks & holes. When you find any leaks or draft, easily seal them up with LIFETIME® Ultra 230.
