5 Home Improvement Projects You Can DIY On a Budget

At Rightway Waterproofing, our basement waterproofing contractors in Camden County know firsthand that home improvement projects can really pay off when you decide to sell your home. But home improvement doesn’t need to mean spending thousands of dollars! If you want to work on your home without breaking the bank, consider one of these home improvement projects you can do for less than $150.

  • Paint your cabinets. Want to instantly freshen up and modernize your kitchen? Take a weekend to give your cabinets a fresh coat of paint!
  • Stop clutter at the door. Does your doorway always feel cluttered and messy? Prevent clutter by hanging up a few coat hooks on the wall near your door.
  • Invest in some great lighting. Never underestimate just how dramatic an effect the right lighting can have in your space. Visit your local furniture store and look for a few new lighting pieces that complement the layout of your home. If you’re working on an even smaller budget, consider swapping out old light bulbs for a new set of LED bulbs, which are better for ambiance.
  • Defeat closet clutter once and for all. A cluttered closet can be stressful — but straightening up doesn’t need to mean totally renovating your bedroom. First, take stock of your closet by measuring your doorway and totally cleaning out your current clothing collection. Consider installing a few shelves or shoe racks to give yourself more space to store your stuff.
  • Install a sink filter. Installing a sink filter is a simple and affordable way to give yourself access to delicious, crisp water without cluttering your countertop. Even better, most sink filters can be installed in as little as a few hours with no professional assistance.

John and Barbara Vicich

“We wanted to thank you for your personal and specialized attention to the water problem we had in our basement. You took the time to inspect the whole situation and gave us recommendations, all of which worked. You had a way of explaining the process and materials that would be used in a way that we understood. We are very pleased with the work that was done and would highly recommend your company to anyone.”

Debbie, Berwyn

“The day after Hurricane Irene, all of my neighbors basements were filled with water, while mine remained dry! It is wonderful, everything remains dry and the battery backup worked beautifully when my power was out for 2 days. Dry AND quiet, thank you, thank you! Thanks! Debbie, Berwyn”

-Debbie, Berwyn

Doug Smith, Glenside

“All I have to say is that Hurricane Irene was no match for the job that Rightway did for my basement and my father-in-law’s. I had my basement done 5 years ago and we are still bone dry and my father-inlaw’s was done last year and another dry basement… Great job! I highly recommend them for waterproofing and mold remediation.”

-Doug Smith, Glenside


“I’d highly recommend these guys for your basement. My basement has been dry since they installed a sump pump and French drain in June. They offer a competitive price, they get the job done quickly and they stand by their work. Please mention my name if you proceed down the road with these guys.”


Angelo and Sandra Patiri

“We had our basement waterproofed with Rightway Waterproofing in 2007, after all this time and just getting through Hurricane Irene, we did not get a drop of water in our basement. Rightway Waterproofing did a very good job and we are very satisfied!”
