Duct Tape Dependent

Duct Tape Dependent

You evaluate home repairs not in dollars, but in rolls. You know that where there is a will — and a jumbo 18-pack of duct tape — there is a way. Your walls are a blank canvas upon which truly anything can be semi-permanently taped. We don’t even need to ask what your first wallet was made of.

Sure, duct tape is your go-to for small fixes. But instead of small-fixing your way through life, consider applying for a U.S. Bank Home Equity Line of Credit http://bit.ly/1iIenGT 
to help you make the big, permanent fixes you need. Have more questions? Visit our Home Equity Line of Credit FAQ page. http://bit.ly/1VWN2Pv

The Mallet Monger

Your home improvement projects usually end in a smashing success — emphasis on the “smashing.” The staff of your local hardware store have nicknamed you “Thor.” Any home project can be tackled with enough elbow grease, and any elbow can be used as an ad-hoc hammer.

You have ample enthusiasm and brawn — but sometimes it takes a team of professionals to get a permanent solution. A U.S. Bank Home Equity Line of Credit http://bit.ly/1VWN5L7 can help you knock down the financial barriers between you and the lasting renovations you want.

The Gadget Guru

Your home does not want for intelligence: you’ve got a smart fridge, USB power outlets and a cloud-synced to-do list on your tablet. You probably remotely track your dog’s calories. Your living room is a hotspot for family and friends. No, really — you installed Wi-Fi routers under the floorboards.

The Jack-of-No-Trades

The Jack-of-No-Trades

Sure, you could swing a hammer, but you'd prefer the local handyman swing by your house instead. And you don’t actually know if you own a hammer. Assembly manuals make you break out in a cold sweat. Your mini toolkit makes for a very effective doorstop.

Calling a contractor yourself counts as DIY, right?
