Henry DeVore. the plastics expert who made the prediction, said also that continued progress with the man - made building material will result in many dra* malic new techniques in home construction. In town for the ninth national plastics exposition, DeVore, of Allied Chemical Corp,, cited an experimental building constructec by Army engineers at Ft. Belvoir, Va., as one example of advancements in plastics. The building, about the size of a two'Car garage, was constructed of plastic panels, molded and shaped from foam sprayed from a 55-gallon barrel. DeVore l i s t e d other plastic 3uilding materials already receiving attention -- polyethylene cold water piping, plastic sewage pipes, and translucent plastic panels for industrial skylights, windows, room dividers, shower stalls and car ports, RUST-PROOF SCREENS To prevent iron-wire screens from rusting this summer, apply a thin coat of varnish or screen enamel before putting them up. klc lo your home is the outside -- or prospective buyers may count two strikes against you be- 'ore they oven enter. Loose or damaged siding should be re- ihired and, in masonry homes, iolnls where'morlar has fallen out should be, repaired, If the house needs painting, the dost of the laint will hardly compare with .he extra amount you can gain when you sell. "Smooth Lmvn" Look Shrubbery should be trimmed and grass should be mowed as often as necessary lo maintain a 'smooth lawn" look. Fences and jorch railings should be painted if necessary. If.'jide, the walls, ceilings and floors will catch the attention of ^respective home buyers and :hese should be repaired and beautified. C r a c k s i n plaster should be filled in and a coat ol paint or wall covering material often will do wonders for ithe entire room and could clinch the sale/ A look of luxury-can be addec at nominal cost by installing resilient floor tile such as the new Crystalile Pastels by Keiitlle in inexpensive 1-16-inch thick vinyl. This can be done by the home owner and the casy-to-maintain feature of the tile will be a gooc selling point. Next the windows and doors Old-style doors can be easily re placed with new flush doors nominal cost and windows shouk be repaired if necessary to as sure ease in opening and closing Loose panes should be puttied be fore sashes are repainted. Spruce Up Basement A little work in the basement can add a good deal to the value of your home. A coat of water pfof paint on t h e masonrj walls and the cement floor wil make the area colorful and cheery and turn it into extra living space. Curtains on the windows and £ few items of furniture will pul life into the area. Then check electrical outlets and switches to be sure they work. A faulty switch you sel dom use could be the first one the prospective buyer will try oul and it could cost you the sale Plumbing fixtures also should be In good order. Leaky faucets should be repaired and all pipes should be checked for leaks. Building? Or Paving? Let us POUR for you We deliver, when you want it ... to your forms!
