ANCHOR LEAD: Gearing up to buy Dad another tie this Father's Day? Brian Osuch explains why you may want to cancel your trip to the mall. (:59)
SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. According to a new poll from HomeAdvisor, 33% of fathers would love the gift of home improvement this Father's Day. Mark and Theresa Clement, hosts of the DIY show MyFixitUpLife, share the projects that dads dread the most.
CUT: (Mark) There are probably as many tasks as there are dads and houses, but three kind of rise to the top: painting an interior room; cleaning windows; and this is a project that can actually go wrong pretty easily - is pressure washing.
SCRIPT: Whether you decide to tackle these projects yourself, or look for professional help, Theresa highlights the importance of finding reliable sources of information.
CUT: (Theresa) A really good resource online is HomeAdvisor.com. They have a cost guide there for more than eight hundred and fifty home improvement projects. So, it gives you a really good idea of how much you want to budget for that project or if you are giving the gift of home improvement too.
