Things tend to slow down just a little in the summer. The kids are out of school, extracurricular activity demands are fewer and the summer heat inspires us all to take our much-deserved vacation time. And as things slow, you might start to notice all the home improvement projects you’ve been neglecting throughout the year. Well, there’s no time like the present to get things done! Here are our suggestions for the best home improvement projects to tackle this summer.
Summer home improvement projects
Replace the windows
Did you spend the winter fighting old, drafty windows? Your heat bill was probably astronomical and you probably spent your time bundled up, freezing. Now, as summer approaches, would be a great time to call in some professionals to help you set your home up for comfort for the upcoming winter.
Create an outdoor living space
As the days grow longer and the weather warms, you might be itching to spend more time outside. But your backyard might be less than inviting. We can help you transform your backyard into the outdoor living room of your dreams. Whether you want to add on beautiful decking or you want to makeover your entire backyard, now’s the time to get started. Performing a backyard renovation doesn’t just add more functional space to your home, it adds to the resale value of your property.
Switch out your front door
You might spend a lot of time manicuring your lawn, but your curb appeal is still lacking somehow. This might be a great indication that it’s time to swap out your entry door. This feature is often neglected but can have a truly powerful impact on your overall home aesthetic. Weathered, warped and cracked doors can easily age your home.
Replace your roof
Did you know that the average lifespan of a roof is 15-20 years? So if you’re battling a leak or missing some shingles, it might be time to replace your roof. The summer months are actually the best time for this type of project as the shingles need the heat to form a weathertight seal.
Install new countertops
You might think that installing new countertops is a project that’s suitable for any time of year. And while it certainly can be done anytime, it’s smart to book this type of project before the winter months. The professionals will need to remove the old countertop materials from your home and haul the new stuff in, and as we’re sure you can imagine, frigid temps and icy conditions are less than ideal for that type of in and out foot traffic.
