Summer Home Improvement Projects

Summer Home Improvement Projects

Jul 01, 2016

As the weather gets warmer, more of us get inspired to start catching up on home improvement projects we ignored during the winter. This is the perfect time to get some of those weather-permitting projects complete. Here are some of the popular summer home renovations we recommend embarking on this summer.

1. Power Wash Your Exterior

Rent a power-washer to get all the dirt and grime off the exterior of your home. You might be surprised how dirty your home’s exterior was when you see the finished product!

2. Re-Stain the Deck and/or Fence

During the winter, your deck was probably covered in snow, rain, and dirt – making it difficult to get any cleaning done. Now that everything has melted away, take the summer to clean the deck and give it a fresh stain. You can also stain your fence, which could probably use freshening up and added layer of protection after a harsh winter.

3. Replace Windows

Another improvement project better done in the summer is window replacement. Switching to energy efficient windows can save you big on your energy bill and create a more updated look to your home. This is best done in the summer, when the temperature will be much more comfortable.

4. Landscaping Improvement

As the early summer hits, make sure you have a beautiful outdoor landscape to spend time in! Cut the grass, prune the trees, and maybe even plant some flowers. Incorporate outdoor furniture to create a summer oasis right in your backyard.
