Want to Improve Your Home this Summer? Check Out These 6 Projects
We know that summers are for vacations and time hanging out with family and friends. However, did you know that there are some home improvement projects that are best completed during the summer months? Some of these projects will take no time at all, while others may have you tackling them while you are far away on your dream vacation.
Here are 6 projects that can help you improve your home this summer:
- Clean Up with a Quick Pressure Wash
Cleaning the exterior of your home is as easy as pressure washing all the dirt, mildew, mold, and algae away. You can do this yourself or you can hire a professional to do it for you. Most people will make their decision based on how much experience they have with pressure washing and whether or not they own the equipment that is needed.
- Improve Your Landscaping
Improving your landscaping can instantly increase the value of your home, while adding incredible curb appeal. You can choose to add a few more flowers or you can go all out with a gorgeous courtyard. Depending on what you decide to do, you may want to hire a professional to design and construct your new yard.
- Install a Programmable Thermostat
The newer programmable thermostat will have you adjusting the temperature inside your home with a push of a button on your smartphone. These thermostats will allow you to save money on your energy bills while keeping your house comfortable at the same time.
- Install New Windows
If you have been thinking of replacing your old drafty windows for a while now, and even if you haven’t, summer is the perfect time to replace them. This is a pretty quick home improvement project and your house will look amazing after just a day or two. The good news is that while you may need to deal with a little outside heat, as the windows are being removed and installed, it is better than feeling the colder days of winter.
- Construct a Deck
Summer is all about spending time outside, which is why you need to construct a deck if you do not have one already. A deck will increase the value of your home, while also giving you a place to hang out with family and friends on those long lazy summer days. This deck can be as small or as large as you want, and you can choose to have it constructed as a basic deck or you can choose to include all the bells and whistles that can include an outdoor kitchen.
- Renovate Your Kitchen
There is never a good time for a kitchen renovation, but the summer months seem to be the best option. The reason for this is that you can easily cook outside on a grill during these months and you can even spend most of your time outside instead of in your kitchen. That means that you really will not miss your kitchen as it is being renovated at this time of the year.
These are six of the best home improvement projects that you can tackle during the summer months, but we are sure that you will find others that you can do during this time as well. We encourage you to look around your home to see what needs to be done and then prioritize that list with what you can easily fit into your summer days.
