Winter is over, and spring has begun its reign, making it an excellent time to have those home renovations you have been thinking about for the past several months. In this read, we are going to discuss some home improvement projects ideas that you should not pass on this season.
Winter is known to take a toll on roofs, and yours may have suffered damage like moisture seeping in through the creases and cracks. Peeling, curling, and disintegration of shingles can happen if your roof hasn’t been inspected for a while. This is the time to do this and handle any damage caused by the elements.
Build a Deck
A deck is an ideal feature to have is gives you a place to relax and socialize over a meal or drinks. Decks come in all shapes and sizes and can be built in a relatively short time as long as you use a professional. If you already have a deck and it sustained damage during winter, now is the time to update it.
Update the Rain Gutters
Without these, your home is pretty much defenseless against rainstorms. Rainwater will splash dirt on your siding, erode the soil around the foundation and even seep into the basement leading to internal damage. Gutters reduce maintenance to a minimum, especially if you install the modern ones and protect your home. Spring is an excellent time for these updates.
Update the Siding
You spent the entire winter inside staying warm, while the home’s exterior endured the harsh weather and temperatures. Spring provides an excellent time to have the siding inspected and even updated with appealing, high-performance, and energy-efficient options.
Have the AC Inspected
Summer will follow spring, and you are going to be in dire need of that AC unit. As such, it is wise to have the system inspected before the hot weather gets going. Your AC unit not only keeps the house cool during hot days but also removes moisture, thus preventing mold from growing. When updating your AC, ask for a UV light installation inside the unit to prevent mold growth.
These can substantially increase the amount of light in your house, thus creating an open sunny feeling in the living room. This is the time to have one installed and if you already have one, have it inspected for leaks and repaired if necessary.
If you have a lot of wood on your home’s exterior, now is the time to give it a new look with a fresh coat of paint. Yes, this might be a big job at a substantial expense, but the payoff will certainly be worth it. The coat not only protects the wood but if you are looking to sell your home, it can increase its value in addition to making potential buyers more interested.
Of course, this isn’t a comprehensive list of springtime renovations or home improvements, but it covers some important aspects that should not be left unattended this season. This will go along way as the average homebuyers are not typically looking to buy a fixer upper home. So doing these home improvements will increase the value of your home overtime and allow you to sell for top dollar when you’re ready.
