You don’t have to put off home improvement or renovation projects during the winter. You can do home renovations all through the year. Here is a guide on the various home renovation undertakings you can do during fall, winter, spring, and summer.
There are numerous home renovation projects to take on during the spring. Besides, many stores often have unbeatable deals during the spring. Why don’t you save your money as you embark on the following home renovation projects?
AC unit cools and improves air quality around your home. You need it during the summer to provide a cooler and more comfortable environment for your family. When the AC remains dormant for months, it gathers dirt and debris. Spring is the most ideal time to deep clean, repair, and maintain your AC unit. Think of replacing the filters and deep cleaning the condenser and fan to make your AC summer-ready. Make sure the coolant lines and the foam are intact. If the foam seems worn out or missing, you will have to replace the insulation. After the cleaning and repairs, test whether the AC is working. If it’s not in good condition, buy new HVAC supplies and install them with the help of a contractor.
Build yourself a deck to enjoy the summer
The weather condition in early spring makes it an ideal time to add a deck to your home, or refinish an existing deck. Early spring gives your deck time to cure without the unbearable sun exposure. Moreover, early spring is not humid. Therefore, the lumber on the deck will dry out evenly and quickly. What’s more, it is easier to stain your deck when the weather is not too humid.
Why not. Spring has optimum atmospheric conditions that make spring a good time to replace your floor. The lower humidity and cool temperature make it easier to install new floors. Besides, you get to enjoy the new floors once the hot weather approaches.
Regular cleaning and maintenance of your roof prolong its lifespan. Roof cleaning and repairs should be done during the summer. Your roof is dry and safer to walk on during the summer. Thus, it is easier to check for any damages and clean it.
After being in constant battle with spring storms, your gutters deserve some TLC. The storms may have jammed your gutters with dirt and debris obstructing your home’s drainage. Summer allows you to clean, repair, and prepare the gutters for fall.
Increase the curb appeal of your home by power washing it during the summer. Power wash your home exterior every 6 months. Power washing your exterior protects it against mildew, mold, and other allergens. To boot it up, it’s affordable and leaves your home looking fresh and beautiful.
As the cold weather approaches, fall is the best time to check on your HVAC equipment and schedule an appointment with an HVAC contractor. The AC unit has been working tirelessly for the past few months. Remember, the heating unit has been dormant since early spring. Therefore, you need to ensure the HVAC equipment is ready for the winter to avoid any cold nights during the winter.
Is the fireplace ready to warm your home during the cold season? If you rarely maintain your fireplace, fall is perfect to give attention to your fireplace. Hire a professional to check, clean, and repair the chimney.
Roll up your sleeves, grab a brush or rollers and breathe a new lease of life onto your walls. The cold weather drys the air making your home less humid. Consider putting eco-friendly paints on your walls to ensure all your loved ones are safe.
Update and maintain the carbon monoxide and smoke detectors. We rarely change the batteries on our detectors. Ensure you keep on changing batteries during this time to keep your family safe. Reseal any cracks or openings to prevent cold air from leaking into your home.
If you’ve been postponing a bedroom, bathroom, or kitchen remodeling, do it during the winter. Winter is the best time to do a full room remodeling. As you stay indoors, these remodeling projects will keep you active and moving as the cold nights and days pass by.
Spring or summer isn’t the only time you can do home renovation projects. You can improve your home all throughout the year.
