Now that the warm weather is here to stay for the summer, it’s time to bring out your toolbox because summer means that it’s home improvement season! Completing your home improvement projects in the summer means that you won’t have to suffer through the cold weather elements to get the job done or risk slipping on ice or snow. Instead, although you won’t be relaxing, you’ll be able to enjoy your time outdoors more now that the weather’s nice. Today we review four of the best home improvement projects to get done during the summer months.
If your roof is missing shingles or is in bad condition, then summer is the best time for you to call in the experts to fix it. Although summer is busy season for roofing companies and prices may be a little higher, it is still the best season to have this project completed. During the cooler weather month’s, projects can take longer due to snow, ice and cold temperatures. The late summer and early fall months tend to be the busiest times of the year for roofing companies, so getting the job done in the early part of the summer is your best bet. However, it’s not advised to rush into a roofing project. Homeowners should take the necessary time to research and evaluate respectable roofing contractors in their area before going all in.
Whether you’re looking to repaint your home’s interior or exterior, summer is a great time to get the project done. If you’re looking to paint your home, there’s two routes you can take. You can either call in professional painters to take care of the job, or you can make it a DIY project. There is a big price difference in doing it yourself versus hiring a professional, what could be up to a 90 percent difference. However, it’s important to remember that DIY project takes a lot of time and energy, not to mention that you have to be careful not to get paint anywhere it shouldn’t be. If you’re not up for a complete paint job, then consider just painting your front door a bold color as a fun weekend project. Doing so can increase your home’s curb appeal and maybe even its value!
Although there really never is a wrong time to garden, summer is by far the best month to do so because you can enjoy the weather while you dig up some dirt. The majority of flowers and plants thrive in the summer months, so adding a pop of color to your home’s exterior with a bright summer garden can liven up your home and elevate its curb appeal. To choose the right flowers for your property and personality, visit your local home improvement or convenience store for a wide selection or view our post here discussing the best summer flowers to add to your garden. Don’t forget to prep the area you’re planting with moisture and dirt beforehand and water as needed once the flowers are planted.
Having sufficient outdoor lighting is crucial for all home and business owners to illuminate your home’s exterior once the sun goes down. However, having outdoor lighting installed during the cold, winter months isn’t ideal because it can be difficult to bury wires under the ground when it is cold and hard. That’s why opting for an outdoor lighting installation or retrofit is best during the summer months. Make sure to choose a product line that has long-lasting products made from durable materials so that your outdoor lighting system will be corrosion-resistant and less likely to malfunction or break.
