If you’re looking for a fresh start this spring, you don’t need to move out of your current residence. Giving it a facelift could be all that you need to do. Here are some useful suggestions for home improvement projects to tackle this spring before summer arrives.
Maintain Your Roof
Because spring and summer typically pound your house with stronger storms than other times of the year, it becomes even more critical to maintain your roof. That’s because if water gets into your attic or your walls, then it can cause significant damage that will cost hundreds of dollars and weeks of work to undo and repair. The first step in keeping your roof up to date is to look for any missing shingles. Even if no shingles are missing, it’s entirely possible that the time has come for you to replace the shingles that are still there.
Clean Your Windows
Now that the roof is safe, it’s time to focus on your windows. The windows need to be clean, not only so you can boost curb appeal, but to continue enjoying the view around your home. Plus, a freshly-cleaned window can let in more natural light, allowing you to save money on your utility bills. Cleaning both sides of the glass is much easier than you expect. You can also inspect your windows for signs of damage and determine whether or not you need to replace them. Look at every window around your home, and also pay attention to the condition of the window frames, windowsills, and surrounding trim.
Put On New Siding
Another way to protect your home’s exterior is to put on new siding. One home improvement project that isn’t too taxing is dealing with the siding that you have right now. Removing a piece of siding that has warped or has come loose won’t take too much time, even if you have to give up an afternoon working on it. You could also switch to vinyl siding since it is much easier to take care of and can also help you save energy.
Install New Gutters
Along with roofing and siding, gutters are your home’s best defense against water damage. Your house can’t stand without solid foundations, and the gutter system you rely on helps protect that base. Clear out clogs and blockages and patch up any leaks you find. If that doesn’t improve your situation, then you will need to replace your current gutters. Using gutters and drain pipes together is an affordable solution that is well worth the investment, as is using gutter guards when the need arises.
