If you are a homeowner, you likely have found that home projects can pile up over time. As the weather gets warmer, you might be more aware of all the jobs you need to complete inside and outside of your home. The following are just three home projects you can plan for this summer that are easier to complete in the warmer months.
Maintaining Your Garden
Once the harsh and cold weather is gone, you can get started on your backyard garden. Till your garden, stock up on soil, and buy seeds or plant starters. If you don’t want to tackle this project on your own, you can hire a landscaping company to help. Look at some inspiration photos or drive around neighborhoods near you to get an idea of how you’d like to design your garden and landscaping.
Replacing Your Roof
Roofing improvements can be especially important if you live in an older house. If it has been 20-30 years since the roof on your house has been replaced, it is likely time. You might not necessarily need to replace your entire roof, but even adding some new shingles can help keep it maintained. It can be easier to find someone to do this job during the summer months. Call around and get some quotes before diving into this project. Have an inspection first to see what improvements really need to be done.
Making Backyard Improvements
Sometimes we need to relax and just want to sit on the deck with our favorite book. To do this, you’ll need to make some improvements to your backyard to get the most out of it. Add some comfortable seating for a spot to wind down at the end of the day. You can find more options and sales for patio furniture during the summertime. You might even want to consider splurging a little more this summer and add a hot tub or swimming pool. If you love outdoor entertaining these can be worthwhile investments. Installing a swimming pool or hot tub will need to be completed during the summer months to avoid dealing with snow or rain.
The above suggestions are a good way to keep yourself busy this summer and improve your home. Don’t let the summer months go to waste and find even more ways to add value to your house.
