Summer is the perfect time to remodel areas of your home because you’ll be spending more time outdoors. That can mean that your backyard gets a lovely overhaul, or it can mean that you’ll be grilling out while your kitchen gets that upgrade you’ve been dreaming about. A little work in the summer can also pay off in the form of long-term benefits, like increased home value, or simply enjoying your space a bit more. Here are some of our ideas for the best summer projects.
Build a Shed
Is your garage filled with all your lawn equipment, or do you have trouble finding room in there to park your car? Building a shed is one of the most popular summer projects because it’s the best time to upgrade your outdoor space, and building a shed can help you significantly decrease the clutter in your home or garage. You could even upgrade your existing shed into an office space or guest house if that’s the kind of space you need instead.
Roofing, Siding, and Walkway Repairs
If it’s been a while since you’ve done any maintenance to any of these areas, summer is a great time to check-in. You might be surprised at the number of options now available for vinyl siding, too. If yours hasn’t been updated since you purchased your home, you might not know that now there are very durable and affordable options in a variety of colors and styles. You can even get affordable vinyl that imitates the look of much more expensive materials.
Your summer projects should also include any roofing and/or sidewalk repairs if needed. Now is the time to fill cracks in the concrete or replace broken shingles. Of course, you don’t want anyone tripping on your walkways when heading to your backyard barbecue, but it also looks a lot nicer to have the walkways repaired.
Replacing your windows can be one of your easiest summer projects and a great way to transform the look of your home. It can also help save on energy costs. If your windows are old and drafty, you probably noticed over the winter when the cold air was seeping through. Now that we’re into the first month of summer, get your windows replaced before winter (or even late fall) comes around again, and save yourself the discomfort of feeling cold while indoors, despite cranking the heat and paying that price.
