At this time of year, many people have a spring cleaning list that they like to tackle. But did you know that there is also a common spring renovation list? In addition to wanting to complete bigger inside renovation projects like a basement renovation or upgrading a kitchen or bathroom, there are plenty of other renovation possibilities that are perfect to complete in the spring.
Spring is a great time to tackle renovation projects that support regular maintenance and help to ensure that your home remains in good condition. By keeping on top of these type of projects, your home will be ready for any larger renovations you may choose to take on later in the year.
Popular Spring Renovation Projects
If you aren’t sure where to start, here are five spring projects that are commonly tackled this time of year.
Roofing and Attic Insulation
Winter weather can cause damage to your roofline and wicked winds can make shingles loose. In addition, if you noticed the rooms upstairs feeling drafty, you most likely need to add more insulation. Now is the time to repair those problems. By adding extra insulation in the attic, not only will you help keep your home warmer in winter but it will help block the heat from the attic seeping into your house in summer.
Don’t forget to clean your eaves troughs too. Spring rain needs to have a clear path to flow and downspout channels should push water away from your foundation.
Landscaping can really increase property value and add great curb appeal. Flower beds, walkways, sitting areas and landscaping around pools or hot tubs can help create the outdoor oasis you can enjoy all summer long.
Paint the Exterior of Your Home
Snow, ice, frost, rain, and high humidity creates moisture that negatively affects the paint on the outside of your home. Moisture can cause several issues such as paint swelling and softening, which eventually leads to cracking, blistering, flaking, and peeling. Most homeowners are not usually aware of these types of issues until they make plans to paint the exterior, and then notice many areas in need of repair.
If the exterior paint on your home (this includes trim and shutters) is close to the end of its life expectancy, it won’t take long for any exposed wood to start rotting or causing other issues.
Add Outdoor Storage
Is your garage overrun with garden tools, storage bins, shovels and sports equipment? It may be time to consider another option and add a storage shed to your yard. Not only will this addition increase storage space for your family, but it will also add value to your property. While there are some shed’s you can buy already made, there are also many advantages to having one custom built so that it suits the space you have and your specific needs.
Build A Deck
From a small all wood structure to a large composite structure, there are so many options for creating a deck that will expand and enhance how you enjoy your home. Once the job is complete, you will have somewhere special to enjoy more time with family and friends.
