With the official start of Spring on March 19th, homeowners can begin to plan their home improvement projects for the season. As the weather warms up, these home improvement tasks become easier to manage and also essential for maintaining the quality of your home through the wet and unpredictable weather of the spring and summer. Read on for a few of the most popular spring home improvement projects you should consider planning with T&G Builders in the next few months.
Replace Your Gutters
A properly installed gutter system is essential for water transfer and drainage, as well as the structure of your house. Fortunately, installing gutters is a simple process, although the technique depends on the type of gutter. If you are replacing your gutters yourself, make sure that you are installing the same system you had before.
Upgrade Your Deck
It can be challenging to maintain a deck because it is continuously exposed to outside elements. Because of this, it can really take a beating during the snowy and rainy winter months. If you want to enjoy your deck during the spring and summer, however, it is worth considering what upgrades you can undertake now. Check the structure and frame, and look for cracks, rotten boards, or loose nails. T&G Builders has helped many clients design and build new decks and can offer expert advice on which materials are best for your new deck.
Inspect Your Air Conditioning
One of the most straightforward and most necessary spring home improvement projects is inspecting your air conditioning unit. Making sure that your unit is properly working will save you energy costs, but also extend the lifespan of your A/C unit. The best time for a checkup from a professional is in early spring.
Repair Your Roof
A roof keeps you dry and sheltered in your home, so it is essential to make sure it is in its best condition. Common spring home improvement projects associated with roof repairs include swapping shingles, fixing curled corners, and repairing cracked shingles. If you spot a problem, no matter how small, it is vital to fix it as soon as possible. On your roof, even a small problem can quickly become a bigger one.
Replace Your Siding
Siding protects your house from harsh elements, in addition to giving your house character and value. You can upgrade your home by replacing your siding, but sometimes the process of choosing new siding can be overwhelming. There are many materials and styles you can choose from for your siding; before selecting, consider the cost, reliability, ongoing maintenance, and environmental responsibility of each material. T&G Builders can discuss with your best siding options, and how each may go with the established design of your home.
