Spring is Around the Corner! Great Spring Projects to Plan
As the temperatures begin to rise, we catch glimpses of springtime glory! Before we know it, the flowers will be in full bloom and the grass will need to be mowed. Between now and then, you may want to consider making a few improvements to your home. Now is a great time to get projects done because the weather is ideal… not too hot or too cold. Here are some great home improvement ideas to consider:
Get Your Siding Looking Great
What typically happens during the winter months is that exterior siding forms a buildup of debris and dust. Once spring arrives, you want to get the winter-wear off of your siding in order for your home to look its best. We suggest beginning with a good power wash to get the residue off of your home. From there, you will be able to tell if your home has areas where the siding needs to be replaced. Put up new strips if old ones are faded, chipped, cracked, or broken. These simple fixes can really help your home look great. If you notice much of your siding is faded, why not replace all of your siding? Give your home a total facelift in no time!
Spruce Up Your Outdoors
There are many areas of your home that cannot be easily maintained during the cold winter months. These can include your deck, landscaping, fencing, or even your patio. Now that the weather is warmer, you can get outside to tackle these areas. Remove weeds and remnants of last year’s annual plants. Power wash the deck or fence and remove old paint or stain chips, then re-paint or re-stain to look fresh. Clean up the patio and power wash or acid wash the area, depending on what material your patio is made of. These simple projects can make the outside of your house look brand new!
What About Your Windows?
This is a great time of year to bring your windows up to the same level of perfection as the rest of your home. You may only need to wash your windows and clean off the old screens. If you have old, chipped or drafty windows, it might be time to consider replacing them. New windows are an excellent investment since you begin ‘saving’ money in utility bills from day one!
Spring projects may not be a lot of fun, but they do make a huge difference in the appearance of your home. If you want to add new windows to your springtime project list, then reach out to the experienced professionals here at Empire Window Company!
