4 Home Improvement Projects You Can Tackle This Spring

At last, spring has arrived, and that means it’s time to get outside and enjoy the gorgeous weather. Going for walks, riding your bike, and playing sports are all awesome springtime activities. That said, there are some less-fun things that should be done while the weather’s nice.

Some of the most important tasks to squeeze into your springtime schedule involve outdoor home maintenance and improvement. After all, your home has probably seen some less-than-ideal conditions over the winter months, and fixing these things before the temperatures soar to outrageous highs is a must.

Wondering which tasks should be done in the next few months? Below, we’ve compiled a list of the top 4 home improvement projects you can tackle this spring.

Roof Repairs

Proper roof maintenance is a very important part of home ownership. After all, your roof is literally what shelters you from the elements. Therefore, you’ll definitely want to thoroughly inspect your roof as soon as the weather’s warm enough, just to make sure it didn’t take any major damage over the winter.

If you do find damage, be sure to address the problem as soon as possible. For some, this might be a DIY project, but for the vast majority, it should be something left to professionals. Either way, get the work done quickly before water damage has an opportunity to occur.

Gutter Cleaning and Replacement

Gutters can get gunked up fast. For this reason, it’s recommended that homeowners clean their gutters at least twice a year.

The best times to do this? Spring and fall. Taking care of this necessary piece of business during the milder seasons will help make it a more comfortable experience.

While you’re at it, check your gutters for damage. Gutters that have been bent out of shape, become rusted, and/or developed leaks need to be replaced. Remember, your gutter system is what ensures rainwater is properly drained. Without this system, your home could suffer from water damage.

Deck Repairs or Building

If your deck is damaged in any way, now’s the time to get outside and replace it. With warmer weather rolling in, you’ll likely be spending more time outdoors and on your deck. Unfortunately, a damaged deck with issues such as rotting wood or broken boards could be a major safety hazard, making this an imperative springtime job.

Don’t have a deck yet? Why not use the gorgeous weather to build one? A deck is an awesome addition to any home and can add to the overall resale value. Besides, who doesn’t want a nice deck? It’s a great outdoor place to host guests!

Exterior Painting

This is one of those jobs you may be putting off. It’s no secret that painting is a tedious job, and this is even more true when you’re painting the exterior of a building and have wind and rain to contend with. Still, painting does need to be done eventually, and spring is one of the best times to get it done.

Whether your entire home needs a new paint job or just the trim, you can make the task much more enjoyable by choosing a series of days with nice weather forecasts and putting on some music. Bring a few friends over to help! The painting will be done faster and the job will be much more enjoyable.

By using this lovely spring weather to get some of your home improvement tasks out of the way, you can spend the rest of the spring and summer enjoying the outdoors while admiring your beautiful home. We think this sounds like a pretty great way to spend the warmer months. What about you?
