Sweet summertime in Indiana: time for BBQs, swimming pools, and spending as much time outside as possible. For homeowners, summertime also means it’s time to tackle some of those home improvement projects that are harder to do in the winter months. Summer home improvement projects can range from small repairs to major remodeling, but one thing is for sure – it’s the ideal time to assess, repair, and make upgrades to your home. At Booher Remodeling Company, we know you have a honey-do list a mile long and we’d like to help you tackle it. Read on for our top projects to start with!
1. Pressure Wash the HouseNothing beats the satisfaction of pressure washing your home. This is a quick and inexpensive way to spruce up your home by removing dirt, sediment, and other debris that has accumulated on your siding through the fall and winter. As an added bonus, pressure washing also removes mold, mildew, and algae, resulting in a longer life for your siding. While you have the pressure washer out, go ahead and do your driveway, walkway, and deck/patio. Your whole exterior will be bright and shiny by the end of the day.
2. Remodel the Kitchen
Most experts agree that the most reliable way to boost the value of your home is by improving the kitchen. However, if you haven’t budgeted for a full kitchen renovation or your kitchen just doesn’t need that much work, consider smaller, easier changes you can make this summer. Consider replacing old appliances, updating the lighting, painting the cabinets, or adding a backsplash or island. These small changes are perfect for a summer project and will pay for themselves should you want to sell in the future.
3. Update Your Outdoor Space
Of course, summertime means you’re spending more time outdoors, so it’s a great time to update your space. Whether you need a patio or deck added to your yard or you just need to spruce up your existing one, now is the time to get to work. If you have a great patio already, consider adding elements to transform it to an outdoor kitchen. Or if you like your deck but it’s looking shabby, re-stain it – along with your fence – for a fresh new look.
