Summer is here and in full force! Summer is the ideal time to enjoy the outdoors, but it is also a great time to tackle some home remodeling projects that will increase the beauty, value and energy-efficiency of your home. There are some projects that are better taken on during the winter and those that are better in the summer. We are going to go over a few remodeling projects that are best taken on during the summer months.
Refresh Your Siding
Siding is a major part to any home. Siding protects a home from the harsh outdoor elements, and a weather-worn exterior can make your home look older than its years. Summer is a great time to look into replacing your siding to increase the value and curb appeal of your home. Some reports show siding replacement can provide an 80% return on investment in terms of resale value. Siding replacement is always an affordable way to give your home a completely new look.
Replace Your Roof
Installing a new roof can increase property value and even help with reducing energy cost. When choosing a new roof, consider choosing coatings and finishes that will help resist the elements and reflect sunlight away from the home. Over time, sunlight will wear away on the color of your roof and make it fade. A new roof is also much more cost-efficient than getting caught in the annual cycle of patching a leak over and over.
Change Those Gutters
Summer is also a great time to replace those old worn out gutters. Even if you’re not ready for new gutters, it may be time to install gutter guards. Gutter guards will extend the life of your existing gutters and leave you with less hassle during the fall season. Gutters without gutter guards will build up with more debris, causing them to become worn faster than they should due to the weight that is pushing down on them.
Install Replacement Windows
Not only can old, drafty, single-pane windows ruin your winter, they can also ruin your monthly budget. In some cases, newly installed windows can save homeowners as much as $500 per year in cooling and heating cost. New windows also instantly add value to your home. Summer is the perfect time to install new windows. Waiting until winter could result in the cold weather negatively impacting the installation.
Remodel Your Kitchen
Updating a kitchen is not a small task. There is a lot involved with a kitchen remodel. However, there are many reasons it can benefit you in the long run. Reports show homeowners can receive up to an 80% return on investment from a kitchen remodel. When selling a home, the kitchen is often the difference between a sale and no sale. For those who aren’t planning on selling their homes, kitchen remodeling is a great time to add some energy-efficient appliances that will put money back into your pockets over time. Summer is the ideal time for a kitchen remodeling project because the family spends more time outdoors and there is more than likely easy access to a grill for cooking while the oven is not able to be used.
