Spring is here! I am excited to share some thoughts from Alex of The Berger Bungalow on the perfect home improvement ideas for this time of year!
The flowers are blooming, the weather is starting to warm up, and more people are starting to get out and about, which means that more people are looking at your home. It is the perfect time for all things related to home improvements to do in the spring! If you are selling, this is the time to do so, but if not, I think that it is still so much fun to work on your home during the spring months.
For us, specifically, we are selling our home within the next 2 or so years (at most), so we have a pretty set to-do list, which includes painting our kitchen cabinets, adding in new countertops, replacing some wood, adding in new windows, and changing out flooring. Here are some other things that you may want to consider when doing home improvements in the spring:
Speaking of leaks, one way that you can prevent them is by having your roof inspected, repaired, and replaced when needed. While we were having our gutters cleaned, the contractor gave us a heads up that a few of our shingles need to be replaced and the pipes on the top of our house need to be re-sealed and/or replaced very soon. If you also need to get a roof inspection done, or if you already know that your roof needs work, Greater American Roofing is a Louisville KY commercial roofing company that installs beautifully crafted roofs that are second-to-none. Greater American Roofing provides one-of-a-kind, platinum quality service by assisting their customers every step of the way. They offer free inspections, design consultations and they even have an on-site executive team making sure that all goes well while installing the luxury roofing system. They focus on the highest quality for the most efficient cost, while still providing an excellent solution to any roofing need. Greater American Roofing provides system warranties that are backed by their manufacturer for up to 50 years. Other contractors do not offer this, but Greater American Roofing does because they are a GAF certified contractor, who only uses in-house crews that are trained and certified, as well. Being GAF certified is a huge deal! So, if you need your roof inspected, repaired or replaced, do not hesitate to reach out to this veteran owned & operated company because they do things the right way – the first time, while offering amazing customer service.
Think about your windows
Replacing or re-sealing your windows can be a huge upgrade for the hot weather months coming our way very, very soon. A few of our windows definitely need to be checked. How do we know? Condensation is forming on the inside of the window. This means that the seal is definitely broken. So, what we need to do is schedule an inspection and then figure out if we need to completely replace the window(s), or if we are able to just re-seal the windows. Ideally, I would love to be able to re-seal them because it will save us a lot of money, but we will see what they say! Thinking about your windows is a great home improvement to make any time of the year, but especially during the spring, so that you do not let in too much hot air, resulting in higher electric bills (and more sweat, too!).
There are so many home improvements to do in the spring and while this list just covers a few of my favorite to-dos, when you get creative and do a few upgrades here and there, it can completely refresh the inside and outside of your home, making it fresh for the spring and summer months ahead of us.
