Spring Home Renovation Projects You Can Plan Today

Spring Home Renovation Projects You Can Plan Today

The weather outside is nasty with snow, freezing rain and slush making venturing about an arduous and miserable task. It is about this time of the season where people’s patience is most tested as the reality of weeks more of enduring a wintry blast come into play.

You cannot do anything about the weather, but you can take this seemingly low productive time to plan out your spring home renovation projects. From the lawn to the interior of your home, there are a number of projects you can plan for today and tackle once the weather improves.

Reseal an asphalt driveway — If your driveway is made from asphalt, regular resealing can keep it from breaking up. It can also thwart oil stains and oil damage including engine oil and transmission fluid. Driveways should be sealed once every two to four years, but not more often as overdoing it can cause the coating to split and fade. Your hardware store or home center has the supplies that you need.

Trim those trees — This project can be handled in early spring or during the winter. Trees that have incurred storm damage, show signs of disease or are simply overgrown should be pruned or removed. Work with a tree cutting professional to assess your trees and to come up with a plan that is right for you.

Replace your gutters — Perhaps last fall finally broke your resolve. You climbed up on a ladder an unaccounted number of times to clear your gutters and then returned within a week or two to do it all over again. There has got to be a better way! Fortunately, there is: replace your current gutter arrangement with so-called “leaf guard” or “leaf helmet” gutters. Expect that a gutter professional will install new flashing along the edge of your roof before your home is outfitted with new gutters. You’ll also be given new downspouts to ensure that guttered water is safety removed away from your home.

Review your heating and cooling needs — Is your home being adequately heated and cooled? If not, it may be time to assess your home’s heating and cooling system. If you have central heat, but not central air and your current system needs to be replaced, you may find that the investment in a full-blown HVAC system is worth it. No more window air conditioners. No more moving fans around to distribute cool air. Work with a contractor to design a system that is best for your home.

Home Tips
