Take advantage of the perfect weather outside and renovate your property in the springtime. That is the best time to renovate your house, especially if there is outdoor work involved. And after you’re through with the remodelling, get your spring cleaning on. That’s two birds with one stone.
Here are 3 home renovation projects you should tackle during the spring.
#1 Repairing The Kitchen
In all fairness, it is unthinkable to willingly give up the convenience of your oven, sink and dishwasher but you have to make certain sacrifices in order to get the kitchen you’ve been dreaming of. Having said that, spring is probably the ideal time to get the remodelling started. Why? Well, you can fire up the old barbecue for one and eat outside while your kitchen is being renovated. That’s a great way to enjoy the nice spring evenings with your family as well. Useful tip: The upside of eating outside is that you can always use paper plates and plastic utensils.
#2 Replacing The Windows
This is yet another big undertaking but in the end, replacing the old windows might very well save you thousands of dollars in energy costs. But for the whole process to run as smooth as possible you need a good plan. To start of with, choosing the right time for it is of the essence. I imagine you don’t want to be exposed to the quirks of Mother Nature for long periods of time. If that is the case, there’s no better time to do it than springtime. The project also requires a certain level of precision. For one, you need to order to right window size. Then comes the removal of the old windows and frames. After you’re done with that, make sure you fix any issues around the old framework. This whole process is quite a handful but the pros far outweigh the cons.
#3 Building An In-Ground Pool
Who in their right mind doesn’t want having a pool in their back yard? For this one you’ll definitely need a professional pool builder. Needless to say, picking a credible contractor for the job is a must if you want to enjoy a pool that you like. Bear in mind that the building itself will take you a few months so establishing a budget, choosing a shape and picking a builder must begin in the winter. The pool building itself should begin in spring so that you can enjoy your new pool throughout the whole summer.
Timing is everything, so plan carefully and good luck.
