As we head into spring, many of us look for every opportunity to prepare our homes for the warmer months ahead. In addition to refreshing your home with the annual spring cleaning, there are plenty of spring home projects that’ll resolve any winter damages you’ve experienced, as well as transition your home for nicer weather.
Get some inspiration from the experts at Gonyea Transformations with these spring home improvement projects:
No matter the size of your budget, the following unfinished basement updates will help you transform your lower level into a space you and your family will enjoy spending time in while making new memories:
Between snow accumulation and fluctuating temperatures, our roofs must endure a lot during winter months. The formation of ice, for example, can gradually lift roof materials, creating cracks for potential water damage. While you may not consider repairing or replacing your roof an exciting spring home improvement project, it certainly is worth the investment. A vulnerable roof that’s missing shingles can open you up to serious complications. Check the status of your roof, and contact a professional roof contractor to assess any damages and recommend options for repairs and/or replacements.
Throughout the fall and winter, your home’s gutters collect debris and dirt. To prepare your gutters for spring, perform a thorough cleaning by removing any built-up leaves or twigs, so they can properly drain water away from the home’s structure and foundation. If you’ve noticed any gutter leaks from melting snow or spring showers, it’s time to consider updating your gutter system to prevent costly water damage down the road.
Refresh the exterior of your home this spring by updating the siding. There are many siding options available that come in a variety of stylish colors to re-energize your home’s curb appeal, including brick, vinyl, or stone. Siding adds to the aesthetic appeal of your home and also protects the structure from the outer elements. If you notice any splitting or missing siding, it’s time to replace it. Otherwise, you can give your siding a deep cleaning with a power washer to remove built-up dirt and grime that’ll leave it sparkling and looking brand new!
Your front door sees a lot of foot traffic between friends, family, and house guests. Having a dingy-looking entryway can make the exterior of a home feel outdated. Refreshing your front entryway is one of the most affordable home-improvement tips for spring, as even an inexpensive fresh coat of paint can make a world of difference. From updating your house number and door hardware to decorating the entryway with spring shrubs and layered welcome mats, the smallest details can truly modernize a space.
● This spring, choose a bold color to update your door, and frame the entryway with a pair of potted plants to show it off.
Having a properly sealed home keeps it protected from outdoor elements and improves energy efficiency. Cracks in window caulking and weather stripping create leaks in the seal of your home’s thermal envelope, allowing the outside air in and the climate-controlled inside air out. Re-caulking your windows and doorways and replacing damaged weather stripping strengthens the seal of your home, maintaining your preferred living temperature and preventing water damage.
Spring is a great time to prepare your outdoor living spaces for enjoying the upcoming warmer weather season. Depending on your house and property, there are so many outdoor living space ideas that will make ideal spring home projects, including the following:
