Now that the weather is warmer, there are a few home maintenance and remodeling projects you might want to consider getting a jump on. Tackling these projects in the spring and summer will prove to be an investment you’ll enjoy during warm weather and beyond!
Decks, Patios, and Sun Porches
There’s no doubt you’ll enjoy your spring, summer, and even fall more with the addition of a deck or sunroom. These features expand your livable space and make everything from entertaining to lounging a bit more relaxed. Want some sun porch inspiration?

Gutters and Drains
With storm season in full swing, your home’s drains and gutters are sure to get a workout. Make sure they’re in peak form by cleaning or replacing your gutters. In addition, position all downspouts away from your home’s foundation to avoid flooding.
Now’s the time to take a walk around the house and see how well your siding endured the long winter. Home exteriors take the brunt of snow and ice while we stay curled up inside! Spring and summer are a great time to replace or upgrade your home’s siding, as well as additional practical or decorative exterior features.
Winter is also hard on driveways and sidewalks, and they may not be in the best condition come spring and summer. Check both for damage such as cracks or divots, and make repairs as necessary. If you are considering re-sealing your driveway this year, spring and early summer are good times to get this project underway. Just make sure you schedule this project before it gets too hot!
Why do an interior remodel during the peak of beautiful weather? Because you can eat outside! With a grill and a backyard dining setup, suddenly being displaced from your kitchen for a short time won’t seem like such an obstacle. Plus, you’ll be all decked out with a new kitchen well before the winter holidays arrive! Here are ten kitchen features to consider adding to your home this spring or summer.
