Sacramento, CA doesn’t exactly have the harshest winter weather in the country, but it’s still cooler than the spring and summer months. Because of that, there are certain home improvement projects you might put off for warmer times. But once spring rolls around and hits the area in full swing, there are no more excuses. It’s time to take on the projects your home needs to have addressed. Here are a few items that are smart to take care of in the spring before the weather gets hotter and less pleasant.
Sure, you don’t live in Minnesota where the snow piles up on the roof, but there can still be damage created on your roof during the summer months. Perhaps you know your roof is leaky and you want to fix it before the spring rains settle in. Spring is the perfect time of year to get loose shingles replaced or a whole new roof put on. Your house will look great as summer approaches.
Does your home need refreshment by way of new paint on the siding or perhaps just the trim? Spring is the perfect time of year to get out your tools and paint away. You can paint things the same color to give the home an upgraded appeal or go with something completely new. Just make sure you don’t paint over peeling areas. They’ll need to be scraped off first.
If you want new plants in your yard, spring is the perfect time to put them in. You don’t want to plant new things during the harsh summer heat, and winter can be a bit too chilly for new items. Spring, however, is a great time to plan out a new scheme and put new plants into play. Whether you’re replacing old plants that didn’t make it, or coming up with something completely new, it’s a great time of year for planting.
If you’ve owned your home for quite some time, you can tell when things start to change. Leaky windows, for example, lead to uncomfortable temperatures and high energy bills. Sometimes you can tell just by looking at them that they need to be upgraded. Other times, the bills you receive and the air you feel within the home will tell you. Either way, if you need replacement windows, spring is ideal. You get them done before the hot summer months so you can remain cool and enjoy lower bills. And you don’t open your home up to the colder winter weather while the replacement is taking place.
