The summer season is great for many different reasons. For some, it’s the time to work on their tan. For others, it might be a way for them to take a trip to the beach.
But for homeowners, this is prime time for them to finally get some home renovations completed. The reason behind it is simple: the weather isn’t acting up and will not cause any delays. In other seasons, rain and snow might make you waste several weeks just because your renovation team can’t get to your residence.
So, if you want to get renovations done and get them done fast, summer is the time to do it. Here are three home renovations you should consider this summer.
Upgrade Your Backyard
If you have a backyard and it contains nothing but grass, you’re just wasting space.
A backyard can be converted into the perfect getaway spot where you can relax and enjoy the sun with your family.
If you want a place to sit in the backyard, you can keep things simple. Just get a few comfortable lawn chairs and put up an umbrella.
But, that’s not enough, is it?
Kick things up a notch by installing a deck, getting a few fancy wooden chairs, and installing something like a palapa.
Now, a palapa might be a bit too exotic, but you can simplify things by installing any type of wooden shade. However, you need to keep in mind that you need to make sure the colors sit well with your house. It’s in the backyard, but you still need to put some thought put into the theme.
Increase Your House’s Energy Efficiency
It may be summertime right now, with the A/C blasting and all the fans on. But we know that a few months from now, you’re going to be cranking up that thermostat to make sure you can survive the cold weather.
If you’ve been paying a fortune for electricity bills, there are some summer upgrades to help with that. You can change up the insulation around your house and ensure that you’re able to retain the heat inside your house.
Furthermore, you can swap out windows and get ones that are helpful in energy conservation. For instance, replacing single pane windows with double pane ones can make a significant difference in the insulation of both heat and cold. Upgrading to a smart HVAC system can also help bring down costs.
Painting the Interior
Painting is a nightmare during the winter season. The house has to stay closed to keep it warm, and at the same time, there’s the odor of paint stuck inside your house. It’s enough to drive anyone mad.
If you don’t want that smell coming from your rooms and hallways, summer is the perfect time for these upgrades. Choose an early morning or evening time to paint your rooms. This way, you can conveniently pop open the windows by just an inch or so, to let the fumes dissipate, without putting your A/C system on overdrive.
This ensures that the fumes and odor won’t spread through the house. Additionally, letting in a cool morning or late evening breeze can help the paint dry more quickly.
Summer is definitely prime time to relax with the family. On the other hand, it’s also a great season to get some home renovations completed.
