Spring isn’t just the best time to tackle any spring cleaning or landscaping prep; it’s also the perfect time for renovations! Before the hot weather arrives, now is the ideal time to tackle those major changes. With the big jobs handled early on, you can enjoy a more relaxing and comfortable break during the summer months.
Remi’s Handyman Services in Edmonton provide a full range of both interior and exterior commercial and residential services. They share some renovations that are best tackled during the warmth of spring:
Remodel the kitchen
Not only is the weather finally warming up, but what better excuse to get outside than by remodeling your kitchen? You can make the most of the outdoors right away while your kitchen is transformed. Or, maybe you have a simpler change in mind. Even just upgrading the tiles, changing out countertops or choosing a new colour scheme are great ways to add a fresh, new style to your kitchen. Plus, with all the colours of spring, you’ll have plenty of natural inspiration.
Repair or update your driveway
Driveways are exposed to a lot of elements and factors over the winter months but still see little spring maintenance. Concrete driveways, in particular, can become damaged from using salt over the winter. Any new cracks or wear are not only unsightly, but they also invite the risk of developing into more serious future problems. Weeds may take root in the cracks or water from rain will seep in, either spreading the cracks or causing further damage. Take advantage of the warm weather to fill and reseal any cracks and resurface the area. Likewise, why not take the chance to change the appearance with a new texture? Not only is spring the time for new changes, but it’ll also give your home’s curb appeal a fresh boost.
Build a deck
Have you always dreamed of having your own outdoor living space, but never gotten around to it? Well, now is the time! Spring is the perfect time to build a new deck, so that come summer you can reap the benefits. Not are decks a major quality of life boost, they also add major value to your home. According to Remodeling Magazine’s 2020 cost vs value report, a new wooden deck will recoup as much as 72.1%. You can even double up on your backyard transformation and plan a new landscape or outdoor design to match.
Since additions are typically added onto the existing structure, they leave your home open to the weather. Fall and winter may be quieter months for additions, but the weather isn’t as warm. Drywall will also be easier to install, as cold weather or moisture causes issues slow drying or freezing joints. Plus, with a new addition, you can double up on some other exterior changes. Take the opportunity to change your home’s colour scheme or siding style and double up on that new curb appeal. Since home additions are also a major project, get an early head start to give you plenty of time to complete it. There won’t be a rush to finish before winter, so you can really focus on getting the right details and quality of work.
