To keep your home in the best condition requires maintenance and care. Warmer spring weather often inspires homeowners to start projects and make improvements around the house. Before the heat of the summer, here are a few home improvement ideas you can tackle to help increase your property value and boost curb appeal.

Gutter Cleaning

Gutters direct the flow of rainwater away from your house. Over time, leaves, twigs, animal nests, and other debris accumulate in the gutters. Spend a spring day clearing away the debris so that water can flow freely through the guttering. Overflowing gutters lead to roof damage, water pooling in the yard, basement leaks, mold growth, and damage to the home’s siding.

Pressure Washing is a Great Task for Spring Home Improvement

Pressure washing your home is an easy task for a weekend when the weather will be nice. Rent a machine and spend the day cleaning sidewalks, the driveway, and your home’s siding. The house will look great, the paint will look newer, and you’ll boost the overall appeal of your property. If you don’t want to do it yourself, hire a professional company to handle the job.

Add Mulch to the Flower Beds

Mulch helps plants retain moisture and slows the growth of weeds. Add mulch to your flower beds, beneath shrubbery, and under trees to improve the look of your landscaping. Keep the mulch away from your home’s foundation. It can attract termites to the area.

Air Conditioning Maintenance

Spring is a great time to call a professional to tune-up your air conditioning unit or HVAC system before the heat of summer. Hire a professional to inspect the system, clean the unit, and change the filter. Regular maintenance of your heating and cooling systems will help them run more efficiently and extend the lifespan of the components.

Home Improvement Ideas: Inspect Window and Door Screens

With warmer weather, you’ll be tempted to open doors and windows to enjoy the fresh air. To keep bees, mosquitoes, flies, and other insects out of your home, inspect and repair the screens throughout the house. Replace any missing screens. Repair holes and tears to help the screens function at their best.
