Summer break is here and there is nothing like backyard pool parties or BBQ’s!  For many homeowners, the summer is a time for home improvement items and upkeep of the exterior of the home.  These are a few of our most common summer home improvement projects!

Pressure Washing

Now that warm weather is here, it is a great time to break out that pressure washer!  Use it to clean the fence, siding, and patio areas of your home to keep them looking new. Be sure to follow the instructions on the pressure washer unit to prevent damage.

Re-Stain Your Deck and Fence

After you power wash the deck and fence, it may look a little dried out and discolored.  Now is a great time to re-stain the deck and fence to keep it looking brand new.

Replace Siding and Re-Paint the Exterior of Your Home

Siding can rot and start to flake off leaving your home looking like it isn’t being taken care of.  Summer is a great time to remove that rotten siding and give your home a fresh coat of paint.  This will ensure your home stays in great condition for years to come.

Replacing Your Worn-Out Roof

Are you dealing with a roof leak or missing shingles?  On average, you can expect a roof to last you 15-20 years before it needs to be replaced.  Warm summer months are a great time to replace the roof because the new shingles will require heat in order to form a weatherproof seal.

Install An Outdoor Kitchen

Summer months are perfect for outdoor entertaining.  Outdoor kitchens can add value to your home and provide an outdoor living space that you can’t beat.  You can talk with a professional about the layout and details required to create the perfect outdoor kitchen.
