Summers are a great time in Michigan. It is the perfect time to enjoy the beach, BBQ’s, and flip flops. It is also the perfect time for homeowners to tackle home improvement projects. The weather is finally perfect – no snow, ice, or excessive wind. The summer months are the perfect time to assess your home, make general repairs, perform maintenance, and take on larger scaled projects like the installation of a new roof, kitchen remodels (YEAH FOR BBQ’S), porch upgrades, upgraded decking, and more. Depending on your budget and the renovations you choose, you can increase the overall value of your home by updating the space.
The Most Common Summer Projects
- Pressure Washing – Nothing speaks louder than a well-maintained home. Power washing your homes siding and decking is an inexpensive way to clean your home. Removing mold, algae, and mildew can result in increasing the longevity of your sidings lifespan. Pressure washing costs about $500 for a professional to complete or for the DIY a power washer can be rented for about $50 for four hours.
- Landscaping – Any home improvement that increases your homes curb appeal will add value to your home. Landscaping doesn’t have to be complex, simple lawn care and maintenance with a few flower beds to enhance the space can really transform a home. If you are not interested in hiring a professional landscaper, it is important to have a plan in place before diving into landscaping.
- Kitchen Renovations – When it comes to kitchens it is best for homeowners to work with a reliable contractor as kitchen remodeling can take a quick turn in the wrong direction. You don’t need every one of the latest gadgets, top line appliances, and exotic materials to create a kitchen that is the envy of the neighborhood. The most important aspect is the layout and flow of your space.
A small kitchen can function better than a large kitchen with the right layout design. An important aspect in renovating, especially in kitchens is lighting. Modern lighting overhead and underneath cabinetry can transform the overall feel of the space. Including a backsplash is always an inexpensive way to add to the look of the space. Believe it or not, it is possible to completely redo the look and feel of a kitchen can cost as little as $4,000 when you hire a professional kitchen contractor.
- Deck Additions – Summer is all about creating an environment outdoor that is both functional and comfortable. Adding to your deck is a great way to make the space usable. Outdoor kitchen spaces, comfy lounge spaces, sitting nooks, fire pits, high top bars, the list of outdoor decking renovations that add value to your space are endless. Renovate your deck into a space that feels like you are on a constant vacation.
