Creating and maintaining their dream home is something which most homeowners aspire to. Summer time can present the opportunity to complete some easy home improvement projects that would have been harder and in some cases impossible to complete at other times of the year.
The British weather has a reputation of being quite unpredictable however homeowners looking to do any renovation or home improvement work on the outside of their property should consider doing so in the spring/summer period which generally speaking is April – September. Projects such as painting the outside of the house, re-landscaping a garden or even adding an extension (where a great deal of the work is done outside) are all heavily dependent on good weather and whilst there are no guarantees that the British weather will hold out, the chances of good whether are increased at this time of year and the odds would be in your favour.
Summer holidays are often eagerly anticipated by children and sometimes even parents, however there comes a point where ideas for family days out have been exhausted and parents are left with bored children to try and entertain. This is where those odd jobs around the house come in, the summer holidays are a brilliant opportunity to get the whole family involved in home improvement projects such as painting or even furniture up-cycling. Just remember to make them fun and light hearted with family bonding at the very core of the project, as it is important to remember that they are ‘on their holidays’ and you don’t want them to be too tired going back to school.
The smell of a freshly painted room can be quite refreshing however it can also be overpowering and in some cases, depending on what type of paint you are using it can be dangerous so it is important the homeowners have a decent amount of ventilation when painting a room in their house. Homeowners looking to redecorate a room in their house with paint should consider doing so in the spring/summer months as ventilation will be a much more pleasant experience with good weather. Homeowners looking to install new windows should also look at doing so in the summer months for the same reason, having good weather will make it more bearable and generally speaking easier. And for property owners looking to install eco-friendly windows, installing them at the very start of the summer period will allow you to start benefiting from them straight away.
One last job you may want to consider doing this summer is clearing guttering, quite often over the winter period gutters can get clogged up and this if left can cause flooding issues. Property maintenance jobs can be just as important as renovation projects and intact they can even help prevent the need to fully renovate.
