Summer is here, and it’s the perfect time to upgrade your custom-built home! With the weather at its best, it’s a safe time to make changes while you can escape on vacation! If you are looking into any exterior updates, in particular, summer is the best time to act as the reduced chance of rain will allow your project to be finished in time for you to enjoy the full benefits when the cold weather returns. These four renovation projects range from simple to significant, and yet each can have a dramatic impact on your custom home!
If you have older or low budget windows, you’re probably paying more for utilities and sacrificing comfort more than you need to! Not only does replacing your windows for more efficient options help to reduce your utility bills, but it makes your home more comfortable as well. With new windows, you’ll be less cold in winter and less hot in summer. Additionally, you can invest in new technology like windows with built-in UV blocking properties, which can help improve your health while reducing the effects of the sun and fading on your interiors.
Upgrading Your Front Door
What does your front door say about your home? As the first point of contact with your space, your front door can tell a lot about the style and mood of your home. It also makes a significant impact on the curb appeal! If your front door has seen better days or is merely lacking in attitude, now may be the perfect time for an update. Whether you replace it entirely or add a coat of paint, a door update is a significant step this summer!
Adding New Countertops
Are your countertops making your home more dated than it should be? Unlike cabinets, that can be cleaned and repainted; counters need to be replaced for a dramatic effect. If the past owner neglected the necessary maintenance, or if they don’t suit your style, making the switch to new counters can help revamp the entire space while increasing the value of your home.
Replacing Your Roof
Last but not least, replacing your roof is perhaps the most dramatic suggestion we have for your custom home improvement this summer, but it’s also the most important. After a long winter, your roof may need more than just repairs. Plus, if you hope to sell your home shortly, investing in a new roof is something that can make a massive difference in both your price and how quickly buyers will act.
