Home Improvement Projects from Now to New Year's
Tackling projects one at a time is a great way to be sure you get the most out of your efforts. Here are monthly home improvement project ideas to take you from now to New Year’s.
Revitalize the Exterior – Pressure wash the exterior of your home, caulk, add weather stripping, and clean windows. June is the perfect time for a thorough cleaning before the heat of summer.
Fertilize the Lawn – In the South, temperatures really start to heat up in July and August. July is the ideal time to fertilize your lawn so it gets the nutrients it needs to survive and thrive in the summer heat.
Paint the Exterior – While it’s still hot out, August temperatures are usually steady day-to-day. This is a great time to paint the exterior of your home without extreme temperatures ruining your paint.
Replace Windows – Replacing windows is best done when the outdoor temperatures stay steadily between 400F and 800F, making the month of September the perfect time tackle the project.
Upgrade Appliances – October is the best month to start thinking about updating appliances. Many retailers start holiday sales and promotions during the fall season. This is also the time of year when many manufacturers unveil new models.
Remodel Bathrooms – November is a good time to remodel your bathrooms because contractors usually have less business this time of year, which means you are more likely to get a good rate and a fast turnaround.
Build a Deck – Like bathroom renovating, December is also a great time to utilize the slow contractor season to build an outdoor deck. With less humidity and lower temperatures, your deck is likely to be more even, consistent, and have less warping.
