7 Refreshing Spring Home Improvement Projects

Ideas so good, you’ll want to stay home for summer vacation.

If you’ve been thinking about improving the appearance and comfort of your home, now is the time to act! Warmer weather makes this the perfect season to tackle the spring home improvement projects on your list. Here are seven ways you can breathe new life into your space:

One of our spring home improvement projects is replacing your siding.

1. Paint the exterior

Now that the harsh winter weather is over, you have the chance to freshen up your home’s exterior with a new coat of paint. You might simply need to patch up small areas, but a whole new color scheme can give your home a brand new look. When applied carefully, the average paint job lasts a decade, so make sure you leave the task to a professional.

2. Replace the siding 

Perhaps you intended on just applying new paint but found that your siding is significantly damaged. In this case, you’re better off replacing it. A mid-range siding replacement delivers an impressive 86.7% average return on investment, making this a very worthwhile spring home improvement project. Check out this photo guide to exterior siding options for curb appeal your neighbors will envy.

3. Replace your windows and doors

If drafts plagued your home all winter, put a stop to this comfort problem by replacing old windows and installing new exterior doors with energy-efficient Renewal by Andersen® options. This refreshing upgrade improves home efficiency and appearance, both inside and out. Check out our latest specials on windows and doors for discounts.

4. Clean the gutters

Experts recommend that you clean your gutters twice a year, including once in the spring. If you deal with excessive leaf and debris buildup every year, consider a Gutter Shelter system and eliminate the need for bi-annual gutter cleaning. 

5. Construct an outdoor kitchen

A functional and beautiful outdoor kitchen complete with range, refrigerator, and sink allows you to prep summertime meals alongside your patio-lounging guests. Check out these chef-inspired outdoor kitchen ideas that will transform your backyard living space into the ultimate entertainer’s dream.

6. Reorganize the garage 

Spring and summer are the times of year to enjoy quintessential outdoor activities, including biking, paddle boarding, baseball, and tennis. But storing the equipment for these favorite warm-weather pastimes can pose a challenge for many homeowners. Start the season on the right foot by gutting and reorganizing the garage with these clever garage storage ideas. With overhead racks, wall systems, shelves, and cabinets, you can maximize your storage space and enjoy the activities you love.

7. Install a new deck

If beautiful springtime weather makes you want to spend more time outside, consider adding a single- or multi-level deck to your backyard. Get inspired with these deck design ideas using a variety of decking materials so you can create an al fresco gathering space your family can enjoy all season long.
