Home Improvement Projects to Check Off Your List This Summer

Spring weather is finally upon us, giving homeowners everywhere the chance to daydream about their next home improvement projects. The spring and summer months are ideal for checking off some items from your house’s to-do list. Installation is typically a breeze, and you’ll have plenty of time to entertain and show off your new features to your guests!

If you aren’t quite sure what to invest in next, here are a few ideas of projects that make a big improvement on your house and improve your curb appeal or home value.

Add or Update Your Garage
Is your garage functional, or has it seen its better days? Upgrading your current garage, or replacing it entirely, can increase your home’s value and make you love your new space even more. Consider adding new storage or even an epoxy floor for smaller improvements, or tear down your aging garage and add a new one that complements your home’s architectural design.

New Windows
If you have not installed new windows in the past 20 years, now is the time. You won’t believe how great new windows can make your home look on the outside and on the inside. Choose from a variety of designs to complement your home’s design, or even consider adding a window or two to a place where you don’t get enough natural light.

New Gutters
Adding new gutters to your home may not seem like an improvement project that you’ll gush to your neighbors about, but new gutters make a big difference in the look and safety of your home. New gutters are ideal for homes that experience regular flooding and can even extend the life of your foundation or roof.

New Roofing
Have you noticed some discoloration or warping of your roof shingles? Cold and icy Chicagoland winters take a toll on house roofs. Consider replacing yours before you notice signs of crisis, like flooding or water damage.

No matter what exterior improvements you want to make this season, work with the experienced team at Stanley Exteriors. We offer exceptional customer service and communicate with every client during the construction process, from design to installation. Give us a call today to set up your free onsite consultation.
