Spring is the perfect time for home improvement projects. Whether you have major repairs to make on your home or just a few landscaping issues you’re hoping to contain, take advantage of the warmer weather and sunshine and start taking care of business. Below, we list a few home improvement projects you should consider doing this Spring.
Now is the perfect time to take a look at your driveway. Depending on what region of the country you may live in or how harsh your Winter was, you may not have much to address. But for those who have been letting a chipping or cracking driveway go without repair for a little too long, it may be time to repave. Repaving your driveway can be as laborious as it is costly. So, you may want to consult your local paving professional before you attempt this project on your own. This is not, necessarily, a DIY project.
Take a Closer Look at Your Gutters
This is not new news to anyone who lives here in Charleston – – It rains a lot in Charleston. So it’s über important, for us, to make sure our gutters are in tip-top shape. Improper drainage can seriously damage your home’s foundation. So make sure your downspouts are properly placed and that they drain away from your home. Be sure to clear your gutters of any debris, too. Below we show you just how gnarly your gutters can get without the proper maintenance. Yikes!
AC Unit Check-Up
It has already hit 80°F here in Charleston and it’s only March. Now is the perfect time to reach out to local, certified heating & air pros to schedule a maintenance check-up. Here’s what lowcountry fav Charleston Heating & Air have to say:
Regular maintenance of your heating and air conditioning system is important to maintain its’ efficiency, keep utility costs low, lengthen the lifetime of the unit and helps avoid costly breakdown.
This final tip goes without saying…Spring is the perfect time to reevaluate your current lawn/yard and consider some landscaping. Perhaps, you’ve put in a ton of work during the previous Spring and Summer months and you only need seasonal maintenance.
If your lawn is a little worse for wear, then it may be a good idea to speak with your local landscaping professional. Professionals like New Leaf Landscape Construction will certainly come in handy if you want to turn your lawn into an enchanted garden oasis.
But, for smaller jobs a trip to a great Garden Center like Abide-A-While will suffice. There, the helpful staff on hand can provide you with tremendous guidance.
