5 Summer Home Maintenance Projects To Keep You Busy

You might be busy preparing your home for summer so you’re ready to welcome friends and family over for barbecues and parties, but it’s also worth thinking about some vital home maintenance projects that demand your attention. While you may have plenty of plans to do nothing all summer, you don’t want to fall and realize there’s too much to do. With that in mind, here are five summer projects to keep you busy.

Prepare Your Garden

You’ll be spending a lot of time in your garden over the summer, so you may as well make it the place to be. There are plenty of ways to jazz up your garden to make it the perfect spot, such as installing comfortable seating, decking, or even somewhere to cool off. Of course, if you just want a place to relax, mowing the lawn and trimming back the bushes will make the space easier to manage and give you something to work from if you feel inspired.

Repair the Roof

If you’ve been meaning to fix the roof for a while but have not had the chance because of the weather, summer is your chance to finally repair gaps and draughts that have plagued your home for too long. Researching a local roofing contractor with great reviews can solve your problems, especially since roofing work is perhaps too dangerous for you. By getting your roof fixed now, you won’t have anything to worry about when the temperatures drop and the weather turns.

Service Your Air Conditioner

You’ll likely use your air conditioning a lot during the summer, too, especially on days when it’s too hot to be outside. Because of this, take the time to get your AC serviced or do it yourself. You can clean and replace the filter or check for any issues that affect efficiency so it works well throughout the summer and keeps the home cool and comfortable.

Powerwash the Driveway

During the winter, it snows or rains too much to bother with the driveway. However, if you want to boost curb appeal for another year, you can powerwash the driveway and any other surfaces around the home. This power washing guide can teach you everything you need to know, including safety tips (such as wearing closed-toe shoes) to help you remove the dirt and grime from your drive and make it look brand new.

Book Companies That Don’t See Much Summer Business

There could be a few household issues you’ve not been able to fix for years because the companies are always booked up during peak times. If this is the case, you can take advantage of slower seasons for gutter-clearing companies or chimney repair services so they can solve your problems. Since people don’t use their fireplaces in the summer, cleaners may offer better rates than normal, so take advantage of these deals to get your home perfect.

Summer Time

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you can lounge on a deck chair for weeks at a time. Getting these maintenance jobs out of the way as soon as possible means you’ll have plenty of time to relax, go on vacation, or finally finish that book so you can recharge your way over the summer.
