Best Home Improvement Projects to Tackle on Long Island this Summer

Summer is the perfect time to get started on the home improvement projects you could not accomplish previously on Long Island. The warm weather and mostly sunny skies create the perfect environment to start checking items off your honey-do list. We’ve compiled some of the best home improvement projects to get started on this summer, including your home windows, home inspections, and home exterior.

Pressure Wash Your Home’s Exterior

The summer weather makes everyone want to go outside and soak in some much needed Vitamin D. However, neither you, your family, nor your guests want to look at a dirty home while relaxing. Instead of delaying the inevitable, pull out or go rent a pressure washer and knock this item off your home improvement to-do list early on.

Inspect Your Home’s Mechanical Systems

Long Island weather can be difficult on many of your home’s systems. The earlier you get started with inspections on your home’s systems in the summer, the easier it will be to schedule any necessary repairs or replacements. The last thing you want to find out as winter is approaching is you will not have hot water for the foreseeable future. Get started early and you will thank yourself later.

Replace Your Home Windows

Drafty windows can greatly diminish your level of comfort throughout the year. They easily allow expensive heat and AC to escape from your home. While some DIY fixes may place a temporary band aid on the issue they are not a practical or long-term solution.

In order to create the optimal temperature in your home and avoid using more energy to heat/cool your home, replace your home windows. Depending upon the condition of your existing windows, replacement can practically pay for itself in energy costs savings.

If you know you also have drafty doors, consider ordering replacement doors as well to really lock in your monthly savings.

Your replacement windows and doors will go a long way toward improving your comfort levels throughout the summer months and all year long.
