For many, these are troubling times. For those gratefully spared from the difficulty of dealing with COVID-19, many have chosen to take this time to spend with family or tackle long-awaited home improvements.
But the fact stands, some improvement projects are simply best left to the professionals. However, it is understandable that inviting a group of strangers into your home may be the last thing someone would want to do now.
Luckily, as the weather warms up, now is the perfect time to jumpstart your outdoor home improvement projects. With these 5 projects, you can be the envy of your neighbors without any face-to-face contact with your contractor!
Upgrade Your Deck
Early summer is the perfect time to build, upgrade, or expand your deck! In New England, summer is prime time for outdoor living and that begins with a comfortable space for family and friends to hang out. When choosing the right decking material, it can give you peace of mind to consult with a professional. A representative from Fairview would be happy to guide you in the right direction concerning material based on your location and expected use.
Replace Your Siding
Want an instant boost to your curb appeal? Whether you’re looking to sell this summer or simply want to be the best-looking house on the block, replacing your siding will definitely give your house the wow factor. Best practice dictates replacing vinyl siding every 10-20 years and wood siding even less frequently. Since it is not something that needs to be done often, it’s worth doing correctly the first time. As with decking, the options for siding can be overwhelming. Get peace of mind by talking to one of our pros at your local Fairview Millwork and Kitchens.
Add an Outdoor Kitchen
Little beats a summer cookout in New England and how better to show the chef in your family some love than with an all-new outdoor kitchen! These spaces can range in amenities from a fancy space to grill to almost the exact same amenities as a luxury indoor kitchen. With a new outdoor kitchen, you can redefine outdoor living as it suits your family’s lifestyle. Cabinets, appliances, and layout will all be important so be sure to contact a kitchen designer for help. And before you start planning, check out the new Outdoor Kitchen page on the Fairview Millwork website.
Replace Your Roof
Like replacing your siding, replacing your roof is not something that needs to be done often but it can give a fresh look, as well as provide necessary protection, to your home. As the weather warms up but before it gets too hot is the perfect time to have your roof replaced. The best part is, a whole crew can work on providing your family protection without breaking isolation best practices.
Finish Your Basement
Want to expand your living space in a way that will benefit you year-round? Think down! Basements are not just for storage. Add more bedrooms, another bathroom, or a big, out of the way playroom for the kids. And a basement with its own entry/exit can be completed in isolation for safety.
No matter what changes you want or need to make this season, many of the vital updates your home may need are possible to complete safely. Should you have any questions, contact your local Fairview Millwork and Kitchens and a representative will be happy to help.
