Home Improvements for Spring

Spring Renovations

Spring is considered the best time of the year for selling your home. There are quite a few reasons why, so it's important that home sellers capitalize on the season by making various home improvements to help the home stand out. Here are a few improvements we advise making if you're considering selling:

First, perform an inspection of the exterior of your house. A recent post from Cherkas Home Improvement explains the importance of checking your home's exterior before going through any costly repairs:

Spring is here! After a long, cold, wet winter, we’re finally ready for warmer weather and spending more time outdoors. A great way to welcome the warm weather is picking a home improvement project that enhances your home’s outdoor space.

Winter’s wrath can do lasting damage to a property if not immediately taken care of. We can conduct a thorough inspection of your home’s exterior, including the foundation, doors, windows, siding, and roof, and recommend repairs wherever necessary. Via cherkashomeimprovement.com

Winter can cause some damage to your home that you might not have noticed. The exterior of your house is vital for first impressions.

Next is landscaping. A new post from Michael J Wolf discusses why landscaping is a good idea during spring.


If you are going for curb appeal, landscaping plays a huge factor. Now that winter is over, it’s time to prune your trees to get them ready to grow fresh new leaves for spring and prevent any broken branches from falling on your home. Trimming your trees every spring will not only help them grow healthier, it will make your home look better. You will also need to mulch any plants that you have. This will revive the soil and help plants thrive as well as just make them look better. If you have just let your yard go, consider doing a complete landscape renovation. Since we live in San Diego, considering a drought-resistant landscaping design will make your home more appealing and give you a beautiful yard that won’t require too much upkeep from you.
While you certainly can go all out on your yard, there's only so much effect it will have. Trim your trees and take care of your plants, but going all out may do more harm than good.

Window replacement can pay off in the long run.

Lastly, clean (or replace) your windows. A recent post from Orion Home Improvements shares why windows might be a good area to work on:


For homeowners, the start of spring not only signals good weather and the blooming of flowers. It’s also the most appropriate time to push through with planned home improvement projects, especially with the warm weather just around the corner. Make the most out of this season with these projects that will surely amp up your home’s exterior.

Are your windows still in pristine condition? Spring means being able to open your windows to let as much natural light and fresh air as possible into your home. So, if your current windows are preventing you from experiencing those simple joys, it’s high time to have them replaced.

If you plan on selling your home in the future, installing new windows can also boost its value. We carry a wide variety of replacement windows, and we’re more than willing to help you find the type that suits your style and budget.

Fort McMurray springs can get pretty windy, and summer rainstorms can get messy. New windows can reassure buyers that they won't have to deal with potential headaches.
