Summer Home Improvement

Front Door Replacement

Exterior Upgrades Take Center Stage

Summer weather always seems to prompt the need to improve curb appeal for your home. The warmer weather provides the perfect conditions for most renovations, no matter if they are in or around the house. Smaller projects are ideal for fairweather months, such as, upgrading your home’s entryway, or ensuring your new home office has adequate ventilation! 

Here are some renovations to consider this summer:


During the winter, old, damp windows are a major source of heat loss. As a result, heating and cooling expenses go up and indoor comfort goes down. If last year’s usual routine of sealing around the windows didn’t do much to keep the extreme temperatures out, it’s definitely time to hire a professional to replace the windows.

Front Door

Replacing your front door will boost the value of your property, improve its security, and even help you save money on energy. Another common purpose for replacement is to update old or worn styles. It’s an exterior focal point with great impact, so replacing it with a new style will improve the entire look and feel of your home. A new front door is one of the top-ranking home improvements on the Cost vs. Value Report.

Backyard Improvements

Consider using the summer months to plant new trees in strategic locations that will provide you with plenty of natural shade in the future. In the meantime, look at other options for obtaining shade. Covered porches, umbrellas, and pergolas all contribute to the creation of shaded exterior spaces.

Upgrade Your Patio Seating

Swing sofas are a great combination of benches and hammocks. They are not only relaxing and comfy, but they provide valuable extra seating for entertaining. 

Optimize Lighting

To enjoy your backyard after the sun goes down, make sure it’s lit up with integrated lighting in the steps and outdoor sconces. There’s nothing quite like the twinkle of outdoor lighting on a cool summer night.
