Home Improvement Projects to get done before Summer is Out

Autumn is just around the corner and there are plenty of easy ways to improve your home while the weather is still favourable. Sometimes all you need to do is invest some time, a bit of money, and an amount of effort to make the house of your dreams! In this article you will find some ideas on how to improve your home before summer is officially out.


Tree planting

Trees are the lungs of our planet and planting a tree is a rewarding experience and a great way to make a positive impact on the environment. What is more, planting some trees will make your garden, and house façade, look amazing all year round!

The end of summer and beginning of autumn is generally considered the best time of year to plant new trees. More specifically, late August, September and October are the best months for this plan. Of course, it all depends on when it actually feels like autumn; in the UK, this time is right about now! Hot summer days are gone but the ground isn’t frozen yet, so you have the ideal conditions to start your gardening project.


Power wash your house

The end of summer is a convenient time to consider power washing your home. It will make sure that your siding is free of dirt and mould and get your house nice and clean heading into the new season.

This project is generally not too expensive, and you can do it by yourself although using a professional is recommended as they will know which power settings to use for your home. If you decide to do this yourself, do some research beforehand and be careful as the wrong settings could harm the paint on your home.


Repaint your home’s exterior

If you’re planning on repainting your house’s exterior, now is the perfect time to do it. A little paint could go a long way in transforming your house façade and adding significant kerb appeal. The mild weather will let the paint cure properly and make it last longer.

The best part of painting is that, out of all the DIY projects, it’s the easiest one to correct if you make any mistakes. What is more, it can really make a huge change on the overall look of your home, and it’s really not that expensive if you do it yourself.


Install bifolding doors


While aluminium bifolding doors are a great asset for your home during summer, if you haven’t gotten around to adding these to your home, you shouldn’t leave it to next summer. Instead, consider installing them now as they are guaranteed to provide a few fantastic benefits for you and your family to enjoy all year round!

Winter months still provide wonderful views – which you can keep on appreciating through bifold doors. Moreover, glass doors allow you to exploit all of the sunlight’s warmth during colder months.
