The weather is getting warmer, and many homeowners are thinking about home improvement. Spring is an excellent time for many projects since you are not as affected by the weather as in the winter or the upcoming summer. Meanwhile, the results can last longer. Let’s take a look at the most important spring home improvement projects.

  1. Window Cleaning

A spring window cleaning is an absolute must –do for any homeowner unless you had them cleaned recently. Ideally, windows in residential homes should be washed twice a year, in the spring and the fall. Clean windows immediately improve the curb appeal of your house and make it appear clean and cozy from the inside. Cleaning windows on your own may be dangerous since it involves height access. It’s better to hire professional window cleaners for the task.

  1. Roof Repair

The condition of your roof dictates the safety and integrity of your house. So even if you haven’t noticed any leaks this winter, you should still check the roof for damages. Winters in New York are full of such unfortunate weather elements as snowstorms and strong winds. They can make the roof suffer. Spring is an excellent time to do the repairs before the weather becomes too hot.

  1. Landscape Improvements

Take the opportunity to plant new plants. If you are not a big fan of watering and weeding, you can opt for low maintenance options. Whatever you plant in the spring is likely to grow quickly and help you enjoy a beautiful backyard all summer long.

Besides plants, you may want to consider stepping stones, small fountains or birdbaths. Consider choosing new outdoor furniture as well.

  1. Check Lawn Equipment

Lawnmowers have an unfortunate habit of breaking down when you expect it the least. This is especially common for the machines, which weren’t stored properly. Take the time to check if your lawnmower is in working condition.

  1. Order AC Maintenance

Spring will turn into summer before you know it.  Make sure your AC units are working properly so the heat doesn’t catch you unawares. Order an AC maintenance service to calibrate your thermostat, check electrical connections, lubricate moving parts, change filters, and much more. Your AC system requires regular maintenance. Spring is an excellent time to get it done. The time has come to get ready for the summer while enjoying an improved living space.
