Spring has arrived, and it’s the perfect time of the year to take on home-improvement projects. These can be expensive, but it’s possible to save money while still improving your home.
Do a thorough inspection to see how your home’s siding has held up over the winter months. If you find damage, then you can save money by replacing only the damaged section with siding of the same color or painted to match.
When your gutters become overfilled with debris, they can sag, break and cease to function properly. Having your gutters cleaned each spring is costly, but you can save by installing a protective gutter guard.
To keep your home comfortable and save money on your energy bills, check to see if you have the proper amount of insulation for your attic and the underside of your roof decking. Speak with your energy provider about any grants that may be available to help you properly insulate your home.
Various rodents and insects may invade your home and cause problems, but you can prevent serious damage by taking steps to rid yourself of these pests at the first sign of their presence. Both live traps and diatomaceous earth are inexpensive alternatives to professional pest-control services.
It’s common for your deck to show some peeling after a rough winter. It’s an easy fix, and you can save big by power washing and staining it yourself.
