5 Spring Home Improvement Tips

With the arrival of spring, homeowners often feel a surge of motivation to tackle long-awaited home renovation projects. It’s a season when certain tasks are best accomplished before the scorching heat and heavy rains of summer set in. Additionally, spring symbolizes renewal, making it an ideal time to embark on home repairs or upgrades.

In this blog, we’ve highlighted five of the most advantageous spring home improvements to undertake in 2024 before the onset of summer. Most importantly, WoodMart can assist you with all the details, so let’s start a home improvement conversation!

Address Your Siding Woes

Sometimes simply applying a fresh coat of paint isn’t enough for your home maintenance. Siding serves as an additional layer of insulation, increasing the energy efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. Better yet, it acts as a barrier against water and bad weather, safeguarding your home’s structural integrity. New siding will contribute to the resale value of your property. According to the NAR, investing in new fiber cement siding yields an impressive 86% return on investment (ROI), closely followed by vinyl siding at 82%.

While wood siding demands periodic painting and staining, it offers a distinct, appealing aesthetic that few other materials can replicate. Alternatively, synthetic siding options like vinyl and fiber cement require less maintenance and are more budget-friendly, available in an array of colors and textures. Brick and stone veneers present another alternative, albeit at a higher cost. Aluminum siding falls somewhere in between.

If it’s not yet time for a full siding replacement, a pressure wash can effectively eliminate stubborn debris and grime. Make sure you utilize low water pressure and paint-safe cleaners to preserve the siding’s integrity. Additionally, certain types of siding can still be revitalized with a fresh coat of paint. Remarkably, even vinyl siding can now be painted, provided you select acrylic latex paint in a lighter shade than the original vinyl color.

Expand Outdoor Spaces

Expand your existing patio or create a new one to provide more room for outdoor seating and relaxation. Use durable and visually appealing materials such as stamped concrete, natural stone pavers, or composite decking to seamlessly blend with your home’s architecture. WoodMart has all the options you need.

Install pathways or walkways throughout your outdoor space to connect different areas and encourage exploration and everyday usage. Materials such as gravel, pavers, or stepping stones can create visually appealing pathways that complement the rest of your landscape design.

Add an Outdoor Kitchen

Spring is the perfect time to elevate your backyard into a captivating outdoor culinary oasis. Imagine sizzling steaks on a high-performance grill, the aroma wafting through the air as friends and family gather around the inviting space. With sleek countertops glistening in the sunlight, ample space for food prep and serving, and a convenient sink for easy cleanup, every culinary endeavor becomes a delightful experience.

Let’s not forget about the added value to your home. An outdoor kitchen isn’t just a luxury; it’s an investment in your property. Potential buyers will be drawn to the allure of alfresco dining and entertaining, envisioning themselves creating lasting memories in this enchanting outdoor haven. With the growing popularity of outdoor living spaces, a well-appointed outdoor kitchen can significantly enhance the overall appeal and marketability of your home.

Update the Bathroom

Your bathroom is arguably the most essential space in your home. Your family uses it every day for bathing, brushing their teeth, and other daily functions. Your guests also frequent the bathroom for their personal needs, so it’s your duty to make sure this room is in tip-top shape.

Improve Energy Efficiency

Energy-efficient homes are gaining in popularity among homeowners because they’re seen as money-saving havens for future utility bills. By updating various elements of your home to be more energy-efficient, you can boost its value significantly.

Install Energy Efficient Replacement Windows

No one wants to heat or cool a house only to have all the air escape. Replacing windows with energy-efficient replacement windows can help you save an average of 12% on your energy bills. Choose products with high Energy Star ratings and features such as double or triple glazing, low-emissivity coatings, and insulated frames to maximize efficiency and sustainability.

Replace Toilet With Low-Flow Fixtures

Another energy-efficient upgrade you can make is replacing the toilet with low-flow fixtures. This can help to reduce how much water is used with each toilet bowl flush.

Get a New Exterior Door

Replacing an entry door with a steel door is appreciated by homeowners because they are low maintenance, cold- and wind-blocking, and thankfully energy-efficient. This can recoup between 69% and 91% of the resale cost.
