    Posted in:

    When it comes to home improvements, temperature and weather can affect the safety and success of a project.  Because of this, some projects are best tackled in warmer weather, whereas others are best tackled in cooler months.  If you are wondering when it is the best time to work on your next home improvement project, here is a helpful guide:

    • Decks and Outdoor Living Spaces – Summer is a great time to improve your outdoor living spaces. Whether you are adding a brand new deck or patio, or you are sprucing up your existing spaces, the summer time is a good time to consider these projects.
    • Siding – If you are in need of brand new siding, the summer is a great time to tackle this project. Our sister company ACC LLC Roofing and Siding can help you give your home a brand new look.
    • Roofing – Roof repairs are best made in warmer months. Again, or sister company ACC LLC can help with your roofing project.
    • Doors and Windows – If you are concerned about heat and air leaking from old windows, summer is a great time to seal up your old windows or to replace them with new windows. It is also a great time to replace doors to freshen up the look of your home.
    • Interior Renovations – With the summer heat and humidity sometimes making outdoor projects a bit of a chore, interior renovations such as kitchens and bathrooms are perfect for summer!

    • Roofing Repairs – Problems with your roof can get even worse when harsh winter weather hits. If your roof is looking a little worse for wear, the fall is a great time to repair or replace the roof so you are ready for the coming winter.  ACC LLC can help with roofing issues.
    • Gutter Replacement – Winter weather can be very hard on gutters, so it is important to make sure that your gutters are in great shape before the harsh weather can damage them further. Fall is a great time to clean, repair, and replace gutters.
    • Window Replacements – The mild fall months are a great time to have your windows replaced.
    • Winter Deck Prep – It is important to prep your deck for winter to ensure that it lasts for a very long time. Beyond covering or putting away deck furniture, this includes sealing and repairing your deck.  Harsh weather can make deck rot and other problems even worse, but with proper maintenance these issues can be dealt with before they become a much bigger problem.

    • Flooring – Winter is a great time to tackle your next flooring project. Whether you are looking to replace your floors with wood, tile, or carpet, new flooring is a great project to tackle during the cold weather months.
    • Kitchen Remodeling – A new kitchen can be great for the ROI of your home, and it is also a great winter restoration project.
    • Bathroom Remodeling – Just like kitchens, bathrooms also make great remodeling projects for winter. They are also great for ROI, and can bring a much needed update into any home.
    • Paint – One of these simplest projects for a dramatic change in a home is a fresh coat of paint on your walls. This is also a great project for the winter to freshen up your space.
    • Insulation – What better time to add new insulation in your home than to do so when it can really help with your energy bills. Adding fresh insulation in attics and basements can help you save on heating bills, while keeping the cold air out of your home!

    • Roofing and Siding – Roofing and siding are important repairs that you can make in the spring. This will help protect your home from severe water damage during summer thunderstorms, and will help prep your home for the coming winter.  Our sister company ACC LLC can help with these projects.
    • Wood Trim Repair – Wooden trim around windows and doors on your home can rot if not properly maintained, and can then fall apart causing air and water leaks into you home. It is important to repair or replace any damaged trim before the problem gets any worse.
    • Gutters – Another great repair to make before thunderstorm season is to your gutters. Malfunctioning gutters can cause water to pool near your foundation causing basement leaks and other serious problems.  It is important to fix old gutter or to replace them before these issues get any worse.
    • Exterior Paint – It is best to paint in months with low humidity. This makes spring an excellent time to paint the exterior of your home.
