Cheat Sheet for Warm Weather Home Improvements
Get your pencils out, because warm weather has finally arrived and it’s time to put together that home improvement list you’ve been waiting to tackle!
Homeowners know each year offers new opportunities to make those long awaited updates every home requires, and Dale’s Remodeling wants to help you get those tasks underway with our “Cheat Sheet for Warm Weather Home Improvements.”
Upgrade Your Windows
Bring safety, comfort and light into your home by replacing old windows that have withstood harsh weather and extreme temperatures for years. Installing new windows will ensure you have secure locks at vulnerable entry points and un-compromised seals will prevent your heat and air-conditioning from escaping, all while letting the sun shine in! Upgrading your windows is also one of the most common ways to earn cash incentives through Energy Trust of Oregon.
Get Eco Friendly
We’re all striving to go green, both for the financial and environmental benefits, and you can begin with a simple switch to LED lights. You’ll be able to create dramatic effects in every room with ambient, accent, and task lighting, and save money at the same time!
Utilize Unused Spaces
Looking for more storage space, a place to install a fireplace, or maybe add a second bed for guests? Re-imagine a space to give it a new purpose in your home. Look for under utilized spaces, such as empty corners or that empty space under your stairs, and you’ll be amazed at how many possibilities you’ll find within your existing walls.
Transform with Universal Design
Universal design is a great option for people who wish to stay in their homes as they mature. Upgrades throughout the home, such as bathroom handrails, can lend a hand to those with physical limitations and ensure they will be living in a safe and beautiful home for a long time.
Install Low Maintenance Decks
Don’t let maintaining your porch or patio keep you from a relaxing summer day!
Dale’s offers two lines of low-maintenance decking materials and both offer a wide selection of great colors and textures that won’t crack, warp or strip away.
Refresh Your Home’s Exterior
An ounce of prevention equals a pound of cure and, after the harsh winter we’ve experienced in the Mid-Willamette Valley, it’s quite possible the exterior of our home needs a bit of tender loving care. Take a thorough look at your home’s exterior and note where paint has peeled away, if shingles have come loose, and if your gutter and drains are clear and secure to the building.
