If you are looking to give your home that upgrade you've always wanted to, now is the time to do it. Why wait until the cold winter months when there will be freezing cold winds and overcast skies hampering your efforts? Advertiser.ie has some suggestions that you can take on with the sun at your back.
1. Painting your house
The first port of call when improving your home should be a fresh coat of paint. Outdoor painting can be done in more comfort during the summer when there is less chance of rain. When you are painting inside you can keep the windows open for good ventilation and let the paint dry. If you think the job is too big for you, there are plenty of painting contractors available that you can contact.
2. Paving the driveway
If you've had a gravel driveway for years and want a change, summer is the best time to start paving. In the summer heat, asphalt hardens more slowly, leaving a smoother, flatter surface. Paving doesn't take long to do, and after a few days of curing, your driveway will be ready to use.
3. Install energy efficient windows
Air conditioning during the summer can drive up electricity costs, so installing energy efficient windows can be a good way to save some money. This is best done near the end of summer, so when the cold weather bites you wll be prepared with windows that help keep the heat in and let sunlight through effectively.
4. Spruce up your backyard
Improve your outdoor living experience by planting flowers and adding features to your garden. Warm weather is undoubtedly the best time to plant flowers, when they can acclimatise to their new home. The ground is easier to dig during the summer, so it will be easier to install fountains and irrigation systems.
