Spring is not only a great time for cleaning, but it is also a popular time for home improvement projects. As the weather starts to get warmer, homeowners all over the U.S. are ready to take on projects that will make their homes more enjoyable or to prepare them for sale. While you might have a laundry list of projects you want to do, prioritizing is important. 

But just what are the best home improvement projects to take on in the spring? Read on because we have some recommendations to help you maximize the value of your investment.

The Best Home Improvement Projects for Spring

Why is spring the best time for home renovations and improvements? Not only is it easier for construction crews to access your property, but many people want to put their homes on the market once summer draws near. That said, some projects make more sense in the spring than during other months.

Landscaping

Spring’s mild weather is ideal for planting and landscaping, allowing plants to establish roots before the summer heat. Most homeowners put about $1,300 to $6,000 into refreshed landscaping. It’s well worth it because, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), most homeowners will realize a 104% return on investment (ROI) in landscape maintenance.

Carpet Cleaning

After a winter of indoor living, spring is the perfect time for a deep carpet cleaning. It removes allergens, dust, and dirt accumulated over the colder months, improving indoor air quality and refreshing the home’s interior. We recommend you have your carpets professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months.

New Siding and Roofing

Installing new siding and roofing in the spring prepares your home for the year’s weather challenges. New siding improves insulation and energy efficiency, while a new roof protects against leaks and damage, ensuring your home is safe and always looks its best.

New Doors

Replacing doors in the spring improves your home’s security, energy efficiency, and curb appeal. New front doors make a strong first impression, and storm doors add a layer of protection against spring and summer storms. While new doors can come with a hefty cost, they pay for themselves over time. Energy.gov suggests that storm doors and windows can reduce heat loss by 25% to 50%, which can save you a big chunk of change in your energy bills.
