Home Improvement Projects for the Summer

Posted on May 29, 2017

Summer is a favorable season for many home improvement projects. Welcome the last days of summer with productivity and creativity by trying out these home improvement projects!

Spruce Up the Yard

Cool drinks and warm nights with friends or family are better spent in a revamped garden, maybe with a patio set to lounge in. Get into green thumb mode and please Mother Earth with your gardening skills. Put up your own vertical garden to cover up gray and bare walls; add a succulent garden to your lush collection of backyard greens; or even plant a new tree that’ll provide you a cool shade for the sunny days and the summers to come.

You may also want to give kids their own space in the area. You may try to get them involved in creating a play area or even a tipi in the backyard.

Re-finish Outdoor Surfaces

Summer is the best time to stain wood and freshen up exterior surfaces with paint! So, while the sun’s still out, get to staining those fences! Expect that cleaning and repainting your roof will be a bit of a challenge. But hey, nothing’s too difficult when you have friends to help you with! Call them in, get the job done, and have a refreshingly rewarding pitcher of beer right after!

Waterproof Your Home

Especially since rainy season comes right after summer here in the Philippines, it would do your home good to be reinforced against leaks. Schedule an afternoon to go around the house. Guided with a few tips and tricks to waterproofing your home, patch up cracks with your trusted sealants and crack solutions.

Re-do a Room

Have you been aching to get that living room the updated look it deserves? Now would be the best time to do so! Rearrange those furniture pieces according to the minimalist trend, add live florals and colors, or go and have fun by giving your room a fresh new coat!
