Common Summer Home Remodeling Projects

Summer is here, and it’s always a great time to undertake, and complete, home remodeling projects. The days are longer, and the warm weather makes most jobs much more pleasant. You are sure to have guests and visitors, so completing some awesome renovation projects before the fun starts might be a wise idea. What about a half-bath or brand-new deck? Maybe the kitchen needs a refresh. These are common summer home remodeling projects. 

One thing you may want to keep in mind is the return you will receive on your investment or ROI, even if you don’t plan to sell anytime soon. As you do the research on the upgrades and renovations that will bring you the most for your money, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that the perennial chart-toppers are often the cheapest to complete, and projects that many homeowners choose to do during the summer.


Here are a few common summer home remodeling projects:



Install loose-fill fiberglass insulation in the attic space as the days get warmer. This greatly affects those utility bills during the hotter summer weather in a very positive way, translating into savings for you for years to come. 


Universal Design

This remodel choice will outfit your home to meet everyone’s needs, from the very young to the young-at-heart, and will add to your home’s attractiveness with safety features for people who need extra assistance. Your summer visitors will love that you thought of them when remodeling your home. 


First Impressions

Aesthetic projects, such as new siding and doors, refinishing decking or adding a deck, or outdoor kitchen can really bring a whole new level of comfort and class to your home and yard, perfect for the beautiful summer months. You are certain to be entertaining your friends and family, so why not?



Upgrading your landscaping isn’t really a renovation project, but it sure makes your house look fantastic. Consider using drought-tolerant plants, trees, and shrubbery to save water; this kind of greenery maintains its look all summer long, too.
