Weekend Warrior Projects for the Spring

If you’re an HGTV junkie and love spending your weekends sprucing up your home and yard, you may be looking for projects that can improve the aesthetic look and overall health of your home. 

Being a weekend warrior means that you’re looking for something to improve your home that can be done in a short timeframe such as a weekend or two (or less). Here are a few projects that may satisfy both criteria of being a quick project and transformative. decking

Deck Rehab 

Now that the weather is improving with each day, and the sun sets later, you may be thinking about when you can throw your first outdoor entertaining party. Before you can set that date, you will want to check your deck to be sure it is set to go. 

Deck rehab means checking for splintering wood, areas that need restaining, nails that need pounding down, and loose or damaged boards. 

Spring is a great time to contact our team to power wash, clean, and reseal your deck to get it ready for spring and summer entertaining. Before you consider replacing your deck, call our team to see if we can restore it back to its original splendor. This means we can strip it, replace damaged wood, put on a layer of stain or paint, and weatherproof it so you can enjoy your outdoor entertaining for many more years to come. doorway

Entryway Refresh 

One of the first places that catches the attention of passerbyers and neighbors, is your entryway and front door. Spend a weekend focusing on your front as a way of making a great first impression and sprucing up your house, all at the same time. 

Painting the front door is a perfect place to start. Depending upon the color of the rest of your home’s exterior, you could choose an accent color that makes your front entry pop. One trending color right now in our area is red! The bright, happy color can really make a front door stand out against a white home! 

Add some potted plants to your walkway, clean up the steps with a fresh coat of white or gray paint and your front door has a whole new look. 

As an added pick-me-up install a new light fixture, a modern house number, or a new mailbox just for fun! garage door

Garage Doors and Shutters 

We spend a lot of time talking about color palettes and accent colors for the interior of homes, but did you know that you have several places where an accent color outdoors can make your home look finished and well coordinated? 

Many weekend warriors are choosing to paint their garage doors and shutters, if they have them, in order to coordinate with the color of their front door. These easy changes can be done a little at a time or all in one weekend. The matching or coordinating color scheme can have such a positive effect on your home’s overall look.
