5 Ways to Get Your Home Ready for Spring

We may still be in a season of colder weather, but that's going to change before you know it. Soon, grass will be growing, flowers will be blooming, and groundhogs everywhere will (hopefully) not be seeing any signs of their shadows.

If you're going to get your home ready for spring, the time to do it is now. If you wait, you'll be scrambling to get things done and it may be difficult to hire professional help, as every other homeowner will be wanting services. Here are five ways to get your home ready for spring.

1. Inspect and Maintain Your Exterior

Spring is the ideal time to inspect the exterior of your home after the harsh winter months. Check for any damage to the roof, siding or gutters caused by snow or ice. Ensure proper drainage to avoid water buildup, as repairing any damage now can prevent further issues when spring showers arrive. Furthermore, it's a good time to decide if you need a new front door or another exterior improvement.

2. Revitalize Your Windows and Outdoor Areas

Some windows are beyond spring cleaning. If your windows are permanently damaged, worn or smudged, it might be time to replace them. Or, if you want to get ahead of energy efficiency for the warmer months, energy-efficient window replacements are worth considering. In addition to your windows, clean outdoor furniture, power wash decks or patios and inspect fencing or decking for repairs. Consider adding fresh plants or flowers to your garden beds or pots to infuse color and life into your outdoor oasis.

3. Service Your HVAC System

As the weather warms up, your HVAC system will transition from heating to cooling. Schedule a maintenance check to ensure your air conditioning is ready for the warmer days ahead. Changing air filters and servicing the system will help maintain optimal indoor air quality and efficiency. Insulation replacement is another idea worth considering, as it can have a big impact on your home's overall energy efficiency as well and allow more of spring's natural light indoors.

4. Refresh Your Bathroom

Welcome the vibrancy of spring indoors by refreshing or renovating interior spaces like your bathroom. Consider a thorough spring cleaning and swap out your old tub for a new freestanding tub, walk-in tub or tub/shower combo. Adding touches of greenery or floral accents can also infuse a fresh, springtime feel into your bathroom or other interior spaces. You want your home to be a relaxing oasis inside and out.

5. Upgrade Your Entryway

Again, you can enhance your home's curb appeal by upgrading your front door. A new, modern door can transform the look of your home, adding both style and security. Consider options that complement the season, such as doors with glass inserts to invite more natural light or vibrant colors that resonate with the spirit of spring. Additional home decor updates to your entryway can make a great first impression for any visitors.
