6 Home Improvement Tips to Get You Through the Dog Days of Summer

It’s too hot to do ANYTHING! Your remodels are all finished, flowers are planted and kids are waiting to go back to school. Here are some small projects to keep you busy during the dog days of summer:


Reseal or Revamp Your Windows

When the sweltering heat of July hits, simply looking outside is often better than being outside. Resealing your windows prevents leakage of cool air, and ensures that your home is protected from frequent summer storms. Replacing your windows with a low emissivity model is a simple way to change up your home’s aesthetic, and reduce the cost of energy bills.


Replace Your Shower Heads

Through all the pool parties, sweaty summer sports practices, and long days playing outside, your showers get a lot of use in the summer. Replacing your shower heads with a low flow option efficiently uses far less water, while still maintaining a satisfying shower.


Repaint Your Walls

From dingy staining and buildup, to dated color choices, a fresh coat of paint can completely transform a space. Open up a room with a bright color choice, or choose a dark earth tone to cozy up a space for fall.


Restore Your Deck

Whether you’re grilling out, or enjoying drinks during warm evenings, summertime is when you get the most use out of your deck. If yours is starting to dull, staining and sealing your deck is a relatively simple process that packs a big punch.


Rejuvenate Your Hardwood Floors

Affordable and simple, cleaning and resealing your hardwood floors gives your hardwood floors a new life without replacing them. Many cleaning kits can leave your floors with a glossy, new-looking finish in a short amount of time.


Redecorate Your Laundry Room

When it comes to home improvement, it’s easy to put your laundry room on the back burner—after all, it isn’t the most exciting space in your home. Still, an organized, attractive laundry can make your weekly load a little less mundane. Add open shelving and built-in drying racks to add function and style to your space.
