The freezing temperatures and erratic weather keep most Michiganders inside throughout the winter. It’s no wonder that so many people decide to start a home improvement project in the winter. If you’re having trouble deciding which winter home improvement project is right for you, the pros at S&S Property Preservation put together a list of the best winter home improvement projects to start this year.
Top 5 Winter Home Improvement Projects for Michiganders
Upgrade Your Siding
One of the biggest reasons for a drafty house is poor siding. Unfortunately, It’s only during the brutal winter that we start to notice the draft. The good news is that you can upgrade your siding, even in the winter. Many Michiganders boost their home’s energy efficiency in the winter by upgrading their siding.
Here’s a pro tip: some siding materials are more difficult to work with in the winter. Vinyl siding can become brittle in freezing temperatures, that’s why it’s essential to choose the right company to work with. S&S Property Preservation has an incredibly professional crew who happen to be experts with vinyl siding in any season.
Benefits of Updating Your Siding This Winter Include:
One of the easiest and least expensive winter home improvement projects is painting. Whether it’s just one room or the entire interior of the house, painting is both inexpensive and satisfying. There’s nothing better than the feel of a freshly painted room. Updating the paint job in your house is the perfect project for homeowners in the winter.
One of the reasons holding people back from updating the paint in their house is that it can be pretty labor intensive. If the idea of taping up a room, mixing up the paint, going up and down ladders, and committing to multiple coats of paint, then it’s a good idea to outsource the project to the professionals. S&S Property Preservation has an excellent paint crew, capable of quickly tackling paint jobs of any size and scope.
Add a Tile Backsplash to Your Kitchen or Bathroom
Another great winter home improvement project for Michigan homeowners is to add a tile backsplash to your kitchen or bathroom. These beautiful additions can change the entire look of a room sometimes. Whether you decide to match your countertops or go for a more unique approach with a pop of color, a tile backsplash may be just the thing you need to complete that room.
While adding a tile backsplash is possible to DIY, having a professional do it is a great way to ensure the job is done correctly and the backsplash is as beautiful as possible. The tile masters here at S&S Property Preservation make it look easy to add a backsplash and they’ve got access to some of the best tile materials on the market.
Upgrade Your Doors and Windows
One of the best things you can do for the energy efficiency of your home is to upgrade your doors and windows. Over time, the seals around your doors and windows degrade. Once the seals become compromised, the energy efficiency of your house starts to plummet. It becomes more difficult to maintain the temperature and humidity, causing the HVAC system to go into overdrive.
By upgrading your doors and windows this winter, you can give your home a much needed boost to its overall energy efficiency. Not only does this help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, but it also boosts your home’s curb appeal and even improves the overall value.
Update the Little Things
A good thing to keep in mind during the winter is that you don’t have to tackle a big project if you don’t want to. There are plenty of different ways to upgrade your home throughout the winter. The key is to focus on the small details.
Some Small Winter Home Improvement Projects Include:
Update your light fixtures.
Rearrange your living areas.
Change out your cabinet hardware.
Update your faucets.
New door handles throughout the house.
Add crown molding to a room.
Give the house a good, deep cleaning.
