8 Spring Home Improvement Projects That Will Save You Money
  1. Update rain gutters: clogged gutters mean damage under roof tiles and along the foundation from improper drainage.  Clean them out often to prevent backups.
  2. New front doors and windows: a new entryway adds curb appeal, and energy efficient windows lower your heating and cooling bills.
  3. Re-caulk windows and doors: If you cannot afford to replace doors and windows, re-caulking will save hundreds of dollars in lost heat and air.  Caulk can harden, crack and shrink.
  4. Inspect and Repair the roof: check for ice, hail and water damage from winter.  Repairing minor damage now can save water damage later down the road.
  5. Schedule routine heating, ventilation and air conditioning maintenance: routine maintenance costs much less than emergencies down the road.
  6. Clean the dryer vent and check the dryer hose: a lint-filled dryer vent is not only not energy efficient but it is also a fire hazard.  The dryer lint can build up in the hose even if you clean out the lint trap after every load.
  7. Check the washing machine hoses: Washing machine hoses can crack over time, causing water damage, mold and more before being noticed.
  8. Install a new mailbox: A new mailbox not only adds curb-appeal, it can create a clean and welcoming look to the entrance.
