Here are six spring-time home improvement projects to think about

As spring begins and the weather heats up, it may be time for you to renovate or start an improvement project around your home. Because no home is completely perfect, here are a few home improvement ideas to get it there.

Flooring

Is the white carpet not so clear anymore? Maybe the wooden flooring isn’t quite as young as it used to be. Flooring is one of the first things people notice when they walk into a home. How comfortable will I be walking around this place without my shoes? Check out comparisons between carpeting and flooring to get a good comparison between the two.

Furniture

Where you sit to eat, relax and watch television are all equally important and equally different. Depending on your tastes, you may want a cloth couch and a dinner table with leather seats. You may have accumulated furniture in segments over the years and they don’t quite match your design taste now. It might be time for a total interior redesign.

Ceiling

How many times have you stared at the ceiling of your home and said “I really don’t like that popcorn on the ceiling?” Well, there are a variety of options to switch to. Here are a variety of ceiling options via the San Francisco Chronicle.

Roof

When was the last time your roof tiles have been inspected? Did the rainy El Nino winter expose some leaks in your roofs? Maybe it’s time to look at a re-roofing project to ensure your roof is free of leaks.

HVAC systems

The heating, ventilation and air conditioning system in your home keeps you comfortable. But HVAC systems don’t last forever. If you’re in an older home with an original HVAC system, have it inspected to be sure it remains on peak operation condition. If it’s time to replace your HVAC, check with your local utility companies to see if they provide tax deductions for energy efficient HVAC systems as well as utility loans so you can get the job done.
