A sunny Florida summer is right around the corner. Is your home ready? In this blog, the Hollywood contractors at The Home People will show you the best home renovations to get done now so you can enjoy them during the summer season.
Decks and Porches
The weather in Hollywood Beach is getting better by the day—it’s time to sip on some cold beverages and work on that tan you’ve never had. But do you really want to brave the crowded Florida beaches and deal with screaming children, a lack of parking, and native stingrays?
Your need a spacious and private deck for the most thorough enjoyment of the beautiful weather—something that expands the amount of livable space on your property and allows you to entertain your family and friends (or not).
The Home People have experience building decks and porches, whether you need a tiny front porch or something a bit more “decked” out for your backyard space. With your ideas and our expertise, we’ll give you additional outdoor space that you can enjoy for summers to come.
Sometimes, it’s the not-so-sexy renovations that have the biggest impact on your home’s value. While replacing your home’s windows isn’t as exciting as a new kitchen or bathroom, the project can net you a healthy ROI and improve your home’s energy efficiency.
According to the US Department of Energy (DOE), replacing your windows with Energy Star® certified ones can save you up to 15 percent on your energy bill every year (which could be in the ballpark of $500-$800). Plus, when the Florida summer gets extra sunny and swampy, your new windows will keep the greenhouse effect at bay, and ensure your HVAC system is working at maximum efficiency. Looks like replacing your windows is a “cooler” investment than you thought.
A Room Addition
It can be easy to outgrow your home, especially if you have kids taking up more and more space and they grow older. But instead of moving into a larger home, why not add onto the home you already have?
Not enough space to spread out and relax in your home? Add on a family room. Not enough bedrooms for your growing family? Let your kids take the old bedrooms, and build yourself an incredible master suite. No matter your needs, an addition is a great way to improve the value of your home and add on useful space to make your home for enjoyable for everyone.
A New Coat of Paint
Sometimes, all it takes to make your home amazing is a new coat of paint. Whether it’s a fresh color for your kitchen, or a complete repaint of your home’s exterior, new paint is extremely cost effective, and gives your home an instant boost in aesthetic appeal—and while a new coat of paint is in the realm of DIY possibility, wouldn’t you rather put your home in the hands of the professionals?
