Summer is the time for outside projects. There is just something about breathing in that fresh air and soaking up the Vitamin D. (It takes only 10 minutes of being in the rays, and you can do your heart good). The summertime sizzle that we add to our projects helps deliver a long-lasting remodeling or construction impression.

What are the best summertime projects to tackle? We’re listing a few that will not only add curb appeal and outside aesthetics to anyone’s home, but can make domestic dwellings the go-to place for neighborhood parties and family gatherings for years.

Give the House a Trim?

Updating or replacing exterior trim can have a dramatic impact on the look of a home — and it’s such an easy and simple thing to change. In no time at all, a house can shimmer thanks to profiles from Boral, LP SmartSide, or James Hardie.

Raise the Roof

A new roof could be just what is needed to make a home standout. Replace worn-out shingles with something new or try metal roofing. Along with metal roofing, we sell shingles that meet any top of the house make over, including roof trusses from Lumbercraft. Summer is dry and provides the perfect time for installation.

Get a New View

Open a room to the outside with the new bay window you have always wanted or improve your home’s energy efficiency with made-to-order Anderson Windows. Our Linworth location is an Andersen Circle of Excellence/Platinum Dealer and can custom build the perfect window to let light in and get the “ooh’s” and “aah’s” out of friends when they admire the new view.

Deck the backyard

Summer just started, so there is still time to build the deck of your dreams and have it ready for an end-of-season celebration. We carry quality decking that is durable, resistant to mold, mildew, moisture damage, stains, scratches and even fading.
