Spring Is The Time For Home Improvement Projects

Spring Is The Time For Home Improvement Projects


As winter comes to an end, the spring season invites homeowners to step outside, check out their yards and consider which home improvement projects that they will tackle for themselves. Despite being in the grip of a deep recession, homes need to be maintained and if my personal observations are correct, those packed parking lots at nearby home improvement stores is evidence that many people will be tackling projects themselves over the coming months.

paint canWith this in mind, SayEducate.com will shift its focus during the spring season to include additional tips, tools and news articles to help you plan your home improvement project. We know that some people will be hiring contract professionals to handle at least some of the work, while others will be taking on projects that they’d normally farm out to a service contractor. Money is tight, but the work must be done.

Your Home Improvement Guide

Beginning tomorrow, we’ll share with you important steps you can take to secure financing for those bigger projects, specifically tapping the equity in your homes. We understand that home values have taken a beating over the past year, but quite a few homeowners have built up a sizable amount of equity which when tapped in part can pay for needed repairs and home improvement jobs.

After that, we’ll look at a variety of projects including lawn care, interior and exterior painting, window and door replacement, gardening, attic organizing and improvement, basement remodeling, garage improvement, you name it. We’ll also cover subjects such as decluttering your home (and holding a yard sale to get rid of unneeded stuff or donating these items to charity), outdoor entertaining, creating a child friendly yard, setting aside a pet-friendly area outside, and more.

Including Expert Advice

On occasion, we’ll have an expert share his or her tips and we’ll also point you to sources such as our companion site at Let’s Renovate where you can find remodeling and money saving tips.

Finally, you can handle many projects yourself, so please allow SayEducate.com to be one of your biggest boosters when get down to working on your home.
