Though it can be tempting to spend the long weekend relaxing, it’s also the perfect time to get things done. This weekend, take advantage of that extra day off and start planning these 6 home improvement projects.
1. Bathroom Renovation
Before you renovate your bathroom, you’ll want to do a bit of research into everything from designs to how to find the right expert for the job. If you’re looking for design inspiration, check out our favourite 2020 bathroom trends. You should also take the time to research pros and connect with a few you like. For reference, here’s what you should always look for in a bathroom renovation company. After you have a better idea about what needs to be done, consult HomeStars to find the right pro for the job.
2. Research and Book Roof Work
Repairing or replacing your roof is a big project and an even bigger investment. As is the case when making any big decision, it’s important you take your time and do your research. A three day weekend is the perfect opportunity to research and book consultations with a few reputable roofing companies in your area. Using HomeStars, this process will be simple and relatively quick, letting you get back to weekend fun in no time at all.
3. Duct Cleaning
This is one of the most important annual cleaning tasks, which makes it a great project to book over the long weekend. Regular duct cleaning ensures that the air circulating throughout your home remains clear of allergens, and can even reduce your monthly energy bills. It’s important that your duct system is operating efficiently at all times, so don’t delay in contacting a duct cleaning specialist to take care of this important task.
4. Cleaning Services
Speaking of seasonal cleaning, if you haven’t already gotten around to giving your home a good once over with the mop and broom, consider booking cleaning service.
It’s important that the outside of your home is just as clean as the inside. Two tasks that you can plan to tick off in a single weekend are having your gutters cleaned and your windows washed. These quick projects will take just a single afternoon and are relatively unintrusive. While you will likely need two separate pros to complete these jobs, you can find both on HomeStars.
5. Handyman Services
Whether it’s changing your lightbulbs or fixing a leaky faucet, handymen can take care of all sorts of small projects. This weekend is the perfect time to make note of your home’s quirks that have been driving you nuts for months. Decide which you can safely do yourself, and then schedule a visit from a handyman.
Most major projects (including gardening, deck or fence installation, driveway work, and hardscaping) will require a lot of research, planning and prep work before they can be completed. Consult with a pro over the long weekend to ensure your project is ready to go when the time is right.
With the help of a home service pro, you can get any number of these projects started without a ton of hard work. Head to HomeStars.com now to get a head start on any or all of these projects.
