Mid-Year Check In

In January, we wrote about the benefits of a complete overhaul in order to accomplish your home goals in 2018. Well, we are officially halfway through the year, which means it’s time to look back and see what you’ve accomplished!

We understand that even if you intended to take the plunge and begin a complete overhaul of your home, sometimes life gets in the way. Now that it’s summer and the days are longer and kids are out of school, it’s a great time to use your spare hours to begin tasks that you just haven’t been able to tackle yet. Here are a few areas of your home to consider, especially as you spend more time outside during the warmer months:

  1. Your energy costs. Are your energy bills especially high? If you noticed a spike over the winter, but haven’t gotten around to replacing your windows, now is the time. Temperatures are still rising, and the hottest month is yet to come. Whether it’s storm windows, sliding windows or casement windows, the experts at Gerald Jones can get the job done quickly and help your home run efficiently again.
  2. Your backyard. Have you been spending little to no time in your backyard because it just isn’t suitable for fun in the sun? July means the sun is hot and ticks are out, and it is exactly the right time to enjoy the comfort and shade of an outdoor living space.
  3. Repairs. Repairs you didn’t get to at the start of the year are guaranteed to be worse now. Issues with roofing, siding and gutters can lead to even bigger problems, so it’s time to start tackling your list of repairs.
