Have you ever noticed how the winter elements seem to take a toll on your home? Ugh… it makes sense because it’s cold, windy, sometimes icy or rainy and your home is exposed day and night. The sun can also take its toll.
My husband says spring will be here sometime between the ACC Tournament and the Masters golf tournament. I know I’m ready for spring now. Spring brings the opportunity to complete some home maintenance projects, some necessary and some just to spruce things up. Last year we made the investment to get some new double pane windows to replace the old and leaky storm windows. That investment turned out to make economic sense because the heating and air bills went down noticeably.
This spring it’s going to be our back door – the sun and the weather have finally made the old door look pretty bad. So, we’re planning to replace the 10-year-old double doors with more energy efficient sliding doors. This won’t be inexpensive, but we hope we’re enhancing the value of our biggest asset.
Spring projects can be fun if you plan appropriately – both the project and the costs. We certainly don’t have the extra funds for this project at our fingertips.
