Home Improvement Projects to Do this Summer

When the snow clears and the temperatures warm up, Chicago residents start thinking about their summertime home improvement projects. Summer is the perfect time to make those changes you’ve been waiting to make in your home, and with dumpster rentals and recycling from Brackenbox, it’s easy to manage your to-do list. Here are some of the projects that are just right for this summer.

Ditch the Old Garage

If you have a garage that has seen better days and want to build a new one from scratch, or if you want to claim the space your garage is taking up for something else, summer is a good time to demolish your structure. Before your garage demolition starts, find out what permits are required in your area and make sure all of the utilities that feed your garage are turned off. You will also need to ensure you have a dumpster onsite and a plan for waste removal.

Replace Your Roof

Don’t wait for wintertime to deal with an old roof, as snow could cause a weakened structure to cave in. Summertime is a good time to replace your roof before winter weather strikes. You will need a dumpster to get rid of the pieces of your old roof. Don’t forget to make sure the recyclable parts are separated so that they can be reused.

Install New Windows

If you’ve been considering new windows, summertime is a good season to get the job done. As with roofing, don’t forget to consider which parts of your old windows belong in the dumpster and which can be recycled. Installing new, efficient windows in the summer means that you will be able to enjoy the energy savings when you start running your heat in the winter.
