Memorial Day weekend has also become the official kick-off to summer barbecues, camping excursions and distant family coming to visit. The three-day weekend is the perfect time to catch up on those chores around the house that have been stacking up the past couple of months. With the end of May, the rainy season in the Pacific Northwest slows down, and it is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the weather. You will want to take advantage of the beautiful weather, holiday sales and the extra day off to get your home ready for another gorgeous summer. You will find everything you need to do just that at Greenwood Hardware!
Here are some home improvement projects you may want to tackle this Memorial Day weekend.
Clean Out the Garage
After a long winter, it is time to go through all the clutter that was tossed into the garage. Tidying up the tools and getting rid of the stuff you don’t need is going to leave you with lots of space. You won’t be embarrassed to open the garage door when the neighbors are out and about. You can find all sorts of organizational tools to help you keep it clean all summer long.
Fix the Lawn Furniture
After a long winter, the lawn furniture may need a little sprucing up. Applying a fresh coat of stain to the wooden furniture or a fresh coat of paint to the metal chairs and tables is one way to make it all look new again. You may need to replace cushions and tighten up wobbly legs as well.
Stain the Deck
It is a big job, but staining the deck will help extend the life of your investment. Applying a fresh coat of stain with a sealant will help prevent it from rotting. It also looks so much nicer!
Clean the Cement
A little power washing and an environmentally safe cleaning product can really make a difference when you clean the driveway and any cement walkways around your house. It brightens everything up, and you won’t have to be embarrassed by those unsightly stains that build up all winter.
Clean the Windows
With the constant rain coming to a halt, it is time to clean the outside of your windows. You want to see all the blooms and the greenery the Pacific Northwest is famous for. For homes with second story windows, extending squeegees are a must.
