As the sun begins to shine brighter and the days stretch longer, we welcome the arrival of summer. This season is an ideal time to spruce up the exterior of your home, making it not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional and ready to take on the summer heat. Whether it’s a fresh coat of paint on your window frames, installing new doors, or creating a seamless indoor-outdoor connection with sliding doors, summer home improvements can significantly enhance your living space. Let’s dive into some inspiring summer home improvement ideas.

1. Refresh Your Frames: Painting Window and Door Frames

One of the simplest yet most transformative home improvement projects you can undertake this summer is repainting your window and door frames.

Over time, frames can fade, peel, or chip due to exposure to harsh weather conditions.

A fresh coat of paint can not only revive the appearance of your frames but also provide an additional layer of protection against the elements. Choose a colour that complements your home’s exterior for a harmonious look.

2. Install New Windows and Doors for Temperature Regulation

In addition to enhancing your home’s aesthetic appeal, installing new windows and doors can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency. Energy-efficient windows and doors can help maintain a comfortable temperature in your home by reducing heat gain during the summer months. Double-glazed windows, for example, have two sheets of glass with a gap in between, reducing heat transfer. Similarly, energy-efficient doors can help keep your home cool by reducing heat gain.

3. Garden Fencing: A Fresh Look and a Sturdy Barrier

Fencing not only adds a layer of privacy to your property but also defines your outdoor space. However, weather conditions can take a toll on your garden fence over time.

Consider repainting and fixing your garden fence as a part of your summer home improvement project.

Choose a paint that’s specially designed for outdoor use to ensure longevity.

If there are any loose or damaged sections, now is the time to fix them. A well-maintained fence can significantly enhance your home’s kerb appeal.

4. Create an Indoor-Outdoor Living Space with Sliding Doors

As we spend more time at home, having a space that merges the indoors with the outdoors can be incredibly refreshing.

Installing sliding doors is a brilliant way to open up your home to your garden, creating a beautiful and versatile living space.

Sliding doors not only let in more natural light but also provide a seamless transition from your home to your outdoor space. Imagine having a summer meal in your dining room with a wide, unobstructed view of your garden—it’s the perfect way to savour the season.

In conclusion, summer offers the perfect opportunity to undertake home improvement projects that not only beautify your home but also make it more comfortable and efficient. By refreshing your frames, installing energy-efficient windows and doors, fixing up your garden fence, and creating a seamless indoor-outdoor connection with sliding doors, you can revitalise your home and make the most of the summer months.

Happy home improving!

From the first moment when Arthur came round to advise, measure-up and quote for the job we felt we were in good hands. And his team of installers provided the best service. I always think that the best test is if something needs further attention and in this case they returned promptly to fix a small issue and nothing was too much trouble. Our new doors have transformed the back of our house and we highly recommend this company for work of the highest quality. Thank you Arthur and team!

We got our back and front doors replaced by E&A Windows and we couldn't be happier with the job they did. Erez was so helpful as took the time to come to our home to give us a quote, explaining all our options thoroughly and clearly without being pressuring in the slightest. The quality of both doors was fantastic and Adrian’s installation was fast and completed to a very high standard. He was also very helpful. We would highly recommend E&A Windows and will definitely use them again for any future double glazing needs. Thanks so much!

Very professional service! During my initial consultation, I was fortunate enough to deal with the owner of the company. He visited my property and spent a few hours talking me through design options and his recommendations. His recommendations were very insightful and ensured my build looked elegant and modern while retaining the functionality required for an active family of 4. The build process was equally professional with the construction team arriving when they said, treating my property with respect and cleaning up after they finished each day...something not often done by today's tradesmen. I've recommend this company to my parents.

I have just had new windows installed by E&A Windows and I must say I was very impressed. Arthur the owner of the company was so helpful and supportive throughout the process. I don't know much about windows so was skeptical at first, but I felt at ease very quickly. The guys who came to fit the windows (John, Christie and Peter) were absolute legends. They were extremely friendly and so so helpful, and the respect they gave me, my elderly parents and our home was exceptional. They took care of our home as if it was their own. I have never come across such professionals, not only did they do a fantastic job , but they went well beyond, seemed like nothing was impossible. They were with us only for 3 days but my parents were actually sad to see them go. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to fit new windows.
