More Daylight Means Outdoor Updates
This Sunday, Americans will spring forward once again when they turn their clocks ahead one hour for daylight savings time.
Daylight savings time officially begins at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 8 (consider yourself reminded). While the bad news is you’ll lose an hour of sleep that night, the good news is, you’ll gain an extra hour of sunlight in the evenings.
In Orange County, that means you’ll be able to enjoy the light of day until close to 7 p.m. when the sun sets. That means now is the time to get your outdoor space in ship shape.
Whether you like to spend the spring and summer months reclining in a lounge chair on your deck, napping in a hammock in the backyard, or cozying up with a good book on the lawn, here are just a few things you can do to get your outdoor space up to par.
Patio Furniture Repair
If your backyard and deck space has been in hibernation over the winter months, you’re not alone. But with spring on the horizon it’s a great time to dig out your patio furniture and give it a good hard look. Is your patio furniture in need of repair or showing its age?
Whether you have vinyl, metal or fabric patio furniture, it can most likely be repaired at a fraction of the cost of buying new. From a fresh new color of powder coating, to re-strapping vinyl, to fixing sling fabrics on outdoor chairs, patio furniture repair is an easy and cost-effective fix. Enlisting the help of a local handyman is also a great way to save money and minimize your workload for your outdoor projects.
More light also means more chances to notice that your porch or deck may not be looking as new as it used to. A great way to restore it back to the look of new wood is by pressure washing. Pressure washing can help eliminate any dirt, grime and mold that may have settled into the fibers of the wood over the years to make it look gray and dingy.
Pressure washing services are just one of the many services that an Orange County handyman can provide for your home improvement needs, and it can often be completed in less than a day.
Screen Door Installation
Since you will be spending so much time going in and out of your home to enjoy your newly refreshed outdoor space in the months to come, it’s always a good idea to have a screen door installed to keep out bugs, leaves and anything else that an unexpected Santa Ana wind may choose to blow in. If you already have a screen door, be sure to check it for rips and tears. Screen door repair is another easy home improvement project that your friendly Orange County handyman can take care of for you.
