Summertime Spruce Up
The warm weather often drags homeowners to the beach or away on vacation, but what many people forget is that it is also the best time to do home renovations. As the dreary, damp winter weathering on our decks, roofs, and pathways show, a little loving can go a long way.
Jim Perkins, Founder & President of FairTradeWorks, a Residential and Commercial Construction Company in Vancouver, says that “even during our safe distancing summer, there a number of simple and cost effective renovations or improvements that homeowners can have done while they not only reside at their homes but also while they are at the beach enjoying some summertime sun.”
1. Window Replacement
You felt the drafts and watched the condensation collect on your old windows over the cold winter months and now is the perfect time to pick out new energy efficient panes that will not only save you money nextwinter but will also allow you to enjoy the latest architectural improvements.

Let the light in with window walls, new transoms by your front entry or add new dormer windows to add more character to the facade of your home. Windows not only control the light of your home but can be the key to bridging indoor and outdoor spaces. If you have a view, you want to feel as though you are a part of it while enjoying a meal in your kitchen. Imagine a beautiful bay window in your bedroom allowing the views of the skyline in, as the sun rises.
As a Residential and Commercial Construction Company in Vancouver, FairTradeWorks has connections to the best vendors in the region that not only offer the excellent quality but also great value.
2. Exterior Enhancement
It’s hard to believe sometimes that mother nature’s winter wrath can wreak so much havoc on our houses and yards.
