Putting Up Curtains

Buy, Paint and Put up a New Mailbox

Consider buying, painting and putting up a new mailbox. Mailboxes only last a few years because of outdoor weather conditions. Buying a new mailbox every so often is an easy DIY project that will make your house stand out.

Install New Knobs

Have you ever considered installing new knobs to your cabinets? Adding new knobs to your cabinets is an incredibly easy spring home project and it adds a fresh touch to your kitchen and bedroom.

4 Spring Home Projects You Shouldn’t DIY:

Electrical Work

Electrical work is just one of many spring home projects that you shouldn’t do on your own. It can be dangerous if not properly handled, without the proper training you could end up getting shocked or worse. If you need to replace any electrical wires definitely consider hiring an electrician to do the job.

Tree Removal

Regardless of if a large tree came down near your house in a windy storm, or if there’s a dead tree outside your window, it’s best to call the professionals. It’s important to consider the foliage on the tree as well as the height and weight of the tree. If you are not a tree removal expert, then leave it to the professionals to carefully remove the tree from your property.


It’s always wise to call the professional when it comes to anything involving your plumbing. Fixing a leaky pipe may look easy, but it could actually turn into a plumbing nightmare. Calling the professionals is the way to go.  

Installing Large Appliances

Buying new appliances is a great way to add improvements to your home this spring. However, it’s always worth it to hire professionals to help you install these items. What if your new fridge or dishwasher doesn’t quite fit where your old one did? You may need to make minor adjustments to your kitchen to make room for your new appliances. You may also need to slightly reposition the water and electric lines.
