  • Opening Intro -

    Though there’s always a project to do around the house at all times of the year, there are some home repair projects that are best done during summer when the weather is warm.


These projects are usually outside projects, but there are indoor repairs to see as well. Here are four of the projects that will be easier to perform during summer:

Repair Asphalt

If there are cracks in the asphalt of the driveway, summer is the time to repair them. For small cracks, all that’s needed is for it to be filled with sand followed by a liquid sealant.

If it’s bigger, mix the sand and the sealant, and pack the paste into the crack with a trowel. It’s also a good idea to seal asphalt in the summer. Simply pour it into the area and work it in with a special broom. Two coats are ideal.

Repair the Roof

There are homeowners who are nervous about going up on their roof, so these people should hire roof repair professionals. For people who don’t mind climbing up on their roof, fixing cracks or small holes and replacing worn or broken wooden or asphalt shingles is simple.

Tools include a pry bar, a hammer, roofing cement, a caulking gun, a flat shovel and a putty knife. Summer is a great time for this repair to avoid large wind or rainstorms.

Repair Fences

Fences tend to take a beating during hard winters. Rotted areas where rails and posts meet should be chiseled out and repaired with T-braces, then treated with caulk that resists rot. Then, the brace should be painted to match the color of the fence.

Wobbly fences can be stabilized by 2 x 4 stakes that are painted with a preservative, planted in the ground on either side of the post then bolted together.

Repair Screens and Storm Doors

Screens and storm doors are made for summer, so now is the time to repair them, even though some DIYers have taken care of repairs before it gets truly hot. Patch screens, reinforce corner joints with mending plates, and take out screens and clean them with a garden hose then scrub them with a stiff brush. If screens are rusty, they can be painted.

Door closers should also be lubricated. Make sure all your doors and screens are in good condition before summer hits to avoid any unwanted pests from entering your home.

DIY jobs such as repairing concrete, fences, screens and storm doors and doing some work on the roof are best tackled on a warm day when it’s a little overcast. It’s best to do them early in the season before it becomes ragingly hot and with a helper or two.
