Home Remodeling Advice for Phoenix Snowbirds
It’s that time of year again. This is the season when flocks of snowbirds migrate back to warmer areas like Phoenix. (For those unfamiliar with the term, snowbirds aren’t a rare breed of beautiful winged creature. The term refers to people who spend summers in a four-season or moderate climate area such as the Northeast, and then return to a hotter region like ours when fall and winter temperatures start to hit those colder regions.)
Snowbirds who have decided to flee the increasingly brisk temperatures of the colder areas just in the nick of time may breathe a great sigh of relief when they arrive back in the toasty Arizona atmosphere.
While there are certainly many wonderful things about this area that they will be thrilled to see and experience once again, upon arriving at their local properties, the returning residents may be quickly reminded about some renovation or repair issues they need to address.
This article offers a few quick home improvement tips for returning snowbirds. One very important reminder is to check your roof and ceilings, to ensure your property didn’t suffer any water damage in your absence. Landscaping is another area that is likely to need your attention, especially if you didn’t have someone maintaining your grounds regularly during the past few months.
Looking further ahead, this is a great time to do some advance planning, thinking about projects you can schedule now to have done during your next exodus from peak Arizona heat. It’s often much easier and more convenient to have renovations done while your family isn’t occupying the home, especially if critical areas like the kitchen or bathrooms will be unusable.
