Top 5 home improvement tips for Boulder homeowners

June 9, 2020

When your home is your castle, it's natural to feel as though there's nothing you wouldn't do to make it better. At Kenney Bros Construction Co. Inc., we help customers throughout Boulder to improve their living spaces. If the time has come for you to update your home, but you're not sure where to start, here are some of our best home improvement tips.

Upgrade your decking

If you're looking for an easy way to improve your home and your health, you should consider upgrading your decking. Spending time outside is a great way to lower your blood pressure and boost your vitamin D levels. And when you have a deck to sit outside on, you don't have to go far to experience the benefits of the sun's rays.

At Kenney Bros Construction Co. Inc., we can install a new deck or upgrade your existing one. We'll discuss the designs with you so that the end result matches your vision. 

Another benefit that might persuade you to consider upgrading your decking: It's an excellent way to get rid of rot, and it's sometimes necessary when there's a lot of algae growth you cannot treat by yourself.

Make outside spaces accessible

When you have a lot of outdoor space but it isn't as accessible as you would like it to be, it's time to make it so. For example, if you have balconies located on your property's exterior, you may want to add a staircase for easier access.

Other ways to make your property more accessible include installing paving stones. We regularly add paving stones to our customers' outdoor areas. Leveling them off and making them flat is a great way to make them easier for older relatives to access. Additionally, many of our customers use their paving installations to expand the amount of space they have for dining and entertaining.

Install window wells

If you're making the most of your home's basement space, you may want to bring some natural light into it. Installing a window at the basement level is possible, but you'll need a well to ensure they're both safe and effective.

Our window wells allow natural light to make its way through the window you're installing at the basement level. We add stairs to our wells too, which means those who spend time in your basement have an additional escape route in the event of an emergency. We're also happy to discuss other safety features, such as window well covers.

Get a personalized bar

When you love using your home to entertain others, building an indoor or outdoor bar should be high on your list of priorities. Not only will you have somewhere to install your impressive liquor collection, but you'll also have a focal point for entertaining your guests.

If installing a bar is something that appeals to you, we'll make sure it's tasteful and that it matches the rest of your property's decor. Our bars work well in outdoor areas too and can act as the perfect addition to your next barbecue.
