Spring Home Improvement Fever

The snow has melted, the sun is shining and you don’t need to put on numerous layers to head outdoors. For homeowners, this time of year means it’s time time to get moving on those home improvement projects!

Looking for inspiration, best practices and useful tips? What better place to find ideas for landscaping, DIY projects and decorating than the annual Olean Home and Garden Show, happening this weekend at the William O. Smith Recreation Center in Olean.

Many area hardware stores are offering DIY workshops, which can take some of the guesswork out of projects. Do some research online to find one that might make tackling your special project a little more manageable.

Now’s also a great time to check out the latest and greatest selections that home improvement stores have to offer. Springville Door and Window will be holding its annual open house on Saturday, April 18, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with special pricing on everything from doors and windows to awnings.

Whether you’re thinking of redecorating a room, building a deck, adding that water feature in the backyard, or preparing your gardens for planting, ‘tis the season to dive into projects, big or small! For more information, see our Home & Garden section on page 11.
