6 Weekend Home Improvement Tasks You Can and Should Outsource

By Hannah Selinger

As a mom, I can tell you this: Weekend time is precious. But as a homeowner, weekends are also the most convenient time for household maintenance. My husband regularly composes a list of fixes and improvements that just have to get done on the weekends, and those projects cut into the time we get to spend together as a family.

But what if you could get everything accomplished and still have that golden family time? I'm here to tell you that it is possible to improve your home without sacrificing bonding time with the fam — and that you don't have to break the bank to do it. In partnership with The Home Depot Home Services, here are six necessary home improvement projects that you should really leave to the experts so they get done right and so you can free your weekends up for activities that really matter to you and your family.

New Heating and Cooling Systems


If you're looking to install, upgrade, or even repair your HVAC system, make sure to enlist licensed, insured, and background-checked installers. Since this is a big job, The Home Depot Home Services offers this added peace of mind: affordable financing options that range from The Home Depot Consumer Credit Card to The Home Depot Project Loan.

Shed Installation


Adding a shed to our home has really changed our lives and cut into our accumulating basement clutter. But did I want my husband to dedicate an entire weekend to setting ours up? Definitely not. The Home Depot Home Services' shed design tool can help you design a custom shed that meets your particular needs. Once you've committed to a shed, local installers will set it up for you. No fuss, no muss, no weekend project.

Garage Door Installation and Repair


Garage door and opener repair can be complicated, so this is definitely a task you should outsource. Call a repair professional to your home to inspect your garage and make specific recommendations. And, there's an added bonus: Repair professionals can often fix the issue during the consultation visit. Talk about a time-saver!

Water Heaters


When it comes to water heaters, don't get left out in the cold. You can get help with new water heater installation, tankless water heater installation, and water heater repair. Water heater purchases are even guaranteed with a 1-year parts and labor warranty, for your peace of mind. Installation can take place the same day of ordering, as long as you request weekday service before noon and live within 30 miles of The Home Depot. That means your Saturday is all yours to enjoy!

Closet Installation


You might not be getting the most you can out of your closet if it's not designed for your specific needs. Arrange a meeting with a closet consultant who can help you create the best storage solutions for you and your belongings so you're not constantly rifling through your drawers and hangers to find your favorite outfits. After the consultation, an installer will come to enact your organization plan. Say goodbye to chaos and hello to a little more time on your hands.

Flooring Installation

Have you been planning on installing flooring in the basement for the past few years but just haven't gotten to it yet? Flooring installation can be an all-consuming project. The Home Depot Home Services team can help you install carpet, hardwood, laminate, or vinyl flooring in any room of your house. And The Home Depot carries a wide selection of flooring brands, styles, and colors, meaning that you can really decide what look is best for you and your home. And just think about how much fun you'll have in that newly floored basement during all those free weekends you'll now have!
