If you want to update your home exterior, summer is the best time to make it happen. The warm weather means the construction will go more smoothly, reducing the amount of disruption with which you would have to put up.
Here are the home improvement projects you should focus on this season:
If you put off your roof’s checkup last spring, don’t wait until fall to have it professionally inspected. Whether you have begun to notice signs of leakage or not, you must stay on top of your system’s condition. The proactive maintenance approach allows you to identify problems in their infancy and stay ahead of leaks.
Furthermore, consider getting new gutters and downspouts during summer. This can prepare your home for fall when most of the trees shed their leaves. Having a clogged gutter system increases the chances of ice damming in winter. Although your roof needs proper drainage all year long, it’s imperative to make sure gutters are clog-free before the first snows drop.
Summertime offers optimal conditions for adding a fresh paint to your home. Coats of paint dry faster during warm and dry weather.
If your exterior walls have bigger problems than cosmetic issues, such as severe rot or mold proliferation, replace your entire siding instead. Vinyl siding panels are durable, decay-resistant and aesthetically versatile. They’re available in a vast array of styles and colors so you can enjoy more freedom in re-imagining your home exterior.
Outfitting your home with high-performance windows can boost its thermal insulation, solar heat reflectivity and daylighting. Look for the ENERGY STAR® logo, and read the NFRC (National Fenestration Rating Council Rating) label to buy the most suitable energy-efficient products.
To save on labor, we recommend tackling your siding and window replacement projects at the same time. With our financing options, we can help you properly budget for your home improvements.
