Spring is the best time to tackle home improvements you had to put off during the snowy months. It lets you address any damage that happened in the winter, preventing undiscovered problems going from bad to worse. In today’s post, Knox’s Construction talks about the areas you should prioritize:
Giving your roofing system some attention every spring should be a regular occassion. The roof is often the worst-hit element of the home area during winter. When you look for trouble spots from the ground using binoculars, there’s no guarantee you can find all causes for concern without a trained eye. It’s always best to leave the job to professionals to check the health of your roof, gutters and downspouts.
Apart from diagnosing roofs with alarming issues, experienced pros can identify seemingly harmless red flags. They know where to look, ensuring no potential source of leakage is left undetected. Since they are experts at roof inspection, you can rest assured a professional crew can carry it out efficiently and safely.
The Exterior Walls
If you think you need to retire your home’s exterior cladding material, spring is one of the better times to do it. Depending on your chosen siding replacement material, it can increase your home’s energy efficiency to reduce summer cooling costs and boost curb appeal. You have a wide range of siding materials to choose from, but a low-maintenance product is a great investment because it can eliminate periodic repainting.
Replacing your drafty windows is another way to ready your home for the summer heat. High-performance windows can prevent excessive solar heat gain and trap your conditioned air indoors to maintain your desired temperature. To choose the right products, read the National Fenestration Rating Council label. If you live in Butler County, buy windows with a combination of 0.27 U-factor and any Solar Heat Gain Coefficient value for maximum energy efficiency.
