Summer is an ideal time for doing exterior home improvements. The lack of rain means contractors are able to do their work uninterrupted, while the bright summer sun highlights the newest additions to your exterior.
A&A Services Home Improvement, a top roof repair contractor in the state, suggests some exterior improvement projects below.
Bigger and Better Windows
Take full advantage of the summer sun and fresh breeze by installing replacement windows with bigger glass areas. Natural lighting can improve the mood in your rooms and make them feel more spacious, and bigger windows will let in more sunlight.
Summer is also the time when the demand for air conditioning spikes, along with your power bills. You can keep your home cooler while minimizing energy costs by installing new energy-efficient windows.
Speaking of power costs, your doors might be the reason why your heating bills were higher last winter; gaps in your door may have been letting in cold drafts. These same gaps could also be letting in warm air, raising your cooling costs this summer. Minimize your energy expenditures all year ’round by installing more energy-efficient doors.
Asphalt Shingle Roofs
After being exposed to the elements all year long, your roof may have suffered dents, cracks and other damage. While roof repair work usually suffices to take care of the problem, it’d be a shame not to take advantage of the situation to install a more waterproof roof.
Shingle roofs need heat to form a watertight seal, and with heat in abundance during the summer, this season is the best time to install an asphalt shingle roof.
Moisture damage is an issue that plagues all homes, causing paint on the siding to chip and mold and mildew to grow on its surface. With the wet season just a few months away, now is the time to determine if you need new siding, as summer is the best time to install it due to the lack of rain.
