Spring is synonymous with home improvement. But you can’t fix everything wrong with your house before summer arrives. You ought to give priority to impactful improvements to accomplish more with less time.
If you ask Howard Roofing & Home Improvements, below are the three exterior projects you should focus on this spring.
It does not take a residential and commercial roofing expert to realize that the structural integrity of the roof is of utmost importance. The roof has the unenviable job of shielding the entire property from the elements in order to keep the interiors dry and in good condition.
If you did not experience any major weather event in winter, you should still make it a habit to get your roof thoroughly inspected in early spring. This way, all potential sources of leakage can be addressed way ahead of the wettest season of the year.
Seamless Gutter Upgrade
Healthy gutters promote proper drainage, which helps keep the rest of the property in superb shape. If you still have old-fashioned sectional gutters, it is about time to switch to a seamless system.
Any commercial and residential roofing contractor knows that the term “seamless” is a misnomer since such a gutter system still has seams at the corners. But there is no doubt that it can dramatically reduce the chances of leakage.
New Vinyl Siding Installation
Trying to live through a wet season with compromised siding panels is a bad idea. It would be an invitation to water damage and pest infestation. Take advantage of spring’s dry weather to see a seven-to-14-day vinyl siding replacement project through with little stress.
However, any experienced roofing and siding specialist admits changing the cladding of a property will inevitably affect the windows. If you are planning to get a new set of windows too in the future, strongly consider getting them installed along with the siding to keep your costs to a minimum.
