Many people see the new year as a time to improve their lives. It’s also a great time to freshen up your home with one or more home improvements. Here are a few to consider.
Vinyl Siding Replacement
One of the best qualities of modern vinyl siding is that you can get the most out of it by sticking to a strict maintenance routine. But even the most durable siding will need to be replaced, and, if your siding looks like it’s seen better days, replace it this year. In addition to improving your home’s protection against the elements, new siding can also help change how your home looks, with a new style or color palette.
Upgrade Your Gutters
Gutters perform one small yet crucial task: they prevent rainwater from getting into areas where excess moisture can damage the house foundations or lead to the house settling. If you clean and maintain your own gutters, you know how difficult it can be to scoop out all the leaves, debris and dirt. Fortunately, gutters companies like us offer seamless gutters, which can dramatically reduce required maintenance. Pair it with quality gutter covers, and you can virtually forget about cleaning your gutters.
Install New Windows
Replace your old, drafty windows with new, energy-efficient ones. They make your home more comfortable by reducing air leaks, which results in consistent indoor temperatures. More importantly, your HVAC system won’t have to compensate for the temperature difference, which can help you save on your heating and cooling costs.
If you’ve been dealing with roofing leaks for quite some time, you might as well plan for a new roof this year. Getting a new roof early in the year prepares your home for the weather extremes of the seasons that follow. A new roof with good warranty coverage may even decrease your homeowners’ insurance premiums.
