With spring just around the corner in New England, it is important to ensure that your home’s siding is prepared for the spring weather. Spring in New England brings snowmelt, & a great deal of rain, so it is important to examine your home’s exterior and determine whether it is ready to withstand everything Mother Nature has to offer. If you’re interested in learning more about how to get your home prepared for the spring, keep reading for more information!
Check Your Gutters & Downspouts
The first thing you should do in the spring is check your gutter system. If your gutters are clogged, it will stop your roof from being able to properly drain the snow melt and deal with spring showers, which can be damaging for your home. If your gutters are clogged or overflowing, water can spill over the sides of the system, damaging your fascia boards, siding, or foundation, which will be a far bigger nuisance than cleaning your gutters!
Inspect Your Roof
Your home’s roof is generally regarded is being the most important piece of your home’s exterior, helping to protect your home from the elements, providing it with curb appeal & resale value, and helping to insulate your home. With so much to gain from having well installed and maintained siding, it is important to ensure that yours is kept in good repair. That’s why you should have your roof inspected to ensure that your home will be properly protected through the spring!
Fix Drafty Windows & Doors
Having drafty windows can be just as much of an issue in the summertime as it is in the winter. Your conditioned air could be leaking out of your windows, which could be running up your energy bills! Your doors are no different; if there is a significant gap between your door & threshold, it is likely causing significant energy loss! If you’re interested in reducing your home’s energy costs this summer, check your windows & doors for drafts in order to keep your home as airtight as possible and reduce the strain on your air conditioning system!
