Home Improvement / April 30, 2020
As we head into May, many homeowners are busy finishing up spring to-do lists to prepare for the coming warmer weather. But not all home repairs are just for aesthetics – some are crucial for protecting and maintaining the integrity of your home’s structure in the face of summer’s extreme temperatures. Here are three of the most important home repairs to consider before the dog days of summer:
If your windows took a beating this winter, repairing or replacing them will be important in protecting your home from the coming hot weather. In addition to keeping moisture, bugs and mold out, having new and/or improved windows can significantly lower your home’s energy bills throughout the year.
Summer thunderstorms aren’t uncommon here in Lexington, so you’ll want to make sure your gutters can handle the deluge of water when it comes your way. Busted or clogged gutters can cause serious issues for your landscaping, and can also spell trouble for your foundation if the water isn’t directed properly.
3. Siding Repairs
Finally, siding repairs are crucial for protecting your home from the elements, including rain, moisture and insects. Cracks and warps in your siding can make your home vulnerable to wood rot and other nasty ailments that can plague homes in the summer.
