Home Improvement for Spring is Just Around the Corner Here in the Minneapolis Area

03feb03e5a14The cold temperature has gotten around to reach just about every corner around the world, and this past winter the ‘polar vortex’ was sweeping the nation’s weather forecasts.  Here in the Minneapolis area, this cold weather is more than likely to have caused damage on a lot of homes. Everyone has been feeling the winter wind and snow and ice. You’re probably paying more this year in your electric bills to heat your home as well with the increase in cold drafts.

Now here’s some good news. The calendar says it’s the first day of spring – a good thing, because just about everyone we’ve talked to is ready for some warm weather.  And now is best the time to start considering the different home improvement projects that you’d like to get done as the temperature rises. These projects should help improve the overall efficiency of your home so if the storms come knocking next winter, you’re entirely prepared for what they bring.

Replacement windows can help you battle the leaks and drafts throughout your home. By choosing custom replacement windows, you’re getting a sure fit that will not let the heat out and or  let the cold weather inside your home. Window Outfitters offers perfectly fitting windows for your home. We are also able to install them professionally so that you do not experience problems down the road. We are a certified Minneapolis replacement window company.

Make sure that all of the maintenance items are also taken care of when you go through the list of to-do’s. You want to fix the gutters and downspouts since these are important for the life of your home. Routine landscaping can also be spruced up and made to look better for the spring and summer months when the snow is not going to be hiding the landscaping. Making sure that flooding in your yard doesn’t happen can be beneficial during this time, since the flooding can go down to your basement. It can also invite pests to make a home in the damp areas throughout the yard, and they may eventually make their way into your home.

Get our your ladder, because shingles on the roof and big spots should be looked for. You want to make sure that they are taken care of before something bad happens such as leaks inside the home. Now is a great time to schedule a roof inspection.  And having your old leaky doors replaced by a Minneapolis door company can provide a way for you to help combat the cold leaks into the home and keep the heat in better overall.

As you’re preparing for warmer weather, you might also consider our tips for getting your home ready before the next winter as well.
