4 Home Improvements Ideal for Summer

Summer is the best season for home improvements. If you’re planning on getting your home ready for barbecues and other summer activities, roof repair and installation contractor 3JM Exteriors, Inc. recommends the following projects:

4 Home Improvements Ideal for Summer

  1. Window Replacement — Energy-efficient replacement windows minimize heat transfer, which causes heat gain during the summer season and leads to higher energy consumption. If your home still has windows with single-pane glass, it may be costing you in cooling costs during summer. Manufacturers Marvin® and Pella offer ENERGY STAR® replacement windows that will make your home more comfortable this season while also helping you save on cooling costs.

  1. Siding Installation — Thanks to the mostly clear weather, summer is the perfect season to get exterior remodeling projects done. The right siding style, color and type can significantly boost your home’s curb appeal while improving your home’s protection against the elements. Fortunately, there are many options available on the market. Vinyl, aluminum and fiber cement siding are available in various configurations that will work with your budget and requirements.

  1. Roof Repair and Maintenance —  Regular roof repair and maintenance routine is key to keeping your roof in good shape. There’s no better time to get major roofing work done than in the summer season, again, thanks to the weather. A well-maintained roof will give you the peace of mind knowing that you’re prepared for the cold months and beyond.

  1. Entry Door Replacement — The front entry door is like a beacon that guides visitors from the curb. It also forms that critical first impression for first-time visitors. You’re probably expecting visits from friends and family this summer, which makes it a great opportunity to impress them with a new entry door. It also lets you address issues such as dark entryways, with options such as art glass and sidelights. Updated security features also give you the peace of mind to leave the house if it’s your turn to go visiting.
