When most parts of the country welcome the arrival of spring, the North Star State doesn’t expect a respite from severe weather. As winter approaches its end, you should prepare your home for the harsh elements that might compromise your comfort and safety.
From the remodeling professionals at Minnesota’s 1st Choice, here are some of the projects you should tackle:
Having an intact roof is your best defense against the weather’s worst offence. Schedule an inspection with roofing professionals to assess your roofing system’s overall condition. If it’s no longer worth saving, investing in roof replacement goes a long way. Apart from having a fresh set of flashings and brand-new shingles, your project is a great opportunity to restore the structural integrity of the underlying wood deck.
If you’re in the market for GAF products, turn to a roofer with the Master Elite™ designation for flawless installation. Minnesota’s 1st Choice belongs to the top 3% of all roofing contractors that have this distinction.
Replacing your leaky windows can make your rooms more weathertight. Plus, high-performance replacement windows are critical building blocks of your home’s complete thermal enclosure system. If you buy ENERGY STAR–certified products with the right set of ratings, they can help insulate your indoor heat and reduce thermal bridging.
Retiring your broken siding panels does more than just increase your curb appeal; it elevates your home’s ability to withstand the elements. A properly installed siding system keeps the chances of leakage and water damage to a minimum.
Storm Door Addition
In areas that normally experience menacing weather, storm doors are more of a necessity than an option. Apart from weatherproofing patio and entry doors, they contribute to energy efficiency as well.
