How To Prepare Your Home For Summer
Preparing your home for summer is one of the most important things a family can do to preserve their home’s longevity. From ensuring siding is in good repair to finding a way to keep landscaping and grass alive in the scorching heat, it is no small feat. FOr all of your exterior renovation and replacement needs, or to simply inquire as to the best practices to protect your home from the summer weather, call Hatch Homes today for a free consultation!
Replace Your Windows
While this may seem drastic at first, outdated windows are some of the biggest culprits in many of the summertime woes associated with being a homeowner. With higher energy bills, unpredictable internal humidity, and an ever-changing number on the thermostat, your home’s efficiency and insulation are paramount in ensuring a comfortable and thrifty summer.
By replacing old or damaged windows, your home’s insulating shield will be free from any potentially detrimental gaps, allowing your family to enjoy the cool AC with the peace of mind that you won’t be throwing money out the window on the energy bill at the end of the month.
Ensure Your Siding Is In Good Repair
Not to be an alarmist, but the summer offers some of the calendar year’s highest fire risks. From intermittent rain to arid months and everything in between, it can be tough to tell when it is safe to have a classic summer bonfire or enjoy the 4th of July fireworks. While nothing can provide perfect protection from the risk of fire, James Hardie Fiber Cement is revered throughout the country for its fire-resistant nature and durability.
Ensuring your siding is intact and in good repair greatly increases the protection of your home from elements and threats of all kinds, including infestation!
Check Your Roof
Every Carolinian knows the summer months bring rain and lots of it. One of the worst things that can happen is walking into a back room only to discover that dreaded drip that has gone unnoticed for days or even weeks. From damage to floors and much worse, a leaky roof is no laughing matter.
Call Hatch Homes for a transparent and simple inspection to ensure your roof is ready for the rainy season. Unlike other contractors, we empower our homeowners with straightforward answers and simple to understand conversation.
