Summer will be here before you know it, and just like you work on your exterior for summer, it’s important to not neglect your home’s exterior. When it comes to getting your home ready for the upcoming season, there’s a healthy mix of small and big projects you can tackle that make a big difference in your home. The experts at Glick’s Exteriors have come up with the top 5 home exterior projects you should address before the dog days of summer are officially upon us.
Get Your Roof in Shape for Summer
Your roof protects you and your home all season long, but to ensure it continues to, it’s time to give it a little TLC. Just like you get an annual physical to make sure your health is in tip-top shape, it’s important to get your roof inspected at least once a year to make sure that it is in tip-top shape. Depending on the extent of the issues—damaged shingles or missing shingles, cracked flashing, areas of blistering, corroded metal, etc.—you either need to repair the damaged areas or replace the entire roof. This is a home exterior project you’ll want to leave to the experts, but there’s plenty more you can DIY!
Enter the New Season with a Fresh, New, Front Door
Your front door is the first thing people see when they come to your home. With cracks in the glass or frame, damaged weatherstripping, a chipped frame or peeling finishing, your home isn’t giving off the vibe you want. Luckily, replacing your front door is a quick and easy home exterior project that can freshen up your home’s appearance.
Welcome in Summer with Clean Windows
Similar to your front door, the windows of a home are noticed as soon as you pull up to it. And damaged or dirty windows put a damper on your home’s overall aesthetic. When you clean and fix your windows, you let more sunlight into your home and brighten up its exterior. When you choose to replace your windows, opt for ones that are energy-efficient. They won’t just transform your home, but they’ll transform your energy bill by saving you money!
Make Sure Your Siding is Looking Spick and Span
Siding that’s cracked, moldy and rotting means big problems for your home. Not only does it lead to leaks, bugs, & mold, but it makes your home look run down. To transform your siding, you should first schedule an appointment with one of Glick’s Exteriors siding expert. From here, they will suggest whether your siding needs to be repaired, painted or replaced.
Prepare Your Deck for a Summer of Fun
Like a fireplace is to winter, a deck is to summer, and whether you currently have a deck that has seen better days or are looking to have one constructed, a quality deck will take your summers to new heights. For homeowners who already have a deck, now is the time to pressure wash it, stain it and seal it; for those looking for a new deck, be sure to hire a company who works with quality materials and delivers on superior craftsmanship. See some of the decks we have transformed here!
These home exterior projects will set you up for a summer of enjoying your home to its fullest. Ready to spring into action and get your home ready for summer? Contact the roofing, siding, window, door and deck experts at Glick’s Exteriors today!
