Alright Arkansas homeowners, it may not feel like it, but spring is almost here, and that means it’s time to spruce up the outside of your home. If you’ve been putting off that remodeling project for longer than you care to remember, now is the perfect time to get it done so your summer can be spent making memories! Here are a few home projects to get done during the spring.
Upgrade the Exterior
The first impression is everything, and often, vinyl siding is the first thing people notice about your house. It is also an important insulation element of your home, and having updated siding can make a significant impact on your energy bill. New trim and accent options, more styles and finishes, and a full spectrum of colors help architects, builders and homeowners achieve their ideal exterior style for any type of home in any neighborhood. Any look from historic to contemporary is possible with vinyl siding installed by Wilson’s Home Improvement!
Spring time usually comes with some wonderful views here in Arkansas and nothing will spoil an inspiring view quite like a crack in the window! Those Arkansas hot summer months will be here before you know it, which means you’ll need to beat the heat. But how do you beat the heat without breaking the bank? Look no further than energy-efficient windows. Think about updating your windows with the double-pane variety. In addition to improving your energy expenses, you can also improve the external and internal views of your home. Vinyl replacement windows are an amazing way to update your home! If you aren’t going to replace your windows, be sure you do an inspection of them. Check for holes in your screens so when that first perfect day comes, you can open your windows and let the fresh air in!
Remove Gutter Clutter
During the fall and winter, gutters are inundated by lots of dead vegetation. As the downspouts clog up, rain and melted snow can get blocked and sit in the gutters without draining properly. Besides weighing them down, this provides a good environment for springtime weeds and plants to begin to grow, which can damage your gutters. It’s a dirty job, but someone has got to clean the gutters! While you’re cleaning, be sure to inspect for damage. Determine if the holes, dents or cracks should be repaired or if you should consider replacing them. (A great time for replacing gutters is when you have vinyl siding put on)
Evict winter guests
Once things begin warming up, take some time to walk the perimeter of your home surveying any obvious property damage. Make sure you do a thorough inspection to make sure no animals have burrowed into your house over the winter. Less-used spaces like storage basements and attics can sometimes invite houseguests of the inhuman variety by way of holes in your exterior cladding, window cracks and roof breaches you may not have noticed.
