Depending upon where you live, winter storms can take a toll on the exterior of your home. It’s nothing to be worried or upset about, your house was designed to protect you and your family from the weather, but part of the design incorporates an understanding you’ll need occasional repairs and maintenance. Today’s home siding will last multiple lifetimes if properly cared for, including a bit of routine maintenance and cosmetic repair as part of spring cleaning after the winter storms.
For most people, nothing is nicer than seeing the end of winter as spring approaches. However, spring brings new chores with it. You have to start mowing grass, planting your garden, and most importantly, conducting the repairs and maintenance your house needs. You may think of such repairs in terms of the things you see, such as cabinetry, lighting or paint color selection. Then again, there are more important repairs of a structural rather than cosmetic nature which needs attending to, one of which is the roof and assuring it does its job of being your first barrier against the weather.
When it comes to the exterior of your home, you need a material that is going to provide the best protection for those materials that provide the integrity of the structure. Of course, you also want it to look attractive and provide a good return on your investment. Cement fiber siding does all this -- and more!
As a homeowner, you long for the days when the weather is warmer so that you can get to your to-do list. Fortunately, spring is here and you can get to the work that you’ve up off all year. If you don’t have a to-do list, then one project you should consider is adding a garage.
Although spring brings warm weather and the promise of grilled hotdogs and hamburgers, everything about spring isn’t warm and fuzzy. In fact, spring brings with it a lot of rain, which isn’t simply a downer for your outdoor event. Heavy rains could potentially cause a problem for your roofing. The following are three ways you can protect your roof from spring.
Whether you’re having a new house built or remodeling an older home to meet modern standards, you’ve likely considered how the deck is going to function. It may be a place for entertaining and grilling, or it might essentially be an extra room where you like to spend your free time when the weather permits. The intended purpose is likely going to dictate whether you want a large or small deck and whether you incorporate customized features or a basic generic style design.
Every homeowner understands how gutters serve a function, but few understand exactly how important that function is. Gutters do look nice, they serve as a line between the roof and the body of your house, but they are more than decorative. As you realize the convenience of how they keep rain from pouring directly over the edge of the roof you begin to understand the real purpose of the gutters. They direct rainwater and assure it goes where you want it to be.
Garaged space is important for every homeowner. It’s a place where you keep your “stuff,” the things that are too important to leave outside but don’t require an indoor space. In some cases, the very nature and design of your garage may dictate how you can use it. Better yet, you can design your garage as appropriate to suit your needs if you put a bit of foresight and planning into the garage.
If you’re like most people, you assume your roof is in good working order. There are no apparent leaks and the roof looks nice from the street. As far as you know or could be expected to know, nothing is wrong with the roof. However, the early stages of a potential problem don’t present with visible signs, which is why regular roof inspections and maintenance are important. You want to catch any issues before they become a larger problem which requires more extensive repairs to the water damage caused.
