Summer is the ideal time to get exterior projects done, thanks to the mostly clear weather. If you’re planning to get some remodeling done at the tail end of summer, here are some quick projects you can do with a capable general contractor like Pritchett Bros.
Roof Repairs and Maintenance – If your roof is not up for replacement yet, but you haven’t had a professional maintenance check on it in a few years, consider having it immediately inspected and repaired. In addition to making sure your roof is prepared for the coming winter season, it can also help prolong your roof’s lifespan. Professionals can spot signs of potential problems and fix them before they become the kind of problem that requires costly roof repairs. A well-maintained roof also helps avoid heat leaks that could have negative effects on your home’s energy efficiency.
Replacement Windows – Speaking of energy efficiency, if you notice a spike in your energy consumption during summer and winter, your old windows may be partly to blame. Old windows with single-panel glass allow heat transference that causes heat loss during winter and heat gain during summer. Depending on the material, the window frames could warp due to exposure to extreme temperatures, creating leaks – which could cause drafts. Quality replacement windows from Pella® and Marvin can help improve your home’s energy efficiency thanks to features, such as dual-panel glazing, insulated frames and airtight sash-to-frame fit.
Front Entry Makeover – The main entranceway is your home’s focal point and forms that crucial first impression. The right combination of entry elements, including the entry door, front steps and front porch, can dramatically boost your home’s curb appeal. Entry makeovers are ideally done when the weather is clear, making them the perfect late summer remodeling project.
Deck Addition – A new deck can extend your living space and let you enjoy your outdoor space more. A custom deck lets you choose a style that fits your taste. Choose an open deck for a sprawling, easy relaxation area. Or, choose an enclosed deck if you’re worried about mosquitoes, making it a perfect spot for summer sleepovers. A new deck can also help increase your home’s value.
