Spring is in the Air! What That Means for Your Home | Great Canadian Roofing & Siding
Spring is around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about your home’s needs for the sunny seasons. Not only do you want to keep your family cool during the hotter days, but you also want to ensure that your home looks great for those spring holidays and parties.
Here are some of the repairs you should consider as you approach the spring season:
Air Conditioning Installation
Naturally, you don’t want to have to sweat through the spring. Not only does a new air conditioner keep you cool, but it can also be a cost-effective energy solution. Professionals can repair or upgrade your AC unit to ensure it is working efficiently.
If spring allergies get you down, you might also consider an air-quality product such as an air cleaner and purifier or a heat-recovery ventilator. Air cleaners and purifiers reduce dust to help you breathe easier. Heat-recovery ventilators prevent excess moisture and freshen your home’s air.
Window and Door Upgrade
Your home will looks its best for spring with the installation of brand new windows and doors. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, but they can also improve your home’s energy efficiency. Quality windows and doors reduce utility bills in the spring by keeping cold air in and hot air out.
To further increase glass windows’ energy efficiency, professionals can install windows with Low-E or argon gas, which reduces the amount of ultraviolet light that enters your home. This improves your air conditioner’s ability to keep your house cool.
Soffit and Fascia Installation
Both soffits and fascias add an appealing accent to your home and also reduce the possibility of weather damage in any season. Soffits function as an air intake for your attic. Without a quality soffit area, your home could have a poor ventilated attic, which overheats your home in the spring. Similarly, fascias protect the roof’s wood from sun damage.
Roofing Repairs and Upgrades
Your roof protects you from sun, rain, and wind—so why wouldn’t you want to protect your roof? To avoid greater costs down the road, have a professional repair your roof. Streaking stains, curled or buckled shingles, water stains, moss, or mold in the attic are all signs that can alert you of the importance of repairing your roof. Professionals can assess roof damage and renovate it so you can decrease energy costs and improve your home’s value.
If you want a big change for spring, you may want to replace your roof entirely. It’s important to choose the highest quality materials for your roof. Metal roofs block heat transfer into the home. Asphalt shingles and concrete tile are also durable options.
