Summer is the best time to showcase new additions to your home; ample lighting from the summer sun makes sure all of your home’s exterior features can pop.
Read on as Asher Lasting Exteriors, your go-to company for gutters, lists the most popular summer exterior improvements below.
In winter, drafty windows can let in more cold air and increase your heating costs, while in summer, faulty windows let in more warm air and increase your cooling costs. Either way, faulty windows will cost you more over the long term. With the demand for air conditioning and electricity set to spike in summer, it’d be prudent to invest in a window replacement to minimize your power costs.
Besides, it’d be a shame not to take advantage of the abundant lighting provided by the sun. You can consult your local contractor about energy-efficient window styles that provide ample natural lighting in your home.
Summer’s the perfect time to get new siding, which makes up a large part of your curb appeal. You can install new siding to update your exterior’s look. More importantly, it’ll be better to replace siding before the wet season when moisture problems abound.
We recommend installing seamless steel siding, which provides a great balance of durability and aesthetic appeal for your exterior.
Speaking of preparing for the wet season, not all home improvements have to be tied to aesthetic appeal. Summer would be a good time to get a more effective gutter system, like seamless gutters. Seamless gutters, as the name suggests, have no crevices that rainwater can leak through, making them more efficient in diverting rainwater away from your roof.
Of course, it’s still summer, and you’d naturally want to have more space to enjoy all of that summer sunshine. Adding a patio awning can help you enjoy the summer scenery while being protected from harsh UV rays. We suggest the Sunesta® brand, which has been endorsed by the Skin Cancer Foundation.
