As the hot, muggy weather rolls around, you’ll be thankful that you can retreat indoors. But if you’re like many other homeowners, you likely will discover a number of pests and problems that managed to invade your home. Whether you’re dealing with insects or drafty windows, updating certain parts of your home can help keep the less desirable parts of summer outside. Our team at Berg Home Improvements will help you find a feasible solution.
Here’s what you should consider if you’d like to increase your home’s comfort this summer and for the years to come.
Windows are one of the most common entrances for insects and an easy way for moisture to get in. Old, ill-fitting windows leave cracks and crevices between your walls, letting moisture and drafts get in your home. Outdoor air leads to higher indoor humidity levels, which compromises your security and comfort. Even worse, increased humidity levels can lead to damaged furniture, so be sure to take a good look at your windows. Be on the watch for drafts or condensation on your window panes. If you think it’s time to update your windows, just give us a call. We’ll help you select an excellent set of windows that will greatly improve your home!
Standing water can be an attraction to insects and should stay away from your home and farther away on your property. However, if your gutters aren’t working properly, then you likely have puddles accumulating around your house after heavy rainfall. The water may even get into your home’s foundation, leak into your basement, and destroy your walls and flooring. Furthermore, as insects are drawn to the standing water around your house, you may find more of these pests inside.
Fortunately, you can prevent water accumulation by installing new gutters. Gutters are a vital part of any home since they carry rainwater away from your home. You may even opt for leaf-proof gutters, so you don’t need to worry about them getting cluttered with debris. If you think this is a good idea, let our team know! We’re happy to discuss the possibility of new gutters with you.
Siding is essentially a shield that protects your home’s foundation from the outdoor elements. Improperly fitted siding and deteriorated fascia won’t insulate your home as well as they should, leading to higher electricity bills as your air conditioner tries to compensate.
Be sure to examine your siding for loose or broken panels, large gaps, rot, and other issues. Vinyl siding is an affordable solution for when you need to replace your home’s siding. Talk to our contractors if you’d like to learn more.
