The sun is out and the days are getting longer; spring is finally here! It’s the perfect time to prepare your home for the warmer weather ahead. Upgrading your home’s features and structures for spring not only enhances its visual appeal, but also improves its safety and energy efficiency. At Lincoln Exteriors, we understand the importance of a well-maintained home and offer a range of services including roofing, window, siding and door installation, to help you upgrade your home for spring. Let’s discuss why it’s essential to address your home’s exterior features in the spring and how the change in weather can affect your home.
1. Improve Your Home’s Safety
Winter can be harsh on your home’s exterior, and the damage can go unnoticed until the snow melts and spring arrives. Our changing temperatures, ice, and snow can cause cracks and damage to your home’s foundation and walls, leading to several potential safety hazards. Damage to your home’s exterior can compromise its structural integrity, and lead to problems including water leaks and condensation that can have a heavy impact on your house and on your budget. When you upgrade your home’s exterior, you can identify and rectify any potential safety hazards and address them before they escalate. Your roof, in particular, is essential to the safety of your home. When it is damaged, attic rain and condensation can cause rot and mold which are serious health and safety hazards. When it comes to a roof replacement, Lincoln Exteriors considers the importance that the entire roofing system plays in protecting your home. This includes ice and water shield, full breathable underlayment coverage, ventilation, painted valley, drip edges, replacement of all goosenecks and plumb flashing, and more. We don’t take any chances when it comes to your safety!
2. Maintain Your Home to Prevent Serious Problems
Spring is the perfect time to inspect your home’s exterior and identify any maintenance issues that need to be addressed. When it comes to maintaining your home, it’s important not to overlook the siding, windows, and doors. The siding on your home serves as a protective layer that shields your home’s exterior from the elements. However, over time, siding can become worn or damaged, leading to potential water leaks and damage to your home’s structure. This is especially true for homes with wood siding, which can rot and decay over time if not properly maintained. Inspecting your siding in the spring can help identify any issues that need to be addressed, such as cracks, warping, or rot. By addressing these issues in a timely manner, you can prevent them from becoming more significant problems and extend the lifespan of your siding.
Similarly, your windows and doors are critical components of your home’s exterior that require regular maintenance to ensure they function properly. Cracks in the caulking around windows and doors can allow water to seep in, potentially causing water damage and mold growth. Additionally, if your windows or doors are old or drafty, they can cause energy loss and increase your energy bills. Inspecting your windows and doors in the spring can help identify any issues that need to be addressed, such as gaps, cracks, or damage. Upgrading your windows and doors can not only improve your home’s energy efficiency, but also enhance its visual appeal.
Regular maintenance can also extend the lifespan of your home’s exterior and keep it looking its best for years to come!
3. Protect Your Home from Weather Elements
The change in weather from winter to spring can also affect your home’s exterior. In Calgary, we are no strangers to drastic changes in temperature, hail, heavy snowfall, ice, and freezing rain – even in the spring! The elements can cause damage to your roof, siding, and gutters, leading to potential leaks and water damage. Spring rain and thunderstorms can also wreak havoc on your home’s exterior, causing further damage.
Upgrading your home’s exterior, such as installing new siding, windows, or doors, can help protect your home from the elements and prevent potential damage. In addition, upgrading to energy-efficient options can also help reduce your energy bills, providing long-term cost savings for you and your family. At Lincoln Exteriors, we have 44 years of expertise under our belt to ensure any exterior renovation project we complete will protect and maintain your home against the intense Calgary climate for years to come.
4. Increase Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
Upgrading your home’s exterior can also have a significant impact on its energy efficiency. In fact, a large percentage of energy loss in homes can occur through the roof, windows, and doors. This means that upgrading these components can help regulate the temperature inside your home and reduce energy costs.
For example, if your roof is old or damaged, it can allow hot or cold air to escape from your home, causing your HVAC system to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature. A new roof, on the other hand, can help improve insulation and ventilation, reducing the strain on your HVAC system and ultimately saving you money on your energy bills.
In addition to the financial benefits, upgrading to energy-efficient options can also have a positive impact on the environment. By reducing your energy consumption, you can help reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.
