With warmer months right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning. While you likely have ‘organize the garage’ or ‘clean out the attic’ on your list, there are a number of exterior remodeling projects you should consider as well. Though exterior remodeling doesn’t involve any literal cleaning, springtime offers an excellent opportunity to touch up your Seattle, Washington, home’s exterior, making the following projects ideal additions to your spring to-do list.
Inspect Your Roof
Hail, wind and other harsh winter weather can take a toll on your roof. Once the snow has melted, you should examine your roof to see if any damage has occurred. If leaks have sprung, you notice missing shingles or granules turn up in your gutters, a roof replacement may be in order – and spring is the perfect time to take care of this project.
Replace Old Windows
If you’ve been considering a window replacement for a while but haven’t gotten around to it, springtime offers an excellent opportunity. If you get started quickly, you’ll be able to have new energy-efficient windows in place before the heat of the summer sets in. This way, you can be sure your home will stay cool and comfortable over the summer and be prepared to handle the cold winter that will follow.
Update Your Gutters
With rainy season upon us, you definitely want to make sure your gutters are functioning properly. If new gutters are in order, now is the time to have them installed. You may also want to consider investing in gutter guards, as these will prevent debris from falling into your gutters and clogging them up. With gutter guards in place, you can cross ‘clean the gutters’ off your list for good.
