4 Exterior Remodels to Consider in the Spring

Apr 04, 2020

The start of spring is an ideal time to think about completing some of those renovations you have kept on the back burner for a while. Birds are chirping, flowers are in bloom, and the weather is perfect for exterior remodeling jobs. The freezing winter has passed, and warmer days are here. It is the perfect time before the hot weather hits when contractors often do the most efficient work. Speaking of hot weather, if you have your project completed before we get into the hazy days of summer, new energy efficient windows, or roofing can contribute greatly to savings in utility bills once you start relying on your air conditioning to keep your family cool. Here are a few exterior remodeling projects you should consider getting done this spring.

Energy Efficient Windows

Although newer homes are generally constructed with widows that help conserve energy, many homeowners have houses that were built before this was a common practice. Even homes with more modern windows often have windows that have outlived their purpose. Sometimes they have broken seals, which renders them inefficient. Sometimes they have broken locks, panes, and mechanisms that affect their ability to function properly. Most people would be shocked to learn the amount of money they spend cooling and heating their homes that could have been saved with new energy efficient windows. These windows are also aesthetically appealing, which adds curb appeal and charm to homes with outdated windows.

Spring is an ideal time to install new windows, because homeowners are already sprucing things up outside their homes and trying to have the most stunning house in the neighborhood for the summer. New windows are stylish and efficient, and they come in a variety of styles to fit any budget. They will fit more tightly than older, worn out windows and help to take the load off your air conditioning unit over the summer, which means savings on your utility bills.

Install a Metal Roof

If your existing roof is showing the signs of age, you have probably already realized you will need to replace it soon. Spring is the best time to get a brand new metal roof installed. Have your home looking spectacular for summer with this small step. Traditional asphalt roofs generally have a lifespan of around 20 years, so if you are the second owner of the home or if you haven’t had your roof replaced in some time, it may be ready for a new one.

The great thing about a metal roof is that once you install it, you will probably not have to worry about a full roof replacement again. Metal roofs are generally guaranteed for 50 years but are known to last much longer with proper care and maintenance. The other benefit that homeowners find most appealing is that metal roofs are the most energy efficient on the market. The metal reflects most of the sun’s rays and keeps the house cool in the summer, which makes spring the ideal time for installation. Energy bills usually drop by 20-30% after a metal roof is installed. Even winter heating bills generally see a 10% reduction because of the roof’s superior insulating properties.

Homeowners also see savings over time with metal roofs because they never require repairs unless they are damaged by an unforeseen accident. They are environmentally friendly and can be installed right over the old roof, which saves on landfill space. And if that isn’t enough to convince you, they also come in a greater array of colors and styles than any other roofing material.

Don’t Delay

Spring has just arrived, and contractors’ schedules are already filling up. If you want to knock out some of these projects that you’ve had on the back burner before summer arrives, now is the time to reach out to your contractor and start planning for your remodel. You will be glad you did when the summer sun arrives and you are enjoying the exterior beauty of your home while seeing big savings on your utility bills.
