Spring has officially arrived in Minnesota! Although the weather is still brisk and chilly, the days are beginning to get longer and soon enough the sun will be shining brighter and the air warmer. With the warmer weather quickly approaching in Minnesota, here are some top Minnesota home improvement projects to consider this spring.
A Minnesota home improvement project to consider is roof replacement or repair. Minnesota’s freezing cold weather and snowfall takes a toll on the exterior of your home, especially since your roof could have moisture seeping in between the creases, harm from ice dams, or lost shingle granules. Snap Construction can come out and provide a free inspection of your roof and look for signs of curling, peeling, or dissolution of the shingles. This is an imperative project to consider if needed because your roof is one of the first lines of defense when it comes to severe weather, and we all know what Minnesota storms can be like.
Inspecting your deck is an essential Minnesota Spring home improvement project. Stunning cedar decks are common in Minnesota and can be a main point of pride for homeowners. Check your deck for any distorted or rotting boards. The chilly winter can take a toll on the boards of your deck and also the stain. Scan the stain to see how the weather may have affected it. If your deck is in need of full replacement, composite decking may be the right option for your home. Composite decking requires minimal maintenance which can be ideal for Minnesota decks.
Take a look at the siding on your house. This may be the year to spruce it up. In addition to your roof, siding plays a vital role in protecting your home during the rough winters of Minnesota. If it is time for an update to add more curb appeal, consider LP® SmartSide®. LP® SmartSide® offers the warmth and beauty of traditional wood, with the durability and workability of engineered wood. Snap Construction recently did a plant tour of LP® Siding in Two Harbors, Minnesota, and are entirely equipped to handle your siding needs, even if it is not with the SmartSide® siding. There are also other types of siding. The options are great, so it is guaranteed that your house will find its perfect siding.
This is the year to not put off getting new rain gutters anymore! Rain gutters are an important feature of your Minnesota house, especially with the amount of rain our spring can bring. Here are some reasons why: soil around the house is stabilized, foundation troubles can be avoided, flooding in basements can be prevented, erosion can be prevent which helps preserve your landscaping, water damage to siding is reduced, and more. There are many benefits of having properly installed gutters, and the difference is incredible! If your home has traditional gutters, it is essential to clean out the debris that may have collected in them over the last season. This will prevent overflowing and allow the gutters to work to their fullest potential.
