The winter months in Minnesota can go by very slowly at times, and we eagerly await the sunny, spring weather. After this weekend, we know spring is officially here to stay. Here are a few spring project ideas to consider now that the nicer weather is here:
A spring home inspection from Snap Construction is always a wise idea – mainly to make sure you:
-Check that your Minneapolis roofing and siding are in good condition.
-Avoid leaks in the upcoming rainy season.
-Identify issues such as rotting wood while they are minor and not a high priority item.
-Make sure your home is as energy efficient as possible before the weather gets too warm.
Inspections deal with the roof to make sure there aren’t any leaks or missing shingles from the bitter temperatures and winter moisture. Home inspections also can identify rotted wood. If you are concerned about rotted wood, we recommend contacting a local handyman company. A handyman or repair company can identify and easily repair the rotted wood before the problems exacerbate. Inspections also identify gaps around windows, doors, in siding, etc.
Repairing or Replacing Damaged Items
Maybe you’re worried about whether or not your roof or siding was able to make it through another winter. That can be a scary situation considering roofs, siding, and other exterior repairs are not always easy to do in the cold months. Spring is the time to consider planning and taking care of these repairs and installations.
There are a number of reasons to complete these repairs during the spring and summer. Consider the importance of the preventative measures such as avoiding leaks form the rain or rodent infestation. In many cases you do not save money by postponing these fixes, but actually can cost more due to additional damage to insulation, drywall, carpet, electrical, and more.
There are other benefits of investing in your home. Increased market value, better curb appeal, and just an overall peace of mind are both black & white as well as immeasurable upgrades.
Enjoy the Outside
Spring is great for now but we all know how fast the nice weather passes. Because of this, it’s important that you enjoy each and every day of the sun and warm temperatures. One of the best ways you can do that is by adding features to your home that expands the living space into the outdoors. This could include a deck, a 3-seasons room, a backyard barbecue, and more. Be creative and enjoy the warm season ahead!
