The New Year often brings with it the desire to make resolutions; we all want to improve something about our lives in some way. Some people resolve to make healthier choices and others start making plans for home improvement.
If you want to finally give your home that makeover that you have been wanting all last year, here are a few great ideas to kick start your renovation projects!
Get on top of roof problems
Few homeowner problems are more annoying than a leaky roof. Once the dripping starts, finding the source of the problem can be time-consuming. Stop problems early this year before ice and winter winds turn them from annoyances into disasters. At Aspen, we have have years of experience doing roof repairs so we would be glad to help you out.
Check windows for drafts & repair
Leaking air is a common and costly window problem. An easy way to detect drafts is by conducting a smoke test. Inside your home, place a lit incense stick in front of the tiny gap between the frame and pane. Smoke will move inwards if there is air leaking into your home. Our team has handled many windows repair projects and has the experience to do this safely.
Consider insulated window replacements
If your windows are single-pane or worn-out, consider getting double-pane replacements with insulating gas that can help keep the heat out in summer and the regulated temperature inside your home in winter. Insulated windows will help bring about a more comfortable home environment.
Check out the condition of your home’s doors
Replace worn weather stripping around each exterior door and use a rolled blanket, towel, or rug to cover the usually-drafty area at the bottom of the door. You shouldn’t need to replace the door itself unless it is very old or continues to be drafty after installing new weather stripping. Entry doors are usually very well insulated and models newer than 10 years old should not be drafty.
