Congratulations ladies and gentlemen, you’ve survived another winter, and we must say that this winter’s stretch was particularly rough. Your home could probably use a little TLC now to make a comeback for the warmer months. The truth of the matter is that the early spring months are the perfect time to take care of those home improvement projects that you’ve been dreaming about all winter. Here are some of our favorites to get you started:
Get a New Fence: If you own a wood fence, you understand how the elements can affect your fence. First and foremost, snow and fences don’t make good partners. The snow warps and damages the fence. It can also cause fences to rust. We recommend installing a new aluminum fence as a highly durable, aesthetically-pleasing way to secure your property. Aluminum fences don’t rust and can withstand the elements far better than wood. As soon as the ground thaws, take some time to check out our extensive collection of aluminum fencing materials.
Take Care of Those Gutters: Okay, so you probably haven’t cleaned out those gutters in a while. We don’t blame you; it’s not the most fun job out there. Still, you should probably get the ladder and clean them out. The fall and winter months have produced a ton of dead vegetation, which could clog your gutters. Luckily, it’s very easy to clean them out. Just angle your ladder against your house, position a tarp below your gutters, and scoop the gunk out. It might be a good idea to wear some rubber gloves depending on how long you’ve waited.
Get Your AC Inspected and Repaired: Repeat after us: I will not wait until July when something breaks to have someone take a look at my HVAC unit. Anyone who has experienced an outage during the hot summer months knows how much of a pain it can be to get it fixed. You’re normally not alone in your procrastination, and it could take weeks for a HVAC repairman to have an appointment. It’s much smarter to have your HVAC unit inspected now when it’s not 100 degrees, so any repairs can be made. Remember that you can do some maintenance here too, like replacing the filter. A functional HVAC unit will be very useful during pollen season as well.
When it comes to home improvement projects, spring is the perfect time to get some things done. Now is the time to get out of the house and give your home a little TLC. Contact us today with any questions you might have about purchasing and installing your aluminum fence.
