We know what you’re thinking when you read this title; “Don’t rush Summer!” So let’s just consider this new article from DiGiorgi Roofing and Siding a gentle reminder for when the season gets closer.

Here are some great tips from the team at DiGiorgi for great projects to consider to help your Connecticut home deal with the colder months ahead.

  1. Consider upgrading with a new gutter system.

You’ve all had that problem: dead leaves get stuck in your gutters and they become clogged. Animals making their nests in gutters, the possibility of cracking, and the worst – cleaning the gutters out before it snows in order to avoid them being pulled from the roof, and even taking some of your roof with them. With LeafGuard gutters, all of these problems can be easily avoided. DiGiorgi’s no obligation in home consultation can help you decide if the one-piece gutter system is for you. Guaranteed no clogs, LeafGuard will save your wallet, and your back, in the long run.

2) Show your storm door some TLC…afterall, it plays an important role!

Your house has a beautiful wooden door on it. It would be a shame for it to be damaged by rain, wind, snow or a combination of the three. The answer is for you to install a storm door.  DiGiorgi offers several different models of storm doors, one sure to be perfect for your own style and budget. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, replace your existing door with a new one, sure to protect the home against unfavorable elements. Be prepared, before the winter months hit and you notice your door deteriorating.

3) Check for cracks and fix them now!

A window. A piece of siding. Regardless of how new or old your home is, you aren’t exempt from the possibility of a crack happening at any moment. Even the smallest opening can increase your oil and electricity bill during the cold months. Homeowners should take the opportunity to check their homes for any issues and resolve them accordingly. If the problem goes beyond a simple repair, DiGiorgi offers energy efficient windows by Marvin and siding options that will lower heating bills while increasing the value of your home.

4) Give your interior a face lift.

With the holiday season approaching, you’re sure to have guests flocking to your home regularly. Some ways to give the interior of your home a more seasonal feel are to replace a lampshade or two, change the throw on the back of the sofa, place themed candles around rather than air fresheners, or clean out the fireplace and start a fire. These methods are sure to impress your guests and give a whole new feel to your home that you don’t have to commit to for an extended length of time.

 

5) Update with a fresh coat of paint. 

Yet, if you’re looking for an interior project that you’re ready to live with for a while, there’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint to change your look and your mood. You can get inspiration from anywhere, be it the color of the leaves, or simply knowing the snow is coming and not wanting to look at a white landscape both inside and out. Whether you choose a classic color or opt to try something new, you’ll be having fun inside avoiding the chilly weather, while giving yourself, and your home, a treat.
