Minneapolis is a city that is known for its bitterly cold winters. Now is the time to take advantage to prepare for the cold season and make sure your home is ready.
The winter may be long way off, but there are some home improvement projects that you can take advantage of, no matter what the season may be. One such is maintaining or repairing your siding. According to this article on www.doityourself.com, you can:
Check the siding on your house’s exterior, looking for cracks and gaps. Caulk and patch the cracks to prevent leaks and the damage that could result from them. Install or replace the weather stripping on all your windows and doors and any other areas where there are gaps. You can prime raw the siding of your house to temporarily waterproof it. You can seal brick exteriors with a high-quality masonry sealer in order to prevent the damage caused by the “freeze-thaw” process.
Fall is an ideal time to paint; however do not paint with latex paint when the temperature drops lower than 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
Although, there are other reinforcement options, replacement is always better. If you’d like to avoid all the hassle of caulking and/or painting your siding, it’s time you get James Hardie siding in Minneapolis.
