As winter wanes, and with it the snow thaws and melts, you might be noticing multiple areas around your house that need touching up. Especially if that melting snow is melting right into your house! Most commonly, melting snow exposes problems in windows and doors. And while the worst part of bad weather may be over, it is not too early to start thinking about how to prepare your home for the next winter.
From a leaky roof to leaky windows, you might be worried about where to start and what needs fixing most urgently.
First, take stock of the problems that you have discovered. Make a list of the things that affect the envelope of the house on the top, as those will need fixing first. The envelope of the house are the exterior parts that protect the interior from the elements. Typically you would be looking at your doors, windows, roof, and siding. After you have established what parts of the envelope need to be repaired, or replaced, then fill the rest of the list with the items inside your home that have proven themselves to be problematic this winter.
If your house is still sporting old rotted through wooden frames, or rusting metal ones that let in melting snow, it is time for you to upgrade your windows. By replacing an older one with a new vinyl window you can rest assured that you are investing in new windows that will help protect your home from the elements. Vinyl PVC windows are easy to take care of as well, so you can look forward to having to worry much less about the upkeep and maintenance of your windows.
