After a winter full of strong winds and excessive snow, the exterior of your home may have taken a beating. Landscaping is a great start to getting your property summer-ready, but what about your house? Give your home some extra attention this season by completing these home improvement projects:

Replace your siding

Siding works to keep our houses cool in the summer and warm in the winter, something we value a lot as homeowners in the ever-changing Buffalo weather. When exposed to high levels of heat or intense weather, siding can crack, chip or blister. To solve this, you want to replace the damaged siding with vinyl siding. Not only will vinyl siding keep your home well-insulated, it’ll protect your home from damaging water and pests that find ways inside through cracks chips. The best part about replacing siding? There are a lot of color and style options to make it exciting! You can change the whole look of your home with a hot new siding color. At Stockmohr, we’ve been installing siding for a long time, so we make sure to only offer the best. We offer nine different types of ProVia siding with about 40 color options to choose from. If you’re going to replace your siding this summer, why not customize it to give your home a fresh look?

Give your roof and gutters attention

Let’s be real, this past winter was rough! Many homes in Western New York suffered wind damage. While it’s best to leave inspecting your roof to a trained professional, you can search your property for missing trim or roof shingles; you can also check your attic for water damage to decipher if there is roof damage causing it. Summer is an ideal time to make roof repairs due to the weather being a little more welcoming than snow. Whether you want to switch up your roof and have it replaced, or just need it repaired, call a professional to inspect your roof and provide a quote for the work you want. You’ll be glad you took care of it before the weather changes!
