Spring has long been associated with renewal and re-birth. From the arrival of the next generation of livestock on the farm, to our celebration of Resurrection Sunday, spring is a time for new beginnings. Many choose to use this season to assess that pantry, go through that closet, or do some long-needed “spring cleaning”. Spring is also a great time for the responsible homeowner to thoroughly go through their home, inside and out, and revitalize it.
In climates that experience the teeth of winter (like ours), summer can feel like a time to forget all the stresses of the cold and just relax. But before you break out the hammock and BBQ grill, there are a few simple steps that every homeowner should take to make sure that their home has fully recovered from all that ice and snow.
Autumn is beautiful. With crisp fall mornings and warm golden afternoons, autumn is also our driest season. However, as we get enamored with the vivid colors of the changing leaves and the cornucopia of harvest fruits and vegetables, it’s easy to forget how that cool, crisp air will soon turn to bitter cold and the dry season of fall will soon turn to the cold rain and snow of winter. A wise homeowner will take steps to make sure their home is prepared for those changes.
The onset of winter is a good time to take a close look at your home. With temperatures dropping and wet weather moving in, your home can take a beating. But there are several low-cost steps that a responsible homeowner can take to ensure their investment remains as durable, comfortable, and energy efficient as possible.
