How to Prepare Your Richmond Home’s Exterior for Summer

How to Prepare Your Richmond Home’s Exterior for Summer

Richmond summers mean sunshine but also scorching heat and the occasional severe storm. This combo is a recipe for trouble when it comes to your home’s exterior. Don’t let worn-out siding or leaky windows ruin your comfort. Follow these tips to keep your home safe and energy-efficient. Plus, we’ll discuss signs that it might be time for a bigger upgrade with help from Richmond’s experts at Lonestar Siding & Windows.

How to Prepare Your Siding & Windows Exterior for Hot Richmond Summers

Inspect Your Siding

Your siding is your home’s first line of defense against the elements. Here’s what to look for:

  • Warping or Cracking: These signal moisture damage or age and can lead to leaks.
  • Fading: Extreme fading means a loss of protection, making your siding vulnerable.
  • Holes or Loose Sections: Openings invite pests and water intrusion.
  • Mold or Mildew: Green or black patches indicate moisture problems causing rot.

Check Your Windows

Inefficient windows make your AC work overtime in Richmond’s heat. Look out for:

  • Drafts: Feel for air leaks around the frame, a sign of failing seals.
  • Difficulty Opening/Closing: Warped frames mean poor insulation.
  • Condensation between Panes: This signals seal failure, reducing efficiency.

Preparing for Summer Matters!

You Can Prevent Costly Damage: A small siding  or window issue can snowball if ignored.

You’ll Save on Energy Bills: Sealing gaps and upgrading lowers cooling costs.

You Can Give your Home a Big Curb Appeal Boost: Fresh siding or windows instantly update your home’s look.
