Roofing tips - What should I replace first in spring

After a long and cold winter, your home will probably need a spring remodel for your home. With the harsh winter weather often causing damage to a home, a home improvement project in Spring will bring it back to its original glory. However, choosing what to replace first can be a challenge, especially if you want your home to look brand new again. In this article, we recommend an effective and efficient way of remodeling your home in Spring.

While you can follow any order, at Heartland Roofing and Siding, we recommend starting from the upper part of the house and moving down. This means starting with roof repair or replacement, followed by new windows and then new sidings. With this simple approach, you will be preventing your new installations from getting damaged by other home improvements done during the project. For instance, if you started by replacing new sidings, they are likely to be damaged when you start working on the roof.

Step 1: Replace or Repair Roof
Repairing or replacing your roof will improve the general look of your home, increasing energy efficiency while adding significant safety and comfort. Being the outermost part of the house, starting with roof replacement will kickstart the project and give your home the new look. The new roof will increase the ability of your home to deflect heat and save on energy costs, keep the temperature inside the home cool for more comfort, and increase the safety and security of your family by shielding them from harsh weather.

Step 2: Install New Windows
Once you have replaced the roof, you can now move on to installing new windows. In fact, there is no better time to replace your windows than during a spring remodel. The new windows will help you achieve the aesthetic look you want for your home, air seal your home, and protect it from noise pollution. The new windows installation will ensure all the gaps have been sealed, adding more comfort to your home.

Step 3: Upgrade Sidings
Upgrading your sidings should come last on the list. Although this is the part that is often overlooked in home improvement projects, the siding on your home can provide unique charm and character. It also protects the interior structure of the home and prevents rainwater from entering the home. The focus here should be on fixing structural damage, achieving better curb appeal, and adding insulation to exterior walls.
