With incoming cold weather not too far away, you may feel rushed to get everything done and ready around your house for the winter. Whether your to-do list is long or short, we get it! It’s a good feeling to have everything in place while the weather is still nice.
But we also believe that you don’t need to do everything at once. Sometimes, it’s worth it to spend a little extra time and effort on larger projects to ensure that your home is in the best shape possible for the new season (and we all know how rough winters can get in Minnesota!)
Here are a few ideas from the Northfield Construction Company team.
How’s your roof holding up? A typical asphalt shingled roof lasts somewhere around 20 -25 years and a roof installed over an existing layer of shingles should usually be replaced after 20 years. Additionally, if your roof has suffered any damage from a recent storm, it’s a good idea to get it inspected and fixed in order to perform properly. If this is a need at your home, we recommend getting it checked out before the winter months. That way, you can cozy up inside your home with peace of mind.

Replacing windows and doors
Say goodbye to drafty windows and doors (you may save some money on your heat bill if you do!) Getting rid of old and worn fixtures around your house will improve the efficiency of the energy use around your home, leaving you one less thing to worry about on those especially cold winter nights.
Addressing exterior issues
Damaged siding? Broken trim? Cracked concrete? Not only are these exterior problems unsightly, but they can also cause problems in the future for your home if not properly addressed. Take inventory of what needs help around your home, and what you can solve within your budget. We’d be happy to help walk you through options!
When it comes to remodeling during the fall season, don’t let yourself get too overwhelmed. Take it one step at a time, and figure out the most pressing issues for your home. When you’re ready, give the team at Northfield Construction Company a call. We’re here to help!
