Winter-Ready Exteriors: How BA Exteriors Prepares Homes for the Cold

, ,

As winter approaches, homeowners often focus on keeping their interiors warm and cozy. However, it’s equally essential to prepare your home’s exterior to withstand the challenges of the cold season. At BA Exteriors, we believe in comprehensive home care, which includes getting your home ready for colder weather. Here’s how our expert team ensures that your home’s exterior is winter-ready.

Roofing Inspection and Repairs

Your roof is your home’s first line of defense against winter weather. Our skilled roofing experts conduct thorough roof inspections to identify any existing issues. We look for damaged or missing shingles, leaks, and signs of wear and tear. Addressing these issues promptly helps prevent water damage and heat loss during the winter months.

Siding Maintenance

Siding plays a crucial role in protecting your home’s structure. We inspect siding for cracks, gaps, or areas where it may have pulled away from the house. These vulnerabilities can allow cold air and moisture to penetrate your exterior wall and enter your home. We repair or replace damaged siding to ensure your home remains well-insulated.

Window and Door Sealing

Air leaks caused by drafty windows and doors can significantly impact your home’s energy efficiency. Our team checks for gaps and drafts around window frames and doors and applies weatherstripping or caulking as needed. This simple step can help maintain a comfortable indoor temperature and reduce energy costs.

Gutter Cleaning and Maintenance

Clogged gutters can lead to ice dams, which can damage your roof and siding. Before winter sets in, we clean gutters and downspouts, ensuring that excess water can flow freely. We also inspect gutters for damage and make any necessary repairs.

Insulation Assessment

Proper insulation is essential for keeping your home warm during winter. Our experts assess your home’s insulation levels and recommend upgrades if necessary. Adequate insulation helps retain heat and can result in significant savings on your energy bills.

Exterior Lighting

With shorter days and longer nights, good exterior lighting is essential for safety and security. Inspect, repair, replace your outdoor lighting fixtures, ensuring that pathways and entrances are well-lit.

Winter Landscaping

Preparing your landscaping for winter involves trimming trees and bushes to prevent damage from heavy snow and ice. We also advise on proper snow removal techniques to protect your hardscapes and prevent accidents and expensive repairs.

Emergency Repairs

Winter storms can sometimes cause unexpected damage. We offer emergency repair services to address any issues that arise during the cold season promptly. Whether it’s a fallen tree or a damaged roof, we’re here to help with dead branches and broken shingles when you need it most.

Energy-Efficient Upgrades

We can recommend and install energy-efficient upgrades like storm doors, attic insulation, and energy-efficient windows to further enhance your home’s winter readiness.

Snow Removal Services

For added peace of mind, consider hiring snow removal services to keep your driveways and walkways clear and safe during winter storms.
