Just These 2 Things Will Make Your Home Maintenance-Free

large__8356108416It’s easy to put off maintenance on a home. When something isn’t an emergency, it can be very difficult to make yourself get the job done. Especially since Minnesota summers fly by in a blink of an eye! It’s for this reason that many homeowners have invested in making their homes maintenance-free. In this blog, read about the different things you can do to reduce the amount of maintenance you have to do on your home each summer.

Two materials that require yearly maintenance in order to preserve their quality are wood windows and siding. They require regular attention such as:

  • Cleaning
  • Sealing
  • Painting
  • Varnishing

When weekends are filled with trips to the cabin, boating, camping, and summer sports, it becomes very difficult to keep up with all you need to do for wood materials. Then, when the end of the summer rolls around, you’ve got the Renaissance Festival and the Minnesota State Fair to keep you busy!

Instead of allowing home maintenance projects to loom in the back of your mind all summer, consider replacing your home’s windows and siding with maintenance-free materials.

Siding

Vinyl and steel siding are both excellent maintenance-free products. They don’t need to be painted and can be made to look like wood. The best part is that to restore the product’s original luster, a quick spray wash will do the job!

Windows

Once vinyl replacement windows are installed, they will give you lasting indoor comfort for years to come. They don’t need to be repainted or stained and are easy to clean. If you get windows with the tilt in feature, you can easily clean the inside and outside panes. Cleaning windows will be so easy you won’t want to save the job just for spring-cleaning!

Now that you know the joys of owning a maintenance-free home, the only thing left for you to do is find a contractor you trust to replace your existing wood materials.
