Protect Your Home During Nebraska’s Intense SummerJun 30, 2014
Summer has finally arrived in Omaha! You know what that means in Nebraska; baseball in the backyard, neighborhood barbecues, and extreme heat! While you’re enjoying summer activities, keep in mind that there are seasonal damages that can happen to your home…
Having updated windows, doors, and siding during the summer months is important to save energy and reduce costs in your home. Having energy efficient exteriors can reduce cooling costs and help you control the temperature in your home.
Outdated windows and doors can put any home at risk in the extreme Nebraska summer heat. Expansion between the glass and an old frame caused by the changing of temperatures weakens the structure and will likely lead to air leakage, stressed frames and joints, broken window seals, and condensation. New and energy conscious windows and doors such as Amerimax and Amcraft are designed to withhold the heat and prevent risking the efficiency of your home.
Extreme heat and sun exposure may also cause damage to a home’s siding. Vinyl siding particularly has a low melting point and can be vulnerable during the summer months. Our Omaha siding contractors can assess any damage and recommend high-quality siding that will not only withstand the high temperatures this summer but for future Nebraska summers.
Now that you’re aware, make sure to keep these things in mind throughout the summer! If the quality or efficiency of your home’s windows, doors, or siding is question, please don’t hesitate to call our professional Omaha contractors at Elite Exteriors.
