3 Steps You Need to Take to Prepare Your Colorado Home for Winter

As winter months are approaching Colorado, making sure your home is prepared for winter is crucial. Colorado winters bring many severe weather concerns, below freezing temperatures, rapid climate change from an abundance of moisture to extreme dryness, and more. In addition to protecting your home from all the winter elements, finding ways to save on energy costs is also a top priority for many homeowners. In order to properly prepare your home for winter, looking into window and siding replacement can be extremely beneficial.

Benefits of Preparing Your Colorado Home for Winter with Window and Siding Replacement

Colorado homes can dramatically improve their property and be winter-ready by replacing windows and siding. Outdated windows can be extremely detrimental when it comes to energy consumption– approximately 30% of heating costs go right out your window during the winter. Updating your windows to Low-E or other energy efficient options can save you money, heighten property value, and improve curb appeal. Many siding options just aren’t fit to handle the winters we experience here. Vinyl siding can crack easier in below freezing temperatures while wood siding can be susceptible to moisture rot and pests. Fiber cement siding, steel siding, and engineered composite wood siding can address Colorado winters so much better. James Hardie® actually offers a climate-specific engineered siding solution just for Colorado.
