The Winter Solstice doesn’t officially occur until December 21st, but in Minnesota we feel the winter weather much earlier than that. With temperatures dropping quickly (and earlier than usual), you need to make sure your home is ready for winter.

Here are four simple home improvement tasks to take on for winter:

  1. Roof Inspection/Repair
The earlier in the season, the better to have your roof inspected. The inspection will be performed that your roof is free from damage and can handle rain, snow, hail, or any other tricks the elements might have up their sleeves. If preliminary repairs can be made, it is best to catch them early.
  1. Attic Insulation
Attic insulation is most important during the colder months of the year. While snowstorms may rage outside, you can your home warm and dry with proper attic insulation. Proper attic insulation stops from putting too much strain on your heating system.
  1. Siding Replacement
The siding of your home is also one of the top considerations for home improvement before winter hits. Proper siding makes your insulation even more successful, so you shouldn’t notice a spike in your energy costs.
  1. Window Preparation
Most of the cold air or melted snow intrusion in winter comes from the windows. It’s critical to prepare them for the winter weather before it is at its worst. You can supplement your window’s weatherproofing by cleaning removable screens and replacing them with storm windows.
