While not all home improvements can take place in the winter months, the season does allow homeowners the ability to carefully evaluate the intricacies of future projects. Weather conditions may prevent MN deck builders from full deck completion, but many times they are able to install footings in the late fall so that the composite deck building can be completed in early spring. The number of wood decks we install continues to diminish as more homeowners gravitate towards maintenance-free materials, such as Zuri®. Manufactured to imitate the look of exotic wood and with UV light-resisting technology, the decking is designed to maintain its looks for years to come. Paired with a Fortress ™ steel railing system, there’s no need for seasonal deck maintenance.

Fast Facts about Winter Window Replacement
One home improvement project that can be completed year-round is home window replacement. This is because seasoned window installers are able to work swiftly so that the rough opening is exposed for a minimal amount of time. Appropriate winter home humidity levels are dependent on a home’s temperature. However, a good rule of thumb is under 30%. When humidity levels rise, the environment is created for frost and condensation to form on windows. This happens when warm, moist air comes in contact with the cold surface of the window. Condensation forms and then almost immediately turns into frost. Builder grade windows are more susceptible to window condensation than custom-built windows. That’s part of the reason why we feel so confident offering our valued clients SeasonGuard and Infinity® from Marvin Replacement Windows. Running exhaust fans when cooking and bath fans after showering, can go a long way to keep winter home humidity levels in check. Failure to do so can result in mold and mildew formation, which can be a threat to your family’s health. Blower door testing, moisture meters, digital microscopes, borescopes, humidistats, and infrared imaging harnessed by a reputable professional can allow you to understand spots where your home is losing energy.
