There’s been a noticeable chill in the air recently, prompting residents throughout the Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio and Fairlawn, Ohio areas to turn off the AC and prepare for fall. Though Ohio weather is unpredictable at best, it’s safe to assume that temperatures will continue to drop over the coming weeks. With that in mind, local homeowners should consider getting a head-start by enlisting the help of an HVAC technician for an early furnace inspection. Making seasonal furnace maintenance and repair a top priority ensures that residents will stay warm and cozy through the fall and winter months, which is why Bill’s Heating and Cooling (330.794.4309) recommends performing a thorough check-up of one’s heating unit sooner rather than later.

When it comes to exterior home renovations, windows can be overlooked. This is because siding, shutters, and other exterior features are often considered to be a primary part of a home’s curb appeal. In truth, the appearance of a home’s windows can enhance its exterior appearance as much as any other exterior feature. Not only this, but new home windows can help enhance the energy efficiency of a residence—especially if the windows they’re replacing are a home’s original windows. However, obtaining windows that compliment a home’s exterior design as well as function isn’t always easy to come by.

Trademark Exteriors_Contact GraphicThe colder the weather is outside, the harder your heating system has to work to keep your home warm inside. Although you may think drafty doors and windows are responsible for the lowered temperatures inside your home, the truth is that damaged siding could be the main culprit. In fact, siding with holes, cracks, and other damages can allow the cold air to slip in and permeate the interior wall of your residence. In turn, this can lower the overall internal temperature of your Coshocton County, Ohio area home and force your heating system to work even harder. The harder your heating system has to work to combat this cold, the more expensive your heating bills can be! With this in mind, consider investing in residential replacement siding for your Wayne County, Ohio area residence from Trademark Exteriors this season.

By investing in this new siding for your Stark County, Ohio or Tuscarawas County, Ohio area residence, you can eliminate some of the drafts that raise your energy bills during the cold months. If you only want to replace the damaged portions of your home’s vinyl siding, you’ll be happy to know that Trademark Exteriors offers their quality siding in a wide range of color. However, siding that is fading, warping, or is outdated is best replaced in full rather than in small select areas in order to maintain efficiency in protecting your home from the elements throughout the year.

signature design_logoishMaking the decision to finally tackle that home improvement project can be more than a little intimidating. Not only do you need to have an image in your head of how you want the finished product to look, but you also need to enlist the help of a company that can make it a reality. The problem that many people run into is that most construction teams use the same approach. In addition to managing two separate contracts, a lot of these companies don’t submit a cost proposal until just before construction begins. Unfortunately, that means you may have to start from scratch if the project won’t fit your budget. The good news is that not all remodeling professionals follow the traditional model. Signature-Design-Remodeling-Landscape in Canton, Ohio, for instance, provides their clients with the design-build advantage. Along with submitting the cost proposal ahead of time for their clients’ convenience, this local business handles all residential/commercial design services in house. Countless homeowners throughout the North Canton, Ohio and greater Stark County, Ohio area can attest to the fact that this approach delivers the best possible results.

Trademark Exteriors_Contact GraphicAs the temperatures begin to drop outside, you may begin to feel the cold affecting the temperature of your home inside- especially if it has its original windows! Why? The windows of older homes tend not to have the updated design needed to reduce air infiltration from outside.

Knowing this, consider updating the outdated windows of your property in the Wooster, Ohio or Coshocton, Ohio area with help from Trademark Exteriors!
