For Kansas City residents, spring brings much-needed relief from winter’s chilly grip, as spring temperatures tend to be among the most pleasant we experience throughout the year. This makes it an excellent time to prepare your home for the summer heat and humidity that’s just around the corner. Perhaps a bigger priority, though, is to make sure your home is ready for the windstorms we often experience in both spring and summer. Here are three important upgrades that can help you get ready for what’s ahead:
1. Fortify Your Home With New Siding
If you haven’t been shopping for exterior home upgrades in a while, you may not be aware of the technological advances that have made siding and doors more weather resistant than ever. A perennial top choice for residential siding replacement is James Hardie® siding. This brand of fiber cement siding not only looks gorgeous on just about any style of home, but it also resists damage from high-speed winds and the impacts of airborne debris—so much so that more and more people in hurricane-prone regions are opting for Hardie siding to safeguard their homes. It’s also an excellent choice for homes in Kansas City, not only because of the powerful wind events that whirl through our region in the spring and summer, but also because of the hailstorms that can inflict serious damage on ordinary house siding in the wintertime.
2. Replace Your Entry & Garage Doors for Added Protection
Many homeowners don’t think about replacing their exterior doors unless they’re detracting from their home’s curb appeal or they no longer open and close properly. Those are certainly valid reasons for exterior door replacement, but there are a few others to consider, especially as the windy and rainy season gets underway.
At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we install ProVia® front entry doors made of either fiberglass or steel that are exquisitely crafted to resemble genuine wood. These doors offer several advantages over outdated wooden doors, including:
- Better thermal performance, which can potentially help lower your cooling and heating bills
- Far more resistance to moisture absorption, swelling, and shrinking—all of which can lead to the premature need for a door replacement
- Beefed up protection against break-ins
What’s more, this well-respected manufacturer also offers Certified Wind Load impact doors that can help protect your home from high-speed winds and flying debris.
We also install steel-insulated garage doors that will add beauty to your home and increase its energy efficiency. All of the garage doors we install are ultra-tough, and you’ll have the option of choosing a model that’s rated to withstand hurricane-force winds if you wish.
