Summer Home Projects

May is National Home Improvement month! Thinking about remodeling your home’s exterior this summer? Have you been putting off installing those new windows, updating old clogged gutters, or replacing that worn asphalt shingle roof? Spring is the perfect time to start planning these big summer home projects. Home Solutions of Iowa is a one-stop contractor for all your summer home improvement needs. HSI offers roofing, LeafGuard® gutters, insulation, siding, windows, and rain barrels.

“Must Do” List

Below is our recommended “must do” list that homeowners should review every year. May is the perfect time to tackle these updates weather wise and economically efficient when replacing a roof or windows when such work will have the least impact on energy bills.

  1. Check your roof. Look for missing, broken or faded shingles. These can be signs that you may need a new roof. HSI is recognized as one of the “elite of the elite” in the top 2% of residential roofing contractors in the United States as a GAF MasterElite® Contractor with a 2 Star President’s Club status. We offer homeowners a variety of asphalt shingles, one of the most popular being GAF Timberline Ultra HD® asphalt shingles.

Blown off shingles can expose your home to structural damage, mold, and mildew.

  1. Clean your siding. Pressure washing works well for most homes to remove dirt and algae but remember, never power-wash windows or window screens. While cleaning, check for changes in the exterior and be aware of any warping, storm damage or signs of insects. If you are in need or repairs or replacement altogether, we offer LP® SmartSide® trim and siding that is built to last.

When using a power washer on wood or vinyl siding, set it at the lowest pressure setting to ensure it does not damage the siding or remove the paint.

  1. Windows. If you noticed last winter that air was leaking in or out or condensation between the glass, it might be time to replace your windows. With our SeasonGuard windows, every window is designed to allow the maximum amount of light in and built with quality in mind. With the superb design, ease of maintenance, and exceptional durability, “look” no further.
