Local Portland, ME contractor discusses how and why to have home repairs done during these colder months

January 14, 2013

Before homeowners consider putting off their call to a Portland, ME building contractor for necessary home repairs during the winter, they may want to think again. Many people look at something like a new roof or replacement windows in Maine as something that is done only during the warmer spring and summer months. The reality is, if the proper precautions are taken, these home renovations can also be made during the frigid winter months. The work does need to be skillfully and quickly as the weather here can change from day to day, so homeowners will want to make sure they find a qualified, efficient, and experienced contractor to get things done the right way, the first time, with no delay.

Many would wonder why their home repairs are urgent enough to do during the winter months. In reality, many home repairs need to be done as soon as they are noticed. Water damage, for example, cannot be ignored. That water can continue to come into the home, wear away at and rot the wooden components behind walls, damage floors and ceilings, and compromise the structural integrity of the house. This same water damage can also cause mold growth and even lead to infestation over time. So, it is important to address it as quickly as possible. If, as the winter gets colder, homeowners are recognizing an excessive draft coming from doorways, the attic, basement, or around windows, then there is an insulation problem. It could mean that the insulation between walls or in crawl spaces needs redone. It could also mean that it is time to contact a Maine window replacement and winterization specialist.

When homeowners realize that they need repairs, they need to look at who to call. Putting things off will typically only lead to making things worse. Since home window replacements can be done for repairs during the winter, they can also be installed as part of home remodeling. There may be special offers or choice scheduling available, because so many are under the impression that these types of things—like roof repairs in Maine—cannot be done during the colder winter months. For those experience building contractors, however, these jobs can be completed during the winter.
