Is Your Home Hot Weather Ready?

At Thunderbolt Construction, Inc., we plan on enjoying the mild spring temperatures as long as we can. The fresh breeze and sunshine make a great combo for our Illinois team. However, before we know it, the summer heat will be here, and we want to help you make sure your home is ready to handle it.

One of the best ways to help you and your home fight the heat of summer is with insulation. Many people consider insulation as important solely for the winter months. However, this added layer to your home’s walls and attic is just as essential to keeping cool air in during the summer.

If you aren’t sure whether your Chicago home is properly insulated, have a general contractor come take a look. (We give you some tips on how to find a good one in this blog post, or you can just skip reading and call us.) The contractor can thoroughly assess your property and see whether you have the right amount of insulation. He or she should also check to see whether the insulation is properly placed. Too many times we’ve seen insulation unevenly dispersed, causing air to leak in certain areas.

Another point of consideration is your siding. If the siding on your home is old or worn, it may not be providing your home with the best protection from the elements. You may want to consider the value of new siding. At Thunderbolt Construction, we have a wide range of siding options and even provide professional installation. We can have your whole home looking and feeling better than ever before summer’s arrival.

For a free, no-obligation quote on siding installation or any of our other home-improvement services, contact Thunderbolt Construction at (630) 584-7600, or fill out our online contact form at any time. We can help you get your home ready for the summer months ahead.
