Care and Caution for Summer Months


Posted on: August 3rd, 2017 by admin

Summer months are some of the most ideal times to get to your home improvement projects. Not only are the days longer, but the added time that the sun is out makes it perfect to tackle those projects you’ve been putting off. But, do keep in mind that high-risk is also a part of summer.

Be very mindful of the temperature, as well as being in the sun for long periods of time. Also, keep in mind that different parts of your house can either be cooler or hotter than normal outside temps. If you’re attempting any work within your attic, make sure you try to get to it during the morning times, as heat has not had the chance to build & collect up there. If you do have to work in your attic at peak temperature hours, minimize your times up there to only a few minutes at a time, drink plenty of water, and, if possible, maximize air flow.
