Maximizing Comfort in your Home

I don't know about you, but it's finally hitting me that the season has changed and it's time to start getting the house ready for colder months. I'm more than okay with fall's arrival (not to be cliché, but bring on the Pumpkin -- lattes, beer -- heck, I'll take pumpkin anything!!!).

Most of my home projects revolve around aesthetics & functionality, but as fall has come & winter is approaching, I need to start thinking about my family's comfort in the home. I'm talking: preserving heat, maximizing sunlight, and being able to walk outside my backdoor even if it is raining!

With these three simple projects from Perdue Builders & Supply, you can maximize the comfort in your home:

1. Upgrade your siding:

One of the simplest ways to achieve comfort through home improvement in Seattle, WA, is to regulate the temperatures around your home. Siding is one of the most effective ways to do this because it covers the entirety of your home. Vinyl is a good choice because the material is naturally resistant to heat transfer -- this will keep the heat inside during the coming colder months.

2. Consider a bay window:

We all know that winter in the Pacific Northwest comes with less sunlight -- so, we also know that we need to improvise. Bay windows are a creative way to increase the natural sunlight without a huge renovation. The nook will give you extra light AND extra space (did somebody say PSL, cozy blanket & book? Sign me up!).

3. Invest in your patio or deck:

Prior to our current home, we lived in the city -- cooped up in an apartment (my husband will roll his eyes to the "cooped up" part, but it's true). One of my favorite things about the new spot (in addition to the fact that our neighbor isn't on the other side of the wall) is our covered deck -- now this girl can enjoy short doses of fresh air during the rainy fall & winter months. If you are like me & have a patio/deck area that you want to improve, call your home improvement contractor in Seattle, WA, and get a new patio door. We offer classic French & contemporary sliding options which are customized to draw light into your home, while still locking in your home's heat & maintaining security.


Don't settle for less in the cold & wet months, make your home comfortable & avoid feeling "cooped up"! Perdue Builders & Supply can surely provide this. We offer a wide range of door, siding, and window options. Combined with years of experience, we are the company you can count on to meet your needs.

Call Perdue Builders & Supply at (425) 398-8609 today, and we’ll be more than happy to help you figure out the best ways to regulate the temperature in your home & soak in the (sometimes limited) sunlight.
