 Summertime in South Florida is one of the most joyous times of year anywhere in the world. Hundreds of thousands of tourists’ flock to Southwest Florida each and every year to bring their families for summer vacation. Americans are also uprooting their families and starting new lives here in the Sunshine State each day. If you’ve thought about moving here, have you thought about what you’ll do with your home during the summertime? Not only are there certain weatherizing tips that should be done during the summer season, but summer is a great time to have your home as beautiful as possible for the sunny days and passerbys.

 Make sure your windows are up to date. With the summer comes fun outdoor activities and the beach. However, sometimes we do get a bit of rain during that time. Always ensure your windows are tightly sealed to weather strong winds and rain. Hurricane proof windows are not only safe but now they are becoming quite stylish in Southwest Florida.

 Ensure that your doors are looking as fresh as they can be for the summertime! Make sure the front door is freshly painted. Try an accent color to switch it up. Have some fun with it. Secondly, similar to the windows, make sure that your doors are tightly sealed with outdoor caulk and a weatherization strip. The rain can be a bully to doors too!

 Make sure that your landscaping is in tip top shape. First and foremost: trees. Ever have too many trees cluttering your yard and even blocking the beautiful view? Have a tree-trimmer or landscaper trim it down or remove them completely. Unless the trees are well maintained they can become an eye sore. Lastly, trees can be a nuisance during hazardous weather, as well.
