The past few years have undoubtedly been tough for this country. People are escaping for paradise...and we don't blame them. Welcome to the Sunshine State with bright skies and white sandy beaches. Thousands of people flock to sunny South Florida year after year during the summer to enjoy the beach, sun, and outdoors. This year is no different from the rest. Americans move to Florida in droves. However, many don't think about how the summer can affect their new homes. Have you thought about what you’ll do with your home during the summertime? Weatherization for winter is the norm up north, but in Florida, we must make sure that our homes are safe from the stormy weather and the summer heat.
Southwest Florida, especially Sarasota, is a beautiful place full of plentiful outdoor activities for you and your family. Summer time is beautiful! Keep in mind, even with pristine weather year-round, Florida is no stranger to rainstorms. Always ensure your windows are tightly sealed to weather strong winds and rain. Hurricane proof windows aren't becoming popular due to their strong storm resistant nature, but people are just loving the style. And that's not the only part of your home that can be both storm proof and stylish. Time to get creative!
What about landscaping? Arguably, landscaping is the first thing people notice when pulling up to your new home. This is not only a fun component to keeping your home tidy, but a necessity in many areas. Many homes in Sarasota have amazingly beautiful trees. Flush with foliage and nature. Though sometimes they may be a bit overwhelming. You never want to have too many trees cluttering your yard. You don't want to let nature block the view of your beautiful Florida home. Hire professionals to trim trees or foliage, and remove any unwanted obstructions so neighbors can see your home during the sunny days of summer! Get the job done right. Remember, there's no place like home.
