Alaska is a very harsh place to live. Everything from snow, rain, high winds and high temperatures must be dealt with at some point. Some places in Alaska never see the night for months at a time! Contracting work in Alaska must take all these factors into account when performing a home improvement project. Make sure you keep the following points in mind when having any work done on your home:

  • When roof framing work is being done, make sure that local building codes are followed so that your roof can withstand the minimum snow load for your area.
  • Insulation is very important in Alaska - exterior walls, windows, doors, roofs, and basements must all be properly insulated to keep energy costs down.
  • A sump pump should always be installed in any room of the house underneath ground level to prevent flooding during the rainy season.
  • Materials costs will be higher here than the rest of the country due to the longer commute (and extra fuel costs) to bring items to this part of the country.
