Being in the northeast, Connecticut residents know all too well the weather conditions being in this part of the country brings. Biting cold winters, scorching humid summers and, as the latest one shows with Hurricane Sandy, always dangerous hurricane seasons. Use the following list to plan your home improvement projects properly for the hazards of living in Connecticut:

  • Roofs should be adequately framed with structural supports including lateral bracing and hurricane clips to withstand heavy snow loads and strong winds.
  • If you live within ten miles of the coast, consider replacing all glass exposed to the elements with either laminated or tempered glass. These glass options are designed to withstand hurricane force winds and also improve the insulating properties of either the window or door as well.
  • During the rainy season, sump pumps should be installed in all rooms below ground level and checked regularly for proper operation.
  • Proper insulation techniques can reduce your heating and cooling costs significantly. Make sure that your attic is properly insulated along with all windows and doors being adequately weatherstripped.
