As temperatures continue to drop, now is the time to focus on home improvement projects inside. With The Strait & Lamp Group, there are several things you can do during the winter months to keep your home updated and prepare for the warmer weather ahead.

1. Update interior doors and trim

Dublin Millwork, the only large mill left in central Ohio, provides custom door and trim solutions. We produce and stock a large variety of wood mouldings in all shapes and sizes—from total custom mouldings, to historical reproductions, and standard mouldings.

Dublin Millwork also builds custom wood doors in hardwood oak, birch, poplar, or any species we can order. You’ll work with our master craftsmen to design and create exactly what you need to spruce up your home interior this winter.

2. Replace drafty windows or exterior doors

Drafty windows and exterior doors can cause major heat loss during these cold months and result in higher heating costs. If you’re feeling chilly air near your doors or windows, it could be time to replace them.

Linworth Lumber, located in Worthington, is an Andersen “Circle of Excellence” dealer. We stock a full line of Andersen window and door products, and each order is made to your exact needs. Our expert staff carefully reviews each product to make sure that your new windows and doors are performing to the highest standard—like keeping the cold outside where it belongs!

3. Plan ahead

During the cold months, your time can also be spent planning projects to tackle after the snow melts.

“My recommendation is to start planning this winter for next year’s projects,” says Todd Buxton, General Manager of 5th Ave. Lumber. “Since most of the contractors are so busy, people would want to get on their schedule now.”

5th Ave. Lumber in Columbus has what you need for updating the outside of your home come Spring. You can plan to build a deck or patio with our Timbertech Decking and Railing, or update your curb appeal with one of our six unique exterior trim categories. 

“What sets us apart from other stores is our special order abilities,” Buxton says. “The Strait & Lamp Group has a strong distributor network that can deliver on time and correctly. We also pride ourselves on same day/next day delivery.
