Homeowner Tip – Spring Maintenance

Winter is almost behind us and that means it’s time to inspect your home and prepare for the warmer weather!

Here is a list of a few things you can do to make sure your home is ready for the warm months ahead:

  1. Inspect your roof – Examine the roof for missing or damaged shingles.
  2. Clean the gutters – Inspect for loose or leaking gutters. Make sure they are clear and free of debris.
  3. Inspect the concrete – Take a look for any cracks or movement. You can fill in cracks with a concrete filler or a silicone caulk.
  4. Test your outside faucets – Make sure they do not have damage from the cold temps.
  5. Give your A/C some TLC – Have a qualified heating and cooling contractor clean and service the outside A/C system. Change the interior filter regularly.
  6. Check your deck – Take a look for any water stains, warping or discoloration. Perform necessary maintenance to secure any railings and stairs. If you find any rotting boards, replace them.
  7. Inspect your woodwork – If you have any rails, fences or other wood structures, check for damage and repair as needed.
  8. Check seals around windows and doors – Winter temps can crack or harden caulk. Inspect, repair or replace as needed.
  9. Clean up your landscaping – Get rid of any dead grass and layer fresh topsoil and reseed if needed.
  10. Examine the chimney – Examine the exterior for any damage. Make sure to have the flue cleaned and inspected by a certified chimney sweep.
  11. Check the attic – Take a look for any obstructions over venting, damaged panels and roof flashing leaks. Make sure to wear long sleeves and gloves to protect yourself from insulation.
  12. Replace rotted siding or trim – Replace and paint any trim or siding that has started to rot or fall apart.
