It’s Time For Spring Maintenance
Tuesday Apr 12th, 2022
It’s been a long cold winter, now that the weather is getting a bit warmer it’s time to start thinking about spring maintenance. After listening to the experts we’ve created a checklist that you can use year after year to make sure that your home stays in tip top shape.
Clean your gutters and downspouts. Making sure your gutters are cleared out early in the season will protect your home from damage by spring rains. Remove any debris, repair any holes & make sure the downspouts are clear.
Check the roof. Look for damage to shingles, if they are torn, missing or curled, also check for shingles that have missing granules.
Inspect the foundation. Complete a search of the exterior of your home, including the foundation, siding and brickwork. You are looking for cracks and leaks.
Clean & seal any decks & fences, don’t forget about railings, trellises, pergolas, and other outdoor structures. If rain beads on the surfaces they still have protection, if not it’s time to reseal them.
HVAC system: You should be changing filters at least once a season and having the system serviced at the beginning of the season is recommended.
Driveways & paths: After all the freezing and thawing in the winter, now’s a good time to patch any damaged areas.
Windows & Doors: Check to make sure that screens are installed and in good shape and that the outside seals are still holding.
Now that you’ve dealt with your spring maintenance it’s time to sit back and relax.
