Spring Home Maintenance

The days are getting longer, and the weather is finally starting to warm up a bit! Now is a great time to start tackling some home projects. Here are some tasks around the house that are great to do in the spring:

Clean and repair gutters and downspouts.

Spring is the perfect time to have your gutters and downspouts cleaned and repaired.

Inspect your roof.

Winter is hard on roofs and shingles. Spring is the perfect time to do a quick visual inspection to make sure your roof is good to go.

Check your sprinkler and irrigation systems.

Not only can doing a quick check make sure your plants are good for spring, but it can also save you money if there are leaks.

Schedule a HVAC (air-conditioning) service.

Winter is hard on your HVAC system and before summer is the perfect time to make sure everything is functioning efficiently.

Reseal exterior woodwork.

Spring is a great time to reseal and make any needed repairs to wood decks, fences, railing, pergolas, or other wooden outdoor structures.

Inspect driveways and paths.

The freeze-thaw cycle can damage asphalt, concrete, and other hardscaping materials. While asphalt can most of the times be patched, damaged concrete may need to be replaced entirely.

Be on the lookout for termites.

Protect your investment in your house and if see winged insects flying out of a hole in the woodwork, call a pest control company to come and address immediately.

Review your screen windows and doors.

Even though screens are designed to let air flow in while keeping bugs out, they only work if they don’t have holes and tears. Take time to review your screens and make sure they are free from holes and tears.
