Home Maintenance Tips for Spring

 In Blog

 

1) Inspect Brickwork and Stucco

    Check for chipping, deteriorated mortar, and unsightly deposits.

2)  Replace Rotted Siding and Trim; Paint As Needed

Hire a professional to tackle siding maintenance.

3)  Clean Gutters and Downspouts

Look for sags and dips.

4) Inspect the Roof

Check for damaged shingles, which can make your roof susceptible to leaks.

5) Get a Chimney Check-Up

Hire a pro that can quickly check for cracks or leaks.

6) Don’t Overlook the Attic

Check for proper ventilation, obstructions, and leaks.

7) Check  Heat/Air Unit; Change Batteries in Detectors

Change filters and clean the air purifier, but leave the rest to the pros.

8) Prune Landscaping and Create Good Drainage

Maintain your plants and shrubs to prevent soil erosion.

10) Take a look at Concrete

Seal your driveway, power wash your patio, and have a pro service your pool.

11)  Weatherproof Windows and Doors

Check all caulk lines and weather stripping; replace screens.

12) Don’t forget the Sump Pump

Install a battery backup pump as insurance against water damage.

Remember, your home is most likely the largest investment you will ever make!  Keeping up with routine maintenance is important to get the biggest return on your investment.  You might even consider having a home inspection done once a year or every other year.  You can keep the records on file and you have a good understanding of what is going on with your home.  You take your car to get a tune-up – do the same for your home!
