6 Spring Home Maintenance Tips
With warmer weather arriving, it’s time to venture out and see what spring home maintenance projects need tackling. Everybody’s checklist is different but some common maintenance issues include:
Check the roof. Snowload and ice dams can wreak havoc on singles and compromise the underlayment – the layer that protects your home below. Call a licensed roofing contractor near you to walk the roof and do an inspection.
Look at the driveway. Freezing and thawing can cause concrete to heave and crack, wearing surfaces out faster. Salt can degrade cooncrete.
Inspect siding. Now’s the time to check those hardware store coupon codes for paint, pressure washer rental and spackle to treat cracks.
And that’s only the beginning. before you freshen up your home exterior, look deeper at the bones and make needed repairs. Early home maintenance is the key to stopping small problems from turning into big ones.
