Spring is just around the corner and good planning and maintenance in spring will create less work and more enjoyment in summer. The outside of your home has been exposed to the elements all winter season. Inspect the following:
Foundation- Look for cracks that may have developed during the winter.
Siding- Clean the siding with a pressure-washer to remove/prevent mold growth.
Landscape- Trim back shrubs, and cut down tree limbs that could cause damage.
Gutters- Clean out debris. A clogged gutter sends a cascade of water down the side of your house, saturating your foundation.
Deck- Repair any loose or warped boards. Apply a wood preserver.
Roof- Have your roof inspected to ensure you won’t experience leaks during those April showers.
