Your spring home maintenance checklist:
👉 Clean gutters and downspouts. After the last frost has passed, it’s important to have your gutters and downspouts cleaned and repaired.
👉 Reseal exterior woodwork. Wood decks, fences, railings, trellises, pergolas and other outdoor structures will last longer and stay in better condition if they’re stained or resealed every year or two.
👉 Check for signs of termites. Beginning in March and going through May or June, be on the lookout for these winged insects.
👉 Inspect roof. Winter storms can take quite a toll on the roof. When spring arrives, start by making a simple visual inspection of your roof.
👉 Paint exterior. If you’re planning to repaint your home’s exterior this year, spring is a good time to set it up.
👉 Inspect driveways and paths. Freezing and thawing is rough on concrete, asphalt and other hardscaping materials. Take a walk around your property to look for damage to walkways, paths and driveways, and schedule repairs as needed.
👉 Check sprinkler and irrigation systems. Checking your sprinklers or irrigation systems in the spring can save water – and save your plants.
👉 Prevent mosquitoes. The best way to prevent mosquitos around your home is simply by getting rid of any standing water.
👉 Check screen doors and windows. Screens are designed to let the breeze flow in and keep bugs out – but they can only do their job if they’re free from holes and tears.
👉 Schedule air-conditioning service. To get the longest life out of your cooling system and keep it running as efficiently as possible, change the filters at least once each season, and hire a licensed professional to service the equipment before the start of summer. #spring #springtime #homerepairs #homerepair #repairs #homemaintenance #springrepairs #seasonalupdates #realtor #realestate #realtortips #realtorhacks #realestateagent
