Home Maintenance: What To Do Now That Spring Is Here

Finally, springtime is here, so its time to get outside and enjoy the warm weather. While your outside for the first few days of the spring, it is also an excellent time to inspect the outside of your home to make sure that the nasty winter weather did not do any damage to your exterior. We have listed some things that are must do during your spring cleaning. The exterior of your home needs attention too.

  • Clean & Inspect Your Exterior Windows
    • First, you want to clean your exterior windows, so you let the sunshine through your windows. Of course, you want to be careful when cleaning your windows, and make sure any ladders that you may use are secure and in working order. You will be shocked to see how dirty your windows became during the winter time. While you are cleaning them, you also need to inspect your windows for any damage that ice, rain, snow or hail may have caused. If you notice any damage to your window seals, or the window itself, be sure to give us a call so we can evaluate the damage and let you know if they may need to be replaced.
  • Clean & Inspect Your Siding
    • Freezing temperatures, rain, snow, sleet, and hail can all damage your siding. In fact, that is the reason to have siding, to protect your home. Unfortunately, we live in an area that has a very nasty winter season, especially if you live in an area that has a lot of trees. Branches and tree limbs can freeze and break off, or simply be blown off of a tree and into your siding, damaging it. Just like your windows, you will be surprised to see how dirty your siding has become over the winter. When you do decide to clean your siding, be ready to be cleaning for several hours as your siding may not look dirty from a distance. However, once you wipe one piece of siding, you will see how dirty it actually is! Again, while you are cleaning, make sure to look for damaged pieces of the siding as you will want to get that replaced as soon as possible.
