Spring’s right around the corner, so it’ll soon be time to take care of those jobs that you may have put off in the fall. Here’s a checklist that will help you protect the future health of your home:
[ ] Roof – Repair missing or cracked shingles.
[ ] Outdoor Wiring – Check thoroughly for wear and tear.
[ ] Deck/Patio – Check for safety hazards such as loose railings and rotten boards.
[ ] Foundation – Inspect interior and exterior walls for cracks and signs of moisture.
[ ] Gutters – Clean gutters/downspouts and make sure they direct water away from your home.
[ ] Safety – Inspect smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and review your family’s fire escape plan.
[ ] Landscaping – Cut back trees/bushes that touch the house and remove any dead branches.
They say “home is where the heart is” so it’s important to keep your home healthy.
Regular maintenance will save you both time and money in the long run, and you’ll also be able to relax come summer knowing that everything’s been taken care of.
