Maintenance Repairs

As the weather warms up and nature blooms, it's time to shake off the winter blues and start thinking about sprucing up your home for the spring and summer seasons. With longer days and more sunlight, now is the perfect opportunity to tackle those essential home maintenance repairs to keep your living space in top shape.

Here are 10 tasks you should consider adding to your spring and summer home maintenance checklist:


clean debris from gutters
  1. Inspect and Clean Gutters: After the winter thaw, gutters can become clogged with debris such as leaves, twigs, and even nests. Clean them out thoroughly to ensure proper drainage and prevent water damage to your roof and foundation.

  2. Check Roof for Damage: Winter storms can take a toll on your roof. Inspect for missing or damaged shingles, and look out for signs of leaks or water stains in your attic or ceiling. Think its time for a new roof? Check out our Roofing Services

Clean or replace filters, check for leaks, and ensure all components are functioning efficiently. Not sure who to call?

5. Seal Windows and Doors: Inspect the seals around windows and doors for cracks or gaps that could let warm air in and cool air out. Seal any leaks with weatherstripping or caulk to improve energy efficiency and lower utility bills. Think its time for a replacement?

6. Clean and Repair Outdoor Spaces: Spruce up your outdoor living areas by cleaning patio furniture, sweeping decks and patios, and power washing surfaces. Check for any loose boards or nails that may need to be repaired.

7. Inspect and Service Lawn Equipment: Get your lawn mower, trimmer, and other gardening tools ready for the season. Sharpen blades, change oil, and replace spark plugs as needed to ensure they're in good working condition.

8. Check Exterior Paint and Siding: Inspect the exterior of your home for any signs of peeling paint or damaged siding. Repaint or repair as necessary to protect against moisture and prolong the life of your home's exterior. We also offer Siding Services.

9. Clean and Maintain Outdoor Drainage Systems: Remove debris from outdoor drains, gutters, and downspouts to prevent water buildup and potential flooding during summer storms.

10. Inspect and Clean Chimney and Fireplace: If you have a fireplace, spring is a good time to have it inspected and cleaned by a professional chimney sweep. Remove any built-up creosote and ensure the damper is functioning properly. Not sure who to call? We can offer professional recommendations, just give us a call.
