Spring Prep Tips for Homeowners

Spring is here! We have some tips for you to keep in mind when thinking of ways to maintain and improve your homes.

  1. Inspect Your Roof: Check for any winter damage, loose or missing shingles, and clear out debris. Repair or replace damaged shingles as needed.
  2. Clean Gutters and Downspouts: Remove leaves, twigs, and other debris from gutters and downspouts to ensure proper drainage and prevent water damage.
  3. Service Your HVAC System: Schedule a professional inspection and maintenance for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. This helps ensure efficient operation and can extend the lifespan of your equipment.
  4. Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors: Check and replace batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Test each unit to ensure they are functioning correctly.
  5. Prune Trees and Shrubs: Trim overgrown branches and remove dead or damaged vegetation. This helps promote healthy growth and prevents potential hazards.
  6. Check and Clean Windows: Clean both the interior and exterior of windows. Inspect for any damage or gaps in seals. Consider re-caulking or adding weatherstripping as needed.
  7. Fertilize Your Lawn: Apply fertilizer to promote healthy grass growth. Fill in any bare patches with grass seed and consider aerating the soil for better nutrient absorption.
  8. Inspect and Clean Outdoor Furniture: Check your outdoor furniture for any damage and clean it thoroughly. Consider applying a fresh coat of paint or sealant if necessary.
