Spring Maintenance Checklist
Spring is a great time to tackle outdoor maintenance projects. Your property takes a beating during the winter months due to storms, snow, ice, and salt. Now it is time to go outside and give your property the care it needs by going over the below tips.
Before turning on your ac you should replace the filters, clean the vents to ensure your unit is ready for the warm season. Dirty filters shorten the life of your unit and cost you more money in electricity and repair bills.
Clean Gutters and Downspouts
After the winter has passed it is important to get the gutters cleared of debris and cleaned. Clogged gutters can cause damage to the roof, eves, and exterior of the property. Correctly installed downspouts divert water away from the house and keep the foundation safe.
Reseal exterior woodwork - Door and Windows
Ice, salt, and winter storms take a toll on the exterior woodwork. Experts recommend resealing the exterior doors and window trims every other year to protect your woodwork.
Inspect exterior stairs and walkways
Constant freezing and thawing cause concrete and asphalt to crack. Asphalt is easy to repair but concrete might require complete replacement if neglected. Sealing concrete every other year will keep your outdoor walkway and stairs in good condition for years to come.
