When you say “spring chores,” it’s likely that you think about all of the tasks you need to do inside your home. However, the exterior of your home needs a little TLC, too!
These following three tasks count as some of the most important ones you can do to maintain your home and it’s value. They’re practical and add to your home’s curbside appeal to boot!
1. Fix the Roof
Did your roof spring a leak over the winter? Did some shingles come undone? Is your roof, in general, starting to look a bit saggy? Then, once the spring thaw hits, it’s time to fix the roof!
As USA Today points out, leaks and other roof problems lead to even bigger problems (like mold or pests) and if left unchecked, will destroy your home and knock down its value.
2. Clean the Gutters
Each season, your gutters can easily collect twigs, leaves, and other debris, which can lead to drainage issues when it rains. If water has nowhere to go, it will fall down the side of your home. Any leftover or standing water can cause some serious mold and pest problems as well!
3. Take Care of the Siding
The siding on your home can take a serious beating during the winter months. From salt and sand to mud and other organic matter, you’ll want to get rid of the gunk. Depending on your siding, a hose or power washer can help tidy things up!
