Spring Maintenance Checklist


Spring is a time for warmer weather, brighter days, and new life after a dark and dreary winter. From cleaning your windows to inspecting your roof, here’s how you can get your home in tip-top shape so you can enjoy the lazy summer ahead!

Check the Roof

From heavy snow to rough winds, the winter weather could have done a real number on your roof. Take a walk around your home and check your roof for damaged, loose, or missing shingles, sagging fascia, or loose gutters. Any damage like that will need to be repaired.

Clean the Gutters

April showers bring May flowers…and flooding issues if you have dirty gutters. Take a Saturday to clean out your gutters and rid them of any leaves, twigs, or other debris that may clog them. You should also inspect your downspouts for obstructions  and consider extending them.

Clean Your Windows

Wipe down the insides and outsides of your windows to get them sparklingly enough to let the spring sunshine in. While you’re at it, you should always check for any cracks or drafts in your current windows and consider replacing them with better-insulated models.

Wash Your Siding

If your home’s siding is covered in dirt or other grime, wash it off using soap, water, and a gentle scrub brush. This is especially important to do if you were using ice-melting salt around your home, as it can also eat away at your siding.

Trim Your Landscaping

Your shrubbery will need some grooming once the spring weather lets them grow their leaves back again. You should also seed your lawn so it grows full and green, and add soil to any areas where it was depleted over winter.
