There’s light at the end of this cold winter tunnel! With spring right around the corner, you may be wondering what you can do to prep your home for the warmer weather that lies ahead. Follow this checklist to see what areas you can target around your home and remember Handyman Pro’s maintenance services can get these chores done quickly so you can enjoy the spring sunshine and fresh air.
Examine Roof Shingles
The first thing to do once the colder weather subsides is to examine your roof shingles to see if any were lost or damaged in the winter. The American Society of Home Inspectors recommends that if your home has an older roof covering, you may want to start a budget for a replacement. Shingles that are cracked, buckled or loose, or are missing granules need to be replaced. The summer sun will only damage these further. Our qualified professionals are familiar with all types of roof material and can take care of any repairs or roof replacements your home may need!
Check Your Gutters
When was the last time you checked your gutters or siding? Improper drainage from leaky or loose gutters can lead to water in your basement or crawl space. Fortunately, our team of technicians is well versed in all types of gutter services and can take care of the maintenance for you!
Replace Rotted Siding or Trim
If you notice that any of your siding or trim has started to rot or crumble, it’s time to replace it. Our professionals only install top-grade siding material and make sure it’s done right the first time.
Check Exterior Faucets
Make sure to inspect your exterior hose faucets for freeze damage that can happen during the winter months. If you notice you’re able to stop the flow of water with your thumb/finger over the opening, it’s likely that a pipe is damaged and will need to be replaced. It is also important to check all garden hoses for dry rot!
Recaulk Doors and Windows
It’s important to inspect and recaulk all of your exterior doors and windows annually. This may seem like a daunting task but with Handyman Pros maintenance services we take care of the dirty work for you and even save you money in the process! Caulking your doors and windows annually keeps the humidity out in the summer and cold drafts out in the winter.
