Spring Cleaning: A Guide to Home Exterior Maintenance

Spring has nearly arrived! And with this new season comes a sensation of starting fresh. It’s an excellent opportunity to reflect on how the year has gone so far, and if there are any changes we would like to implement.

One step we would recommend is upping your maintenance routine for the exterior of your home. The better care you provide, the longer it will last!

🔲 Gutters

Let’s start with the gutters. Do you know the phrase “April showers bring May flowers”? Well, all of those showers are going to put your gutters through the wringer. Make sure they’re ready for more rain by cleaning them out of all debris, branches, leaves, and trash. This will allow water to flow freely from your roof to the ground with minimal opportunity for water damage along the way.

🔲 Siding

The purpose of siding isn’t just for looks; it also protects your home from having too much contact with water which could cause damage. But if you have damaged siding, then water could find its way in, causing rot or even mold growth.

Protect your siding and your home with regular inspections and maintenance and repair it when necessary.

🔲 Roof

Your roof is one of the most important pieces of your house, it protects the interior of your home from all of the elements, but it can only do its job if it’s well maintained. We recommend getting your roof inspected at least once a year so that a professional can see if there’s any damage and if there is, repair it as soon as possible.
