Spring Home Improvement Projects
For homeowners, spring time is the time of the year to make a checklist of home maintenance projects in preparation for the warm weather. Before you start making your list, here’s a list of our own spring home improvement projects.
Check Your Gutters
Be sure to take a look at your gutters this spring, a functioning gutter system is vital for water transfer and drainage, and for the safety of the structure of your home. If you need to do a new gutter installation, it’s a pretty simple process. There are two basic types of gutters, the k-style and half-round, if you’re replacing your gutters, make sure to arrange a new system the same way the old one had been.
Upgrade Your Deck
Decks are sometimes hard to maintain because of its constant exposure to outside elements. If you want to enjoy your deck this summer, make sure to follow the proper maintenance it requires. Check the structure and frame as the snowy and rainy months could have damaged the deck. Look for cracks or rotten decking boards and loose nails. Check underneath for deterioration, and get started sooner rather than later.
Inspect Your Air Conditioner
Maintaining your air conditioner will save you money and expand the units lifespan. It’s a good idea to have a contractor do these pre-season check-ups and to schedule an appointment early this spring.
Typical maintenance includes:
- Check the thermostat settings
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Check and inspect the condensate drain
- Check the controls of the system
Replace Your Siding
Siding is very important in protecting your home from harsh elements, and also adds value to your home. Replacing your siding is a major upgrade to your homes appearance, but is not always an easy decision to make. There are various siding options to choose from, each having their own benefits. No matter what siding material you choose, consider the reliability, ongoing maintenance, and cost.
Take a Look at Your Roof
Your roof is the most important element of your house, be sure to check your roof this spring for any cracked shingles or repairs it may need including swapping singles and fixing curled corners. If you find a problem no matter how small be sure to fix it right away as it could potentially turn into a bigger issue later on.
