Your home will likely be the largest investment of your lifetime. That is why it is so important to work on maintaining its condition and looks over the years so that you can be the proud homeowner you were when you first took possession of the keys. Your home’s exterior takes a beating from the weather and the sun. Be mindful of these tips to keep your place looking its best and lasting a lifetime.
Drainage check: The heavy rains should not leave large puddles around your home. If you find that standing water is accumulating close to your house, then it is time to find out what the issue is that is behind this. Take time to inspect your gutters and check if they are clogged or damaged. If you need a professional eye and expertise, our team is happy to help.
Careful review: It is important to really look at your home as the seasons change. Look for chipping paint, damaged siding, cracked windows, or dented gutters. Depending on what you find, it may be time for some home exterior projects.
Roof access: Crawling around on your roof is not for the everyday homeowner and best left for professionals, but that does not mean that you cannot keep a close eye on your roof. Grab a pair of binoculars and carefully survey your home’s roof for anything different or visible damage.
Window well walk: Your window wells can collect all sorts of stuff from animals to garbage. Make it part of your routine to check out these areas when you mow or do yard work as a way to keep them clear and clean.
Vent prevention: Think about how many loads of laundry are done at your home. Now, go outside and inspect your outside dryer vent. Clogs can cause serious problems. When your dryer is running, you should be able to smell the scent of fresh laundry if there are not any blockages.
Windows under the microscope: Take the time to look at the condition of your windows. While cracks in glass are easy to spot, issues with weather stripping will not jump out as easily. Taking a look at your screens is also important. Tears and holes can let in insects during the warmer months.
