Use these spring maintenance tips to make sure that your home is in shape for the coming warm weather.

Check your Roof

You may want to get out a ladder and climb up on the roof to see how it held up this winter. If it needs repair, call a roofing company. Additionally, you can spray an algae-stained roof with bleach water to get rid of the stains.

Seal Cracks

Check your windows and doors for cracks that will allow cool indoor air to escape to the outside. You can seal up cracks with caulk and replace weatherstripping around all of your doors.

HVAC Maintenance

You should call the HVAC company, and make an appointment for a maintenance visit.  This appointment will have your air conditioner working smoothly and efficiently before the dog days of summer hit.

Drain Your Hot Water Heater

If you have hard water, you may want to drain the tank. This will rinse out any mineral deposits that can ruin your heating element.

Repair Concrete and Asphalt

If you patch cracks in your paving while they are small, they won’t grow larger and compromise the integrity of your driveway, patio, or sidewalk. You can use cement repair kits, or for larger holes, you can call a professional.

Update Important Paperwork

Is your termite contract coming up for renewal? Has it been awhile since your homeowners insurance was updated? You may want to take a look at these recurring expenses to make sure that you are getting the best value for your money and that you have the right coverage for your needs.
