As homeowners begin thinking about what projects to tackle to welcome Spring, consider giving your home a check up this month. Conducting the following home maintenance projects will help your house operate more efficiently and increase its curb appeal:
- Roofs and gutters: The sun’s heat can quickly damage a roof’s shingles. If you haven’t inspected your roof in several years, you should call Carl’s to assess the condition of your home’s roof. It is also important to clean out leaves and other debris that may have collected in gutters and downspouts. Make sure the gutters are securely attached and haven’t sprung any leaks. Also, check that the downspouts are properly positioned to direct water away from your home’s foundation.
- Seal the deck: If you have a wood deck, inspect the wood for any stains, discolorations, or warping. If you find any, then it may be time to reseal the deck. To verify that your old application still works, pour some water onto the dry deck and check to see that it beads up. Check for any sharp edges, splintered wood, or rotting wood. Also look for rusting nails or any nails that are coming out or weakening their connections. And be sure to check the railings and stairs to make sure they are secure and not wobbly.
