With winter departed this is a great time for a home maintenance check-up. To help you get started here’s the top three priority areas around your home that need inspection.
Clean Gutters and Downspouts
After the frost of the season you should have your gutters and downspouts cleaned, and repaired if necessary. Gutters and downspouts should be clean and running free so that they can effectively move water away from the house.
Check the Air-conditioning & HVAC
To maximize the life of your cooling system and ensure it runs as efficiently as possible this summer, inspect the filters and replace if necessary. It’s prudent to hire a licensed professional to service your equipment before the start of summer.
Inspect the Roof
The winter season can take a toll on your roof. When winter departs, start by doing a simple visual inspection of your roof. You’ll be looking for anything obvious, like missing or damaged shingles. Call a professional roofer if you see anything that needs a closer inspection or repair.
This is the perfect time of year to assess your home for any damages that might have happened over winter.
