With the spring season in full swing, it’s high time for homeowners to ensure that their home is in prime condition to welcome the season. Here’s a 2021 spring home maintenance checklist for you to follow to get your roof into great shape.
- Deck and Landscaping
Inspect your deck for signs of water stains and warping as well as deformed nails. Your stairs and railings should also stay secured. If you notice any damaged or rotting boards, have them replaced immediately. Make sure that you trim your landscaping, and clean off any waste and debris if needed.
Take extra caution when going up onto your roof using a ladder. Check your roof for signs of winter damage like cracked or loose shingles. If you find any signs of damage or even gaps on your roof, call your roof replacement company to address these issues properly. Do not attempt to repair the issue on your own since you might do more harm than good, especially if you lack the proper tools and training.
- Attic and Basement
Just like your decking, check your attic and basement for any signs of water stains, leaks and mold growth. Ensure that there is enough ventilation in these areas to prevent mold growth and further water damage. If you have a sump pump installed in your basement, double check to see if it’s functioning properly.
Make sure that your windows operate normally to allow in natural light and ventilation to help with your home’s energy efficiency. This will also help improve your home’s air quality. Also, make sure that you thoroughly clean and inspect your windows for damage so that they can be repaired before damage can get worse.
