This has been one of the more mild winters on record in the New England area and it is hard to believe but warmer weather and spring are right around the corner. The clocks get moved forward next weekend and the first day of spring in on March 19th. With spring comes more time spent outside and it also brings with it a very popular time of the year that homeowners work on their house. From home remodels, home maintenance and spring cleaning, here are a few of the more important things you should tackle this spring.
1. Gutter and Downspout Cleaning:
Making sure that your gutters and downspouts get cleaned before the spring rains hit is very important. Clogged gutters and downspouts during the spring can cause damage to your roof, gutter system and even the foundation of your home.
2. Roof Inspection:
Winter storms can take their toll on any roof. When spring arrives, knowing if any damage has occurred on your roof is absolutely essential. It’s very popular during winter storms that shingles go missing, and pipes get damaged.
3. Paint Job:
A fresh coat of paint on your house is something that cedar siding homeowners have to look into once in a while. The spring time is the perfect time of the year to look into it. If you’re sick of painting your siding so often and you think you’re in need of new siding, look into replacing it with fiber cement or vinyl.
4. Inspect Driveways & Paths:
With all the water freezing and thawing during the winter, driveways and walkways are very susceptible to becoming damaged. Walk around your property and look for any areas that need to be patched up, repaired or replaced entirely.
5. Check Screen Doors & Windows:
It’s time to get your screen doors and windows installed back into your home. As you do so, make sure there are no holes or tears.
