1. Roof Inspection and Maintenance

Winter weather can wreak some visible damage to your roofing, but can also contribute to subtler wear and tear. Make time to inspect your roof carefully for missing shingles or cracks. Be sure to give special attention to pipes, chimneys, and skylights. If too much snow piled up during the season's storms, you might see eroding seals and could be at risk for more costly leaking.


2. Walkway Cleaning

For those who live in snowy climates, it's good to give walkways and patios a thorough clean. Leaving the residue of salt and ice melt behind can do cumulative damage to stone and masonry, so it's best to wash down all walks and building bases to reduce that risk and keep your curb appeal in tip-top shape.

3. Deck Upkeep

After months of disuse, it's time to assess the state of your deck. First, collect any debris that piled up over the winter months. Then, use a deck-cleaning solution to eradicate mold and mildew that might have sprouted as snow created ongoing dampness. If you plan to power wash your deck, always sand it down afterwards to avoid splintering of the wood.

4. Siding/Exterior Wall Inspection

Much like your roofing, siding and exterior walls can start to deteriorate after a season of exposure to harsher elements. Take the opportunity to survey all exteriors for signs of damage, particularly around window and door frames. If you discover minor cracks, use some weather-resistant mending agent to quickly and effectively patch up the problem spots.

Getting ready for spring is exciting, but also requires some simple planning if you want to execute household repairs successfully.
