What are some spring maintenance tips?
Clean your gutters and downspouts of debris. Make sure they are clear at the ground also. Extend downspouts as far away from the house as possible. Check around the foundation for ground that settled over the winter-be sure the water will drain away from the house. Clean up any outside debris around your furnace vents, dryer vents, AC unit and meters. Look for shingle damage along the edges of your roof and up the valleys from any ice dams from last winter. While you’re up there, check your soffit and fascia for any signs of deterioration. Clean off outside light fixtures and any outside outlets. Check the hose bibbs inside and out, to make sure they will function properly when you need them. Make the repairs as soon as possible or make an appointment to have someone do them for you. Little problems are much less expensive to fix than BIG ones.
