It’s finally Spring!! Your house is as glad to see it as we are. Winter can be hard on your home. Here are a few things you may need to check out:

Look for ceiling stains
If you find any, you may have a leak. Repair the leak and then seal the stain with primer and then add one or two coats of paint.

Clean out your gutters
Leaves can be too heavy to move through the gutter and ice dams can break your gutters. Make sure they are cleared out and not leaking.

Caulk any leak-prone areas
Cold and warmth cause openings that let the rain come in. Check the windows and corners of the house where the siding joins.

Check storm doors and screens
Check for holes in the screen and bent or broken hinges.

The driveway may need to be resealed
If you see a lot of cracks, have it sealed to prevent them from spreading.

The deck may need to be resealed as well
If it’s looking worn, pressure-wash and reseal it.

Take a look at your fence
See if there are any rotted areas that need to be repaired or replaced.

Have your roof inspected
Make sure the roof has come through the winter in good shape. Make sure the shingles are in good shape and that none of them or missing.
