April Preventative Home Maintenance Tips

Welcome April!!!!!!

Time to come out of the house and imagine what you can build or grow in your yard.  Time to enjoy the increasing temperatures, and take the covers off of outdoor furniture and those grills.  This is also a great time to examine the exterior of your home and your property to see what damage winter and time may have done.  Use the tips below to get your home on the right foot this month so it can have a prosperous spring and summer season.

1)Inspect your homes exterior, checking for cracking paint/stucco, caulk gaps around windows and doors, foundation cracking and that vent covers are secure and not damaged or off.

2)Inspect all screens on windows and doors for tearing or bending.  Also inspect attic venting for any damage.

3)  Clean window screens. Ensure you pull screens off and place them on a flat surface before doing this.

4)  Inspect all outdoor structures such as decks, porches, patios and gazebos.  use a small Awl to probe wood for soft spots.  Also check window sills.  Make note of your findings to replace when weather is improved.

5)  Prepare for grilling season by inspecting gas grills.  Clean grill plates with brass bristled brush and soapy water.  Remove accumulated grease from lava rocks or burners.

6)  Inspect garden hoses for leaks, replace washers and temporarily repair any found leaks.  Don’t keep hose connected to spigots until the fear of frost is over.
