Clear out leaves, branches, and other debris from gutters and downspouts. Run a hose on the roof to check for leaks in the gutter; dry the area before caulking or using epoxy to fix any leaks.
Pressure washing your siding can keep mold from growing on the side of your home. If you need to touch up areas with paint, make sure to sand and prime the area before painting.
If you have old screens lying around unused, use those to repair holes in your door or window screens. If you need to replace the entire screen, save the damaged screen to patch up holes next year!
Check for leaky valves, malfunctioning sprinkler heads, or otherwise defective components.
Trim all overgrown vegetation and bushes away from structures. When plants are allowed to grow freely against your home, it can wear away the paint causing costly repairs. Keeping branches and leaves away from your home can save money.
Ensure everything is working properly and clean out any residue from the winter.
Check for heaving, cracking, or deterioration. If you are experiencing foundation problems, contact a foundation professional.
