Spring is the best times for home maintenance repairs. An inspection should be done once or twice a year for things like rotting wood, peeling paint, mold growth and leaky windows. Managing these areas will not only make your home look and feel nicer, but will also add to the value of your home.
To keep your home energy-efficient while looking well-maintained, inspect these four areas of your home this spring and make the needed repairs before summer.
- Check siding, bricks, wood, decks, fences, driveways and other surfaces for dirt, grime, mold and mildew. Clean these surfaces by pressure-washing each area thoroughly.
- Inspect your windows and doors for leaky air spaces. Windows and doors often separate from the frame in cold weather, decreasing the energy-efficiency of the home. You can fix this problem by caulking cracks around doors and windows (on the exterior) and by replacing weather stripping.
- Check your deck and other wood surfaces for decay, deterioration and splintering. Repair and reseal your deck to help protect the wood throughout the summer months.
- Look for cracked, fading or peeling paint. Keeping your paint fresh will help make your home look great and will keep your home well-protected from the elements.
