3 Simple Exterior Home Maintenance Tips

Learn how to care for the exterior of your home this spring!

It is the middle of April and weather is getting nicer and nicer, so it is the perfect time to do some well-needed spring cleaning.  You should be going around your home and inspecting all of your features to see if they are working properly.  Make sure to perform some seasonal maintenance to the outside of your home, such as your roof and gutters, especially since it is the first thing people see as they enter your property.  Luckily, there are few simple tasks you can complete to get the exterior of your home ready for spring.

Clean Your Gutters

While it is very important to clean your gutters in the fall, it is equally important to do so in the spring.  Since it rains frequently in the spring, make sure that your gutters are free of any debris or leaves. The last thing you want is your gutters to overflow and water to spill over on to the side of your home, potentially damaging your siding.  You want to inspect your gutters for cracking or structural damage and make the necessary repairs.

Trim Your Trees and Shrubs

If you have one or more trees on your property, it is crucial that you are trimming their branches during the spring.  You want to avoid any branches hanging over your home or growing right into your siding. No one wants to deal with branches breaking through their roof during a rainstorm.  You want to trim any plants or shrubs so that they do grow on and attach to your siding.

Inspect Roofing and Siding

One of the most important elements of exterior home maintenance is roof and siding inspection.  You want to make sure that your roof and siding are looking good and structurally sound. You should check for any crack or any other types of damage so that you can fix the issue immediately.
