Inspect your roof and gutters.

Post-winter, you should check your roof for damages like loose shingles or leaks. Prevent water damage to your home by cleaning the gutters and making sure they’re free from debris so they can function properly. Regular upkeep can prevent costly repairs in the future, saving you money in the long run.

Refresh your exterior paint.

A fresh coat of paint can elevate your home’s appearance and serve as a protective barrier against the elements of mother nature. When painting your home, choose a high-quality, weather-resistant paint. This helps to boost curb appeal and acts as a preventative measure against wood rot and moisture penetration.

Service your HVAC system.

Before the intense heat of summer sets in, have a professional service your HVAC system. This ensures it runs efficiently, keeping your energy costs down and preventing emergency breakdowns. A well-maintained HVAC system has a longer lifespan.
