Top 4 Spring Maintenance Tips for a Better Home

Winter weather can be harsh on your home. Snow and cold temperatures can cause wear and tear to the siding, roofing and other parts of the house. Performing home maintenance this spring can prevent costly repair projects for the rest of the year. Handyman Connection® of Boise will help you by providing a spring maintenance checklist.

  1. Check Your Roof for Damage – You can use a pair of binoculars to scan your roof for warning signs like missing shingles or cracked flashings. Call a professional, and ask for your roof to be inspected if you spot any damage. You don’t want to leave any small leaks unattended because small leaks can cause tremendous damage given enough time.

  1. Clean Your Gutters – Your gutters protect the rest of your home by catching rainwater and redirecting it into your downspouts. Clogged gutters will overflow and cause damage to your foundation, siding and landscaping. Ask a professional to clean your gutters, and keep your gutter system in good shape before the spring rains arrive.

  1. Replace Your HVAC Filters – Replace your HVAC filters more than once a year; spring is a good time to do it. Dirty air filters can overwork your HVAC system and cause it to consume more energy. Dirty filters can also reduce your home’s indoor air quality, make your interior feel less comfortable and increase your energy bills.

  1. Repair and Clean Your Window Screens – You can reduce your energy bills in summer by cracking open your windows at night. This, however, requires clean window screens. Clean and repair your window screens this spring by patching small holes and gently scrubbing the screen with soapy water.
