Summer Home Maintenance Tips

22 Jun

Patch or Replace Your Asphalt Driveway
Asphalt and sealer need warm temperatures (above 50 degrees Fahrenheit) for proper application.

Clean and Inspect Siding
Power wash and inspect siding. Have siding replaced, if necessary, during the warm summer months.

Maintain Decking
Power wash, repair, refinish and seal decks. Check for protruding nails and repair.

Complete Painting Projects
Summer is a good time for exterior and interior painting projects. The warm temperatures allow for ventilation and quick drying times.

Inspect for Termites
Inspect the basement, attic, and eaves for termites, carpenter ants, bees, wasps and hornets. Check for any signs of wood damage.

Prepare Your Home for Vacation

Turn off the two faucets leading to your washing machine to prevent hose bursts, or if possible, turn off the main water supply. Unplug minor appliances. Make sure all windows and doors are closed and locked. Have a trusted neighbor collect mail and newspapers.
