Our homes need as much spring cleaning outside as they do inside. Consider these small repairs and enhancements to get your home ready for summer:
Roof Replacement and Repairs
Inspect your roof and look for missing, curling, or cracked shingles, and damaged flashing around the chimney and skylights. Roof repair is cost-effective and adds curb appeal. Have an older roof cleaned and inspected for flashing and caulking needs. Cleaning and repairing a roof can be dangerous and is best left to professionals. Talk to a certified installer about full roof replacement options.
Let Summer Inside
Before you open those windows to enjoy summer breezes, clean your screens and lubricate door hinges. Check the caulking around windows and doors. You may need to consider window replacement, door replacement, and screen replacement. While you are at it, inspect siding for winter rot. Ask your certified installer about SmartSide Trim and Siding. High-quality upgrades such as window replacement and siding replacement add to your home’s value and curb appeal.
Your summer maintenance checklist should include deck maintenance. Rinse off your deck furniture and consider adding outdoor lighting or built-ins. Wood decks need sealant and fresh stain or a paint job; or you could upgrade to a deck of composite material such as TrexPro. Using the existing substructure to build your deck can make it an affordable solution. Talk to a certified installer about upgrades and maintenance options.
When preparing your home for summer, consider the cost vs. value of repair vs. replacement. The certified installers at HB Home Services can help you decide on the best improvements for your home and budget. Contact us today for a free, no-hassle estimate.
