There are many things that can be done at this time of year to keep your home safe, up to date, and well maintained. Here are 7 ideas that can be done during summertime.
1. Pressure Wash and Paint as Needed:
Summertime is the best time of the year for pressure washing and painting as needed. If you have wood repairs to make on your home that will need to be sealed or painted, you will want to make time for that now.
2. Roof Painting:
If it’s roof painting, summertime is the perfect time for that!
3. Winter Repair List:
Now is the time to get out the list of repairs that accumulated over the winter for the exterior of the home. You may even have some tax refund money that you can use for those repairs!
4. Storm Preparedness for Winter Time:
Summertime is the time to think about installing power back up systems. If you are in need of a generator, buy one now. There is no shortage this time of year (unless a major storm hits.) You may even be able to find price specials on them to make them more affordable.
5. Gutter Cleaning:
This is a perfect time to clean out the leaves in your gutters before fall comes and debris starts to accumulate again.
6. Tree Maintenance:
Summertime is also the time of the year to start planning for tree removal if you need to do tree removal. Plan ahead, get estimates, and prepare to get the trees dealt with this fall before winter. If there are trees around your home that are dangerous when there is a storm or when there is a lot of snow, you may want to get them removed before they cause damage.
7. Window Cleaning:
Now is a great time to tackle dirty windows and reach those hard-to-get-to places.
Summer is a great time to take on a few home maintenance projects that will leave you feeling more prepared and better equipped for the fall and winter!
