5 Home Maintenance Tips for Spring

Here is a checklist to help target the areas of the home that need maintenance before spring arrives.


Salt Lake City, UT -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/15/2017 --After a cold, dark winter, the bright sun and warm winds of spring are a breath of fresh air. The only problem is all that sunshine highlights the leaf-filled gutters, cracked sidewalks and dead plants in last year's flower beds. Here is a checklist from hgtv.com to help target the areas of the home that need maintenance before spring arrives.

Inspect Roof Shingles

Take a look at the roof shingles to see if any were lost or damaged during winter. The summer sun can really damage roof shingles. Shingles that are cracked, buckled, loose or are missing granules should be replaced. Flashing around plumbing vents, skylights and chimneys should be checked and repaired by a qualified roofer.

To make getting on the roof safe and easy, consider something like this 12.5 ft Heavy Duty Commercial Grade Aluminum Telescopic Ladder. It is currently being offered as a daily deal on Yugster for just $69.97. It features locking pins at each step that allow users to easily extend the ladder or shorten it. At its full length of 12.5 feet, the ladder is secure and can support up to 330 lbs at an angle of 75 degrees from the ground.

Check Wood Trim

Use a screwdriver to probe the wood trim around windows, doors, railings and decks. Spring rains can do quite a bit of damage to the exposed wood so make repairs now before the damage is done. A Husky screwdriver set is on sale now at Home Depot for just $7.97,

Examine the Gutters

Check for loose or leaky gutters. Improper drainage can lead to water in the basement or crawl space. Make sure downspouts drain away from the foundation and are clear of debris.

Examine the Chimney

Examine the exterior of the chimney for signs of damage. Have the flue cleaned and inspected by a certified chimney sweep.

Check Outside Faucets

Inspect outside hose faucets for freeze damage. Turn the water on and place a finger over the opening. If water flow can be stopped, it is likely a sign the pipe inside the home is damaged and will need to be replaced.
