Here are a few projects you can begin today.
- Inspect your roof for damaged or missing shingles. If you notice any shingles cracked, loose or missing, have them replaced.
- Clean gutters using a stable ladder; remove any dirt, leaves or debris. Look for leaking gutters or cracks that may have happened during winter.
- Examine your deck for any rotting or warped wood, rust from old screws, loose screws or cracked floorboards. Now is a good time to also sand any rough patches, power wash and re-stain your deck.
- Clean your air conditioning unit or have a professional handle it. This is the perfect time to replace the air filter too.
- Take a look at your driveway, sidewalk and back patio for cracks in the concrete that need sealing.
- Walk around your yard and identify low-hanging branches that need trimming or uneven areas on the ground that need leveling.
- If you have a chimney, clean it out so it’s ready when you need to use it again next winter. If you plan to clean the chimney yourself, check out these tips from DIY Network.
