Follow this Home Maintenance Checklist to Ensure the Big Projects are Accomplished

Maintaining your home is a must. If you do not maintain your home you are going to need to spend a lot of money on repairs. We have a checklist to tell you what you should do and when so that you are not so overwhelmed all at one point. Having a checklist can help you make sure you get what you need to get done, done.

In the Spring

In the spring, most of us want to do our house spring cleaning, however, you should be doing the same outdoors. You should clean up any leaves and debris leftover from the winter. You should also have your trees inspected to ensure they have not contracted any illnesses. This is also the time where you should fill in bald spots on your lawn and plant your perennials.

Outside you want to make sure that your gutters are clear of debris. If you have clogged gutters, you could have problems. It is at this time that you should inspect your roof. You should make sure that your roof is clean and that it doesn’t need repairs. If you are unsure of what you are looking for, contact a Denver Roofing Contractor.

In the Summer

You should be enjoying your home and your yard in the summer. There should be little projects that should have to be done. You do want to make sure that your plants are watered and your lawn is trimmed. You may also want to have your sprinkler system serviced as well.

If you are looking to do outside work, the best thing to do is to paint your home or your deck in the summer.

In the Fall

In the fall the leaves begin to fall and the weather is getting cooler, however, fall doesn’t give you a huge to-do list. You should be sure that you are taking care of your garden and harvesting the items you need to. You should ensure that plants are watered before they go dormant. You should also make sure that your yard is clear of leaves. Leaves can cause damage to your lawn if snow is landing on top of it. Instead of raking, you could mow the leaves and leave them on your lawn. The smaller pieces provide nutrients to your lawn throughout the winter. Larger leaves are harder for the lawn to break down.

In the Winter

Winter is mostly just trying to stay warm. The weather is very unpredictable which makes home improvement projects hard. You should be bringing out your snow blower and stocking up on supplies. This includes salt for melting ice and other things that you may need if there is a storm. Make sure that your home is ready for the cold weather. You want to have your heating system checked and your pipes. You do not want to have your pipes frozen. Winter storms could leave you in your home for days, make sure you have enough materials to get through a storm if one were to happen.
