Spring Prep Tips for Homeowners

by | Mar 26, 2024 | Blog

As we head into spring, preparing your home for the season’s challenges is essential, especially with seasonal rain and thunderstorms on the way. 

With that in mind, here are six insights to safeguard your home against seasonal fluctuations.

1. Roof readiness

Inspect your roof for signs of winter damage. Look for loose or missing shingles that might give way under heavy spring rains. This is crucial for all homes, regardless of age, as even newer constructions can have weak points.

2. Examine the siding

Ice, hail, and wind can be tough on house siding. Check for any damage that might have gone unnoticed, which could lead to structural issues or water leaks during heavy rains. Some common signs of damage include paint discoloration, cracks, and warping. 

3. Gutter maintenance

Cleaning your gutters is vital. Debris accumulated during winter can hinder proper water diversion, a must for effectively managing spring showers.

4. HVAC check

Service your HVAC system to clear out dust and debris accumulated over winter. This improves efficiency, saves on costs, and benefits allergy sufferers in your household as spring flowers, trees, and plants bloom.

5. Pest patrol

Winter may have brought uninvited critters seeking shelter in your home. Conduct a thorough inspection to ensure you’re not hosting any unwelcome guests.

6. Insurance review

Now is an opportune time to review your homeowners insurance policy to ensure it reflects any changes or upgrades to your home.

We hope these tips are helpful. Ultimately, putting off spring maintenance can lead to more significant issues later—a little effort now can go a long way in preserving your home’s integrity and comfort!
