Outdoor Summer Maintenance Checklist

Outdoor Summer Maintenance Checklist

Summer, nice weather and days spent outside under the sun are finally here! This is a great time to do a once over of your home’s exterior to make sure that everything is ready for all of your parties, barbecues, and get-togethers you’ll be hosting all throughout the season.

1. Inspect Your Roof

The best way to make sure that your roof is in tip-top shape is by hiring a professional to perform a full inspection. However, you can perform a roof inspection yourself if you wish. If you’re going the DIY route, start by inspecting from the ground up and look for any signs of sagging and aging. Make sure to identify areas where moss or algae are growing as these are both signs of excess moisture and potential water damage. Additionally, if you notice any curled shingles, this could be a sign of air leaks coming from your attic.

2. Check on Your Deck

As the summer months roll around, now is a great time to check on your deck and see if there are any rotting boards that need to be replaced, or loose nails that need to be hammered down. You can also reseal it to prevent future wood rot or deterioration.

3. Wash the Windows

Now that you don’t have to worry about the water freezing anymore, take this time to wash your windows, both the glass and the mesh screens. Cleaning the mesh screens will not only make the exterior and interior of your home look nicer, but it will also keep unwanted particles and contaminants from entering your home.
