The cool and wet of early spring is the perfect time to tend to the less exciting home repair chores. While you’re waiting for the spring bulbs to pop and trees to blossom, take the time to evaluate any winter damage. Did you notice a draft in the house over the winter? Check your windows for repair or replacement. Add storms, weather strip or caulk. Change the filters on your furnace.
Have your chimneys cleaned. Clean out air conditioner filters and HVAC systems. Review your insulation to see if more might be needed. Take a look to make sure your roof didn’t sustain storm damage. Check out your gutters and downspouts to ensure they’re attached properly and are guiding rainwater away from the foundation.
When the snow melts, prep your lawn for spring work by ordering mulch for your garden beds and pruning your trees.
