Repeat after us, everyone. We’re almost there. Winter is almost gone. This time of year is tough on residents that get their hopes up on particularly warm days, only to feel disheartened when the temperature plummets the next. We make it through the unpredictable weather of March every year, but that doesn’t make it any easier after another long, cold winter season. Why not take your mind off of your cabin fever by ensuring that your home has made it through the winter season unscathed?
Before the heat of summer arrives in full, springtime presents you with a great opportunity for dealing with the multitude of issues that can develop around your property over time. Our team offers some truly great home improvement services in Dayton, OH. Take advantage of them before getting distracted by the fun of the summer season.
How’s the Roof Looking?
Your roof, obviously, is exposed to the elements all year long. From the rains of spring to the hot summer sun beating down on it to the onslaught of snow and the result melting of that snow, your roof really has a tough job of it. Before moving into the summer season, check on your roof to see if any shingles were lost during the winter, or if any flashing suffered damages. If your shingles are already compromised, the effects of the summer sun can be amplified.
How Are Your Gutters Holding Up?
You probably don’t think about your rain gutters all that often, at least not until a problem develops with them. It is always a good idea to clean out your gutters after the leaves fall in autumn, but they can also be damaged due to snow and ice in the winter season. Look for gutters that are leaking, or even that have just come loose from their securings.
Inspect Your Windows and Doors, Too
Did you feel drafts coming from any of your window or door frames this winter? If so, it is possible that you were paying too much to heat your home throughout the season. There’s nothing that you can do about that now, but you can prevent the same issue from following you into the summer months. If you need windows and doors replaced, now is a great time to have that service completed, before your AC goes into regular rotation.
Schedule Air Conditioning Maintenance
We are not going to be using our air conditioners consistently for a while yet. Do not let this lull you into a state of inaction, though. You definitely want to have your air conditioner maintained on an annual basis, if you hope to get the best performance that it has to offer. We’ll talk about this a bit more as the summer heat draws nearer, but scheduling service sooner than later is definitely in your best interest.
