Spring Spruce Up: 5 Areas To Maintain Around Your Home Before Summer

Winter weather and the stormy days of spring in the South Charlotte area can be brutal on your house. Now is the time of year to inspect different parts of your home and assess any damage, repairs, or upgrades necessary to keep your home in tip-top shape. Here are a few things to look out for around your house that could signify it’s time for some spring maintenance.

Prep Your Deck

Our Mr. Handyman of South Charlotte team has been busy helping homeowners prep their decks and patios. Look for loose, warped boards that need replacing and be sure to inspect railings and stairs for damage. If your deck is looking a little dated and worn, now is a great time to let our team clean, stain, and reseal it just in time for summer BBQs.

Examine Your Chimney

Don’t forget to add your chimney to the inspection list! Ongoing chimney problems can lead to costly repairs down the road. Check the joints between bricks or stones. Look for loose or fallen pieces, cracks, or vegetation that could signify signs of trouble.

Replace Rotted Siding or Trimming

Good curb appeal starts with a beautiful home exterior! Watch out for signs of rot, crumbling, and cracks around your outdoor trim and siding. Depending on the damage, it might be time to replace or repaint your siding and trim. Our professionals can also fix any problems you may have with your siding—regardless of whether it is vinyl, aluminum, wood shingles, composite, or other.

Look For Leaks

Tubs with bad caulking let the water go behind walls and under the floors, damaging wood and wallboard and even the basement or downstairs ceiling. Restore the looks of your tub, stop water damage and prevent mold with professional caulking service from our experienced home improvement professionals.

Refresh With Power Washing

By power washing your deck, siding, driveway, and other exterior areas around your home, you can quickly and effectively remove built-up dirt, sediment, and other debris. Not only does this help the areas look beautiful, but it can also reduce wear and tear by getting rid of mold, algae, chalk, insects, weeds, and more. Such build-up will, over time, break down and cause damage.
