The 4 Seasons of Home Repair: A Checklist

Annual home repair not only creates a happier living environment, but also saves money in the long run and keeps your home looking and functioning great. With this year-round home-maintenance checklist, you can keep up-to-date on all your homeowner needs.

Fall

Everyone knows spring-cleaning is essential, but not many know that fall cleaning is just as important. With cold weather approaching, living in a tidy, well-maintained house will make you and your family feel safe and secure for upcoming months. Use the fall cleaning checklist to guarantee you don’t overlook a single home improvement task this year.

  • Winterizing – seal up house and drafty spaces indoors and out with caulk & sealant
  • Fall yard cleanup & gutters
  • Tree trimming

Winter

Winter can be one of the hardest times of year to keep up-to-date on all of our home-owning needs. With the holidays approaching, we still feel the pressure to keep our homes looking great for our guests. With this winter-cleaning checklist, you can ensure your home is beautiful and festive throughout the dreaded winter months.

  • Routine maintenance – cleaning hard to reach places, changing internal and external lightbulbs
  • Winter holiday decorating
  • Carbon Monoxide and Smoke detector checks
  • Clean clothes dryer vent

Spring

Spring-cleaning has been a tradition in American culture for years, and is important for both health and cleanliness reasons. If you live in cooler climates, chances are your home has been closed up for winter – leaving the carpets dingy and the yard a mess. With this spring-cleaning checklist, you’ll never have to worry about missing another spot.

  • Spring cleaning – hard to reach places
  • Gutters – clean those out
  • Peak moving season for renters and buyers
  • Chimney repair

Summer

By the time summer rolls around, most of your spring-cleaning efforts have probably gone out the window. The kids track in dirt and grass, the pets bring unexpected smells, and the house loses some of its luster. Even the allergens in the air are hard to deal with. The summer is a peak season for preventive work on your home, and a good summer cleaning is the best way to feel refreshed and revitalized.

  • Painting season
  • Roofing season
  • Windows
  • Siding installation
  • Repair rotted wood – siding/decks
