Did you know that there is more to your home’s exterior than just siding and paint? Sure, you may recognize that, but it should also be noted that your roof is also a part of the outside of your residence. After all, with no roof, your home’s interior would not be protected! (shocking, isn’t it?)
So, it is quite important to realize that you look after your home’s exterior. This doesn’t need to be part of this basic To Do list that you check off weekly, but it should definitely be part of that quarterly list! By doing so, you have a better chance of identifying home outdoor issues and being able to stay a step ahead of them – before they get full on issues that are expensive to repair (or will need to replace!) .
Gutters – The gutters of your home control the amount of rainwater reaches your home’s exterior and protect your roof in addition to your home’s siding. Be sure they are attached correctly and aren’t sagging anywhere. It is also important to clean them periodically so that there is no build up of debris.
Paint – Take some time to notice if you will need to touch an area or phone in a professional painting team. The condition of the paint job/siding will be one of the first thing people notice.
Siding – If you have vinyl siding, or one of its sister products, then you may wish to clean it off periodically using a pressure sprayer.
Windows – Be sure these aren’t just clean, but open and close as they’re designed to do.
Patio or deck – e sure that the boards are sound, and that any debris is swept from these. Does this look better, but you can prevent any damage caused by critters/pests. Be particularly vigilant against areas around windows and doors – were wood rot can occur. If you see damage near these locations, make sure to find someone to check it out and determine the actions to be taken.
Roofing/Shingles – Walk around your house and note any areas where shingles may have pulled off or are loose/missing. If you see any, repair them before they fall away and leave your home exposed to the elements of nature.
