Spring is the perfect time to give your home's exterior some much-needed attention. While many of us focus on tidying up the interiors of our homes during Spring cleaning, it's just as important to take care of the exterior! Here's our checklist to get you started:

1. Visual Inspection

Begin by visually inspecting you siding and roofing for any signs of damage, including cracks, holes, missing shingles or loose siding. Look for areas where paint may be peeling or where the siding may be warped or discolored. Check for signs of water damage, including water stains and mold growth, which can indicate leaks or poor drainage. See something you're concerned about?

2. Clean Gutters and Downspouts:

Now is the perfect time to ensure proper drainage of your gutters. Clear out any debris, such as leaves, twigs, or dirt. Clogged gutters can lead to water overflow, which can damage both your siding and roofing.

3. Clean Siding:

Use a pressure washer to clean dirt, grime, and mildew from your siding. Start from the top and work your way down. Be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid leaving any residue behind.

5. Trim Nearby Foliage:

Trim any overhanging branches or foliage near your home's exterior, as they an rub against your siding or roof and cause damage. Additionally, trimming trees can help prevent leaves and debris from accumulating on your roof.
