Tips To Prepare Your Home For Spring

After the harsh winter, you need remodeling of your house because winters can harm your home in the ways that are not visible. It is suggested to all homeowners to inspect their homes for all possible damages and hire a professional for the maintenance of impaired parts, says NAHB Remodeler Chair Paul Sullivan. Follow these precautions before the spring storms make the conditions worse.

Give a grim look at the roof and watch for shingles and cracks. Make sure that chimneys are properly intact and all flashing areas are tight and properly sealed.

Leakage:

Usually, water pipes are broken due to freezing temperature, make sure to change them, if needed. Look for the signs of water heater collision and damages under the sinks.

Repair gutters:

Remove all the debris caused by winter storms from the gutters and downspouts. Broken or blocked gutters can cause the water to enter the house. With this in mind, be sure to clean before the situation gets worse.

Check all the window and doors.

Check the sides of the windows and ensure that they are watertight. Winter chilly winds usually damage the frames of the windows. Replace them to make sure that doors are properly sealed.  

Check all the dryer vents.

Cleaning of Air filters.

Change light bulbs.

Replace your regular light bulbs to fluorescent bulbs, as they are more energy saving and reduce your electricity bill.  Moreover, these compact bulbs give less heat that reduces the amount of heat that it produces.     

More plantations:

Plant a tree in your garden next to your air conditioner vent, it can help your conditioner to work more efficiently, plus it will keep your environment healthy.

Repaint:

Retouching your paint exterior will not only make the house look better, but it also saves your house from different obstructions.

Inspect air conditioners:

Hire an electrician to inspect your air conditioner to make sure that it is working properly or not before heat waves strike the atmosphere.
