Spring Home Maintenance Checklist: 7 Expert Handyman Tips to Add Now

February 28, 2024

As spring approaches, it's the perfect time to give your home some much-needed care and attention. Our expert handyman team shares five tips to ensure your home is in top shape all season long.

  1. Check Sprinklers: Proper irrigation is essential for a healthy lawn and garden. Before the growing season kicks into full gear, inspect your sprinkler system for any leaks, clogs, or damage. Adjust the settings for efficient watering.
  2. Inspect Roof: Check for any signs of damage or missing shingles on your roof. Addressing issues early can prevent leaks and costly repairs later on. (Psst: our upcoming membership perk is a roof inspection.)
  3. Secure Underhouse Access: As temperatures rise, pests like rodents seek cooler shelter. Secure underhouse access points with sturdy screens or barriers to protect against damage and unwanted pests.
  4. Inspect Heating and Cooling Equipment: With warmer weather on the horizon, now is a good time to schedule professional servicing for your air conditioning system. A well-maintained AC ensures optimal performance, improved indoor air quality, and increased energy efficiency.
  5. Touch-up paint: Winter weather can take a toll on your home’s exterior. Walk around your property to spot areas needing touch-up paint and wood surface repairs before the sun can cause damage.
  6. Install vent screens: In the spring, birds are more active and might look for nesting spots. Prevent birds from roosting in your home by installing vent screens for proper ventilation.
  7. Overseed patchy areas: Fill in bare spots on your lawn by spreading new grass seeds. This easy task will make sure your yard looks lush and green when the next season arrives.

With these seven spring home maintenance tips, you can ensure your home is ready to face the season ahead with peace of mind. From ensuring your air conditioning system is in top condition to protecting against unwanted pests, these simple tasks will help you enjoy a safe, comfortable, and worry-free home throughout the spring and beyond.
