Spring Maintenance Checklist

1. Inspect Roof

Check for any loose or damaged shingles. Look for signs of wear, cracks, leakage, or mold.

2. Clean Gutters and Downspouts

Remove debris such as leaves, twigs, and dirt to ensure proper drainage and prevent water damage.

3. Inspect Siding

Look for cracks, holes, or signs of damage in need of repair. Clean siding with a pressure washer if necessary.

4. Check Foundation

Look for cracks or signs of settling. Address any issues promptly to prevent further damage.
