3. Check your roof and pavement
After snowstorms, hail, freezing rain, and more mixed weather conditions happen, it’s easy to say it can all take a toll on your roof. As it’s warming up outside, pull out your ladder and make a visual inspection of your roof. Keep a lookout for missing or damaged shingles and metal pipes. If anything doesn’t seem right, it might be worth it to call a roofer for further inspection or repair. The cold weather can also affect any concrete surfaces and asphalt on your driveway so be prepared to schedule patch or complete repairs.
4. Repaint your exterior
All this water can cause damage to your wooden fence and your home’s exterior, especially if they weren’t painted and protected previously. This can seem tedious and exhausting especially when choosing paint colours but by making it a fun, family activity, you’ll be able to customize your house to make it feel even more like home. At the same time, you’ll be protecting these surfaces come winter.
5. Check your sprinkler and irrigation system
As we begin to see more greenery rise, that also means maintaining it so make sure to check that your sprinkler and irrigation system is working well. You can do this by running the system through all zones manually and observing that each nozzle is functioning well. Adjust the heads to spray particular areas in order to check that they work. If you’re unsure how to maintain a sprinkler system, call a professional. You’ll save money on your water bill and protect one of our most valuable natural resources.
