While most of us are able to control the inside environment of your homes, such as humidity, temperature and lighting, we have limited control over the outside factors, such as weather, pests or natural occurrences. As a homeowner, it is mandatory to do everything in your power to protect your house from external threats.
Here are 5 mandatory home exterior maintenance tips to give you the peace of mind that your living environment is safe.
1. Examine Roof Shingles
It is important, especially during this time of year – April, to examine roof shingles if some of them were damaged during the cold season. The summer sun can also damage your roof shingles, so you might want to consider replacing your roof. Shingles that are buckled, cracked or loose have to be replaced if you want to protect your home against external weather.
2. Check the Gutters
Leaky or loose gutters lead to improper drainage which can result in water pouring down into your basement. Check your gutters regularly to ensure that your house is protected against the dangerous weather.
3. Windows and Doors
Your windows and doors may need to stay maintained, especially if they are made of wood. Additionally, you might want to check the caulking that seals the gaps that appear between your home’s siding and the doors or windows.
4. Take a Look at the Decks & Porches
In order to stay protected from outside weather, you need to take a closer look at your decks and porches. Depending on the material they’re made of, you should use the necessary measures to ensure they will last long in time.
5. Stay Protected Against Pests
