When you're buying a new home, it's important to think about how you'll stay on top of routine home maintenance, especially as the seasons change. Here, we'll take a look at some of the home maintenance tasks you will want to add to your to-do list as a new homeowner.
Your Spring Maintenance Checklist
Be sure you can check off each of these items as you prepare your home for spring:
Get out for a walk around your property.
It may have been a while since you spent a decent amount of time outside. Take your time examining the foundation of your property, walkways, and landscaping. You'll likely need to have some work done, especially if it's been a very cold winter. Don't forget to bring a notepad — you'll want to write down any areas that need attention.
Examine your roof.
Check your roof for stains (a sign of algae), damaged shingles or cracks. Reach out to a roofing professional if you see work that needs to be done, or if you aren’t comfortable inspecting it yourself.
Maintain your air conditioning unit.
Look at your AC unit, replace filters, and clean vents. While this work can be a bit tedious, don't skip it — a clean AC unit means lower cooling bills and improved air quality for you and your family.
Make a landscaping plan.
This is a great time to start fresh with your landscaping! Whether you complete your landscaping on your own or you hire a professional, take a fresh look at your home and create a plan to spruce up your yard and entryway.
