Home Maintenance Quick Tips

Every house is different, but there are some common elements every homeowner can include on a regular maintenance list:

  • Check the grading and drainage around the foundation
  • Seal driveway and walkway cracks
  • Check fencing and gates
  • Check and trim trees near the house
  • Check for deteriorating/damaged siding
  • Check for loose, damaged, or missing roofing and flashings
  • Clean all gutters and leaders
  • Check weather-stripping and seals on all windows and doors
  • Insulate water lines that are subject to freezing
  • Check condition of the water heater
  • Check ventilation openings for nests, blockage

While this list is not comprehensive, it's a good start to identifying some potential trouble spots in any home. Remember, these tips are only general guidelines.
