3 Tips For Spring Home Exterior Maintenance

Most homeowners consider spring the season of home maintenance. However, many still aren’t sure how to care for their properties properly. To fulfill your homeowner duties well, Gut-R-Dun Exteriors shares these tips:

 

 

Add Gutter Protection

The best form of care you can give your gutters and downspouts is making them virtually maintenance-free. Installing the right kind of gutter guard can prevent clogging up to a lifetime and eliminate the risks of cleaning. Offering a broad range of advanced gutter protection systems is part of our gutter and roofing services.

Even if you don’t mind unclogging your gutters and downspouts regularly, you should stop this practice because blockages could form at the worst possible time. With a smartly designed gutter guard, you can rest assured your roof has efficient drainage whenever there’s inclement weather.

Don’t Wait for Leaks

Lack of roof leaks isn’t the same as lack of problems. Generally, leakage happens when there’s a long-standing, unaddressed issue. Since most red flags are unrecognizable to the untrained eye, it’s next to impossible to discover all causes for concern without scheduling professional inspections proactively. Preventive maintenance is key to head off major leaks and extend the service life of your roofing system.

Clean With Caution

When cleaning your siding, be mindful of the solution you’ll use. Water isn’t an effective cleaner at all times. Experts would say that plain water only works for dirt removal. When it comes to oil grease, and mildew, you need unique solutions to rid your siding of them.

If you have James Hardie® siding, use a soft cloth every time. Cleaning with an abrasive sponge or hard, metal brush might damage the finish, and nullify the product warranty.
