The weather looks awesome this weekend with temperatures climbing into the 70’s on sunday in Utica NY according to WKTV.com
With that being said, here are four tips for home improvement that you can get started on this weekend
Tip 1: Examine Roof Shingles
After winter it is important to inspect your roof shingles for any damaged or lost shingles that may have occurred from the harsh winter weather. Just as harsh as the snow can be the summer sun, responsible for damaging, cracking and buckling shingles. Getting those damaged shingles replaced before any further damage occurs is important and can be a fast, easy roofing repair job. While you have a quality roofing contractor inspecting your roof, be sure to look at flashing around plumbing vents, chimneys and skylights for potential repairs as well.
Tip 2: Gutter Inspection
While up near the roof, a gutter inspection should be your second thought. Leaky, loose or clogged gutters can cause water in the basement or crawl space. It’s also important to make sure that the drain spouts are pointing away from your foundation.
Tip 3: Service Your Heating and Cooling System
With the weather being comfortable (maybe the nights are still a bit cold) it is the perfect time to get your heating and cooling systems serviced to ensure that they work properly before the summer heat is in full swing. Changing out filters and running your AC now to find any possible problems can go a long way to prevent your home from being uncomfortable when AC season is in full swing.
Tip: Give That Yard Some Love!
A simple layer of mulch can go a long way to improve the appearance of your yard. While you are at it, fertilize and aerate your lawn to ensure a healthy, green luscious lawn for summer time parties.
