It's Spring...Is your home ready?

Home ready for Spring? Here are some maintenance tips that you may wish to consider or check out. Thanks to Elevate Home Warranty for sharing these ideas!

1) Examine roof shingles to see if any were lost or damaged during winter.

2) Check for loose or leaky gutters. Improper drainage can lead to water in basements or crawl spaces.

3) Check outside hose faucets/bibs for freeze damage, and the garden hose for dry rot. (Never leave them on the bib during the winters! learned the hard way on two...)

4) Hard water on windows? Here's a recipe to get it off: Fill a spray bottle half full with vinegar. Fill the remaining half with a 50/50 mixture of dish soap and lemon juice. (1/2 bottle vinegar; 1/4 bottle of soap; 1/4 bottle lemon juice)

Spray on, wait 10 minutes, scrub with brush, rinse. Your windows will be wonderful!

What ideas or Spring tips do you have? Do share. I'll update this post with your additions.
