Spring is here!!! It’s time to put away the snow shovels and bags of ice melt. Mowing season will be here before you know it. Here’s a helpful checklist for spring outdoor maintenance:
Outdoor lights-are they in working order
Mailboxes-are there any missing numbers; is it leaning, rusting, paint chipping. Do you need a new one or just need to spruce it up?
The exterior of your home-
House Numbers-are any numbers missing, do they need to be touched up if painted on
Shutters-are they secure, faded, any missing
Gutters-are they secure, clogged, sagging or missing
Roof-any missing shingles, mold, any sagging areas
Siding-any loose panels, mold, cracks
Door and Window Trim-paint faded, peeling or chipped
Decks/porches-mold, loose rails or raised nails
Driveway-cracks that need filling, does your HOA require you to seal your driveway,
A/C unit-have you scheduled annual maintenance, is it free of debris from the winter winds
Flower beds, shrubs and trees-do they need to be weeded, mulched, trimmed
Please be sure to check your HOA’s ARB, ARC Guidelines, Handbooks and/or Deed of Dedication/Declaration, Covenants and/or rules before making any changes to your home.
