Here are some exterior home maintenance projects you should take care of this year:
Maintaining the deck
Pressure washing your deck each spring will reduce wear and tear on the wood by clearing away any mold, moss, algae, insects and other debris.
While you are cleaning off the deck, check the deck boards for any damaged or rotten planks and have them repaired or replaced. You should also inspect the steps and railing system to make sure every board is strong and sturdy.
Depending on the type of deck you have, this year might be the year to stain or paint the deck. Staining your cedar wood deck will protect it while giving it that rich, warm tone. If your wood deck has peeling paint, giving it a fresh coat will ensure it’s protected and that it isn’t diminishing your home’s exterior aesthetics. These are jobs that Mr. Handyman can help you with!
Cleaning out and repairing the gutters
Did you know that your eavestroughs play a critical role in your home’s drainage system? When water from rain comes running down the roof, it needs to be collected in the gutters and brought away from your home via the downspouts. If the gutters are leaking, damaged or have come away from the home, it might cause water to just pour down directly beside your home. If that water pools, there is a chance it can penetrate your home’s foundation, causing moisture or even flooding in the basement. Now that is an expensive repair!
Contact Mr. Handyman to come clean out your gutters so that your home’s drainage system works properly. If you suspect your gutters are damaged, they can help you with that too.
Checking and repairing damaged soffit and fascia
The soffit is the surface located beneath your rafter tails and the fascia is the exposed, horizontal surface you see at the end of the rafters just under your gutters. Not only do they help with curb appeal, soffits have vents in them to help ventilate your attic while keeping pests out if at the same time. If your soffits and fascia are in disrepair, your home might be unprotected. Learn why soffits and fascia are important.
Mr. Handyman offers siding, soffit and fascia repair. If these parts of your home have suffered damage due to aging or constant exposure to moisture, they can come fix and/or replace them for you to get your home’s exterior back into great shape!
