3. Determine the condition of your siding – Winter weather is rough on exterior siding, the trim and the roof. Now is a great time to inspect the wood components, especially the siding, for wood rot and damage. Pay special attention to areas where paint is missing or chipping away and caulking may be needed. It’s much better to find and repair any rot when the damages are small because it will worsen over time.
4. Check your outside utilities and equipment – Reconnect hoses and check for leaks to make sure everything’s ready to wash the car and water the garden beds. Before your next cookout with family and friends check to make sure you outside electrical outlets are working.
With a little preparation, you and your home will be ready to beat the heat and have a comfortable and enjoyable summer season in the mountains.
