The Checklist

  • HVAC Tune-Up: Georgia’s summers are hot, so service your HVAC early. Clean or replace filters, and check the coolant levels to keep your system efficient during those humid months ahead.
  • Gutter Clearance: Remove any buildup of pine needles and leaves from your gutters. Ensure downspouts drain away from the foundation to prevent water intrusion.
  • Roof Check: Inspect for any storm damage from winter. Look for loose or missing shingles, especially after any late winter storms, and address repairs promptly.
  • Seal and Caulk: The fluctuating temperatures can cause seals to crack. Inspect and re-caulk around windows and doors to boost insulation and keep cool air in.
  • Foundation Inspection: Examine for any new cracks or shifts in your foundation, a common issue in Georgia’s clay soil, especially after the winter moisture.
  • Landscaping: Start pruning your trees and shrubs. Georgia’s spring growth can be vigorous, so shaping your landscape now can control growth and enhance curb appeal.
  • Exterior Maintenance: Check for peeling or chipped paint, which can be more than cosmetic – it’s also about protecting your home’s siding from the elements.
  • Safety Checks: Replace batteries in smoke detectors and ensure your carbon monoxide detectors are functioning, especially if you used gas heating over the winter.
  • Deck Inspection: Prepare for those BBQs by inspecting your deck or patio for any necessary repairs. Look for warped, loose, or splintered boards, and consider re-staining or sealing.
  • Pest Prevention: As the weather warms, pests become more active. Consider a pest control service to prevent infestations, particularly termites, which can be prevalent in Georgia.

Ticking these tasks off your list now can set you up for a carefree summer, ensuring your home stays in top shape for the season of sun and fun. If you have any questions or need assistance, remember, we’re just a call away.
