With the start of a new season, it’s time to check over your house and make sure it’s in tip-top shape to keep it looking nice for years to come. Summer is the perfect time to tackle those outdoor projects that have been on your to-do list for a few months, and we have created a handy home maintenance checklist to help get you started.
Touch up exterior paint. Give your home the facelift it needs and paint any spots that are looking worn from the winter and spring seasons.
Clean and inspect your siding. Buy, rent, or borrow a power washer and get to work cleaning off dirty siding to keep it looking fresh. While you’re at it, check and see if you have any loose or broken off pieces of siding. If it’s time for a complete overhaul, Leo Distributors can help with all of your siding needs. Call us today for a free estimate or stop in our showroom to see our huge siding display.
Clean or replace A/C and furnace filters. Your A/C unit will be on full blast this summer. Why not give it the help it needs to do its job and clean the filter? While you’re at it, check and see if your furnace filter needs replaced.
Rev up your lawn maintenance routine. This one may be obvious, but summer is the time to hop on your mower and shape up your lawn. It is also a great time to install a fire pit, plant a garden, and work on your landscaping. What does your dream backyard look like? It’s time to make it happen!
Clean or replace windows, screens, and doors. Clean, streak-free windows let in more light and make your house sparkle. Leo Distributors offers a variety of replacement window options when it’s time for something new. Summer is also the time to check over your doors, clean them, and see which ones need replaced. Leo Distributors offers steel and fiberglass entry and storm doors as well as replacement patio doors. Call us and see how we can help you.
Inspect outdoor play equipment and fencing. Repaint, reinforce, and tighten as needed. This is a great time to install play equipment for your little ones or put in a fence to let your dog roam free.
Deep clean your grill. After you grill up dinner, keep the grill on high for about a half an hour. Afterwards, let it cool and then brush it off with a grill brush. Wipe down the exterior with a damp sponge and gentle dish soap. Time for something new? Come to Leo Distributors and check out the The Good-One Smoker BBQ Grills.
