Spring is here! We all love to see Spring all around us and to get ready for summer. But keep in mind that Spring is one of the last chances you may have to get important work done around the house before the really warm months come. So what should be toward the top of your list?

Here are a few things from the perspective of a home inspector that should be on your list of things to do:

  • Gutters – Spring means more rain, and more rain means… well, more water. SO make sure your gutters are clean and drain properly.
  • Vegetation – trees, bushes, and anything else should be kept at least 18 inches from the house
  • Painting – paint is your first line of defense against the sun and other issues. Be sure to touch up any bare or peeling spots
